Nav, those bikes are built for terrains like that and are ridden by people who know to fix most stuff. Apna LP to LP hain :P last I heard about his bike was he totalled it by forgetting to put oil in the bike ;)

@Rahulbeta: I post these pictures because offroading for me means this. If I have to go on dry grounds...any decent 150cc bike is enough. Of course my level of offroading would be much lower than what Navpaaji has done i.e.Raid de Himalaya. Or best would be get a used ZMA- strip all the premium quality plastics- stiffen up the suspensions and u are ready to go anywhere without worry. I doubt if the total cost will cross 75k

Here and also Ignore SATYEN's posts, God knows from where he gets information, That was not my ZMA, That was Spandan Singh, aka Bandhav from Delhi, Whose HUNK Seized.
And I am sure, this Arse is the Man, behind spreading Rumors.
All Bikes I kept have been an excellent condition.

But nevertheless you got yourself a true world class bike (but for all the wrong reasons)
See I am not Buying KTM to only do a Rally,I am saying I may want to do it with KTM,  Main Purpose is City Riding, and that too Riding it Fast, Jumping divider's, Stunting, :-p , I was really not happy with the CBR, as far as it is built, Had a great discussion after a ride with OLD FOX, if someone may know, He had it absolutely the same views, I dont want to Phodu-fy the CBR, It sure was a let down for me.

Yes, why not?
For rally you need a bike with good suspenion, should not be too soft nor too stiff. R15, just change the handlebar, change the tyres, remove the plastics and you are good to go.


Then I guess those proper offroaders (KTM's, Husky's, etc) will be out of your shopping list. As they won't be easy to fix nor can be fixed any where.

@LP: Based on what my friend felt while using his KTM over bad road, just keep an eye on the rear suspension. You might want to stiffen it a bit, if set to too soft from showroom.

Bajaj CT 100 should do as well after similar prep, no? You may not even need the handlebar change!
No Speaks About Rallying More yaar, :-p
When No One has done it, Anything can be done, Are you ready to do it? Then lets Talk.

I see some good knowledge from NAV and Arn, Pulsurge, It's good to know people like you here. :)
I may be going for the SJOBA in a few weeks.

Practice has started will post some pics in a while, Can someone help me how to post images.

IMPULSE is a good option.

@Satyen: Someone knowing how to fix a bike(not a requirement to own or ride proper off-roaders) is different than "easier to fix".

@Deepak: Why you think most of the Indian bike's in Raid are souped up ZMA's? :)

@LP: If you plan to jump speed breakers and all, I'm not sure how good KTM or CBR would be but two bikes that I have ridden and are best suited for such riding are Impulse and Bullet(just hoping mentioning this name won't start another mini discussion). ;-)
Good luck for Sjoba, I was so tempted to take part this year but neither am I ready (the broken toe nail hasn't fully grown and it still pains when put pressure & haven't spend any time in doing any practise) nor is the bike(ZMA) fully ready for another hard riding off the road. :(

:P ,I am kidding, but by that I meant in the Delhi's bad traffic, we are riding on the footpath or pavement for 5-6kms in a day in a travel of 15kms :P

Why dont you get your pedicures done by a specialist ;)

And @LP.. If you wanna be jumping Road Dividers, and Stuff, i suggest you go for a Trail Bike.. and just make the seat adjustable.. :D
