    We realized that we would be needing navigation as we can't always count on the sign boards to be there! That was sorted as I had Sygic (MapMyIndia) on my android smart phone.
    But Android+smart phone+GPS = horrible battery life.
    Also, we weren't very sure how long our digicam batteries would last taking into account long riding hours and lots worth clicking !

    So, after discussing with Amogh, we found out a solution! I ended up ordering:

    150 Watt DC/AC Inverter

    It is an APC 150W Inverter. It converts our motorcycle battery's 12V to 230V AC, so we could charge anything ranging from a mobile to a laptop on the go!

    The size allowed me to fit the inverter under the seat of my bike, although it was a very tight squeeze. No structural mods though.
    I will post some pictures of this later.


    More on this later.
    Stay tuned

    Bro need info about these inverter cost and is there need to change wiring is it easy to fix

    Always back your bike into the curb and sit where you can see it.

    The inverted, I had it ordered from shopclues. Here is the link

    http://www.shopclues.com/apc-150-watts-dc-to-ac-power-inverter-with-airline-adapter.html
    .

    All you have to do to fit an inverter is install a cigarette lighter receptacle onto your bike battery via a fuse, just in case anything should go wrong. Like this one here
    Google Image Result for http://www.powerwerx.com/_images/products/atcsocketbare_xlrg.jpg

    In case for you space is not a constraint, I'd suggest you go in for this one, or any other one. Just search shopclues for car inverter:

    Ducasso In Car Inverter

    Because, for the APC model, you need to do some minor modifications. But APC products are highly reliable.
    The inverter was under my seat for the whole ladakh trip and with the amount of jerks it might have sustained and that is still working is just commendable.

    In case you are interested in the APC only, then you can contact me again. I will help you out with the mod. It's quite simple actually.

    THE DELHI STAY:

    First, some pics from the previous night when we arrived at Delhi.

    After our midnight arrival, we woke up soon enough and the plan was to drop off our bikes at the respective service centers in Noida for a pre-ride inspection cum service.

    But as it happened, it was a Tuesday that day (4th June) and it was a weekly off for all Noida service centers. So, against the initial plan of a one day halt at Delhi, we stayed here for two days.

    The first day then, in the afternoon we headed towards karol bagh with purchasing a can of Motul 300v for me and a CEAT Vertigo on our minds.
    Amogh was satisfied with his current tire setup (MRFs). Also got the PUC done from here.

    After having highly recommended the 300V to Amogh, he too decided to buy a can from there instead of the 5100ss.

    I also purchased riding goggles from Chopra Automobiles for night riding as i was using a tinted visor for my LS2 and carrying a transparent one was out of question. Not that it was available either.

    A few other things caught my eyes too

    The next day, we got the bikes serviced, oil changed and for me tire changed as planned and tired after dinner, we head directly to bed with a plan to pack our bags in the morning and leave for Jammu.

    The two days we off at Delhi helped us get refreshed and energized for what was yet to come. It was a well deserved rest too!
