2009 ooty rider mania!

No i will not be going for Rm but it sure has kept me busy these last few days tending customers bikes and last minute repairs.

In affect i was not even able to look at monster dog, let alone get some work done or ride.I was finally able to get the correct cable to download from my veypor, so i will now concentrate on gathering as much data form each run and using that information to better tune the bike.

The next thing is to look for a suitable place to test.The roads around here are too dangerous.the closest place to test is talegaon , but that was last year who knows what that road will be like now!

we are now thinking of testing on the beaches of the konkan, this would mean looking for a suitable hard packed,long,deserted beach.

Lets hope for the best.

You might need an air filter to keep the sand out. The sand also might trouble the chain and sprockets.
I am sure you will also keep in mind the rocks on the beach which are sometimes deceptively camouflaged under the sand! A recce before the run works best. Just concerned.:)

All the best. Looking forward for further updates on The Dog.
