Manson, the black busa you are talking about was Zareer's bike. He was there with us to Manor remember? He has bought an orange black 08 Busa already.

Yup, i was referring to the black busa for the manor ride. Don't you just agree with me on the exhaust
So, what cans is he running on the 08 busa?

Rehaan, Thanks. Very interesting article.
BTW any take on brands of linings for SBKs? I've read forums talking of EBC and Ferrodo and other aftermarket brands being superior, but also found one set of professional riders who tested and swore by the OEM Honda spare part. Bit late for me, so the question is academic (I opted for the Honda part as the friends who source spares for me are not too conversant with brands/where to find them).

Manson: I took your advice and went 'easy' on the fresh brakes...they are still bedding-in an I find they are getting sharper. Thanks.

The couple seem to be wearing flip up helmets and this stretch seems to be just after sion while going towards chembur. Nice Shoei sling bag too.

P.S. - Manson, the first pic showed up as a red 'X' in my email and didnt open.
How big is the Varadero engine? Is it a twin? Shaftie?

ManishAsrani: Sir, are you paparazzi by any chance? You're always the man with the candid camera pics of exotica?
Don't get me wrong- I love them. Keep them coming.

@ ManishAsrani.. even i have spotted the white R1 while he was flying past me (150+kmph) near Jakkur (Hybd rd - NH 7)... Took the snap, but it came out real bad.. coz of a Pulsar guy..

See the pic...

The number of R1's on Bangalore roads is crazy..i have seen atleast 15 different ones, and i am only talking about the underseat exhaust models.
