Thanks for the appreciation and wishes, incarnation.
Wishing you and your Bluebird many many miles of smiles!
Thank you, Gaurav Chopra, for the wishes.
J.Ravi sir which bike you pick Mojo or Himalaya
Out of the two, I like Mojo because of its power, torque, Pirelli tubeless tyres and gadgets. :)

For the first time, I have prepared two sets of detailed plans/itineraries - one each for Thunderbird 500 and XUV 500 - for my next mega ride/drive. Whoever wins the race, it will only win by a nose!

After deciding to retire the OE stock rear-view mirrors [RVM] as the LHS has become dull and faded, I selected the new Avenger Cruise chrome RVM as they look sturdier, more stylish and better quality compared to the OE stock ones.

Since my son was also not satisfied with his Classic 500's OE stock ones, I bought a set and fitted on his Classic 500. He is satisfied with the new Avenger Cruise RVM after using for a coupla days. So, today, I bought another set and fixed them on my B Bird. Each set costs ₹ 678. I am yet to test the new RVM on the city roads and highways.

I have the same mirrors and they are really a suitable upgrade to the stock ones.

Ravi sir, I saw a few Thunderbirds yesterday at the service center. There were 2 bikes that came with instrument cluster problem. The buttons were not working upto the mark. Is this a common problem in all TB ? The service guys said it happens in rains sometimes is this true ?

Sir try the mirrors of Enticer they are stable than avengers mirrors as they have short length and wide view. As you have purchased it already try it in future when the need arises. They are also anti glare.​

My bird's original OE instrument cluster was replaced at 5,722 km due to cracked glass under warranty. Apart from that, I have not faced any other problem. Of course, the inaccurate readings are shown in the replaced one too.
