Bangalore native now in Chicago
I moved to Chicago from bangalore last year...just found this forum and thought it will be a good way to keep in touch with whats happening back in the homeland.
I currently ride a Yamaha YZF 600R.....which is my seccond bike since I moved here.....I had a Kawasaki ZRX1100 for about 4 months before I had an accident and the bike was totalled by the insurance company. I also own a Yamaha RXG which is lying in my garage back home.
Hope to make a bunch of friends on this forum.

Welcome to a fellow biker!
GTO, the ZRX and the YZF are a different class of bikes. The YZF is a sport-tourer (was originally a supersports bike when it was launched, but the 600 class has drastically moved on) while the ZRX is a standard. Both good bikes though, though the ZRX has a lot more character, especially if he had the Lawson replica paintwork.

Thanks for the warm welcome....save for a sore right leg for a couple of weeks I was unscratched thanks to my gear....unfortunately my bike din't fair as well.
To answer GTO's question...the ZRX was not that much more powerfull than my YZF....besides I was leaning towards something a little sporty and comfortable at the same time to cater to my touring requirement....the YZF fit this criteria perfectly.....on a bonus I got a great deal on it from a fellow member at ChicagolandSportbikes and it is blue in color(the fastest color)
