I came here that doesn't mean i won't be morphing them.. :D ps reached in 5 and half hours.. Thanks for all your valuable info people.. :)
Doc you tip of going 15 kmph lesser in every corner helped a lot.. :) i forgot that a couple of times but luckily nothing happened..
the plan of sticking to 90 went in air and as a side effect gave me a lot of worries.. Had filled her up for 600 bucks and it got over 65kms from my target i.e. at nippani.. i.e. red light started flashing.. and there wasn't a petrol pump for next 20kms.. I rode on slowly hoping to get one but couldn't get one till hattargi i.e. 20kms ahead.. filled her up for 100 bucks again and just as i entered city again started flashing red.. that means i got a great 35kmpl... :(
all in all enjoyed the trip.. 351 kms exact.. without wishing to hit my top but did my personal best of 120kmph unknowingly..

Packing the bike, haggling with coolies, completing the formalities, supervising the loading on the train, releasing the bike at the end = total 4 hrs at the very least (could be a couple of hrs more) spread out over 2 instalments, + 30% chance of cosmetic damage.

Riding down = maximum 4 hrs

Your call.

You forgot the proving that there is no fuel despite there not being fuel and then buy fuel in black during unloading bits!



Congrats on the maiden solo trip!

The first bit is easy - just detach the fuel pipe, and leave the cock in the reserve position, preferably as soon as you get the fuel out of the tank. Then you can give the person asking you the "how stupid are you?" look, while politely enquiring if he is blind.

The second bit...if you arrive at Nizamuddin stn, for instance, the nearest pump is about a km away... you figure! Best soln is to have a friend come over to help you and bum some fuel off him. But you'll have to do the same when he comes with his bike in the train, like you.....

Ride Down man... That is the Way of the Rider.. Trains are for Those people who are afraid to Ride.. And what are 6 Hrs, in terms of a ride. just do it... tell you what, if you have exams, record the lessons onto your phone / i.pod thru voice recording. and play it back while riding the bike. the only thing is, that i have found studies to be sleep inducing. so your call.

There is another way, put the bike in a cargo van (available in Duronto), Rs 2000 flat fee, you need to be at the station just an hr in advanced and in less than an hrs time you are out of station too.
I took my ZMA few months back to Delhi, with zero packing and the bike came out without any scratch. Will I try it again, No. :)

I must be really afraid to ride that I have always shipped the bike to and back from Delhi for all my past 5 Ladakh rides. :)

No offense Dude. I was just trying to Pump up a Newbies Adrenalin.. And Ladakh Trips are a different League altogether. They take Months of planning and Family Jewels of Titanium. That is Something i Admire (the Courage, and not the Jewels).. Also time and physical strength is of utmost importance in that matter. A 6Hr journey is peanuts as compared to a ladakh Ride.
