    Did not want to make the page heavy by putting the whole log here. Will be updated further log here hence.

    Right now i am with my father who has come to visit me. Will stay in Kolkata for couple of more days for servicing the bike and some small shopping.

    From here the general plan is to Visit Sunderbans. Still not sure of how to get there and other details. Then head to Bhutan and then North-east and see how much i can ride.

    Since i am riding solo in unfamiliar areas to me, i might be needing some help on the way regarding info and logistics. So please help me out :)

    Its totally custom made. Got the boxes made by the guys who do boxes in galvanized sheets. put half cm cushion inside and black rexine leather outside to reduse the sound. Idea by my mech at bangalore. The cramsters fit inside them.
    Hehe dunno about ADV stickers but looking forward for the cold mountains :)

    Anup, I quit my job :)
    Me to hope so.

    Thanks Bharath. Will surely do so :)
