There are still a few of these beasts running around. They are a Russian built two stroke pig that has the unreliability of the Royal Enfields. They were the bike of choice a while back.
Are you sure?
I own a couple of those IZH Planetas here in Germany. I ride one with a sidecar as my everyday ride in winter. 1000 km per month with no problems at all. I use that russian bitch also for long distance rides in winter. 500 km a day is really no problem ...

And my Enfield. Build in 2005 it has more than 45.000 km on it. I rode 35.000 of them. No mayor problems. Everyday in the summer and as usual for long distance rides ...

A motorcycle is always the result of its mechanic. It might be different in Russia and India but basically they are not that bad
How ever. Just my two cents and I really like your RR. Keep on riding!
Remember when SEX was safe and MOTORCYCLES were dangerous ...
