Thanks Ram sir. The thought is touching. They have called me only by 4 pm. Don't think they'd do anything starting exactly at 4 :-)

Congratz Shubz! I see you've already got a crash guard on your bike. Why the extra numbler plate (black) jutting out to the side of the OE white one though? Its not going to last a week in Bangalore traffic bro ......

Congrats Subhz, Lovely color of the bike and look forward to a detailed riding report soon.

I like the Iron so much more than the Roadster.

Have fun and ride safe !!!

I presume the extra number plate is actually for the registration no. While his handle name remains where you can see it now

Thanks DG again! I reached there by 3 pm in the hope that I will be done with the formalities by 4 pm and i can ride back home before the traffic thickens. But fate had other ideas for me. At the showroom, they said they cannot let go of the bike until the registration numbers are shown (as per their SOP's). I had already stuck my Handle on the actual regn plate. So the only alternative was to run to JC road (or thereabouts) and get a number plate. So ran to Mission road/lalbagh road - found a number plate maker, got a fiber/plastic number plate and ran back to the showroom. they fixed the whole thing and then the paper work. 1000000000 signatures lol!! and by the time the bike rolled down the ramp, it was close to 5:45 pm! Close to getting dark. The traffic was horrendous. could only use gear 2 , rarely gear 3. and got home in one piece!

Thanks sir. It looks much much better in daylight than in the pics. Yes, you are so right, the extra thing jutting out is for the actual registration number. Here is the outcome

Congrats Shubz. Welcome to the Harley gang!! Wishing you years of happy riding.

I see you seem to have picked up a Jacket and other gear. Details/pricing of all accessories fitted and gear taken would be appreciated. The 2 number plates on the rear somehow spoil the clean rear look. The rear sissy bar is removable, I think. It looks cool and I need that for my bike as my wife is not ready to sit without it.

Wishing you a wonderful time and hope to see you at IBW, Goa and All India HOG ride along with your new ride on 16th-18th Jan.
