You'll get good quality food as well there at Jubilee pump.

If you are refuelling inside cities like Varanasi and Kanpur, you might use credit cards, else it's safe to pay in cash.

Probably, you'll take the 84km long Allahabad bypass where there is no Petrol Pump. So refuel in advance there. After crossing the bypass, you'll find pumps and also a Reliance Plaza for refreshments(basic facilities are available).

Sengupta da, thank you very much for such a detailed guideline for fuel pumps. And thanks to Sudipto da & black panther as well.

I think, it will be wise to carry enough cash in 3-4 seperate sections (some hidden... and go for the credit card where the facility is available.

I will be staying for night at Kanpur and Varanasi (Have a plan to perform puja at Kasi Vishwanath Mandir). So fueling can easyly be done in the city.

And guys, I hope after Varanasi, Bagchi is going to be with me - so half of my worries are his ....

Hi friends,

Do anyone of you have a RD350 owner's hand book? Can I have a copy please? I downloaded one from the web, but there are a lot of pages missing.

Please drop me a line if you know any link for downloading the complete Owner's Hand Book.

I would also like to request RD350 owners to shed some light on Spark Plug issue. Which will be the best one to use for long drive? Please do drop some technical suggestions regarding long drives ON RD350

Regards

Guys, just uploaded a very detailed road map of India. The map is big enough and how will be of your help. I scanned it part by part from Eicher and then joined them. The file is 35 MB in size and can be downloaded by clicking the below link

I agree. Don't even think of using your CC at most of these pumps. Fine to use it at Mathura, they are a company-owned outfit.

I'd suggest you push till Allahabad the first day (about 590 km - 10-11 hours max), go into the city and stay overnight, as well as fuel up. The next day will be a comfortable drive down to Benaras (135 km), and you can have the whole day there - apart from the puja, you can go around the city as well as Sarnath (again, here, I'd suggest you park your bike and take a rickshaw or auto - traffic's pure mayhem in Benaras), spend the night, and leave for CCU the next morning.

Riding 590km in the first place is OK but there is a very big attraction waiting for on the way. The thing is 2 Dec is full moon, and I have heard that on a full moon night, Taj looks totally different. Just waiting for a cofirmation from ASI. And moreover, on the last week of Nov, I will be there in Delhi - so will meet and freeze the hault points.

Stopping at Agra the first night is a good idea, esp. on a full moon night! Second night at Allahabad is then more easily doable.

Will look forward to meeting you at Delhi.

Yes sir. I will be riding alone. Most probably, a friend of mine will also drive with me till Agra(just to see the Taj at Night...) and will return to Delhi next day. So, from Agra it will be all alone.

But definately, my fellow bhpians are there all along the route....

Yes we are there my friend.

In fact the Agra - Kanpur & Lucknow route is awesome and can be done easily on a bike.

I do not know further BUT I am sure it's quit OK.

Just avoid Night driving See you soon !

PM me in case you need arrangements in Allahabad and varanasi, I don't mind doing this for a fellow BHPian.

And when you come to Allahabad, we should certainly meet, if you wish you can visit a few place like Sangam and other parts in Allahabad with me.

Hi,
I'm sure you have got the owners manual by now. When in Cal, you can photocopy my service manual. Missing the electrical section though.

Re: sparkplugs (or any engine related technical matter) go by your tuner/ restorers advice.
