one of the best drives to lonavala ever...
and ya sum other kid taking pics touched the cb1000r and the owner of the bmw 1150r (a guy in his mid 40's) said aloud ''dude u can touch their wives but u cant touch their rides'' one of the best lines i have heard in a long time..
the owner of the cb1000r said he recently bought it for 11 lacs ..did not get a chance of talking to others,except the guy with the bmw who said he had never heard about ''TEAM-BHP'' !!! and he said they usually come to lonavala (like the whole group) just as a stress busting ride !..
enjoy the photos ..
cheers

spotted a black R1 under the cox/ITC town flyover. This paticular bike seems to be in a pretty bad shape and looks like an old model. There is a small garage besides the flyover and looks like the bike was in for repairs. This place is bang opposite the petrol bunk beneath the flyover which is under construction

The accessories on that bike are not very thoughtfully chosen.
I was going to say the same thing, looks like the guy ordered everything on the catalog. The only interesting thing I found on the bike is the new Michilin Power1 Rubber wonder how it performs.

Pity on that BMW rider who haven't heard of this wonderful site.
Cant blame him for that, he's probabaly a shade too old to be as net savvy as one of us.
Garrett, you seem to have bumped into a bunch of regulars. I'm guessing you missed spotting a stunning bronze-black gixxer thats been posted earlier in this thread.

The blue doesn't go well with the bike.

That rubber is super sticky but he'll probably have to change it at around 4k. That is race compound.

That bike was sold to someone in Bangalore.

S6, I'm was referring to Devang's gixxer, not Prasad's. Love that gixxer, very hawwt and yet so subtle.

Those I think are the 2 Thane guys who have taken delivery of the official bikes from Swargate Suzuki in Pune.

Yeah I am sure its really nice in the bends, even the Soft compound pilot power lasts the same. I am really hearing some good things about these ones though would love feedback by someone who has had em on. And these are street tires, I am not sure they are "exactly" race compound per say.

Saw an orange (red?) Hayabusa at M.G. Road in Pune. I think he left from the Dream Bikes' showroom. I was there 30 mins before I saw the guy, so not sure.

Heard an SBK on the airport road too last night.

Pune seems full of SBKs!

Last night saw the Ducati Naked bike (dont know what its called) and the Suzuki GSX1000. Sorry no pictures as i was ordering food and they rode past. Will try and get pictures the next time round.

Berj79 the Gsx i saw was ridden by Prasad himself, so are you sure he sold the bike or is it yet with him or got another one for himself.
