It was such a lovely sunny day to kick-start my BMW G310R’s. It was about 6 00 AM when I started from Chennai, my bags were packed with a pack of chocolates, few biscuit packets, three energy drinks and two water bottles.
Crossing Koyembedu at 6.30 AM where I saw the crowd waiting for bus to reach their destinations, but why should I worry when I have a companion ? Roads were bumpy but still my G310R went through at it’s best with the upside down forks. Riding through the NH 32 at a speed of 80 KMPh and there is nothing better than crusing this highway with lighter traffic near the toll.
Taking a break at Chengalpattu for 10 minutes after a travel time of 1 Hour 15 minutes (depends upon the traffic) and getting back to the ride merging on to the villupuram service road NH 132 and again getting the G310R set back to NH38 covering till ulundurpet flyover.
Nothing can be better than the empty roads to cruise at 100 KMph at ulundurpet highway for the next few KMs.
It was around 3 when I reached Coimbatore. It was a hot day to start from Chennai but ended up with chill and a relaxing climate on reaching Coimbatore.
The maximum speed I went through was at 120 KMph where still the bike managed to give a good response without vibrations with a fuel effiency engine, the bike managed to claim 35 KMPL which I did not expect from a 300cc Engine.
