Btw, Wednesday is Bakrid, right ? is the showroom working on a holiday ? im guessing they will complete RTO formalities on Tuesday ? Our office is closed on account of festival.
Yeah man, this has been one of the longest weekends of my life
They have 2 days for the formalities, I am hoping they are open on 17th. If not, one more day of waiting

No confirmation on the to be launched NEW Kawasaki Ninja 250 R in early 2011 ?

Had been to the bajaj showroom yesterday, but it was closed, what did i expect :-)
Got a look at couple of bike hanging with one wheel on the floor. Some weird theme at Adyar Probiking showroom.
Hope i find time someday during this week.
Never seen a green Ninja up close in chennai, once saw a black one riding past me. But never could get the size of the bike nor the sound of it.
Hope the real deal is big enough and fits my imaginations of a sports bike.

Default @!&%^&%^&( Delivery delayed

Arrrrrhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh.

Got a call at 5:30 from the probiking showroom that the RTO has put my file on pending. Why ? Because the bill which had the address had one line for landmark more than what the invoice mentioned.

For GODS SAKE, is it rocket science to understand that a landmark is added to enable the bill reaching me easily?

Anyways, so the entire invoice etc. will need to be changed to match the address proof alphabet to alphabet and the RTO is off tomorrow.

The bike will now be delivered on Thursday evening, hopefully.

I can understand the anguish. But as they say, "Sabar ka phal meetha hota hai" or something like that.

Post pictures when you get hands on your new baby.

Well in my family, Thursday is considered as very lucky and auspicious day as it is the day of Sai Baba, most of our cars, bikes, electronics, almost everything big is bought on thursday, so may that also bring you luck.

Sorry about ti Sammyboy
That's the regular Indian authorities attitude to play spoilsport on others happiness.

But just one more day. It will pass in a jiffy.
I remember when i booked my yamaha in 1999 after all the difficulty of convincing the whole family why i needed a bike for months, the company had to go on a strike INDEFINITELY, at least you have a date to count on bro.
Hold on to your seat.
Everything will work your way.
Thinking of this waiting period in the future, you will cherish your baby even more, count on it.
Cheers

Today, the 17th of November, is a very gloomy day! I woke up to the sound of rain at 7:30 and it's unusually very gloomy! Samarth, you wouldn't want your green-goblin to be delivered on such a boring day now would you?

Don't fret my good man!

And today, promise yourself that you wouldn't talk about your bike, even a little bit. Don't look up the internet for pictures or info either. Take it upon yourself and avoid anything to do with the Ninja today! That's the only way to tackle the nerves.

Thanks Abhay, Visaster and Suhaas . Am okay now though was pretty P.O. at the authorities when I heard the news . Its kind of a good thing that it was postponed, now I will get some time to go and check the gear out. Was planning to order online but now think will get the stuff from DSG and get better gear later.

@ Suhaas - Sign of a future philosophy professor?

Sammy - Hope they solve the issue today, ride 50 KM non stop immediately after the delivery. That will make you forget everything!

Thanks man Yeah, hopefully if I get it before 5 I will for sure, post that it would be maddening to ride it in the traffic so will do a short ride at night.
But you are right, a ride has to happen today.

Never have the words 'DSG' and 'gear' been used in the same sentence without the reference to a Skoda or a VAG car! And you've pulled it of Sammy!

What's the update on the Ninja? It's Thursday today and we're expecting some tasty pictures!

Oh yes, philosophy could be an option!

Latheesh's advise stands out if you ask me! Samarth, as much as we want you to take pictures of your new Ninja and put them up here, you must NOT log onto Team-BHP and instead, proceed towards Mysore!

EDIT: Didn't see your post Samarth! I was slow at keying-in the post! Blame the weather I say!
