No suggestion for next meet destination ?


This was my first Team BHP meet, and it's great to meet fellow bikers and car nuts aka motorheads (hey, who asked about the right slang for car crazy folks ). Given the number of members from punyanagari, was expecting a bigger turnout though.


I was a little overwhelmed at the attention the 675 got, even being in a sombre black paint. I think I need a stealth bike .

Sudeep and Aniruddh seemed eager to show off their audio systems, but they two have nothing on me - a 3 cylinder "head" unit and a single stainless steel subwoofer-cum-speaker, but it makes sweet music !

BTW, I don't believe you were even close to ripping that 90hp 1.4 CRDI , it was //M and I who were doing a leisurely 60-70 pace - and now I'm out of my allowed smiley allowance!

Looking forward to a bigger bang, pun intended , next meet !

Yes man! you stole our thunder completely! But your Head Unit is a little low on Bass! Shaky low frequencies you know!

Yep, not even close but trailing 2 bikes on a winding section is a task in itself. Ask my Apollo Aceleres, they had some workout that day.

Those 3 Cylinders sound sweet! No ICE can replace it

Big bikes, but ridden very sedately. Maybe time to complement a 1.2 litre Polo with a 1.2 litre crotch rocket

My astonishment may be more understandable put in context - few years ago, I was riding and met with a buddy in a Skoda Laura vRS, on the same route. We met, then he started and I followed , but the gap slowly kept growing. I was riding as hard as I could muster, and so was he, but the Skoda was pulling away.

Granted though, it was a 1400kg, 150hp Laura vRS possessing both better power and handling vs a smaller capacity hatch, but it was a lesson on what a good dynamically sorted car can do in the twisties.

It was great meeting you all. Me and 599gto have a few pics of the Lavasa drive/ride, will upload it by tonight. My Enfield wasn't in its pink of its health and some mechanical issue with the bike forced us to return back from Lavasa without taking a spin around the lake and promenade. Sincere apologies guys, but we will do another ride to Lavasa some other weekend for sure.
How's the bike now?Did you get the snag rectified?

Yes Sir. I got it serviced on Friday from Royal Motors in Yerawada using Doc's reference. The C5 is doing great post the servicing. The silencer "packing" wore out, resulting in white smoke but everything is sorted out now. I got the packing rings replaced and rode the bike for quite some distance on friday and saturday to check if there is any more white smoke. Thankfully, there was none.

Rode to Lavasa yesterday, thoroughly enjoyed riding in the ghats.

Glad to note.But how can a failed silencer packing cause smoke to come out,pardon me If I am wrong.Did you check the oil level when you saw the smoke?

Yes the oil levels were on the lower side as well. My bike had been lying unused for over 2 months so the first thing I did when I saw white smoke coming out, I got the oil topped up. And it significantly reduced the white smoke.

Later the mechanic told since the packing rings/oil rings on the piston have worn out, the oil is getting burnt faster resulting in white smoke. So the rings were replaced and oil was changed. No problems now !
