    I think its more to do with the road conditions and the wind at those speeds..

    Unfortunately, I have moved to EGL recently. I recognized your car because of those 2 stickers on your Linea's gate.
    If I come to Manyata anytime, We can meet.

    My White Fang running report : Bangalore to Bellary Trip

    Date : 15th Dec 09
    Time : 8:40 AM(Yes it was 8:40AM when I left my house)
    Distance to go : 320 KMS
    Average

    Dec 15th
    It was a long time since I went on long drives. I never planned anything for long trips when I had my indica. Just fill diesel and leave. After the purchase of the linea, my long trips have not worked out well. Everytime I plan, something or the other would crop up and the plan would get postponed. Well this time it looks like everything will go as planned.

    My earlier plan was to leave at 5:30 in the morning and as usual there was delay since I had drop my kids at school by 8 and the journey actually started at 8:40 from home.

    The used the NICE route on the magadi road to connect to the tumkur road. The tumkur to nelamangala was bad with full of traffic and lot of road work happening. Filled up the tank near nelamangala and started the journey to bellary.

    The roads are fantastic from nelamangala to bellary. The speeds maintained were around 3 digit figures(100+) and this is the road where I crossed 140 on the linea.

    Reached home at bellary around 2:30 PM. Lunch was ready and had a full feast.

    Dec 16th
    Had lot of relatives to visit. In the afternoon, there was not much to do. Hmmm.. I have an aunt who stays somewhere near kampli.. some 45 kms from bellary.

    Boy.. do I want to do this trip again on a car.. No way.. There were no roads after taking diversion from the hospet road. The recent rains in bellary proved to be very fatal and there was a bridge broken down. The authorities had rebuilt the bridge(temporarily) and the route was best suited for tractors and lorries and buses.

    This is the only time I wished I had a high GC vehicle.( not necessarily a safari. a jeep would have been very ideal) especially for this route.

    The return route from kampli to bellary was taken on a different route. This was the road which joins the SH siruguppa. The roads are being built on this route too, but way better than the other route I took to reach kampli.

    Date : 17th Dec 09
    Time : 9:40 AM

    My return journey from bellary to blore. There are lot of memories during this trip. I wanted to test the mileage on a very sedative drive(but tempatation kills everything especially with a car like this). All the way I was allowing each and every car to overtake me and sometimes I felt what the heck, there is no one on the road in front of me and there is no one who is chasing me, is this the chance.. yes.. i push the throtle slowly and reach speed of 120+ and then what I see.. I am close to hitting 160.. aiyo the road is taking a curve... i slow down and enter the curve in speeds around 120+. Well there is some satisfaction now.. man I can do 160 aramse on this car and next thing in my mind is.. do I want to do it everytime.. may be not.. but occasionally yes... All said and done.. now I am back crusing happily around 90+. My return journey is longer than my journey to bellary. I stop by near Sira to take some lovely pics. All is see is clouds clouds clouds and nothing else.. I halt at the Sira kamat to munch something. I have a nice masala dosa and sambhar vada and nice chai. Boy.. I am ready again for the drive.

    The speed breakers to watch out is on the tumkur bye pass road.. A very dangerous one .. I see all the cars scraping .. man is there no standard for the speed breakers. These contractors should be sued for putting up speedbreakers which are non standards.

    All is well that ends well. Reach home around 4 and drink a good home made chai..
