Hello!

In regards to Aditya ji's route to Mumbai from Kolkata, I would suggest this route: https://www.google.co.in/maps/dir/Kolka ... !3e0?hl=en

Notes:
1) On this route, I didn't take the part from Cuttack to Sambhalpur part on my recent trip to the Konkan from Coochbehar in February. According to the informations from Truck Drivers, Fuel Stations and Toll Booths, there were some major road repairing works in this ghat portion.
2) The road from Aurangabad to Shirdi Bypass is also not in great shape. But it will be better for bikes than for a 4 wheeler.
3) There will be some congestions around Raipur and a section couple of Kilometres + after crossing Raipur is having deep craters on the road, so be careful.
4) Rest of the roads are very good and except for some ghat sections, rest are all 4 or 6 lanes.

DAY-WISE PLAN:
Day 1: Kolkata to Bhadrak
Day 2: Bhadrak to Sambhalpur
Day 3: Sambhalpur to Raipur
Day 4: Raipur to Nagpur
Day 5: Nagpur to Mehkar
Day 6: Mehkar to Shirdi
Day 7: Shirdi to Mumbai

Final update!

Aditya is finally home after the monumental 35,000 km journey across 3 continents and 15 countries! I had the distinguished pleasure of being in touch with him through the entire journey. From a zillion whatsapp messages to frequent and sometimes not to frequent updates to the website it was a journey for our team here as well.

My first ride with Aditya was in 2012 with a young club - Bisons Ride Hard. Aditya had just bought his Royal enfield then and he called it Baby Blue. While we were super apprehensive about a well known personality joining us for a ride, we were humbled by the fact that this man had qualms about his family or his achievements.

On this ride, he managed to blow some 7-8 fuses thanks to the incessant rains (it was August) and we had gone to Kaas Plateau. @samarth_636364 had given him the name - Lord Fusebox which stayed, and is now as popular as his surname in the biking circles. It is a name he is very very proud of!

That's me with Lord Fusebox and his bike (not mentioning the model) but the bike's given name - Sunbeam

And that is a handshake of friendship
