Cool Yamaha R6 and Honda Fireblade in Mysore

I will post a few pictures of R6 and Fireblade in Mysore. Some Frenzy riders may know these bikes. Both the bikes belong to my friends in Mysore.

Here comes the R6:














Note: Mods, please feel free to move this elsewhere as you find suitable.

Fireblade follows......

Thanks Riju for those kind words

That is the ring road of Mysore, pretty well laid I should say - it is over a year old now.

Let us cut to the chase, I'll post the R1 pictures by tomorrow, will crop them up and keep them coming!

Wow - those are some Beauties. The other day I was in Moets in Defence Colony Delhi, and saw this guy on a R1.

Damn, I felt that urging pang to get me one of these, But now as I am not Single anymore - no one supports me in buying a Bike.

Hoping will do so oneday !!! Alas !!

Thanks Speedy

I thought of posting the pictures there, but these are more like my friends' bikes and I have good amount of photos. So I was wondering whether it comes under the 'spotted' category. That is also the reason why I have left a note for the mods. I will post the pictures here and the mods can move all this to that thread if required - however, I'd appreciate it if these pictures stayed in a separate thread as a good assortment.

Some pictures that I'd missed -

R6:





Fireblade:

the other thread not only has bikes that were spotted but ones own owned bikes. that includes friends bikes too.
i would let the mods decide weather they want to merge the threads or not.
i am enjoying the pictures and it looks like you guys were haveing great fun with them. one question what is the tyre life after doing burnouts i am sure it reduces tremendously. can you buy single tyres like only rear or do you have to buy the set

the blue R1 is a 96-97 mondel with a custom paint job. was in painted after puchase or ordered from the factory.
the black R1 is a 06-07 model. both look real nice. i love the black colour on the bike gives it a whole new definition.

Oh shucks! That was a typo - I meant to say that the R1 belonged to the same guy whose Fireblade pictures I've posted. Thanks for pointing it out!

And about the fun, yes, it is awesome hanging out with these guys. The burnout was done when the tyre was really old and needed a replacement, he had the new ones ready before he even thought of doing it
I have videos of the burnout too, but I'm not sure whether it would be appropriate to post the pictures or videos that involve risky activities. In case that is not permitted, I have erred enough.

And AFAIK, you can buy a single tyre.
