sanDRina is free from her cage!
Yay! sanDRina is finally free from her cage. She was locked down in this crate for 59 days and so happy her tires are rolling again. She arrived just as I had packed her away in Cape Town. Her front tire was deflated and windshield was removed to make her fit.

Hi, this is Jay and I'll be traveling with sanDRina, my trusty Suzuki DR650, around India for about 40 days. The journey starts this Tuesday, April 29, and I'm busy with preparations. sanDRina was only released from the port yesterday and I'm thrilled that she survived her 5-week sea voyage from Cape Town without any damage. I put her back together (just the windshield and the pannier frame support) and we went on a nice, long test ride this morning with the Madras Bulls Bullet Club. Everything checked out OK and she's quite the looker, drawing attention at every traffic light. I've been riding a 125-cc bike that I borrowed from my uncle as I waited for sanDRina to show up and so glad I can get back to riding a full-size bike. The test ride was useful to get used to sanDRina's size and power in Indian traffic. I've already been asked if she's a military bike and does she run on diesel? ;)

I'll be posting more on my trip preparations tomorrow.
