    There is always something in the ride. As I say, my first car and I have not driven extensively any other car but I do enjoy how the ride feels. At around 90 KM/H a small nudge and you can make the car move exactly the way you want it to.

    @pabhishek Not too many pictures I had taken. We were just enjoying the evening walk and the food. Have stopped putting pics of my ride - seem to get a ding every time I post his pic. Superstitious I know but all for "Odin".

    Additional point I forgot to mention on the route -

    Bangalore - Hosur - Krishnagiri - Ambur - Vellore - Arcot - Cheyyar - Vandavasi - Tindivanam - Pondi

    The route was very good for most of the ride - even the state highways. However, please remember that you would encounter once in a while the crazy TN buses (green in color) and they drive like hell. I had two doing a race in one portion and charging toward me. Fortunately, they responded to my honking otherwise I was a goner.

    I left at around 6:30 in the morning from Bangalore and around 8:30 from Pondi
