Ride to Kodaikanal, my first long ride

Long ride was a pending item in my list, I wanted to see how myself and my bike can perform in such rides and to see if we both are capable for my upcoming long list of tours, I chose Kodaikanal for this ride. Kodai was always in my interest, so planned for it and started on 23rd morning around 7:00 a.m.

I took NH 7 via Hosur, it took me more than an hour just to come out of Bengaluru's traffic, 7:00 a.m is when the traffic slowly starts congesting almost every part of the city, and it was even more when I reached Silk Board junction. Anyways, managed to come out of it. Had breakfast

Clicked 9000 Kilometers on my Thunderbird 500!

It's been 8 months and yesterday I gave my beloved bike Royal Enfield Thunderbird 500 to its final free servicing, out of my curiosity I asked the servicing center guys to show me how to change the engine oil, break pads, clutch cable and couple of other important routines that are done for a healthy bike life.
HSR Services in Bangalore are good enough (not great) when it comes to Enfield servicing and shows professionalism at job,
