That means there were three groups riding.

We were on our way too offroad. I did pass a white Busa with a single digit registration no. That group collected themselves just at the start of the old highway, the busa was the last bike to join them.
Then there were my friends who i met at Mcdonalds and they were going to ride back to town as it was getting hot.
Now you mention another group that passed you'll. The sun shine has got all the power houses out to play. I just love it .

@nikibusa

no didnt. as you can see from my handle (53bhp), my inazuma is 53bhp (universal jap standard). no way on earth i could keep pace with supers. when i got passed, it was like my bike was stuck in the same place with superglue

my group consisted of my buddy's gpz900r (the original 80's crotch rocket), my LML Vespa 150NV (getting a long ride out after a recent engine rebuild) and a HH Karizma. We usually ride to my house which is 6km from datta snacks, have breakfast, and then head back. would love to join one of the longer rides though

Hope to see you soon.

53bhp , nice 53 you got there . If it was a darker shade , ppl would have not noticed it at all ;thinking it was modified Indian bike .
Do post little bit of its handling and how do you maintain it ? .Parts , service and know good and bad things .

Thats exactly what happens at signals. I havnt put the decals back so when guys ask me at signals the 3 standard questions (which bike?, how many cc?, average?), I say its a modified Pulsar

these pics dont do the bike justice though. The entire bike is built so that the frame can take 3 engine sizes: 400, 750 and 1200cc with no other changes but the engine. If someone asks me cc, i could easily pass it off as a 1200

It is the perfect city bike. Light, flickable and enough in there for someone who knows how to get the most of those 53 horses

The bike used to belong to an actor/model I know until he got an '07 Busa. The rear shocks needed to be replaced last time I saw it.

Thats a really beauty you got there. Do share some more information on the specs and some riding experiences. She must sound insane with those pipes. Looking forward to a clip. Thanks for the pics. Ride safe.

-------------------------------------------------------------------

Saw a brand new busa on Saturday and she didnt even have the regn. plates. Sadly the rider and the pillon were not wearing any gear, not even a lid. The busa was driven very sedately though. Here are the pics.

Also on the way back from our Sunday ride I saw the same blue R1 which was posted a few posts back. The rider was as usual riding the beast with floaters. Trailed the bike all the way from MG road upto Sadashivanagar after which I pulled into Shell to tankup. The R1 had an awesome set of pipes and sounded mad. The exhaust used to pop often when downshifted. Awesome sounding bike.

Those 4x4 Yoshi's sound mean. They make the bike sound much bigger than a 400.

That Busa is an '09. That's a long time being unregistered.

Keep an eye out for a black Triumph Tiger 1050 with a Two Brothers pipe in Bangalore. Belongs to a friend.

I did manage the shocks. All parts are available in singapore. Its more popular as the Suzuki Impulse there

When I bought the bike the dealer told me the seller wanted to buy a Busa. I thought in my head "why would anyone give up this light and flickable sweetheart for a 'busa, thank you lord for the good fortune you have bestowed on me"

The whole bike looks big as the frame can take a 1200cc engine too. The Yoshi's sound sweet. Never can be as sweet as my sewing machine honda cb350four with the original 4x4 cans. But sweet nonetheless
