What???

You say trivandrum is crowded...

I go to college from perookada- pappanamcode... Through vazhuthacaud...

Passing through the kawdiar four lane, till vazhuthacud, short- cut through poojapura... to join thr highway at karamana... ( i dont go to vellayambalam- statue, east fort side often)

Am sure you know the places... You dont think i can keep 50 on these roads... Come on... Can do 70- 80 on these roads easily... and i used to... But... Not after my accident...

Then, am not talking about car... For a car, maintaining 30- 35 is hard... But not the case with bike...

Still dont thin its possible???...

lol..... Nice argument guys...

But the thing is, even though the city may be crowded as hell, depending on what you route you take and morei mportantly at what time you travel, you could travel faaar faster than most people.

I mean, on my route to college in Bangalore, I love riding. Wide open roads and even though there is traffic, it isnt jammed...... But this isnt the case with most of Bangalore...

Try to find a route which has the least traffic even if that route is longer then your ususal route. FE will go up. You really need to ride well to get a good FE. The same goes when you are riding fast.
