Fantastic pictures, Preetam and Hanmust!

The Harley Sportster looks fabulous! And the R1 looks great too! It's a pretty common sight in Bangalore nowadays. All R1s should be this particular shade of blue IMO!

OT:I wouldn't ride a bike like that, swerving in and out of lanes and getting into the line of oncoming traffic.Not meaning to point a finger at your brother, but no helmet or proper riding gear and the style of riding isn't the best of combinations when on a bike of this nature.
I hope he has an incident-free riding experience all his life.
As for the guys shooting the video, they go very close to the pedestrians and I think at one point they almost get onto the pavement.

I agree with you completely. We usually use every possible riding/safety gear. But in this case, it was actually i who rode the bike(with Helmet and riding gear) to my restaurant, from where my brother took it out for a casual ride(very short distance). hence the lack of gear !

But i apologize for the riding style as most of the time he was trying to escape from the crowd/traffic. But i'm by no means supporting the style of riding.

Ride Safe - Scy.

Hey no apologies necessary.I was trying to make a point with my observations, as a lot of people tend to ride SBKs without the appropriate gear, and weaving in and out of traffic seems stylish but just not right. (Saarillya mone dinesha!)

Wow!!! A Bombardier Can-Am Spyder RS!! Wonder if part of a show or someone's personal import. A big Kudos to the guy who would import a $20,000 (+110%) recreational vehicle.

I'm sure it was spotted in India! In fact, if I'm not wrong, it took part in the super car rally in Mumbai a few days back! However, I'm not entirely sure if it qualifies as a SBK. Maybe we should start a thread on ATVs and similar things.

That Can-am Spyder belongs to Bonito Chabria and those pictures (of the Spyder) are from Lonavala Kamats.
