Rajeev, bikers were never known to be formal. Lets keep the usage of 'sir' at the minimum

Done. But not a crime yet, I hope .

I also realised the other day that while addressing someone thus, I might just be blithely and unwittingly committing a faux pas as one often can't tell from the handle if it's a man or woman at the business end of your post.
Henceforth, I shall desist.

Tried to post querying number of female members (beside the 10 stated ones I counted), but it was quashed.

Au revs.

Stay away from the crop circles thing, though (joking).
Hahaha...good one! Gosh..you ad-guys sure have a witty side! Love it!
Crappy Houston weather indicates no riding for the next few days!! Rains & more rains. Next week looks good though.

Thanks . So how did it sound in person? I've never heard the R1 with these pipes except on Youtube. I see that one of the white Busas also has Two Brothers on it.

One ride of this back in 2005 and i was floored, in love with ninjas ever since. It was love at first ride. It was a perfect parsi owned example back then.
Was nice to see it after a long gap.
Isn't this the same 9R that used to roam on Carter rd?

Yes, the one with the registration # 9, belongs to someone in DPC now.
Btw, i discovered the two bros cans only once we reached manor, and forgot to give them attention on the ride back.
The quad laser exhaust on the bronze gixxer with the headlight cover sounds quite nice, a lot better than they sound on an R1.

You're lucky to have rain. Bangalore is frying us at the moment, and no respite in sight.

Heard that the temperature is close to 34 deg C. Its a beautiful day here,with a max temp of 22 degC,and a minimum of 10 degC. I rode my bike to work,and it was sheer bliss.

A friend of mine has been trying to get his Ninja 636 into B'lore,from Singapore. Need to find out if its been done.
