My granddaughter will be studying at the Free University in Berlin for the next year to complete her German language major.  Her dad accompanied her to Berlin and will be returning home on Monday. So they are both walking around Berlin to check the place out before he leaves and she starts school.  He just sent me this photo of a Royal Enfield 350 Bullet that he saw parked in the street.

I've ridden route 1 several times and the views are beautiful.

My biggest complaint with riding that road is the traffic and the speed they drive coupled with the fact that the road is one lane each way and most of it is a "no passing" zone.

A almost endless stream of motor-homes, campers and white knuckled drivers who came from the plains states and never saw a drop off at the side of the road of over 2 inches makes going real slow.  Like probably about 30 mph.  :(

On one of my rides on that highway, the road crews were doing something (I never found out what it was) so they had all of the North bound traffic stopped.

People walking around looking over the edge at the ocean.  Kids running and screaming at the top of their lungs.  Dogs barking.  You get the picture.  :o

Anyway, since everyone was stopped and had been for a long time I decided to slowly ride my Beemer forward.  After about a mile of slow riding, I found myself at the head of the pack.
I hadn't waited over 30 seconds before the man with the flag waved it at me and waved his other hand North so I slowly rode past him.

I had over a 5 mile ride without anyone ahead of me and with no oncoming traffic.  :D

I didn't ride real hard because I kept thinking there must be some sort of wash out or rock slide around the next blind bend but in those places where I could see the road was clear for 1/2 mile or so I did a bit of peg dragging.  ;D

Looking thru several books that show WW II military motorcycles seems to show that some of them did have a pillion seat but most only had a rack or nothing at all behind the riders seat.

A lot of the pictures show two riders on the motorcycles but it's impossible to tell if the pillion rider was sitting on a seat or on the rack (ouch).

I rather doubt if the Indian ECU is compatible with a O2 sensor but I'll admit I don't know for sure.

IMO, the O2 sensor is used in the export models to meet the various worldwide countries air pollution requirements.  The ECU's use of it does not add to the performance or fuel economy of the motorcycle.

I other words, even if it would work with your motorcycles ECU, it wouldn't be worth the cost of adding it.

I see no reason to remove the O2 sensor on my RE but if you read many of the posts on this forum you will see that many people here in the US add over-riding computers, like Bert is talking about and remove their O2 sensor.

IMO, if having one had any benefit beyond lowering exhaust emissions, their add on computers would be using the oxygen information and they would be leaving it in place.

Glad to hear you made it thru the rain and poor roads.  That's a long ride to do under those conditions. :)

Record 108 here in central Texas the other day.  Heading for 110 this weekend.   Not riding even if I had mesh.    Cold front below 100 due next week!
