    Thanks. Yea studying and living in the same city does destroy quite a bit of freedom but i guess it's worth it for the very important reason: Homecooked Food!. Anyway you'll be free in less than a year to do all the trips you want to.

    @Shibadip
    Thanks a lot. I wish you all the best for your trip and hope that you have a great time on the trip and return home safe.

    Nice to read - I envy u - never made any trip during my Engg. days.. However now I try to.

    Recently I too had been on a similar route.. but from Mumbai. Mumbai - Kerala - Mumbai Express :P

    I echoed many feelings that you had, I have penned down my memories on my website - Kerala Bike Trip

    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.
    even i just ordered them about 2 weeks back, haven't yet received them.

    well i guess that since they are shipped from overseas, they could take some time to get delivered.
    Although please do let us know what its like to install them and how they feel in person

    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.
    OMG I forgot to write about handlebar .. duke has weakest handlebar ... i havent seen that much weak handlebars in my whole life even the hero cycle's handlebar can survive from 10kmph crash but duke's handle bar nope it cant . Well It's Cheap + Lowe Quality +Defected ... +Defected Battery ... Zol-Zal (Bakwaas)
