The only other Bandit I remember seeing here, is the one used in the movie 'Dhoom 2'. Sad part,is that its gathering a lot of dust somewhere in Bombay.

Nitin: Now, I remember, Sir. Someone had posted a picture- on Team-BHP - of that very bike gathering dust in a basement, and had explained its celluloid connection.

BTW do you reside in Mumbai? If you do, could I ask a favour?

Was kidding brother .
I was actually asked by someone at a signal on one of our Sunday rides, "yeh bike ko phoren ka registration nahi lagta kya?"
I gave the most sheepish smile till now to my friend who was riding along with me....he cannot get over that day & way I smiled at him ....we eventually had the best laugh ever, nice end to a nice ride.

Sad to see such bikes being neglected.I guess only the passionate few know the value of these rides.
OT:No Sir,I do not reside in Mumbai.My folks are in B'lore, and I live in Houston,TX.

Yes, it was the Dhoom bike and is apparently not in great shaope either.
Pictures of the same bandit posted somewhere back on this thread. But like netchef mentioned, it probably goes to a good 240 kmph, but that bikes does not howl.

Exactly.Thats the same bike.
The Bandit is an agile bike for sure.Anant Kamath (fellow BHP-ian in Ann Arbor) owns one,IIRC.

Nitin: Oh yes, I now recall your having told me, Sir. Sorry- forgot. Real pity coz I was thinking of requesting you to suss out a Kwacker for me for sale in the big city. Old but still seemed luscious. Also drills less into the wallet.

manson: Sir, I was reading up on some of those 'nakeds' including the B-King. Why oh why would someone want a detuned Busa engine after truckloads of genius Jap engineers burned the midnight oil to extract so much from it in the first place? Beats me.

Just because some 'wicked' folks like being different and then feeling all genius about regaining the lost power

IIRC - If I remember correctly.

manson: Ah. Takes all kinds of bikers for all sorts of chicanery?
Like Confucius say: Lucky the man who has a scratch for every itch.

IIRC - If I remember correctly. Thanks.

BTW how is your bike doing? Any more mods?

So true. In fact, any decent bike (old or new) thats not priced too high would be good. I can so pick up the urge to get back on a bike,Rajeev.(Hope I got your name right,Sir).

Err..I'm glad SRK wasn't in Dhoom. It has John Abraham, AB Jr, and a bunch of other people. Not bad at all!

Right-o! Ananth was in Ann Arbor,and I'm pretty sure he's still there. He's not been very active on the forum for a while now.
