Hi riders
« on: February 06, 2019, 10:55:48 AM »
Hello everyone, I am from Patna, India. I got my ride in September 2018. What an amazing experience it has been so far. It plasters a smile on my face every time I start the engine. I mostly ride in a traffic choked city 3-4 times a week plus weekend rides with my buddies around the highways here.  I will be posting detailed ownership experience from time to time.
I frequent the website to gather information about the machine. Thank you for having me here!

Keep rocking!  :152:

If you are in india, make sure to be fully suited. Please wear a helmet with some lube.
welcome

Welcome. Glad you're enjoying this fantastic bike.
But I've watched videos of city riding in India. It's absolutely nuts. There seems to be no rhyme or reason.
Ride well  :821:

Trust me it's a pain to maneuver through traffic here. I am glad the z900 heat management is better than most bikes around here. I know KTMs that stall due to overheating and the riders have to wait for it to cool down. Hehehe

Thanks for the advise. I wear my helmet, gloves and jacket everytime I ride. I invested quite a bit on my riding gear. Planning to get the alpine stars bionic. I wear my boots occasionally. It's kind of difficult to carry extra pair of shoes when you are headed to work. What do you mean by lube?

Hey Zed so riding or driving in India is best defined as 'organized chaos'. We guys don't follow right of way or lanes or most other rules, something that I m not proud of. Honestly I love to follow them all but the drawback  is that the rest of the traffic will be more aggressive and squeeze you. In my opinion the best bet is to travel 5 to 10 km/hr faster than the moving traffic and you will do just fine.
