The Ghost Who Walks
Totally agree with u sir ji. I have done few rides here and there on the bullets i have owned, none like yours though. And seen guys doing serious stuff. My close neighbor hood mech also take guys to leh and all other such places. The problem starts arising when u do not know ur bike which is the case with new gen re riders most have bought bullet just to show off.on a very serious note:
I have seen guys doing 1000 + KM in a day on RE very frequently (I have done it thrice) and few people failed to complete few hundred KM (due to motorcycle failure). Is there any gap in understanding the product or RE needs different riding style.
We can safely give credit / blame luck, but actually need to find the reason.
P.S. few of my friends have completed SPITI trip in last summer on RE H, without any issue
But i personally feel that in place of improvement the service experience and parts quality have declined at re mainly its replacement parts are bad , i had faced timing gear failure twice within 200kms of changeing it first at 10k kms. And my friend who had std500 uce had its engine opened up at 9k kms and he doesn't ride above 85kmph.
I have owned and enjoyed every bit of it and loved it but i do not recommend it coz it means being more responsible which the current gen can not be (mostly).
I myself found inner peace in 2014 when i moved away from re in 2014. Never liked the uce only cgt and tb500 i like .
And i do wish from deep of my heart for improvement in re quality check and service.
