Funny . Tomorrow they may think they own the roads & do not have to follow any traffic rules, just because they ride SBKs. It is such idiots with no respect to laws / other road users who bring a bad name to bikers. The police should immediately seize such vehicles & slap a heavy penalty. ( the yellow ATV in the picture can never come on a public road , it is not designed for that )

I thought it looked like you was not sure. You must have seen a white BMW 3 series pass by. My friend was with me and you know how it is with women. Next time your in town at night give me a shout and i shall be there.

S.D. is Sidharth. Daftary. He used to have a 929 and used to ride regularly.

Sorry Dude. Its a mistake on my part. They did have plates, just not visible in the pics. No offence to the riders though, they do a great job, though I have seen many SBK riders without helmets, or any protective gear at all.

The Busa seems to have a single custom Exhaust & no rear indicators.

Dunno why but I am suddenly not that interested anymore on the Busa.
Can anyone spot a rear disc brake on it?

I Just love that R1 bro...
today evening i have spotted an R1 in blue and bhusa in golden..The R1 guy was Ripping it making it roar but he was without helmet.

I just don't understand if one can't afford to buy a helmet then why do they own SBK's. On second thoughts may be he wants to show off "See i am on a SBK"

OT

@ syedhafeez : that is exactly the point I'm trying to make here. If you ain't gonna live long then whats the show off for? And even if you don't live long, die with grace and not like a street side bugger. Well, even the police in our country can't say anything to a superbike rider (read loads of moolah as bank balance and 99.99% of the times its black) so...

A KA registered Blackbird I had spotted a couple of months back. This one seemed to be a late 90s carb version.

Oh man, I love this bike. I dont understand the love of floaters though. In Bangalore every second biker wears floaters and rides.

To be honest, anything other than riding boots is as bad as floaters or chappals.

I crashed on Sunday morning wearing adidas shoes and they were destroyed. I have a hairline fracture and some bruising just above my left ankle.

If I was wearing my Sidi's, this wouldn't have happened.

I cannot stress enough on what straight6 pointed out. Gear is more important then the bike. One someone who's been down will know the pain.

^+1 to what you just said.
i had a side crash with a qualis and my riding boots took all the impact and ripped off all the plastic cladding of the qualis.and even then the boots were not damaged.i couldn't walk for a month due to a sprained ankle but still it saved my ankle from being shattered.

Also due to the thickness of the boot it also protected the gilles rear sets on the bike.that would have been quite a hit on the pocket had they been damaged.lol.

Tough one, straight6. Hope you recover soon.
One of the 1st things we are told to have when getting the MSF ( motorcycle safety foundation) course, is to always ride with shoes that have proper ankle protection. I've tried riding with sneakers once/twice, but never really liked it and decided to wear my boots no matter how short a ride.
