@raj.barcode- so sorry buddy , i was threstend by the others that i will not be allowed on the trip if i opened my mouth abt it.


anyway , i would like to thank jack33 and robinson for showing us around and giving us an awesome time.

robinson has such immense enthusiasm and energy for offroading, and he really kept us motivated and pepped up all the time.

It was a treat to watch jack33 drive his mm540 to the limit on wet tarmac on skinny ndms tyres.
Hi Sid, Thanks for the compliments. I guess we all were just superb to handle that terrain and the drive with minimum facilities in that extreme climate.

Lets prepare for the real monsoon OTR during July, as its going to the peak of rain, which am sure will be extreme in terms of the track.

Regards

You know what scenic beauty is? It is all those 4X4 standing next to each other. Brilliant.

Funny story to Viji's raincoat. He thought it was a tent, and then figured it was a raincoat, and then realized it was a PONCHO!

The best thing about this is you get to relive the moments...and thus the after effects of the OTR linger on for a couple of more days

Lovely pics and the terrain is Oh! So Yummy!

How steep were the gradients? Don't kick me for this, but would have loved to join you guys on my bike for this.

Dude, bring a fold-able stretcher as well along with the bike. And a sack for the bike - or whatever is left of it.

ROFL! Aye Aye Cap'n!

But seriously din't see any extremely deep slush patches or crazy inclines (or maybe the pics are not up yet!). But as long as the above two are not there or are there in moderation it should be climbable by bike I suppose. Not entirely sure though, maybe I am just overestimating me & my bike's capabilities!

Waiting for more pics if there are any.

It would be possible but will be a pain on a bike, as i said early terrain is super slippery and inclines are sometime crazy which is not captured in the pictures.
