2 beasts at the same place- YAMAHA R1 & HONDA CBR. Took these pics in Salt lake. Amazing bikes. The rear wheel was gigantic.

P.S- Not to forget the 7 series.

All the pics are taken in Salt lake. Check the timing in the pictures.

Finding the Superbike Story-
I was quietly walking down one of the typical lanes of Salt Lake(near swimming pool) when I see this beautiful house. Inside the garage there was this White Chevy Cruze and a Chevy Beat. That caught my attention for a while. When I was returning I took the same lane. I came close to the house when I hear sound which were pretty odd(We dont hear idling superbike sound everyday). Then when i get to see the garage I see these. Two beautiful machines. What mainly drew my attention were the rear wheels.They were amazing huge. All this while I was standing alone in front of their house gazing at the bikes. Then the two guys come out and they get ready to roll. This is when I gathered some courage and approach them for a snap. This is it and then they rev away VROOM VROOM VROOOOM...

Congratulations on a sweet looking ride. The busa in my opinioun is the most comfortable of super bikes and great for long rides. The 09 White with blue busa did not di it for me, but the 10 white with black combo does impress me a bit. I still love the 08 blue with gold combo. Ride safe. If you dont mind my asking and feel free not to answer. Is the bike on finance or out right purchase and what is it costing you as in Down payment and instalments if on finance. Dont mean to offend you in anyway, just wanted to know so that i know how much to save . Thank you.

Oh Yaar ! Those are exactly the bikes which I've narrowed down for me. Exact same colors. And the best part, I planned the exact same Exhausts for the R1(Akrapovics). Dude, how can you be so close ? huh ! Great find buddy ! Now to choose one among is THE TASK !!!

Expect one by Mid Year

Thanks bros. See, I always end up with a confusion when to choose among the R and Blade. Owned a Busa previously, so ruled out the New Busa.

Some say the Blade is face ugly and looks so bland. I don't feel a thing that sorts. But it would pain if someone tell me I put my money on a ugly bike. Have a similar experience with the busa.

On the other hand the R1's design is widely accepted and radical. But not half as manageable as the Blade. Confused bigtime !

Will come up with sometthing, Will keep you guys posted

The guys riding the Blade and the R1 are brothers from Kolkata. One of them as mentioned earlier is fireblah from xbhp and both the bikes have ownership threads there.

Goodluck to him with creating id's here.
