Absolutely top notch ride. Its been quite a while since I joined a Sunday morning group ride and this was a memorable way to get back. Our group consisted of three D390s, one R15, one showroom condition TB500 and a Continental GT. After we stopped for breakfast, we headed to the dam which involved minor off roading that took us up to the water front.

Definitely a Sunday morning well spent. Looking forward to the next one.

Oh and the D390s absolutely blew me away with their performance. At one point, they accelerated so quickly that I mistakenly thought that they had pulled off the road cause I lost sight of them in a matter of a few seconds while navigating through the lone diversion we encountered.

Absolutely gutted that I couldn't join you people on this one (was out of town), in spite of man_of_steel's personal invitation. Looks like I missed something priceless!
Will be attending the next short ride even if there's Armageddon on earth.

man_of_steel, did you make any exterior changes to the ride? Looks a tad different than I last saw it.

Cool pics man! I wonder who is to be blamed for that sudden disappearance of the 390's!

BTW. I and added_flavor spent a good time cruising at 80kmph before the sudden disappearance! My mileage indicator showed an all time high of 34kmpl@4th gear while added_flavour's showed 39kmpl@6th gear! Never seen such figures on the 390's console!

Someone should be thanked for getting that mileage on the 390s & the bucks saved. And that the guy got the phenomenal mileage without even riding the KTMs ;-)

I just tanked up yesterday and found that I got 28.7 kmpl from the ride. Waitaminute, so you guys got an indicated 34+ kmpl and have 14 bhp more than my bike? Grrrrrrrrr

That expression and gesture when you were bored of riding like a bulleteer... Priceless!

Hahaha! True that. I learnt a lot of self control that day.

Let me get some rides under my belt before laziness and live UFC pay per views put an end to it and return me to my regular ways.
