Jaggu, what are you saying? Your low end torque should be phenomenal or your clutch is finished within a few revs. And your brakes better be darn good. And you better be able to balance the bike on stand-still for a couple of seconds. And your tyres have to be MT. And your GC needs to be super, to avoid anything clanking out your pipes. And your suspension better be able to take the ravage. And the bike's got to be bloody light.

An RX 100 would probably do well, if modified like a naked dirt bike. I really dont think a Pulsar will last a few bumps. Sorry.

Anyway, digressing.

I have been to munnar on a bullet 500 through the Chinnar wild life sanctuary with my wife, one of the highlights of the trip was camping outside the Kolukmulai tea factory.

The route was through the tea estate upto the highest point where you could see top station on the other side.

Dude, we are traveling next week to AKC-EXAMM. We'll be bludgeoned to death by our respective families if we try anything this week-end.

Those are creepy crawlers from the Maxxis Family.

Mmm, i had attempted that on my rx100 some 14 years back. It was raining like hell and i could redline in all gears without moving an inch!!!. The bike was pretty stock with mrf button tyres on yezdi rim.

@Motocamp, this is a 2wd trail.

Hats-off to the people who are part this memorable off-roading of their life. The pictures says it all. That too risking oneself during the monsoon rains in the Munnar hills!!!

Kudos guys.. Great work
