  7. Hi,

    I am up for another solo-ride at night ( Goa-BGL );
    Do you remember if the petrol pumps are open at nights? Also can you suggest a good guy to do some Fork-adjustments, on my bull in Bangalore please..

    I am basically from TN. I actually took it to Teknic guys on Sarjapur road but they couldnt fix it properly
