SWEET!!!!!!!
Having done a lot of wet ghats riding myself, that road looks far too wet to be doing 90+ on the turns but i guess thats the beauty of the bike and credit to the confidence it inspires. I wouldnt cross 80 on my HH Karizma without splitting a few hairs!!!

On a lot of turns the rear was sliding a little but then I was easy on the throttle and it felt comfortable to do these speeds.

Cool. Have done business with them before and I received goods within 2-3 weeks. The only thing which stopped me by going to them this time was a few delayed orders lately reported by fellow riders. In case, yours is received by this end, I too will take the plunge :-)

Hi there.

Any luck sourcing the tyres?

Try these guys:

Pirelli Diablo Rosso 2 Tire Combo | Motosport

Tyres + Shipping + prepaid tax still works out reasonable.

Cheers.

In a recent chennai trip , I once rode the bike for 335 kms (and 65kms on FTRIP) between fuel stops. first 100 kms were done doing 110-120 kmph speeds. then around 150 kms at speeds of 130-140kmph . remaining kms done at speeds of 80-100 kmph. guess this is the max u can go between fuel bunks , as I filled in 17.04 L of fuel after this.

You cut it pretty close or just that I am not too aware of the fuel pumps in that area.
Amazing speed you carried throughout. I don't do those numbers even in the car

Last 15 kms i was not sure where it will stop. the fuel bunks in this area are sparse , it was a bit risky to be honest.
