    It's like the marriage syndrome, right. First you are so zeal into getting married, then once you're married or you're engaged, all of a sudden, you start getting all these gremlines you go, should I get married now? Is it the right time? Am I screwed for life? Well, your plot is something similar Jokes apart, if you paid a significant amount for booking, I'd suggest you go for it.

    Coming to performance, first off, remember this isn't a superbike to talk about performance figures that matter so much at an atomic level. At a basic level, you can compare this to a Pulsar 220 that does everything but with a longer suspension and relaxed seating position. You can find numerous, nice reviews in YouTube that show in depth performance and capabilities this bike has to offer. This is basically a crude off roader from RE. For what it's worth, it does the job well.

    They still need a week to complete the formalities but I had requested to be called once the bike arrives so got a call.

    Happy that it's HA on the Vin so jan'17 , the bike was still dusty but I saw a small scratch on the tank was informed they would remove it while polishing (not sure). Let's see how this goes, mostly would get it by end of next week.
    Do post some detailed photos and your first ride experience. Though the Himalyan has been out there for a while now, it's reliability and longevity has always been a hit or miss, especially the older ones. Keep posting your first impressions, photos, reviews, anything you can so that it helps prospective buyers.

    Once upon a time, a guy asked a girl 'Will you marry me?'
    The girl said, 'NO!'


    And the guy lived happily ever after and rode motorcycles and watched sport on a big screen TV, went fishing and surfing, and played golf a lot, and drank beer and scotch and had tons of money in the bank and left the toilet seat up and farted whenever he wanted.


    THE END

    Get done with your first service and then go as far away as you want! Just be gentle with the throttle!

    I have already booked a Himalayan Granite. Should I wait for the fuel injected + ABS variant or purchase the current model as RE launched its euro 4 complaint Himalayan + ABS in the UK.

    It depends if you are willing to wait for it to be launched in India and willing to wait till they resolve the initial niggles.

    I've been working around the Crab settings and the air-fuel mixture screw. Does anybody know the stock carb settings?
    Has anybody tried a different crab settings ?
    All answers will be appreciated.
    Thanks in advance
    Regarding the carb settings, please refer with this thread.

    Safe riding!
