Default tata 207 DI

we got hold of Gurjan, who owns this PB registered 207 in Punjab during the Leg 1 of the GIR (great indian road trip)
he has been with us since.
the truck was a pickup version and we made the rear ourselves in mayapuri in delhi. in went a cabinet, spare parts, clothes, 70L cans for speed 97 for the fireblade, spare tyres, 300cans of red bull, cams, laptops, refreshments etc.
we are now in blore and the truck went thru a routine service today. i rode it from jaipur to del n back and it did quite refined with the windows up. its a non-turbo one and with the bigger rear part creating lot of resistance, it now maxes out at an indicated 105. its been returning 10-10.5kmpl regularly and the driver keeps following us and keep its between 90-95kmh
it has no power steering and the amount of play in the steering wheel did bother me a lot when i rode it to del n back but then i believe such things r part n parcel of a truck!
we have had no major issues with the machine and although it is bigger than the Mahindra pick-ups, it is still a lot drivable in city traffic. gear shifts are very decent for a machine like this and so are the brakes (tested from 90km/h when a call centre qualis came from nowhere when me and sunny entered delhi at 3am from Jaipur to pick up the fireblade)

we still have more than 10,000kms to go and hope she survives everything that comes her way!
