Naa, I never do full throttle for two obvious reasons.what was ur top speed in khardungla-i m just being curious-u must had full throttle of platina
One, bike wouldnt feel comfortable at full throttle. Briefly yes, but never constantly.
Secondly, if I use full throttle, in emergencies we need that extra power, from where I should get when I am in full throttle always. A lesson from my flying days.
Khardungla, as far as I remember, briefly I had to go to first gear because of the snow, slush on the road. While climbing down, it was already dark and I had all the road to myself so I really hurried fast. I did not bother to see my speedometer. May be I was doing around somewhere 40 to 50. But one thing I vividly remember, while coming down, my worse fear is, if my headlamp bulb fuses at that hour at that place. Luckily nothing like that happened.
Having said that, Rothang, coming down, the road was fantastic, I was really zipping fast, sure it was somewhere 50 to 60. Yes, the bike is highly maneuverable in tight bends too.
No issues with the bike on these sectors atleast. Just remember, dont strain the bike. Let the bike also enjoy the ride. Thats the biggest mantra.
