Yes I agree with you Aditya and for sure will ensure this is more of a regular feature in our rides as well. You firmed up on any ride destination?

Should do at least a couple more before the BIG Ride.

But you will have to ride your RD thoughlol:
How I wish, I could do that. But realistically I can't see it happening. I don't want to transfer the bike to Bangalore (specially as I will loose the original registration).

Please keep me posted though.

Best Regards & Thanks

Ram

Ram

Don't worry on that part, I will handle it for you in case we get stopped by cops

Will be great riding alongside that bike.

It always a treat to see and hear RD's on the roads and specially on such long rides.

Have done a lot of riding with my RD buddies on my RX and we always have at least one bike developing some issue or the other. Glad to see all the bikes performed well and got you guys back safely home. Amazing pictures too and I have noticed that most RD's from Bangalore always look top notch.

I hope to have the guts to take my RD 200 on one such ride one day

Hi Sachin,

Thank you for the kind words. Suppose the popularity of the RD Club in Bangalore is one factor that's contributing to it. Technicians & availability of spares makes it a good haven for the bikes I suppose.

Frankly speaking, quality of RDs or restorations are steadily going down. But somehow they seem to be better than the rest of country.

Wow you have a RD 200? PLease put up some photos of your RD 200. Is that a Jap Model or you picked it from US?
