@Ronaldo, you can also opt to fit Ladakh Carrier on your bike. To view the images, just write "Ladakh Carrier" in google and search for images.

Hi @Ronaldo,

You can use saddle bags on RE. For cramster, check http://www.cramster.in/categories/Crams ... 53171.aspx

These are available in adventure sports shops in and around Delhi too.

10. 5-6 tees


Bike Backup Kit: SOME POINTS:
1. Water Crossing: Water will be less in water crossing, before afternoon. So where ever if you find more water crossing, better ride at early morning. No worry, your bullet will cross any water, even though water over the engine.
2. Engine Breathing issue / engine carburetor: Its know issue, while going in some of the pass, because of less oxygen performance will go down. Some known solution 1. You can adjust the airflow in the Carburetor. Its simple, you can do it (or) 2. You can make more holes in Air filter.
3. Ur Breathing Issue: You can feel breathing issue in the pass, don’t worry about this. Your body will get adjust it soon for this. But general recommendation, you should not stay at any pass more than 20mins. Still if you find any bigger issue, you can reach any army camp (you can find it in all the passes) and they will provide you the first aid.
4. Shooting rock: Some of the mountain roads having this issue & its danger. Be aware of this and ride away from this mountain.
5. Clutch Plat Issue: Very often, Clutch plat will die in this region because of the road status, so better carry backup clutch plate (or) avoid using clutch very often.
6. Backup Petrol: Find the way to carry backup petrol for some road stretch (plan the distance). More you have petrol back-up, more you can ride at unexplored place.
7. Cold at Night: At Night Cold will be very high, Even though if you carry sleeping bag, it won’t work. Better stay at any paid tent or house or hotel.

Hi @jkaushal, @http://devilonwheels.com/india/member/jkaushal/, honestly Original RE accessories are tempting but yet costly. I have been using a Cramster jacket and RJays trousers for quite a good time. In fact except for Helmets (with RE sticker), I havent met anybody that I remember using RE accessories. Jackets you can get done at any leather shop the way you want with/without armors. Else go with Cramster/DSG/RJays which fits best and suites your pocket :P
For Boots, it depends what you want. I dont use Anklet-wala shoes, but they are for sure a good investment. Quechea and Weinbrenner are what I prefer. Gloves again Cramster.
But all said and done, RE should be a passionate buy :mrgreen:

Also, sorry for a Late Reply :?
