Another "dhakka start" for the Ace yesterday and I got drenched on the small spin around the block. I must say, the Ace didn't feel heavy when I rode it slowly yesterday.

Yeah, and he was the one who sat on the bike while we pushed, and don't forget that we had to idle it for another five minutes after we cranked it
But thanks for coming over, good you guys dropped by.

Thanks Sammy.
You really have to see the helmet in person, or a better picture sometime, it is beautiful.
Paid 12K for it, shipped to my doorstep, the breakup was about 8K for the helmet, and 4K for shipping and duty.

Wow, i finally come across another person who owns an Ace in the country. Is yours a black & silver by any chance, someone i know had mentioned a black & silver one in chennai, this was almost two years ago though.

You had the paintjob done after you bought it, or did it come like that from the previous owner. Btw, that fancy colour scheme is begging for an aftermarket windscreen, probably an iridium one.

For the indicators, you could lookup www.ebay.uk, great aftermarket suport for the Ace around UK.

I was certain you'd post here soon enough. The ad on the classified section has come after more than a few weeks of contemplating an upgrade.
The Thunderace has been one of the most special things in my life since the evening i brought it home for more reasons than one.
I am at a stage where if i do not let go, I will mostly not ever let go and maybe then add to the garage than replace. Just testing waters right now.
I am really digging to get something from the recent crop, and it does not make much financial sense in having two Sunday vehicles parked most of the other part of the week.

oh man, u know its always such bad timing for me. Two bikes I have loved ever since I got on the team. One was RT's kawa and the second has been the Ace.

Wish I had the cash now man, would have flown to bbay to pick it up before u got a chance to re-think
