In my loosely knit rider group the oldest is 70 and we rode to Goa a couple of months backs from Chennai. My father still complains to my wife as to why does she let me ride at this age. Fortunately she lets me ride, though I never asked her why lets me go on long trips regularly. . The longest she has ridden pillion with me is from Chennai to Pondy and back.
Would love to read about more of your rides over the coming months.

Thank you Sir for your inspiring words. I really wish that I can continue to ride into my sixties as some of your team members do. Wow Sir, Chennai to Goa is some ride. Do hope to continue my riding and will post details of the same here. Thank you once again.

Do read up on bike maintenance and upkeep, especially the chain lubing and cleaning and precautions in case of long parking or break downs to keep you prepared. The bike is very reliable and low maintenance. Getting a pair of Auxillary LED lamps and Hazard flashers is also recommended.

Ride Safe!!

Thanks Maverick for your kind words. Am hoping that the vibrations will reduce as I pile on the Kilometres on the odometer. Will definitely take up your advice and read up on Bike Maintenance and chain lubing. Have already procured and fixed Auxillary LED lights. Need your advice and recommendations regarding Hazard flashers. Thanks once again.

You can try the Hazard flashers available on Amazon, Autofy is a good brand. Look for a plug and play variant. Mine was one that required modifications to the wiring.

Dear Mr. Ganapathy,

Really happy and proud to see this travelogue. Your articulation of the feelings going in your head was awesome. You are one of those people who have reinstated the fact that dreams can be realized at any age. Wish you many more safe kms on your Dominar

Wow. I could completely relate with your ruminations. Being a couple of years younger than you, I too am in the same boat. Reactions from family is the same. I am considering between the Dominar 400UG, Jawa Perak and the Jawa 42. The process is now delayed due to the current situation around us. Best wishes and ride safe.
