    Stuff is packed and I am in the loo for a last feel of civilization and my precious bathroom. Dunno when I'll get these luxuries again.

    Took some time balancing and mounting everything. I am above limit since I have one extra bag, my backpack.

    Tested the bike for a short distance, it's really going to be a test keeping it balanced.

    Slow and steady she has to go.

    Alright, most of you would have gotten the updates on twitter.

    Here are some pics from day 1. Not much to click during the brief halts, so in description

    The testing of the luggage -

    Completely changed the dynamics of the bike. Had a few scary moments today on the highway when I pushed the bike ( leaned ) beyond safe limits, though it came back, thankfully. After 300 clicks, I have gotten the hang of it in a straight line, however the twisties that await us on Monday would be a different story altogether.

    The man and his machine.

    thumbs up all!!

    End of the day. Top right is the total kms done. Bottom is the time taken.

    Just had a great meal, and am now online! having choco chip ice cream!

    Thanks to Vaneja for the hospitality!

    Loads of pics to follow!!!

    The bike fared pretty well ... you should let KTM know that

    Would make a nice promotion for them..
