    Reading tyre burst stories, makes me nervous. Good to hear you have changed all tyres.

    Lol...

    Anyway this brings me to a very difficult discussion are there any signs i can look for in the tyres that can tell me that its time to change them?
    I mean i'm currently running on new set of tyres (Maxxis) done about 500-700kms . But this tyre explosions are rather difficult to digest.
    Any means of catching flaws before something like this can happen?

    Tyre burst?? Thankfully you were able to negotiate safely. I had commented on the GT3 thread but I didn't know the tyre issue before I read this - go easy on the new GT3's for at least 500-600 kms. 17600 is a great price for a set of 4 new tyres.

    Yet another inspirational trip by one and only Ravi sir :) Truly amazing sir!

    I missed this thread else I would have met you Noida / Delhi.

    Now I will look out for the travelogue :)

    Oh, I didn't know that.

    Thanks, Ravi. My front right tyre that had burst had 3 - 4 mm deep tread before I had left Bangalore. I didn't know how it happened.

    I am totally clueless about this tyre burst especially when it was in good condition and I was cruising at 80 kmph speed only with frequent breaks.

    Thanks, nkapoor777. Even I feel so. A Bangalore brand-store dealer had quoted Rs 4750 each.

    Thanks, gonugupta. I came out of Noida at 9:30 am and I took more than 2 hours to reach NH 1. Let us definitely make it some other time.:)

    As usual your Linea undergone the unwanted incident. Oh I remember the suspension work at kolkota and the road roller incident while returning from Ledakh.
    But our wishes are always with you and your Linea so that it will protect your Linea and its occupants:D
    Best of luck for next phase of journey.
