  • 12/07/19--23:45: Volvo B9R
  • Hi everyone, i had an opportunity to travel in a Volvo B9R (Multi Axle) from Chennai to Trivandrum last week and i bet this was easily the best of all buses.

    While travelling, in noticed that no other bus dared to challenge this monster machine.

    I could see all the other vehicles except some faster cars stepped aside to leave way for this bus.

    Coming to interior, it was great. The ride was so smooth even when the driver hit 120 in speedo, the seat and leg space were so comfortable...

I have changed headlights with Projector lights and also added neon tube lights for parking & indicator (two in one ). Will share the pics soon. I ahve also added front & rear bumper guard. Roof rack also.

    Hi All

    Disclaimer : I'm bad at drafting a TL, so I will try to keep it short & sweet and limited to where it needs an explanation. I'm a dormant member of this platform but observe you guys from 'sidelines' and enjoy all the posts. Thank you for everything!

    I am planning to visit Manali from Chandigarh by car, will leave on 21st December. Please suggest if the road condition is fine via Bilaspur-Sundarnagar-Mandi route or should I take Una route? I don't have much off-road hill roads experience by car, have been there multiple times by bike so the route should be easier to drive :)
    Also, another concern is if there will be snow on roads while approaching Manali?

    2019 was not a good year as far as travel was concerned, first I was busy with my work, second the climate was not good, this part of country had received record rainfall creating a lot of problems, so once the monsoon got over I decided to take a much-needed break as I got 5 days off in Diwali but a day before the Diwali holidays I was down as I had leg strained and could not walk for three-four days. Finally, I got a holiday but my wife was busy with her work and assignments and son in his...

    I never thought that I would end up writing this. I have been religiously waiting for my Classic 350 for ages.Dreaming about it day and night. Seven months to be precise, and the suddenly my dad goes to visit the Dealer and give them a piece of mind. For those who think that my dad returned with the Classic 350, you wouldn’t be more wrong. He turns up with A THUNDERBIRD 350 FLICKER. :shock: To tell the truth I am no fan of the TBTS, apart from it being more comfortable than the Classic...

    There are 4 toy train services from Shimla to Kalka .

    I am planning to go to Himachal Pradesh in the second half of March and will return in last week of March. My question is if I catch the train that starts at 2:15 PM ( Simla Kalka Pass) and its scheduled arrival time at Kalka is 8:10 PM , shall I face any trouble to catch Kalka Mail at 11: 55 PM , or it is better to buy tickets in Himalaya Queen which starts at 10:40AM and reaches Kalka at 4 :10 PM.

    I want to avoid Himalaya queen...

    How is the train service from Simla to Kalka
