We have nearly met - we've been in November and December 2014. I have found your chasingsouth blog while researching for a bike rental for India and it was a great helping hand . We have covered roughly the same route as you did but the other way around: took the bike by train from New Delhi to Trivandrum and than traveled all the way back to New Delhi. We've had some really crazy 45 days but all in all I'll do it again in a hear-beat . So, I'm glad I managed to surprise you - it's well deserved since I've picked up quite some good tips from your blog . I'm waiting to read about the north part, which is also in the planning for us as well .
