    Default Mumbai - Chandigarh| One man - One Mean Machine - KTM RC8|

    Hi guys,


    The plan started forming after I talked to a lot of transportation companies to transport the bike from Mumbai to Chandigarh. Some out rightly rejected to transport
    it, while others were demanding 45k :O. That was just too much. So it looked a good deal to me when one company guy agreed to do it for 15k only and that too
    in a separate container. Too good a deal, don't you think? Smelling trouble, I talked to his manager and bingo, he said we transport a couple of these bikes in a
    year and I cannot do it for 15k. So all the guys out there who are trying to do this, please make sure that you don't fall into this kind of trap. After all,
    we love our babies and cannot see anything happen to them.


    So after trying everywhere, I finally decided that I will ride it from there. And I was so excited. This was just going to be a fast run as I had managed to get
    just one day off from work. The plan :
    Day 0 : Go to Mumbai
    Day 1 : Mumbai to Udaipur
    Day 2 : Udaipur to New Delhi
    Day 3 : New Delhi to Chandigarh


    Well it looks great when I write it like that, but it did not happen like that exactly.
    Uploading a couple of pictures (sorry but all the pictures are phone clicks. Could not take camera.), will upload some more after the thread gets approved.

    Ni ce man! I'm sure riding an SBK all the way there wasn't a walk in the park. Do let us know all the hardships you faced as well! Cheers!!
