Back in 2017, while scrolling across my Facebook feed,
 I struck upon this. Intrigued and fascinated by the photos, I took a screenshot and divs ed deeper. I knew, I had to do this. It remained saved in my Google Keep waiting to be archived... someday.

Pulsar 200 NS Modifications


Checkout my Channel http://Youtube.com/OneLivingLife for details 


Ok, so I had a couple of mods in my mind before the Sikkim trip and numero Uno on my list was a pair of Fog lights. This one is pretty common and you would find it at almost any 2 Wheeler accessory store across the country. Here in Kolkata, I got it around 1100 from B.P. Roadies, at APC Road, Near Khanna Cinema, a few hundred meters away from Shyambazar 5 point crossing. I have mentioned the GPS location in description. You can also call the following number on screen to inquire about its availability. ( https://goo.gl/maps/oQxqD1iixYK2 ) The installation was done by a mechanic just in front of B.P. Roadies and these lights are pretty bright and do their job well.
The same pair of lights can be brought from Amazon and installed by your local mechanic. Link given in description below - http://amzn.to/2nVlhv7

Motorcycling across Sikkim | Day 8 | Lachen to Gangtok

PREVIOUS PART: Motorcycling across Sikkim | Day 7 - Part 2 | Gurudongmar to Lachen
The winding mule track seemed to be the only way to reach the last house of the village. A few children playing at the end of the path created some disturbance for the owners around. As they shooed the children away, I tried to lift my head which was still feeling heavy. Lucky to have the fever down last night, I was in no hurry to start for the day. The route had already been traversed 2 days ago. I was aware of the bad terrains and the best places to stop. A hot bowl of noodles and a cup of coffee were the only things that I needed now. My bones and muscles felt a lot weaker than when I came to Lachen. Obviously, it was the cold and fever that aided this weakness. However, it was a solo ride and I had to take every step cautiously. Riding solo, you have to give your best efforts to avoid any untoward incident. And, most often a solo ride coupled with an untoward incident on these lands brew a deadly cocktail.
A snap from the way...

Motorcycling across Sikkim | Day 7 - Part 2 | Gurudongmar to Lachen



260m away from Gurudongmar when my Motorcycle gave up
I could have left my motorcycle there and walked uphill for the remaining hundred meters but probably, it was an emotion attached to my machine that made me push it as long as possible. I thought it would be an easy task considering that I had no saddle bags laden. But, when the engine finds it so hard to breathe, how well can I?

Motorcycling across Sikkim | Day 7 - Part 1 | Lachen to Gurudongmar

 There ain't any single word to describe my feelings that day. A myriad of thoughts kept overwhelming me throughout the night. When you are on the verge of doing something you are too unsure of, the dark past recalls itself to stop you from stepping ahead. Flashbacks from the accident at Goa kept haunting me. Trembling amidst those dark moments, I could still feel the warm blood flowing down my face and hear my friend's painful cries. It had been almost 4 years since that happened, yet it felt so yesterday. I struggled to get some sleep in the biting cold.
