Hi akshay,

I am not agree fully with your point on choice of bike read my recent posts, i have completed saddle sore successfully on my STD 350 and thats on 4 speed. Yes bike vibrates but it is ok no issue at all. I have managed 110 kph in this ride. Its not about which just bike its about endurance, planning and many more things.

Thanks,
Vishal

To add to that i met JOHN in Mahipalpur who is considered to be one of the best mechanic for RE in India and he told me that there's no issue doing a SS on a TBTS but with proper planning.

Me and few of my fellow bulleteers had gone there for a small workshop on biking basics and trust me this guy means business.
