Guys, big GRIN on my face while writing this post. This post is bout the road trip from Udupi to Gadag on my Unicorn. I and Shaanib went for the road trip. Shaanib is my senior in office, he is a nice chap. He rides bike like hell, I get goose bumps whenever I sit behind him.
The trip was done on April 30. The route we took was like this, Udupi – Kundapur – Marvanthe – Bhatkal – Honnavar – Jog Falls (Yes, Jog falls) – Sirsi – Mundgod – Hubli – Gadag.
I am just writing the events, which happened in the series.
I got up at 5.30 (Slept at around 2, after some office stint), did namaz. Had freaking cold bath, and took all the required documents and went to Shaanib’s place. Even he was ready, looked at time, it was already 6.40.
Went to Hotel Khushi (its near office), had tea and started the trip, reset the trip meter.
And here we Go..!!!

I rode 1st, started the bike. Felt something different, as we started to move. Fully charged up, in no time we crossed Santhekatte, and I saw the open road. Dude, it’s NH 17. It’s my one of the favorite road. As we left in the morning there was less traffic, and throughout the road there is lot of greenery. And we encountered loads of bridges. Uni was just cruising in-terms of 80. Believe me, you get nice feeling when you are around 60 – 80 in my bike. Uni is damn stable, cruises like hell. (Vin, I know R1, I agree… But I had Uni for this road trip).
Rode for a few min, saw bike trip odo it was already saying some 25. We looked at the sky, clouds started to gather on NH. I was worried bout what next. Thought if it rains we will stop at Kundapur. I just prayed not to rain. In no time we crossed Kundapur, once we crossed Kundapur clouds started to disappear and we saw the sunshine. God answered ma prayers :-). Reached Kamat Upachar near Marvanthe, had breakfast. I think Shaanib loved it.
Marvanthe Beach: This beach is beside NH 17, which stretches along the highway for 2 kms or something. So these are the snaps.
Bhatkal: After some break in Marvanthe (Shaanib tried for roadies stunt), we reached Bhatkal. Went Anjuman Engg College, this is where Shaanib did his B.E. So our old man went to his college, Continue reading “Road Trip To Gadag.”
