sammyboy: Not quite, Sir. Thought I spied the ZX12R in that lot. First giveaway was the gleaming chrome of a side exhaust can...was that an 03 R1? Looked closer and some details emerged.

Navpreet: good bike, Sir. Ride safe. If you ever see a grown man cry, it's because he hasn't found a machine yet.

Aah my bad, missed the second batch (the lone pic with the Kawa). Thanks Netchef. And you can say the sentence in bold again, once for me as well. :(

Hehe.well i like to stay in the sidelines with my old school seemingly unoticable bike.

also that isn't a chrome gleam.its titanium.

Had some good fun with the R1's by overtaking on the outside of turns.the supposedly track tools proved to be quite useless.other than just one guy who has a riding experience of many many years.

also i had a small stint with one of the R1's.i found it to be lame in power delivery.No offence to R1 owners.but there is just no power in the bottom or mid range and then it comes in the top.but there too it didn't feel scary as such.



by the way Netchef, I would really request you not to address me as sir.i'm quite younger than you and i'll feel bad about it.please.


sammyboy yes that road is very much fun now.its been paved almost all of it barring a few patches.and its great fun too.

sammyboy: Ah, then we grieve together, collect commisserations in bulk deal. What cruel fate deprives two good blokes of their ride? Where is justice?

Wow Navpreet, been almost a year since I have driven on it.Vasant Vihar also used to have a nice road till morons started ripping on it without sense and they had to make breakers on it. ( aah u made me homesick )

Yeah will get it this time.

I am looking for a deal for a helmet with bluetooth built into it.

The current prices here are crazy.
