Have been seeing things since many years. And personally know some of them as well. But what can one do other then asking them to be safe. The same situation exists here as well but just that not many superbike owners here are stunters so. Lets leave that at that.

Very desirable riding gear and bike. The owner looks like a skilled enthusiast is this the same person who track rides the 08 1000RR as well? Because I recognize the gear?

if I'm no wrong it drinks 3 liters oil.
and service cost would depend upon the mechanic from whom he gets it serviced,
because different people charge differently,
but approx it should be between 3k to 5k.

Very very interesting, seems like one hell of a dude man. He is got mad skills from the looks of the track pictures I've seen of him.

Any news on the Desmosedici RR I've been hearing too much chatter about it lately. It can only either three cities Mumbai, Pune or Bangy. But Mumbai would be a terrible choice because of the almost 70% concrete roads

If I am not mistaken, this bike sports Ahmednagar registration. It had come to me for accessories and we got a lot of stuff from Bangkok for the client. Also added disc brake in the rear and double discs in the front. Later, we sold the bike to someone from Bombay

I spotted what looked like a Harley to me. It had all the Harley accesories (Harley pouch behing the seat, handle bar with the fogs). The funny part it the echaust did not look Harley to me. Could someone clarify if it is the real deal or a BAJAJ turned Harley. A friend had done one long back, so i know its possible. Sorry for the bad quality pictures.Thank you

Absolutely!! That's makes all the difference.. My boss at work owns a Busa as well as a 1098.. just without the 'S' or the 'R'.
Damn! that's one neat ride and the rider as well.. leaves me craving.. :(
