Beside this also got BCM Touring stickers made for my motorcycle, not to forget I had a puncture today. This is FKRâ€™s first puncture, hope they will be able to hold up during the trip to Ladakh.
Beside this only a few more things need to be purchased for the trip and bike is almost ready for the ride. But still a lot of homework needs to be done regarding the route.
Phewâ€¦ only four days to go for the ride, hope every thing will be ready by then.ï¿½ ï¿½
