Name of the place is Siddhagardh - its about 30 kms from Murbad with 13 to 14 kms of complete off road track. Though i have been there once, I can't find my way back there as we had one of the locals who was guiding us there.

update - Tyre hugger added.

With my last ride in the rain I realised that I desperately needed a tyre hugger on my bike. The muck that the bike throws on the rear monoshock and on the pillion is unbearable. Hence when Sri created the Tyre Hugger, I needed it.

Got the Tyre hugger on 18th July delivered along with few more for the fellow Versys owners in Mumbai.

First washed the bike thoroughly so ensure all the dirt is removed before installing the hugger. .

Post cleaning the bike, rains started but even that could not dampen my spirits and I continued installing the hugger as DIY.

Final outcome was really good. Thanks SRI

Though this tyre hugger will not stop the pillion from getting dirty, it will surely save my bike's rear suspension and that area from getting dirty. Now to go for a long ride tomorrow.

Looks good from the closeup shots. Both functional as well as aesthetically good up close.

Please take a full picture of the bike when you take it out for the ride tomorrow, if possible.

Looks beautiful Kailash

Sri is our savior by making such amazing and value for money products for Versys. We are all blessed to have a fellow V owner like him amongst us

I had bought a rear tyre hugger from an online store during the initial days for INR 2K and that was the fastest 2K that I spent on the bike..LOL!

I had stuck it on to the rear tyre and did not drill hole (my mistake) and stuck using the glue it came with. Went for a spin immediately afterwards and about 10kms from home, it fell and came under my own tyre and a vehicle behind me also went over it. It was smashed beyond recognition
