Sammy, when i bought my Pulsar in 2003, i covered 800kms of city riding in just 8 days, which works out to about 100kms a day! Meanwhile, look at the laziness you display!

Thanks Diwa. Thanks for reminding us, yes the Supra did come in white.

Yeah, I guess Bangalore and Pune weather would be pretty similar. The weather is pleasant to warm throughout so 30-40 secs should be good enough for me too.

But I agree with taking the car to work as you commute at those late hours.
I would do the same.
Yeah man, the Apache in me does want to ride more but the job guy in me doesnt get much time

Hee hee well Ben those were "younger" days, remember ?? :P
But yeah man, all those years of sitting on a chair typing have made me amazingly lazy. Imagine, the tri phase is still in my almirah and not on the car. Also, days ending at 10-11pm doesnt give much time to do anything over the week. I look longingly at the bike when I leave for office and give the same look and sigh when I park the car next to the bike. Weekends are the only time I have and with wifey's project deadlines(she has her own freelance work) going crazy these days even they are spent on the comp helping her out.

Congrats Sammy. One bike that has made my lust for it, though not yet ridden one. And white is my fav for RTR, along with silver.

How are the stock tyres, specially the rear?

Thanks a lot navs. I was also undecided between the White and the Titanium Grey but after spending time at the showroom I couldnt resist the white one. Especially because the white screams I am a 180 .
Until now I havent faced any issues with grip or comfort, but as you know I havent really tested the tyres yet so cant really give you a concrete answer.

Nice buy!

Buy a red flasher light and play Chor Police with Bengaluru cops for a few days until they make out that white Apache's are not only for them now.

hee hee, thanks man. Good idea but would have to ride on the wrong side of the road to look the part.
Might make enough moolah to cover the price of the bike during this time though

The bike looks gorgeous in white. The other day I saw a Honda Activa in white as well and fell in love with that color and now your bike. I am tempted to buy either the RTR or the Activa just for the color. Congrats and Enjoy!!!

THanks Jump Start. THe apache has the normal mudguard which I have but havent posted the pics of, and the one which is already on the bike.

THe pic of the attached mudguard will make it clearer. This is not the normal one (that is yet to be used).
