New colors for our Bullet and small road-trip at the cave temples of Kaiwara

After having customized the colors of our Chetak quite fast, it was planned that our dear Royal Enfield was next on our list. But you don’t dare to touch to a Royal Enfield look as you do with a 5000 rps scooter. There’s a certain style to respect. We wanted to stay loyal to our colours, blue and orange but we were hesitating. Wouldn’t we disfigure it and be looked as clowns?
We finally launched the process with our favorite mechanic in Indiranagar, Saleem. As usual, it’s better to be patient when you try to get this kind of work done. But as we were not lacking of susbtitute vehicles, we let the craftmen of the unmissable Shivajinagar take care of our Bullet parts. “Tinkering”, pistol painting, parts drying in the street, sticker stencil for the logo, everything was done properly with one craftman for each task. The result beats our expectations and we’re now really proud of our unique Bullet!
To celebrate those new colours, we took the direction of Kaiwara, 60 kms away from Bangalore in the North for a little sunday road-trip. Pic nic with friends, pictorial small roads sometimes covered by drying cereals, travel in time through small villages and cave-temples visits (with a limited interest) were enough to fill us with joy.
This week-end, we’re going to try to go a bit further to discover a surprising Tibetan settlement in Bylakuppe just before Coorg. We just hope this time Mysore road will be nicer with us than the previous time…
