Hi Guys, I just completed a trip from Pune to Kannur. Left Pune on morning of Sept 29th, 5:00 am. Took a brief halt at murudeshwar and left for mookambika. Stayed overnight at mookambika, kollur. I have reached Kannur today at around 5:30pm. Could not hold back the excitement , so starting the thread today Major Updates : Roads are pretty good at most of the places. Punto says avg speed of 55Kmph and travel time of 18hrs, 19KMPL . Bhatkal to kundapura Road is pathetic. A fishing rod is more suitable for this patch. Something on the windshield caused a blurred vision as if oil had spilled and I had a tough time driving in the drizzle. I later cleaned in with newspaper and glass stayed clear. I will check it tomorrow again .Please avoid this road after sunset. Route Taken : Pune, Maharashtra to Murudeshwara, Karnataka - Google Maps Car update : minor issue : At Kolhapur, I found the plastic pad under the right front fender melted. Seems like the pad had a loose screw and the tire rubbed against it causing it to melt away. I had complained about the missing screw during my last service, but then screw was not available and I thought it won't matter much. I think I can wait till I am back. The engine guard sheet did rub at many places, I haven't done a detailed inspection yet. I will give details of the trip once I am back from my vacation. If any TFI'an is planning for a trip via this road within the next 10 days , you can post your Qs here. I will provide as much info as possible. Thanks, Srijit.
