@VijayakumarR any update
Reached home safe and sound .
The ride was so pleasant. No problem what so ever. Enjoyed driving to the fullest. Was able to manage an healthy average of 100kmph for most part of the journey. The road conditions was equally good all along the trip. The stretch in Karnataka was the best though. With the road conditions at its best and free of traffic, had to try really hard for restricting myself from stepping on the accelerator. Always managed to limit myself under 110kmph even on an empty road.
The route was also quite simple, Mumbai-Pune Express Way- then NH4 all the way to Bengaluru- NICE ring road- Hosur-Dharmapuri-Salem-Coimbatore. My MapMyIndia LX345 made it even more simple and was really helpful too.
My entire trip was split in two days with a halt in Chithorgarh.
