The road till Nalagarh was thick with traffic and progress was slow.
The climb up to Ramshehar from Nalagarh was a narrow potholed,landslide affected road with a few stretches of slush to test one’s riding skills.We reached the fort at 5.40pm and were informed that the entry per person is rs200 if one wants to see the fort -and the closing time is 6pm.
So we decided to keep the fort explorations for the next time.
The fort is a heritage property owned by a Chandigarh based family with staying options in the Heritage rooms in the fort premises and executimve rooms as per generic modern style at the lower level.The elephant in the room is —No ROOM SERVICE POLICY-so for everything you have to go to the restaurant- which is a serious climb down from the fort for Heritage room guests and a long walk for the executive room guests-not a happy situation for me as a guest- but from the booking it seems people are game for this policy.Most of the fort rooms were occupied by the honeymoon crowd while the families we’re basically at the lower level executive rooms.
The gardens were neat and well kept.With fading light and an overcast skies ,we moved out at 6.15pm for our way back.
We split in different directions on our way back from Nalagarh with my buddy riding to Zirakpur and myself proceeding on to the Nalagarh-Ropar road back to Ludhiana.Both us reaching home safe n sound by 8.45pm -a total of 334kms of riding.
In all, a day well spent.

As the bike was really dirty,went to HD dealership for a wash for the bike-there was told that my time bound service is due-so got it done.Total bill-rs7450-with engine oil,brake oil change,brake pad scrub straightening,brake pins cleaning and greasing,all systems ECU check,dielectric grease on all exposed electrical connections-total time taken 3hours.
The dealer offered a price of Rs5 lakh if i took up on an offer for a Softail series bike or on MY 2017 1200 Sportsters which i politely declined not wanting another loan on my books.

The big bird was flying on the road again today morning-on the invite of the local HOG chapter.
Fine cloudy morning it was today-temperatures in the mid twenties-I was on the road at 6.30am dot for rendezvous with accompanying bikes about 25kms from home at the junction of national and state highway-Doraha
From there,it was a fast clip to Sarai Bharatgarh.The group today was lead by a young group leader cruising at a 130kmph with me forming the tail

Tera Chorija on the road again today-115kms to Dasuya for coffee and back. Here the BMW guys are giving test rides of the 1200GS(21lakhs)and F850GS(14lakhs) so test rode both-gargantuan machines-respect to the riders who take them off road roaming.
Seriously high CG of both the bikes.Not my kind of machines.

Great pics, these BMW guys are going every where but still finding hard to sell the 310s due to high cost and the handling charges taken by the dealership, there have been multiple cases where the bookings are cancelled due to this.
