Speedy :- I agree mate, thats Malabar Hill and not Marine Drive. Probably, the reason I said Marine Drive is because I chased that guy right from Tarapore Wala Aquarium trying to get a good shot when finally succeeded only once we were down the Malabar Hill Slope. So yes, it was Malabar Hill finally.

Jonny :- No, I do not use Mac but a Toshiba Satellite.

Out of curiosity, I would like to know the reason behind asking this question.
Has it got something to do with my browser? As I use the Slimbrowser for surfing.

Nice looking hanspree ceeber. I've heard that the Konica Minolta and Hanspree models have a factory speed limiter till 190 km/h because of them being Japenese specific models is it true?

Big boy?? What are you riding?

the way you used pix elements to do masking its done mostly in PREVIEW facility of MAC OS. i use MAC so i thought you using the same quick masking techq.

for example you have used tail light portion to mask off the number plate ...

@straight6 : Then I am sure you will agree with me that its quite a stupid decision to buy one of these. Lets see if either of us can ever confirm it though.

@Johnny Bravo : You on a mac as well? There are quite a few of us here, including Sam baba as well. We should start a Mac thread.

Just a friendly advice. If you havent got it cleared then its a dam bad idea to take her out even if they ease off. The checks will remain & now even the normal pandu bhai's will be checking. So either get it cleared or sell her as otherwise you'll have to keep hoping to get lucky.

@quickdraw, can add another Mac user your list

No Jonny, I simply right click and open the image for editing in MS Paint (which is by defaulth) and copy which ever part i feel like using for hiding the # plate.

I can assure you that the white busa pics i have posted, haven't been edited in photoshop, or any other software. Those who think it has, should try to contact the owner of the bike, cause i vouch for my honesty. it ain't my bike at the end of the day.

OT - I have been in the business for quite a few years now, to submit 'edited' pics without mentioning it. not hitting out at anyone, just mentioning it. Here's another pic of the busa.

That bike is the way it is in the pics.
I have seen the bike myself,
No Photoshop work done for sure.
In fact I saw this bike even on sunday.

Even if you do clear your bikes, the rto or the DRI will harass.
I mean unnecessary stopping you and then even after your papers are checked, they will point out some or the other thing.

@JayR: Wasn't doubting the credibility, but was just pointing out what seemed to me like digital smudges.

@mantrig: Nice pics there. Love that CBR Ten Kate replica. Looks smashing.

, but got her after ages so do not feel like selling her. I have asked to know the procedure and the amount to get her cleared, till then just her spins around the area at night. I take her to pandu less areas in town .
