    The winding road tempts me to find places where I could take my Duke... simply awe inspiring .. How did the Duke fare during this ride, especially the rear tire ?
    Thanks sivigshankar...
    Even I was a little apprehensive initially...on riding in the rain...but during a recent track session with duke, my confidence in the bike increased many folds...believe me...have faith on your bike....it was planted all the time, & the route really gave me the chance to take her upto the limits & I realized that the duke has got much more capabilities than I do...you just have to be in the correct gear...the rear tyre did not loose traction even on those wet surfaces...except for some delibrate attempts...:P
    Thanks again...glad u liked it..
    -Arpit is the name by the way, not ankit :P...
