By the way Kerker is now owned by Supertrapp.

As for the Two Brothers, if you're around Indiranagar keep your ears open as you might hear the blue Busa that I posted. I can assure you, you'll hear it before you see it .
Straight6...love your handle. Ever heard of the Buick Roadmaster '48? It had a straight 8. Our fly owned one many moons ago, but Dad plonked in a Perkins P6 truck diesel.

Yeah, heard about Supertrapp. Shall definitely keep an ear to the ground for the Busa.

Same was featured in a south indian movie long ago, had seen pictures then.

netchef, suzuki refinement is quite commonly known or referred to, have heard the term from the old timers around here. Not sure if they'd say that about the new age suzuki liter class though.

Thanks Manson. You guys are lucky to have tasted of so many delights. I'm very reluctant to ask anyone for a ride on their bikes for fear of doing some damage, and have flat refused on a couple of occasions. Logically, I don't let anyone but my mechanic ride my Blade (old school ideas?).
Therefore slim chance of my riding a Suzy till I actually own it

My claim to knowing these motorcycles is the few of them i rode in the almost two years i was looking for one.
These were mostly from the mid and late 90s, post that i havent bothered with anything besides a brief thing with anku's 954 and sean's fz1, thats where i got a little scared of these ultra light and quick machines

@Netchef - My favorite car is the Nissan Skyline and the Supra and hence the handle. No, I havent heard of that car but I'm sure my late uncle would have known a lot about it. He loved those old cars.

@Nikibusa & Manson - No, it wasnt my 954(I wish!). It belongs to a non-bhpian who joined us for the ride. The one sitting at the back was not mine either(sigh).

Manson, I even told you that this other guy joined us with a ditto 954 as anku's. I would have obviously told you with excitement if I had got one and would have come for that ride you guys went for.

Niki, you came in the black santro with your handle on the quarter glass, correct?


I still have the RX as my ride. But hope to give you guys the good news very soon.

Hmm Straight6 looking at your avatar I thought maybe the 954 was yours & you were the one on it. But 1 never knows you might be lucky enough some day. And dude i am not surprised that you mistook the green shade for black as it was Dark enough near the parking. Would like to meet you too as you seem to be from the same group of people i know.For my Handle on the quarter glass, i have to say that you have smart observation skills. Cheers Bro.

The bike in my avatar is the F4i, not a 954. You come to thakur all the way from vikhroli?

There is one dealer who gets Skylines to the US but they turn out to be really expensive because it has to go through some procedures to make it street legal in the US. Are you a US citizen?

No, Sir. Very much desi maal. Find it difficult to get 50km from Bangalore!
