@IJS -it was the 1200GS BOXER TWIN and F850GS parallel twin for test riding.The 310GS is a no show here in Punjab.Yet to see a single one on the road.

Tera Chorinja has a new addition-25mm thick risers machined from 30mm diameter aluminium in my factory and fitted with 25mm longer grade 8.8 TVS make bolts.This has been done to make arms more parallel to the legs while sitting opening up the upper rider triangle. Fittment was done at the dealership.It seems at OE fittment is done with Loctite applied to the threads-while opening the bolts ,the thread of the aluminium bracket sheared right off much to the amazement of both the mechanics and myself.Without as much as batting an eyelid,the whole handle clamp was replaced -total charge for fittment was Rs640 with all risers,bolts and washers being provided by me.

To try out the new risers Tera Chorinja was on the road to its favourite haunt-Sarai Bharatgarh.And man was it full of bikes and bikers today.And everyone was in a goofy mode today-haven’t laughed so much as I did today in a while.Lovely time spent with riders from Chandigarh,Hoshiarpur and Mukerian

Everything going fit and fine with the Tera Chorinja.
Made a quick overnight trip of around 600kms to see the snow bound Parashar lake on the Holi day.
I was joined in this trip by fellow a BCMT member on his Triumph Tiger.
We started at 6am in the morning and after a leisurely ride in the twisty’s of the Ludhiana-Hoshiarpur-Bhota-Ner Chowk-Mandi-Parashar route with multiple stops were at the Parashar snow head at 3pm-walking 1km in the snow got us to the lake,spent around 2hours there and then rode back and stayed overnight at Mandi and back in Ludhiana at 11.45am the next day .The bike performance was flawless throughout the trip

The picture where the bike can be seen totally supported by ice-without the sidestand-you can see from where i had left it and how the ice has the side stand imprint but the snow is hard enough to bear the 235kg motorcycle.

The bike was on a super fast Sunday morning ride yesterday -Ludhiana-Rajpura and back .
Had to brake hard for a traffic snarl on the way back-and the front ABS worked hard to save by bacon-the front MRF was screeching for mercy and grip-and on inspection after coming home ,looks like there is some casualty-how severe-will be confirmed by my tyre wallah
