The hitch of a bike trip and lessons learned

I had planned a bike trip to Masinagudi. The plan was to start at 5:30 AM today. It didn’t work. Reason? A snapped clutch cable at 00:00 hours of 21st Oct 2006. Good that it snapped before I started the trip. It helped realize why bullet bikers insist on carrying spare clutch cables. Seasoned Bullet Electra 5ES bikers recommend carrying the spare items mentioned below
  1. Clutch Cable
  2. Throttle Cable
  3. Fuse
  4. Chain Connector
  5. Tyre Tubes
Stuff these items in the tool box or in your Cramster bike bags.

The bike trip got postponed by a day. I wish to hit no rough patches in the two day lonely trip…
