Oye Navpreet, congratulations on the 500 man. How was the ride from Del? Roads better or still moon surface?. You are gonna have a blast taking it to Mussoorie .

Love the color too.

Thanks man!!


Roads were okish.had to keep her under 50-60 so took me 8 hours to complete the journey.also had to take breaks after every 45 minutes of journey.so had a real pain in the backside when i came back.

I came by the road which goes along the canal straight to roorkee.the advantage is less traffic and zero heavy traffic.Have completely burnt my arms coz i was being a hero and wore half sleeve t shirt.

The back is still hurting.

Yep just waiting for the rains to stop so that i can take her to mussoorie for a breakfast.hehe.

Wow Congrats Navpreet, its raining LB500 these days

I believe they are no more on sale & that makes this an even better buy, frankly speaking this is the only RE worth its moolah IMHO.

Keep us posted on the ownership experience.

Congrats navpreet . Finally you got your hands on a LB 500, Man i loved this color, the only reason i did not go for this color was because i had to wait for two months to get my hands on her. She looks brilliant..Do tell us her name.

Happy riding !!

Congratulations Navpreet. Wouldn't it be better for you to run mineral rather than synthetic till the engine settles down. Or are you using motul mineral?

Cheers,
Jay

Thanks Hillram,Titus,Jay,Prince,Vert1go.

I'm going to buy mineral oil of motul.3000 4T.No synthetic oil till 5000 kms atleast.

By the way this bike is really weird.You just don't want to come back home.you just want the road to be endless cruising at 40kph (dug dug dug) thats all you wanna do for the rest of your life.Now i know what kind of a trip these bulltt owners get with this bike.

I'm loving it.
