    Kolhapur - Miraj is only the route with more traffic.
    Miraj- Pandharpur is not much traffic prone.You will enjoy the drive,bit boring.

    Thank you for the Info Kedar. It surely does help to monitor the speedo. In-laws are with me, sure they wont allow me to touch triple digits ;)

    Driven 5 days and covered 1955 KMS, it was a wonderful trip. Jet was a good companion throughout the trip, never felt tiredness.

    Driven on NH4, NH13, NH17, NH63, NH218, NH204, NH206 and few SH roads, Ghats and some horrible roads, I am sure lower arms might need replacements.

    Bangalore - Kolhapur - Pandhapur - Bijapur - Almatti - Sangama - Aihole - Pattadakal - Badami - Gokarna - Beach - Bangalore

    We were 4 adults and 2 kids plus full luggage. Jet returned average mileage of 16.7 KMPL, best was 18 (Bangalore to Kolhapur 615 KMS) worst was 14 this is between few SH roads. While returning to Bangalore have hit 140+ average speed is 50 KPH

    You are correct, we experienced the same.

    Roads were not so good. It was all patch work :(
