You seem to be very well prepared for the trip, don't forget to carry a spare spark plug.

Congrats Milind on your purchase, just want to know what all works you intend to plan on this bike apart from color change.

Any mods on the engine, if yes what kinds.
What specs is the bike running on currently.
And if you share how much did/will it cost you to get the bike in shape as per what you wanted .

I have no clue about tank bags and their impact on tank paint/polish because I have never used them. I have never travelled long distance on my bike. My friend Mitch who travels long distance on Bullets does not use one either. All his stuff is carried in iron frames attached to the back. They were custom made.
I think you should travel as light as possible and carry only the bare bone essentials.

Here is the latest bunch of images I got from Sumeet. I am sharing the same with you and expect your valuable suggestions .

Please note that I have told to do the following rectifications
  1. Remove rear shock absorber's head cap
  2. Chrome the coil of rear shock absorbers
  3. Put an original back carrier
  4. Engine guard
  5. Chrome the tail light assembly.
Hope all work will be completed in the next 10-12 days and then the trial period will start ....

Sudiptoda, I got your point. I am droping the idea of putting a tank bag - rather will go for the rear carrier. Thanks dada.

Hi guys,

Just wanted to share two websites I stumble upon while surfing the net. I found them very interesting. Don't know if anybody already mentioned them or not. However, just have a look.

This link doesn't seem to work - shows a 403 Forbidden notification.

The videos on the other one are informative, esp. the last one.

Your bike looks adsolutely stunning, complete stock except for the front disk, RD 350 had one of the biggest drum breaks I have seen in the front wheel, and used to really like the look of that big huge drum.

Thanks for your compliments. I too like the drum break look, but considering the safety issue and my proposed long ride - I go for the apache disk break. Hope this only modification from the stock one is permissible

Your bike is looking absolutely gorgeous. . What tyres are you using? Keep a basic tyre repairing kit for the ride, it should have things like patches, a good footpump and crow bars to pull out the tube etc. Pushing a loaded bike on the highway for even 5/10 km is not a matter of joke. You could also keep a couple of spare tubes.

I really don't have any idea which tyres Sumeet have fitted in my bike. What do you recommend, which brand will be the best? And what type - like tubeless or with tube? Is repairing kit available in India.

Waiting for your reply - Sudipto da.
