    @ KPR - Yea to me the roof rails were functional . The total roof load of both the bags were approximately 20-25 kg. My roof survived.

    It so nice. I will be continuing with all the details so that the next person donot have any problem in Bhutan

    It's one of the plus points of Avvy. If I am not wrong even the active trim gets the functional roof rail. @Subhendusc can confirm.

    That's nice. I'm not seeing any base plate above car roof metal on which the bags can be placed. Hope there's a base for the carrier.

    A very basic query about luggage carrier on the car roof (I had dropped it after raising among various groups, without getting proper info) -
    Are personal vehicles allowed to carry luggage on roof-top within city-limits by RTO rules? I have an impression that these are not. This has to do with safety on the road. I have seen carriers only on Kali-Peeli in Mumbai and Peeli in Kolkata and maybe in Delhi (I mean taxis), but years ago. What is the scene now? Anyone knows?

    @Ravi_M , really speaking goods on the roof tops can be carried by Goods Carrier only.
    But then there are carriers available. and people use them generally when going out.

    @KPR I tried to look for a base plate in Kolkata , but there is no such in Kolkata for Avvy

    Thanks for the route update, Subhendusc. Last year, I took Kharagpur>Bankura>Chittaranjan>Deoghar>Bhagalpur>Purnea>Siliguri route to reach Gangtok/Guwahati/Tawang. Do you think Burdwan>SH7>Moregram route is better than the Deoghar>Bhagalpur>Purnea route or the other alternatives? Did you return by the same route or some other route?

    @J Ravi , the SH7 route is shorter than your purnea route by approx 100.0 km.
    In My very recent trip to Chittaranjan and Dumka I had found that the road conditions of around these two places are not very good.

    There is another route , ie NH34 from Kolkata itself. But conditions between Ranaghat and Berhampure is not good .
    Hence after all these considerations I took SH7 - NH34 route.

    I am just waiting for the fate of this forum before continuing with my travelogue.

    Thanks, @Subhendusc. On 29 April 2012, I drove via SH 7 [Moregram-Burdwan], when returning from Thimphu to Puri. I may take this route again during my next drive/ride to NE. :)
