As we find ourselves on the backroads riding every twist and turn i could plan, the roads are becoming worse. Some of the roads could well be dual sport territory. The Suzuki is hard going for dad. Especially with his bad back, knees and inability to stand when required. Match that with the characteristic seasonal heat in the region and we quickly agree we need to get to better roads. This means a change in plans and once again i find using the AGM phone with offline google maps an advantage. As the day progresses, we find ourselves inching towards Panchgani. The first day has been hard on dad and we look forward to dinner and a good rest.
