It's been so long since this thread has been updated. There was nothing much going on with the bike and also was held up with some personal works.
Anyways, we welcomed this beast into the gang.
What a machine it is to ride. The inline 4, with an SC project slip on, OH MY GOD
In order to celebrate the arrival of the newcomer, we planned a ride to Dhanushkodi, Tiruchendur and Kanniyakumari. We had to cut short our 3 day trip due to personal reasons and missed going to Dhanushkodi, which I know I will regret for a long long time.
Day 1 - Coimbatore - Tiruchendur - Kanniyakumari
We started the trip around 6 AM from Coimbatore, filled our tanks at Shanti Social Service petrol bunk and stopped near Palladam for morning Tea. Rode via Dharapuram, Sembatty and stopped at Vadipatti for our breakfast. We proceeded via Madurai airport road towards Tuticorin highway and took a diversion for Tiruchendur. Reached Tiruchendur around 2.30 PM and got a room to refresh. Went to the beach around 4 PM, came back, refreshed and went to the Murugan temple. After visiting the temple, we decided to proceed towards Kanniyakumari as it was just 90 kms away. Started around 6PM and reached around 8.30 PM. Got a room for the Night.
Day 2 - Kanniyakumari - Coimbatore
Went to our usual secluded Sunrise spot, but to our disappointment, it was cloudy. We went to a fishing harbour nearby, spent some time and then proceeded towards coimbatore. 400 kms of pure 4 lane highway and 100 kms of two lane later, we reached home exhausted, drained due to severe humidity at around 8.30 pm. I slept like a log for the next 12-13 hours.
