Me(MAK) and wife(Poli): Royal Enfield Thunderbird 350
Vishal and Mady: Bajaj Avenger 220
Pruthvi: Bajaj Platina 100
Extreme hot temperature for the last few days made me tired just going to work. I had one month left to go to Leh on an ambitious ride. I needed to test my gear and all theories that my team put forward.
Sunday the 20th was a hectic day at work. We were supposed to leave at 0330 Hrs Monday morning to beat the summer heat primarily.
Sharing a collage:
I called my folks who would join me and we met up in CCD on Saturday the 19th. We decided Pruthvi would ride in the center and maintain an average speed of 70Km/h in the highway during daylight. Everything else needed for the big ride next month was spoken about weeks back. Our folks knew what they needed to do.
Plan was to pack my Thunderbird the same way I would pack while riding next month. I had a difficult time initially balancing the Cramster saddle bag. Most importantly was carrying fuel as I decided to do away with additional carriers. I am 100Kilos myself. I am carrying a pillion (wife). Both our luggage and gear. 10Litres of additional fuel on my bull that is already tank full. WOW Mission Impossible - Leh Protocol.
Hoping Moderators will approve this short ride log.
