Phew, till I reached the bottom of the previous page, I was completely breathless. That is an unbelievable garage. And he owns that chopper, huge area and lake too!!!

Those are seriously some nice bikes.
Hope he invests in cars too.

Never heard of the Mohite family before. But now I do.
Beautiful set of pics wheelieboy.

Tax free income grows fast. This is the kind of money sugar farmers make. I visited the area some years back. There a dozens of smaller sugar barons in Kholapur.

Jeezuz...! And we thought farmers were poor....it seems the likes of Kolhapur and Punjab are making more than a few statements.

That's one helluva collection...reminds me of the old adage'..."whosoever said money can't buy happiness, just doesn't know where to shop..."

It's nice to know that some Indians are making good use of their money. Maybe some of these tycoons can sponsor an F1 track too...or organise WRC stages..

I dont know abt that :S :S

I do know that the R6 hasa fly by wire throttle. I dont know if it does away with the whole accelerator cabel though......

But one thing I do know is the new R6 has been selling like hot cakes and is a technhological marvel....it is loaded with new features and the like !!

ok, just checked up a bit using google, and looks like you are partly right at least...

usually, mechanical linkages are used, but in fly-by wire systems, the whole thing is replaced by sensors and an ECM.

For more technical details, check out this link http://www.picotech.com/auto/applica...e_control.html
