Default hi there!

Hi one n all!

This is Jay originally from Bombay and now Dubai. With the Almighty's grace I bought myself a brand new K8 Suzuki GSXR 1000 this past October and have been enjoying her thoroughly.

I am a member with xbhp under the same id, thought of joining up here too...anything to do with bikes and cars . I also have a '00 Honda City 1.5 exi ( amazon green) and a '03 Hero Honda CBZ (silver). These are all of my babies by God's grace and I freak out on each of them.

I just got brand new alloys, new tyres, a new stainless steel exhaust system, new headlamps, K &N air filter, new upholstery fitted on my Honda...oh did I mention I got a brand new paint job done on the car too.

Need to do a lotta other stuff to my GSXR 1000 in terms of fitting a killer exhaust system and then some, also want to get a spoiler and skirtings fitted on my Honda...will post some pics for the records.

Cheers!

Jay.

Rajesh,

Yes the first one was a a matter of fact shot on Palm Beach Road and yeah the roads there are absolutely fun to ride on without a shadow of a doubt.

Also many thanks for appreciating my bike and car

Ram,

Thank you for the welcome and the appreciation. I see no plastic protruding whatsoever...I mean is just the fact I bought the bike brand new and was a bit too lazy to get the wrappings taken off...is all .

Cheers!

That's the add on crash guard thingy. Helps protect the fairing in case of a bad crash - those things are expensive to replace.

Hey Ram,

Yes indeed just like Immortal mentioned those are the frame sliders meant to protect the fairings in case of a crash... God forbid
