I liked the bike.

OT - Why will someone want a bombproof bike? Was it made for terrorists? By chance if they have a bomb in their bike and happen to smoke

I've seen this honda a couple of times at Seshadripuram. It's a V-Twin if I am right. Sounds lovely. Very deep and bassy exhaust note. Looks like its maintained very well too.

You guys crossed me on Peddar road and then you guys stopped for a re group at bachelors adn then saw you'll ride past marine drive. I was in the ML.
I am sure it must have been quite a ride and fun too. The bike looked great and i saw you were the only one not pushing her. The person on the 1000rr (i think) was in alot of hurry .

Ya, I remember seeing the ML.

The guy on the 1000RR is always in a hurry as he doesn't ride too often so when he does, he's desperate .

Talking Raining Busaz

Spotted one at Marine drive near H2O. Busa makes any dumb color look gorgeous on her curves.
He was caught on my 10 shot burst & then zOOmed passed the traffic.

Nice picture and I liked the colour more than the black, infact.
Too many Ambers at a place. Looks as if it is a PS job, even if it is not.

Nice snaps there buddy. Looks like a motion picture.

And that Busa have a nice set of Akrapovic pipes too.

OT - Just compare the Last and Current gen busas. The new one is just 'Butt ugly' while the older one looks bespoke in its own right. I'd have an old one anyday.

Thanks Scorcher ! I wanted to make a GIF of the burst but it was exceeding 1MB limit. It would have been a Motion picture then.
& yep those are Akrapovik pipes, couldn't hear much of em as the rider kept a low profile in traffic. I'm a great lover of sharp cuts rather than curves which busa boasts so none of the generations excite me. I can say "I'm a self confessed Ducatista or a Yamaha person". Ducati is double the costs so kinda out of reach in Mumbai but any an R1 is attainable to anyone working in a good profile, service or its even maintainable but the need of a private garage is must !! & its the only reason keeping me away from the beast. The day I receive permission from my society to build a private garage i'll book her the same day.
