    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 [tag:2wrgwl9e]jkaushal[/tag:2wrgwl9e], [tag:2wrgwl9e]https://devilonwheels.com/india/member/jkaushal/[/tag:2wrgwl9e], 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 :?

    Hey Jk
    RE riding gear is good for nothing they are expensive and only give you feel good factor….not even good in protection also and yes expensive too……..I will suggest you to go ahead for pro biker gloves as they are all weather one and also quite cheap…..using it for long…..happy with its response…..Try Cramster and DSG jacket of rylon and mesh …they are best in price category….Breezer is the name

    Cramster also have good pair of boots….but I never found biking boots comfortable…..you can go for army boots instead….they have great response and Durability

    I’d doubt that any manufacturer has yet catered for the Himalayan. However, RE themselves have come up with nifty accessories for the Himalayan – why don’t you go for it?

    Yes but get waterproof covers for them. I got my waterproof riding boots for ₹7500. But normal shoes also work with waterproof covering
