I have been using this bike since 2006 as I picked it second hand, and have travelled quiet a bit. The bike has done long rides and has been pushed to its limits. Having done all this, the performance has been consistent and hasn’t given up on me.
There was this emotional connect and confidence on this machine that led me to freeze on this bike for the epic trip.
But that decision turned out to be the biggest pain. The challenge was in sourcing the original spare parts and it was truly time consuming.
The bike was completely rebuilt from scratch. Modified 2002 Model RE Thunderbird (AVL Engine)
The bike was rebuilt by Mr. Joy of Joys Bullet Garage, the electrical and other work was done by Mr. Seby of SM Garage both based out of Thrissur, Kerala.
The modifications done on the bike are:
The spare parts I am carrying include:
Warrier's Trail is a crazy dream of a simple guy that was inspired by a desire to travel, meeting people, see places and live life full of uncertainty.
The dream is to travel 40 countries, in over 500 odd days in 5 regions (S.E.Asia, Australia, Middle East, Europe & Africa)
A journey of exploration!
