karnataka: Three Bengaluru bikers ride along Karnataka border | Bengaluru News – Times of India


BENGALURU: Three motorcyclists from Bengaluru are on a road trip all along the border of Karnataka state, covering over 3,000km in three days, to mark Rajyotsava. Pegged as the first-of-its-kind ride, they plan to end their journey outside Vidhana Soudha on Monday evening.
HR professional Harshith BK, 30, from Kalyan Nagar has been a passionate rider with numerous road trips to his credit. He’s been yearning to do such a ride for many years to cover all corners of his home state and create the shape of the Karnataka map on his riding tracker. “I wanted to do it for Kannada Rajyotsava last year but Covid put the brakes on my plans. This year, there was no holding back,” Harshith added.
Founder of Bikerstroop Bengaluru, a group of city-based bikers involved in road trips, Harshith inspired fellow Bengalurean and biker buddies Suraj Vasudeva, 24, and Surendra Karnataka, 42. They set out from Attibele early Saturday morning — Harshith on an Apache RR 310, Suraj on a KTM Duke 390 and Surendra on a KTM Duke Adventure 250. “We rode into Kanakapura Road and crossed Bandipur to reach Madikeri. We halted for a bit in Mangaluru and have reached Karwar,” Tavarekere-resident Suraj told TOI.
Covering over 500km in a day, the trio is not taking many breaks and following a route along places on the state border. “It took me two months to chart places along the border and we’re following it,” said Harshith during a brief pitstop at Trasi beach near Kundapura.
The bikers will travel through parts of Belagavi, Vijayapura, Bidar, Ballari, Chikkaballapura and enter Kolar to reach Bengaluru on Monday evening.
