    CrossWinds vs Tai-Chi

    After the initial town traffic, and reaching smooth highway stretches.. it was time to battle it out with strong crosswinds. The first wave that took me by surprise simply put me in a different lane and I felt from front come up slightly.. I was doing ~120kmph then.


    Tried to be a little wise and low down the speeds to just under 90kmph… and as you can see in this pic, fictionally using Tai-Chi (which I know no crap about) to chi-control the winds.

    Huaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa…

    Highway Run

    Once cross-winds went down, it was time to twist down for more gas and revv past a lot, lot and a lot of vehicles on the super straight highways.
    This is why tourers love the seemingly un-ending straight highways, it lets you max out your bike
    I pretty much held steady at 139-143 range for quite some time.
    Bike was perfectly planted and no unusual vibrations or loss of control... and still 500rpm of max unused.

    My Tail Bag thinks it can ride the bike


    One very common trouble I had with the tailbag was sliding forward into my seat. Almost every bump later, I’d have to push it back with my rear Looked weird on the highway.
    It could have been a bit better, but thanks to my OCD, I used additional nylon ropes when those bungees would have been enough. That created a imbalance in tensile strength and it kept sliding forward.

    However, while returning back I used only the bungees and it was a bit better.

    Y U No follow rules
    I thought Hyderabad was notorious for doing this, but as I took off again on my journey and making my way through Vijayawada to get onto the highway again… damn watch that driving and jumping red. So common. :/
    Jumping red. When will we learn to NOT do that!
