WHAT’S IN STORE IN THE
LAND OF THE KINGS

Are you the one with a penchant to stray off the beaten track and into sand dunes? If wide stretches of desert moving into the horizon ignite your passion for adventure, Tour of Rajasthan is your calling.

PREPARING YOUR RIDE

Get your machine ready to take on the sand dunes of Rajasthan.

Preparing your Ride
  • Get your motorcycle serviced well in advance and do not wait for the last minute. At ground level the most important thing are the tyres and the wheels. Ensure that you have adequate tread on them. We recommend you start the ride with a brand new set of tubes; you are less likely to face punctures.
  • Get the rims trued, an out of shape rim will affect handling.
  • Inspect and make sure that your motorcycle has genuine RE parts, especially hubs, spokes, rims and other engine components. We cannot provide support for modified items and in such case you are requested to carry your own spares. We can make arrangements to carry them in the service truck.
  • Check the rear swing-arm bush for play and replace if needed.
  • Check the condition of front fork oil seals and replace if needed.
  • Check your chain and rear sprocket for wear. If you find that there are less than four notch adjustments or broken teeth, replace your chain and both your sprockets.
  • Your motorcycle’s clutch is really crucial for this trip, so make sure that your clutch is in good order and adjusted properly. When you open your clutch cover, also check the primary chain and the adjuster. Do not use any kind of additional insert under the chain adjuster. If the adjuster has reached its limit, replace the primary chain.
  • Check the battery and the earthing connections. If you have any history of electrical trouble, be sure that the problem is completely solved.
  • Check for play in the steering column and replace the ball race bearing if necessary.
  • Check all the rubber components like carburettor manifold, fuel lines, air filter manifold etc. for cracks and tears and replace if in doubt.
  • Check all cables and if found bent or frayed, replace immediately.
  • Finally tighten all the nuts and bolts and if it is found to slip or the threads are damaged, replace the relevant parts.
gearing up
Gear up the right way for this memorable ride of your life in the ‘Land of Kings’. A combination of protective gear and preparedness will make sure that terrain and weather don’t get in the way of this ride. Read on to know more on how to gear up for the Tour of Rajasthan 2017.
  • HELMETS: Choose a good quality full face helmet, which protects you from impact and shelters your head from the elements. A lightweight well-fitting helmet, which provides proper ventilation is vital for the success of this ride.

  • NECK PROTECTION: In cold riding conditions, it is important to keep your neck warm and covered. Various types of scarves and neck warmers can help you do this. We recommend using multi-utility headgear which can be used as a scarf or a balaclava. The headgear is also effective in keeping the dust and cold out, and also wicks sweat away from your neck.

  • RIDING JACKETS: When selecting the right jacket for TOR-2017, look for one that offers good protection from impact and abrasion. Also, some jackets come with built-in detachable thermal layers, while others have only the protective outer shell and give you the liberty of using your own winter wear. Whichever choice you go with, make sure you have armour in shoulders, elbows and back for protection from impact; an abrasion resistant outer shell to protect you in case of a slide; and enough warm layers to keep you cozy in the cold.

  • GLOVES: Well-fitting, full length, gloves are a must for this ride. They will protect and provide better grip, give you more control of the motorcycle and keep your hands fatigue-free. Impact protection for your knuckles and finger joints, abrasion resistant padded material for your palms, and a closure system for a secure fit work best together to keep your hands protected.

  • RIDING PANTS: Select purpose-built protective pants, which can withstand the rigour of a long ride and still remain comfortable enough to be worn for multiple days. Look for a pair with protection in knees, a tough outer shell; and depending on your preference, go for one with built-in layers or combine your own winter gear with an armoured outer shell. Go for a size that should fit you well with all the layers inside. A fastening system at the bottom helps to keep the cold out.

  • BOOTS: Purpose-built protective boots are a must for long rides. Toe, heel, ankle and shin protectors work with a soft foot-bed and flexing zones to offer you optimum protection from rock and road. Attention to sizing is a must, because what you need a slightly roomy fit that can accommodate up to 2 layers of socks without making the boots too tight.

  • LUGGAGE SOLUTIONS: To be at ease on long rides, pick a purpose-built luggage solution which has space to store all your essentials and is water-repellent. Saddlebags, tank bags and tail/duffle bags are the most common and best suited for this purpose. The bag should have easy access to all pockets for efficient organisation of your things. Also, make sure that the bag has tight buckles and closure systems, so that your gear remains secure.

GEARING UP

Your safety and comfort on this ride depends on getting the right gear.

RULES AND REGULATIONS

Rules of the road.

Rules and Regulations

We try to keep rules and regulations to the minimum unless when necessary for the harmony and safety of the individual or group. However we expect the few that we have, to be followed very strictly, failing which we may exclude that particular participant from the rest of the trip.

Rules
  • Intoxication:

    We do not allow any form of intoxication when on the motorcycle.

  • Conduct:

    Participants are expected to conduct themselves in a manner that preserves their dignity and others' around them, including other participants, support staff and locals of the region.

  • Environmental responsibility:

    We must try and ensure that we maintain the sanctity of the region we are passing through.

  • Medical advice:

    If you are under medical treatment, we expect you to follow the medical advice very strictly.

Luggage
  • A vehicle is arranged to carry your luggage, and it will be carried at the owner’s risk. Each rider is allowed to place one bag with maximum permissible limit of 15 Kgs. Each rider must ensure that their luggage is loaded and unloaded every day.

    Satellite luggage (to be carried on the motorcycle at all times)

    The support vehicle is the last vehicle to start and last vehicle to reach, hence there might be a delay in participants being able to access their luggage after reaching a destination. Also, it can be tiresome to wait for the service vehicle for something as basic as a tube. Hence your satellite luggage carried on the motorcycle should consist of:

    1. Change of clothes
    2. One pair of footwear
    3. Set of tubes
    4. Spark plug
    5. Throttle & clutch cables
    6. OEM toolkit

Service
  • Service back-up – we will have a mechanic travelling along with some basic spares. If needed, parts may be replaced and the rider will be charged for the same. We will do our best to help with the motorcycle but in these hard conditions, each rider is responsible for bringing their motorcycle home. Therefore, motorcycle preparation is very crucial and the scrutiny will be thorough. We will guide you in both.
