    @satya_3d
    Thank you
    I chose this route because it had a little mix of everything; there were the wide expressways and the narrow side roads, the long straights and the twisties, the places with hot weather and the chilly areas, the cities and the jungles, the beaches and the mountains. And i wanted to experience it all.

    @experimentalhead
    Wow thanks for those wishes. i genuinely hope they come true.
    Wish you the same

    @ridermax

    Leg guards and Rear Brake foot leavers are cheap and weak in quality . cant even survive from 20kmph crash i'm telling from my own experience with my orange beast its better to install Frame sliders ...

    You're absolutely right, but the thing is the frame sliders are so expensive. Im trying to atleast get the front and rear crash bobbins first. Will fit the frame sliders when I can afford it.

    Even my Rear brake lever and crash guard came off with a minor fall at 20kmph. and plus since they are made of aluminium they cant be welded back easily.
    Imagine what if i had fallen to my left, The gear lever would have come off and then one cannot even change gears to take the bike to SVC. I am thinking of buying a spare gear lever and brake lever for long trips..

    Even the Handle Bar bends easily, And the svc will ask to replace the handle bar. I know its difficult to repair any bend in handle bar but small bends should be rectified easily. Even i am looking for Frame Sliders now.

    Yea thanks for the link. They are actually really affordable though i'm not sure of how effective they'll be. I'm gonna order a pair of them anyway, something's better than nothing.
    If you could share your experience with them if u ever had a slide that'd be great. Not that i'm hoping you had an accident or anything.

    @drifter
    Thanks buddy.
