A biking couple, South India, 33 cities, 5133.9 kms & 12 days …

Today lies in your hands…

Waiting to give in to your demands

Ask for the world and no less…

Befitting the talents you possess!

 

A poem penned by Prakruthi N. Banwasi Chalks what Yogita Madhu and he believe.

 They carved the first ever South India Trail across 33 major cities covering 5133.9 kms in 12 days on a Fiero.  H. T. Sangliana, The Commissioner of Police, flagged off this event on March 6, 2002.

 Yogita essayed the role of a navigator to perfection, including placing complete trust in the riding capabilities of Prakruthi. Again the Fiero’s unbeatable combination of ‘Power & Mileage’ made it possible.

 The bikers gave 33 press conferences (organized by the TVS team) to pass a vital message about Road Safety.

 GIVE THIS A THOUGHT… The bikers asserted everywhere :

It is possible to ride/drive fast and yet be safe, be it 90/100 or even 110 kms/hr. Yet we can still   ride rash at lower speeds of 20/30 km/hr.

Traffic violations lead to accidents, grievous injuries and fatalities.

The educated public cause most of these traffic violations.

 

Yogita recalled, “It was heady to run the west coast for a few days and then touch the southern tip (Kanniyakumari) and then blaze to Vizag on the east coast. We connected Vizag to Goa in two days, returning to the centre of South India… Bangalore… home…. and the centre of the world for us!”

 As Prakruthi sums it up, “The Karnataka Trail’ (3181.2 kms in 4.5 days) had set the pace for this adventure. We are glad that TVS believed in our abilities, the management and the Racing Team worked out all the details with us. We owe Murthy and Praneeth of Zen Motors our every success for nourishing the drive in us and other biking enthusiasts. Training for years under Santosh of Figurine Fitness ensured that I was physically and mentally prepared for this grueling ride.”
