Test run no 2

I promised pictures so i will let them do the talking this time!

The bike performed well, apart from a severely flat battery towards the end of the run, which forced us to limp home with the bike miss firing.

The other rider in the black grey jacket and silver helmet is my ace rider Rahul, blessed with a professional riders build and years of riding experience he gets monster dog to perform(even in the break in period) like nobody else.

The short guy Ram, a nepali is my most trusted mechanic and very resourceful in a tight spot.
