Azharuddin's son didn't survive the crash even though he was wearing a helmet! My two cents, if you are going on small rides on your superbike then you need to wear atleast a helmet but if you plan to go for long and really FAST rides (just like Ayaazuddin did) then you'll need more than just a helmet, a proper safety gear is a must!

Agreed, but since in Bangalore people would venture out without a helmet only for short distances, I specified only a helmet.

I dont see anything suspicious here, unless the R15 has been mistaken for an R6.

Take a look at the expression of the people in the background.

The rider though, is not displaying the correct body position as he is almost upright, not looking ahead into the turn and the bike is leaned over. Good lean angle on the bike though.

I meant maybe a prior discussion had happened.

Thanks guys, and Yes, that was a pre-planned shot.

I didn't click the pic, it was posted by the owner on my Facebook page on Exotics and Imports in Kerala

Not city limits, this is airport/beach road and not rush hour.

Balls of the feet on the pegs. Posting a picture for better understanding. (look as far ahead as you can see & where you wish to go)

Internet is full of pics of such stretched 'busas. But beats me why they do this design harakiri to otherwise beautiful 'busa.

Spotted these Harleys, a Night Rod Special and an Iron 883, at Jubilee Hills.
The Iron was running on Screamin' Eagle exhaust and filters!

Here are a couple of vids of Harleys running on Screamin' Eagle.
Btw, is the bike in the first video an Iron 883 (but it's got Forty-eight style RVMs)?
