Hmm. I know which building basement you were in. I live in the vicinity. The combination of the 3 vehicles is unmistakable (as is the surrounding of course).

Some months back there was also an RD 350 standing in the same garage but haven't seen that in a while (maybe it belonged to a friend of his).

PM me the next time you're visiting this area - would be good to catch up and I hope I'll have my very own Bull by then to compare notes (fingers crossed in another 6 weeks).

I'm surprised the Intruder was completely open. Its usually covered up as well.

Cheers,

I started clicking some pics and I noticed a beast under the covers hibernating. Could not resist but just move the cover a bit to get a glimpse of the monster. Clicked a couple of pics without getting the cover off and covered the steed back the way it was before riding back home at 5 in the morning.

What an end to the weekend, Spotted A Beauty & The Beast standing in Peace.

For the owner if you are reading - Sorry if the pics should'nt have been here. None of your bikes were touched or fiddled with. All that was done is enjoyed looking at them and cliked some pics for folks onboard.

not too sure about the others, but my friend folds them when the bike is parked, and opens them up when hes riding. i guess its cause they stick out a bit when opened up..

Hopefully, I am getting my bull delivered tomorrow morning.

I should be coming there soon, will drop you a pm for sure when the next plan is on.

The Intruder's cover was lying on the R1 if you can see it in the pic. Seems like the bike was just back from a spin.

Pics of a Suzuki GSX1000R, a Yamaha R1 and a Hyosung Comet 250 spotted in Bangalore over the weekend. Also spotted a red-black 2010 Suzuki Hayabusa, but couldn't manage to snap it.

A rider echoes his respect for his bike when he buys the right sort of gear and makes use of them. I strongly believe in this.

This is blasphemy! This fellow is wearing flip-flops and riding a litre-class super-bike! The only saving grace is the lid!
I shall continue to flog this dead horse in utter dismay.

Too bad some people have no inclination what damage a minor crash at low speeds can do. Guess they learn the hard way.

On one of our rides towards Krishnagiri dam a crazed bus driver at high speeds tried squeezing in between the line of bikes (we were following a single file and were at slow speeds as we had to pull over, we were on the shoulder of the road) and missed ramming into 3 bikers. He swerved at the last second and the rear of the bus clipped a guy's RTR handle bar. The biker fell and even with his riding jacket and woodland boots he ended up with hairline fractures on his arm and foot. Lucklily it wasnt any worse. Now imagine what the extent of injury would have been if it had been chappals on the riders feet.

I'm too sad to see the guy wearing silly chappals on R1. Atleast he couldve wore a set of shoes and gloves.

The only way they will ever learn is the hard way. And I shudder to think how many more will be injured or possibly be killed, just because of their own negligence and lack of safety sense. Most of them anyway, are posers. (pardon me for being rather graphic and for going off-topic)

Spotted an MT01 on Sunday. It does have presence, that bike! Sorry, no pictorial evidence for that. The bike just disappeared leaving behind a rorty and sweet exhaust note!
