Met Roald again today as well as the guy who handles their service (his name slips my mind now but helpful guy as well). Based on their inputs and what I'd want as well these are some of the accessories that I'd be interested in.

1. Skid plate
2. Lockable fuel cap (hurts to have to pay for that)
3. Crash guard
4. Luggage carrier

Stuff that I might consider in future if I feel the need:
1. Gel seats
2. Main stand
3. Arrow exhausts
4. New speedo unit with tacho (I wish this came with a fuel guage as well)
5. Lock for the bike

I'll check on the pricing when the time is appropriate. Right now seems overkill since I'll seriously consider the purchase decision only after the monsoons are over, perhaps October'ish 2014 or slightly later.

Bonnie demand supply seems fairly balanced from my discussions with a 30 day wait.

Apparently the Street Triple is now at 120 day wait in Bbay.

I believe if you get the Arrow exhausts fitted you cannot have the main stand too. Something to do with the angle of the exhausts.

Any purchase decision from my side will be after the monsoons as well.

Thanks for that wonderful explanation. Though people when hear the stock audio of Bonnie and compare it with a sewing machine but, as you rightly said the stock audio track of the Bonnie is beautiful ( though very subtle) but, i never heard it so intently to decipher the firings of two cyclinders separately

Any way to identify that? At Idle or while revving?

Avi, the same way as we used to do with RD 350, whilst balancing the carbs. On a cold start, when the engine is idling close both the exhaust openings with yours palms and listen (wear a thin working glove). This way you can feel it and listen to it as well.

Even now when I start up my RD 350, I get a lot of pleasure just to feel and listen to her in this fashion - my son compares it to scratching the forehead of your pet dog.

The price list except the speedo/tacho conversion kit seem to be at par with the international pricing of the items. As I said before the tacho kit seems to be slightly cheaper.

Best Regards & Ride safe

Ram

Thanks for sharing this accessory.

Flouroscent color adds some jazz to bike. Maybe iam just too thick, what is the purpose of this cover? Just to protect the shoe from dirt while using the toe for shifting gears?

This is taking sanitation levels to an all time high while riding

Thats what it is for Avi The rubber on the shifter could scuff up the leather upper of formal shoes. This one kinda protects from the same.

I am looking for something that fits the gear lever and another that fits the brake pedal too.

I think its just a brand, The quality you would only be able to tell once you have it in your hand. The ones i have is a very good quality, with good cushion for the shoes.

This is the only green the company makes, so no choice really. This matched with my bike colour and so i took it. They have a black, blue, white and red sock with them at the store.

The purpose of this is you can wear any shoe and ride the bike. The exposed gear lever does leave a mark on soft leather and in time you will notice a gear mark on the shoes, this prevents it.

I have not heard or seen anything that is for the brake pedal. There is a desi tedious method if you want to do this. Get a rubber piece and heat bond it for the brake pedal in a form like a sock. I dont know if anyone has done it, or how advisable it is to do.

Think of the extra as a small tax in proportion to your bike Speedy

Congratulations, again!
Your bike looks sensational and defines the term "SEXY".

It really does not pinch or bother..its just that the right price should be charged with profit. I can understand the store is a south bombay address and the overheads are higher..at the end its a friend only who has made money..so no issues.

Thank you. Soon she will change her cloths to get even more "SEXY".

Mobike008 please do check if you get radiator guard for the Bonnie. I have ordered it for my bike.

Totally agree. But, what will someone like me do who has a black bike? You cannot ask him to be devoid of colors eh? Hence, the next best option, jacket/pant color coordination

Never head of a guard for radiator. Isn't the skid plate suppose to work to save the radiator too?
