It has been more than 10 years of riding Bullets for me, but somehow I have never been satisfied with the braking aspect.

The front hub needs some adjustment now. This is the only problem i have with my hub setup it's not self adjusting like the disks. Braking power isn't an issue yet.
Time to upgrade to disc brakes.

Isn't that the Akkulam bridge? Watch out for the cops lurking there!

Nice video . Is that Jay on the camera? You might also give the Chakka - Airport road a go in the afternoon. Practically no vehicles there and a nice straight road.

I don't speed there much, these days occasional high speed intercity rides keeps me happy

Yesterday did Triv to Ekm ride, first ride after i changed over to megaphone pipe (similar to a goldie but very very loud, i have to reduce the sound). Megaphone is doing it's thing and there's a definite improvement of speed & torque.

Intercity rides are the best
