    The First Successful Saddlesore on a Pulsar135LS(135cc) and Suzuki GS150R(150cc) in India





    NOTE: Before anyone starts even thinking that doing a saddlesore in India these days is EASY....its NOT! yes ofcourse on higher end cc bikes it might be...but on lower end cc bikes its definitely not ! With perfect planning and a lot of good luck its very much doable...so all those who might think of setting out for one...please do the required planning for coming back successful,alive and safe !

    One more advice from Mr. Old Fox Sir -
    endurance rides do stretch the safety aspect rather thin. And I do wish all those who attempt them do not compromise on riding safe in any way. Your life is a lot more valuable than a certified endurance run. When you attempt such a run, do not chase the clock. Just ride to the best of your abilities and let the timing come by itself. IBR is not bigger than your life.

    Credits and apologies:

    Tanmay is the only person to have thought of this and also making me do this.Yes brother we passed this test successfully. Thanks for the lovely friendship,company and support

    First and foremost thank you Ashish and his brother Nikhil for all the help right from accommodation, food etc. to the help with the bike stuff,gears, everything. It was just wonderful to have all that elder brotherly and friendly support.

    Thank you Ketan,Nitin and Tushar with all the help for the ride,route,information. It would have been tougher without your help.

    Thank you Rustom,Mayur,Sachin,George Uncle and all xbhpians who helped us.

    The Summarization of the entire ride:

    We crossed borders of Maharashtra reached Karnataka nearing the turn-about point well within 11hours.

    my turn-about point receipt


    tanmay's turn-about point receipt


    We reached back Lonavala at around 11pm on 18feb completing more than 1609kms,that is,1000miles and ended(rather had to end) our ride there.

    my end-point receipt

    A very good and safe biker not only because he can pop up either of the wheels,scrape his knees on a corner or go fast and make it look stylish but because he very well knows his limits and capabilities and has the patience to learn about others and ride safe ! :)

      Congrats on completion of saddle sore NIN

      Seriously i am thinking that if one has to attempt such saddle sores bike is not a constraint. Even 135 cc can do it

      Usually people had a feeling that to attempt such things we need a bike with minimum of 150cc +.

      Waiting for the log NIN.

        Congratulations guys to have done it on Pulsar & GS. Yes, yours should be the first motorcycles to have listed in SS attempt. Good. I guess then yours (135) must be the lowest CC in this country to have completed this mammoth task.

                          thank you for the approval !

                          thank you for the wishes and completing the saddlesore may be less difficult these days but definitely not a 'cakewalk' sir...especially on lower end cc bikes....yeah you can use that word efficiently for a machine above 200cc

                          yes will definitely get more details and proof especially with pictures of fuel receipts
