Congratulations. But I see your Triumph is up for sale on Facebook? Wedding Blues?

Cheers...

Thanks everyone for the wishes, means a lot to us. Just wanted to share this with fellow petrolheads knew that it will be appreciated here.

On a serious note, its actually good to see that your fiancee willingly came for the shoot and also agreed to do the last one which looks scary in the pic itself
The bike is 108ps I got the Euro Power map, I had put this picture up on instagram with title 108bhp vs 1biwihp

Nope, she hated the acceleration in the 328i and has just sat on the bike once. She likes sedate driving and has never accompanied me on a trackday. She just liked the idea of pre-wedding shoot hehe.

A direct question requiring an honest answer and a prayer that your better half doesn't see this. How hard was it for you when your fiancee placed her shoes on your bike's front mudguard for the photoshoot?
True love is fine and all, but shoe on paint is truly hearbreaking.
I had no idea she had put her leg on the mudguard till you pointed this out, she was instructed to keep it on the tire. I must have a husband wife conversation with her later today.

Thanks Jaggu!

The pictures are great, Kudos to the girl bearing all the cold!

Just a quick question: Was this guy -(who is taking pictures) using Studio lights, in a foggy morning?
Yeah, we used studio lights.

Nah, I got married in December and just recently put it up for sale because I've not been riding the bike much (did about 12k since I bought it in 2014) so thought might as well get something impractical and ride it while I still can (not getting any younger). Although I love this bike, but can't keep two.

Congrats Petrolhead as you step into a new phase in your life. Appreciate the masterstroke of roping in your fiancee and letting her know upfront of your love for automobiles. Home Minister's support is vital if you have to continue pursuing your passion. Trust me: I am saying this out of experience

Awesome!

Now let's sit back and watch this go viral.

Thought of patenting this idea? I suspect there will be plenty of copycats of this kind of photoshoot, albeit perhaps not with as much finesse.

Amazing pics Quickdraw - I had planned a similar photoshoot for my wedding as well. But my Z was sold a month earlier - and never got a replacement till date. The shoot is still pending - will request the new owner if he could lend me the bike for it. Anyways for the wedding, I had a good lineup - thanks to my good friends (from the Triumph group) - A Triumph Speed Triple (Rahul @ Odeen12), Tiger XCX, Street Triple and Bonneville T120. Was really a dream come true will share some pics later on this thread.
