Firstly glad to know you have completed the 1000kms and have a free reign on the bike.

Where is the location of this new Motul store please?

Thanks Abhinav.

Motul store - would you know Dr. Rajkumar Road? If yes, while going towards yeshwantpur - look for an ICICI Bank (not just ATM) on the right - Motul store is just 2 stores from it.

Mate,
Did you face a fuel leak after a full tank ?
I saw that after a full tank on my Duke some fuel leakage which also damaged my horn.
Cheers.

Sure. I have arranged a DIY hands-on session with Auto Service Banashankari on 21st April (Saturday). If you are interested you could enroll yourself and join the camp.

That's an amazing shot

BTW have you done any triple digit speeds on Duke, how does the Duke behave while revving it hard? (just wanted to know your thoughts)

That's a very nice helmet you've got.

Thats a nice click Shubankar. A couple of things if i may - place the balls of the feet on the footpegs and you'll get more feedback from the bike. Helps in hugging the tank with your knees a lot better too.

Dont worry about the lean angles and knee down's. That'll come with time Head to the TWO track school as soon as you can. It really opens your mind and helps unlearn a lot of things we do wrong while riding.

Thanks for both the compliments. and yes i did 138/139 (crouching) - this time it was stable. The last time we did - I could feel some instability add a moron jumping out on to the smooth highway and wanting to do a 130+ on foot - across. Skipped a few heartbeats then.

Yes sir. I was one of the three and I even waved at you. We saw you two going downhill where we were trying my non-existent photography skill.

Aditya - I look forward to more feedback like this. It was on the balls of my feet - i did a deliberate "run wide" to get a better lean but there was oncoming traffic - duds (can't call them dudes) with their girls without helmets coming down in neutral etc so had to brake or at least have my foot on the brake pedal.

Where is this TWO track school?

Oh hell!! Wish I had stopped! I infact rode up again since I saw three dukes by the time I got up all three of you were heading down again and Expected to see all of you somewhere but found none.. Stopped for food in one of the dhaba's and I see three of you speeding past!

Btw I did 136 crouching then gave up.! On the way up she was simply too good love the feedback and amazing flickability!
