If its go karting..i suggest waiting for Sachin's track to open...the trip to Hakone is not worth it! Those karts are the pits and the track is even worse!

well rehaan, all the formalities are almost done with, but they are waiting for Sachin to have some free time so he can come and Officially opent he track! I believe he's playing Pak/Aus right now. Although, going by ur team's present form, it would make no difference who really plays anymore.

Also, i think they still have to get the karts, though MRF has sent one Mondiale for Sachin to use.

Just returned from catching the first day last show of Dhoom

Movie is like any Bollywood fare but there isa charm to it. The titles are done up very well. Bike chase sequences are awesome. Movie should do well in metros. I doubt half the people watching the movie next to me even knew what a Busa is

hey Dippy, NC
I just returned back from the movie , but u guys were quick
Had i not had a puff, I would have been quicker

the movie is really awesome ,
but at every moment I tried to compare it with 2F2F , so found a bit dissapointing..(only whe u compare the 2 movies)

But overall the movie is really great , the races superb , the stoppie on the Busa was just awesome.

Actingwise , AB , UC , and JA all were awesome
females , Raima Sen was sexy in the first song
Isha D trying to do a copy of Neha Dhupia coming out of the beach in a swim Suit.

BTW , has any1 seen any Bandit 1200 on Indian roads ??

Yes infact seen the same Bandit from the movie up close since it was supplied for the movie by my friend.

And here are pictures of the Busa riden by John Abraham in the movie when it was at my friends garage






Infact a few bikes were damaged in the fire scene in the movie and my friend who was the actual rider in place of Johns gang while riding was also burnt

hey cool pics dippy.

Anyways since the topic of damaging superbikes came out i just remembered. A brand new black (or a drk blue busa) almost crashed and damaged its fairing on one side when it tried to avoid hitting a RX100 takin a U-turn at JV link road. The Busa was immed put into a truck and taken away. The rider's my dads friend. Will try to get some info on the same. Very Sad na

And about the Bandit, i've seen Zubin on the bike once at Santacruz. I guess the bike is parked just next to the Skoda dealership in Juhu. (completely covered * )

Hey V12,

way off topic here, but I was wondering why you got an avatar of a V-Twin engine when your ID says V12??

The V-Twin denotes "V" and theres also "12". So V12.
