The last pic where people are checking out the Intruder and the Busa, both belong to my friend. I wonder who he gives the Busa to. Maybe Vijay can tell us.

The Thane guys also have everything you can think of. There is a guy amongst them who rides a Busa like an RX in the corners.

The kid rides a Yamaha PW80 (obviously not with this pack!).

I believe it is a brother/cousin who rides with him. They switch bikes on the return.

Ah. The Intruder will soon get a windshield. He called me saying he finds it very uncomfortable to ride above 120.

I did ask him how he managed - with great difficulty was the answer. Plus he is quite slender. On my hornet with the bikini fairing I have issues. You need significant arms to hold on at high speeds.

Am i missing something? Besides the two 08 blades, the occasional triumph & maybe the 12R i do not see much difference between those lineups. And, the pictures steer has posted are from more than a few weekends ago, so by now there possibly are 08 blades already in the bangalore circles too.

Anyways, are we on for sunday? The Yamaha is back, tuned quite well, can't wait to roll it open!

Come to think of it, yes you're right.

And about 4 Busas on that day, if I'm not mistaken - I have 3 of them in pictures and one came in later.

That ride is dominated by R1's though. Its funny how no one puts after market exhausts on R1's.
