aadix, may be you are right. But that is my personal opinion. You don't have to agree with that and you haven't. Yes, among these 4, ZXR and R1 fare somewhat better. But all these still look like 60-70% of a Busa or a ZZR 1400. As for Vizag beach, even a modified Pulsar gets attention here. This city is starved of SBKs unlike B'lore/Pune. Sure, a bike enthusiast can easily spot a CBR or a GSX but even a layman can spot a Busa or a ZZR1400. May be people do not like these two bikes much but I do. What to do? And yes, by the way, I heard a guy say he sometimes finds it tough telling R1 apart from R15 from a distance. And, no this guy is a not a 50 year old man but a 21 year old kid who dabbles in motorcycles.

Turned out a pleasure dealing with R and his buddies (who entertained me at some Swank Hyderabad watering hole where the who's who of Hyd seemed to gravitate ...at least that night- one of our party was also a certain IPL Hyd Opening Batsman but, since I'm no cricket fan, it could have been the Pope eating naan and chicken masala with us for all I knew; I surmise the team is the Deccan Chargers??), chauffered me around in one VERY impressive 7-series Beemer. Fact is it was the first time in my life I was in a cavalcade lead by a BMW 7xx while I tested out the Blade, and I sure felt important (and safe).

So, good Hyderabad hospitality and a darned danged adrenaline-infused ride back on Blade-San later, yours truly is happy as a tyke in a hardware store.

I think in their quest to shed weight, these bikes have become too small. Only exception seems to be Hayabusa and ZZR 1400 which are really massive. When I save up enough moolah, I have to look out for one of these two.
I'd like like to interup there buddy. This bikes are huge, albeit gonna are the days when they were bulky enough to put a man down.
But there's a reason for that, coz of their agility there are fast than ever more precise. A 600rr weighs to 163 kg dry weight, lets say with fuel filled in goes upto 183 kg. And thats not light. But don't compare them karizmas and RTR's please. Thats prepostorous.

These bikes definetly stand apart and noise they make stiches everyones mouth. Hayabusa and ZZR1400 have a huge engine, 1340 cc and 1352 cc (190 bhp) offcouse they'll be bulky, there's no way to cut the engine space. While with the 600s and 1000s, there's no point in feeding extra bulkness.

my pleasure sir,

am glad you had a good time in hyd, would have been nice if we could have met up. btw which waterhole was it?

but anyways congrats once again on the most neat looking sbk i have ever seen! R sure did know how to maintain the bike.

now how about some pics and a travelouge on your ride back to banglore on the cbr

ps: order up only motovation frame sliders to compliment the existing rear sliders.

yup, few points are very true, but afaik, vizag has quite a few sbks, its just that no one removes it much or keeps it parked in hyd, last time i was there, this was a major discussion going on in waltair club with most of my dad's friends and thier love for bikes and cars.

btw there are a few pics of a r1 with a r15 side by side, think it is rossieter's r1 thread, show those pics to you friend!

btw how is your bike doing? must be fun riding on the long winding roads of vizag! any long trips on the bike?

Thanx Mr. Aadix for asking. My bike's fine, thank you. And yes, it pastes a smile on my face everytime I rev up that engine. I take it out for a spin upto Rushikonda. Sometimes I rip it and sometimes I just go with the flow. And yes, Vizag's scenic beauty is quite right for biking or opentop cars. Especially on the winding beach road between Vizag and Bhimli which is free from trucks/pollution/heavy traffic. But unfortunately, I see very few exotic bikes/cars around here. There are quite a lot of superrich guys around here. How I wish I could brainwash them into buying some exotic cars/bikes. I can never afford to buy those but if others in my town do, then at least I get some voyeuristic pleasure watching 'em, haha...

[quote=netchef;1340268][quote=aadix;1339104]my pleasure sir,
motovation frame sliders to compliment the existing rear sliders.

aadix: Ohris or Osiris Sir? dunno for sure but it had a large glass frontage and a winding staircase as you entered. Oh yes, Banjara Hills area. Parking for around 6 cars in front and a heap of people milling about- which seemed to be the MI rather than the aberration. Yeah, wish I had the time to meet with you. Give me a shout when you're next in Bangalore.

Frame sliders are just what the Doc ordered!




straight6: Thanks, Sir. Honda seems to be one of my DNA strands. I tried hard to get enamoured with the Yamahas and things of this world, but Honda san kept showing up on radar- relentlessly.

huh?, netchef, did you post from the wrong id?

btw anyone has any updates on rossiter's bike, or if someone who is in touch with rossiter could ask him to post a small summary here would be good, the thread on xbhp about his bike repairs is a bit long.

I have asked him to do so via a PM. Also, aadix, you too have a PM.
