Aditya, Would you be planning for an overnighter? If yes do keep me posted and we can plan one accordingly. Unfortunately 26th is on a Saturday else we could have had a good long weekend :(

Hey Adi, good to see the Ninja updates back .
Maybe not an overnighter but one of the breakfast trips on one of the weekends for me. Been a very long time since we have ridden together.

Am at less than 10% of the milage though :P

Hmmm; thinking aloud; ride to Kaziranga National Park? Ideally in March cause I believe they close the park down during Monsoons.

But then its a good 3000 Km away; we can plan to send the bikes by train to Calcutta and then ride on the way back.

Did this section as a part of a ride in Feb this year. Sent the bikes by train to Guwahati (from Bangalore) and then rode to Kaziranga. And onwards into Arunachal, till Dong. [Didn't see the point of a boring highway-GQ ride from Bangalore to Kolkata and then into Assam, plus would never get that much leave.] But if you are going up to Kaziranga, then starting from Kolkata makes sense to have some riding distance.

Kaziranga is beautiful! We spent a couple of days there. Road from Guwahati to Kazi is nice and scenic. And yes, you certainly want to avoid the monsoon time in that area, flooding is quite common. Feb was a good time in Assam. Arunachal was cold!

On the way back, we stopped at Dibrugarh and sent the bikes by train to Bangalore. Bikes were safe both ways by train. Though both were Bullets; since this thread is about the N250, I'd wonder if I'd personally feel comfortable parceling such a bike (expensive, attention-grabber, lots of plastic parts) and sending it by train.

We're riding to Nittur tomorrow. You can join in if interested.

Full riding gear (helmet, armored jacket, riding pants/knee guards, shoes/boots, gloves, etc.) is mandatory.

Great improvement from last time Adi. The lean is getting better.

Hey Aditya! The bond between man and machine seems strong in this one! I have been riding a 150cc bike for a long time( The classic pulsar 150- non dtsi) which is in pristine condition since i restored quite a number of parts. I just wonder if i should splurge on an sbk since i dont even have a car yet! The pictures are great and the last picture you posted on #475, the rider with the yellow helmet, i assume when you are leaning in on a curve, the leg-out will be inside but that rider seems to have his right leg jutting out too. Also, is he wearing his knee pad on his right leg? I can't see it :o.

My suggestion is to go ahead and indulge. Later on in life, responsibilities will mount up and this will just become a wish list.

The rider with the yellow lid is me.

What you see in the pic is not my right leg but one of the other riders who is crouching on the grass to take pics

And yes, i was wearing both my knee guards and had my outside leg (right leg) gripping the fuel tank for support while leaning in and partially hanging off.

Time to change my spectacles once again. First time the frame didn't fit, now the lenses don't seem to be doing their job .
