am in for this kadamuda OTR, as it is my 1st official offroad venture, sorry adventure... but honestly - driving a jeep at 80-90kmph at highways is equivalent to a offroad adventure, in my humble opinion, hehehe!!!

Not sure if anyone can try that on a continues stretch as the taller tyre the higher the risk in my opinion if not for any other reason. Though I have tried the speed at occasional times.

I could imagine a tyre bursting at speeds at above 60kms on a jeep can create real disaster.

Mad and Crazy is what I guess everyone around me in the RECCE 2 spot near Salem last week commented.

Now the question, have you ever or anyone seen a Suzuki Swift doing offroad ?


The OTR plans ahead in my next post, so stay tuned to this thread.
