Very hot, I agree. That little touch of red does wonders, doesn't it?
What sort of light emanates from that smoked glass- if it is one?

That white gixxer is from Mumbai and belongs to a friend of mine and Fireblader. It is one of the loudest bikes around

The white gixxer belongs to Stuart. Pictures seem to have been taken at Carter road.

Here's my buddy's Honda VTX 1800.

Manish, its good to see people buying Triumphs. A much better choice then buying Ducati's for being "exclusive".

the owner was very kind and also allowed us see his other collection which included duke and a few dirt bikes.
not to forget the 2 porsches one being 911 turbo and the other being cayenne turbo.

he was a very nice person.

You mean the KTMs and the green Turbo, right?

Fabia is lovely but not my daily drive- it's meant for the folks. I'm going to need something. Maybe a broom

Best I did on the Blade was 240 kmph for 1/2 a second. While I was basking in the aftermath of that achievement, couple of senior riders piped up: they did 290 on the same stretch. And held the speed for a fair distance. This was on the NICE road tangential to the Mysore road.
You are right, the Mysore road is daft. People come at you from all sides, and definitely where you least expect it.
However, the Mysore road is the lesser of all evils: we've tried the Hassan road and couple of others like the Kolar road, but they're far riskier since they aren't divided carriageways. It takes the mickey out of the less experienced guys like me concentrating on the new variables that have suddenly grown exponentially.

The Gixxers with sports cans are LOUD! Couple of chaps in our gang made REAL music. Tinny, rambunctious screaming Banzais, ...but sheer delight.

Ah there you are Sir. You'd posted a comment on my gallery and I didn't know where to find you.
Yes, had to sell my Blade. Most sad at the thought of being without her now.
