    Thanks Sunil G for the approval. Yes, V6200 helped us a lot in getting out of the crowded and confusing Margao city without asking for directions. Also the torch was handy enough to check the bike's rim condition etc at night. Indeed a cell phone for sports enthusiasts.

    Now when did this trip came up?

    Gray-haired riders don't get that way from pure luck.

    You dont stop riding because youre getting old, but you get old when you stop riding.

    Great way to bring in the New Year, Ketan

    I envy you -- where do you find the time?

    Anyways, keep it up, at least through you we unfortunate ones can get to visit those places as well

    Cheers
