That's a refreshingly different shade to the beast. Looks good.

Awesome picture of the SAFARIS. Happy wheels.

@vijaythacker

This is cycus grey, the color in which Safari was launched.

@richie Congrats, welcome to the club. Man you are one lucky guy. I didn't get a bike till I was 21. That too got permission to buy one, did not get sponsorship.

Young blood + Safari = Dangerous driving. Drive carefully.

@1100D: She is just happy about being at a farm, the good time she had and finally the biscuits she was eating!

@Beejay: Thank.

@Richie4u: Congrats! A VX! Cool!
Suggestion - check out if the retro fits have been done. I do not see the ECU cover. And please remove those plastic sheets.

Stunning pics rrsteer. Safari looks at home in the jungle

I am told diesel motors are not allowed in some jungles. How true is that?

I believe in certain valleys / forest region you are not allowed to disturb the tranquility with the diesel grunt. I reckon this is more enforced during the mating season.

And if you are using the vehicle for spotting, then a diesel, which announces your approach like Tarzan would, then, whats the point!

@Cool_Dube:

Congrats! Wishing you a great ownership experience.

@ CONGRATS, richei 4you and cool_dube.
You'll sure love the ownership experience.

@ rrsteer. Nice pics of Safari in Jungle. It all looks so natural.

Nice idea of a Convention of Safari owners! No response coming up?... Any takers? or may be the timing is not right for discussing it, we all may be busy with our works. But, idea sounds exciting.
