shivanasamudra is going to be really, really crowded on weekends. Any other place which is deserted, has good roads and can be completed in a day?

I was there last Saturday. It was not so crowded. Ofcourse, there were people, but you get enough view and time to enjoy it

Go ahead guys.

+1 to that - I'm game!
The coming weekend sounds good to me - I'm only wary of waking up early in the morning (read 6 and earlier). Else, I'm fine to join in this weekend.

My brand new Tjet has just completed 240 km. I am in 2 minds whether to join or not. Running-in period is at its peak, but so is my weekend boredom

Running-In period Gurus, please advise whether a 240 km highway trip is permissible when the odometer is at 240km

IF it is not, I will bring my Pulsar 220 along, if bikes are permitted for BHP meets

Only engines are mandatory. Number of wheels no bar for TBHP meets

BTW, I've never heard of run-in periods for Jets.

Although not a guru, its no harm in this. Just make sure you keep your RPM below safe level. (2.5K -3k)

I took my car to Chennai when it was less than 100KM. Only caution is, don't sit on the pedal. Keep sufficient buffer for overtaking. Rest is assured.

keep a smooth/constant acceleration and avoid spikes in RPMs and you should be fine

imagine i had to ride my CBZ under 55kmph in the run in period for my bike and i rode from Thrissur to Bangalore (474km; just two days after i bought it). thinking of it still hurts my backside

Guys I am in for Friday night/Saturday.
If it's not too long a drive and I have company on 2 wheels, then I plan to ride a little red thingie that just entered our parking

Juley, my dear friends . Seems like this time I've not missed any drives during my absence. Would love to join for a drive (probably a longish one) if there is anything planned for next (not this weekend) weekend.
And sorry for delay on posting the trip pics. Was totally out of the grid for last week as there is no Tata indicom coverage in Ladakh. Will soon post the pics.
