Yea i did get a preview of that on two occasions.

I kept looking for other bikers of the gang but could not find anyone, I took the Panvel road, and as soon as I passed the city I started ripping the 954.It handled like a dream. . I kept going & looking for others but could not see any one of them, & I soon started believing that these guys must have stormed away to lonavala. I reached Kamats to find no one

This was like one of your earlier rides. Remember you told us once. Similar thing.

@Danlalan.. I think you need to come with me on that machine to really know how it feels ( It will be very hard for you to hang on but if you do you will have a ride of your lifetime). It was awesome.

No way man! iam never coming.its scary. Abhi tells me everytime.
Also its no fun for the rider then.


I wish we could video tape our rides someday.

Possible. Someone will have to come in their car

Reply is given in the quote itself. Mods.

Abhijeet, it does not matter what you ride as long as you ride with a helmet, and preferably some more safety gear.
We will be riding again in a week or two, just drop one of us a pm with your phone number, and you'll be informed the next time we intend to headout.
Btw, is yours a blue zzr400? I think we've met before.

manson.

Don't you see the Karizma's in those pics? Why wouldn't a 400 be allowed?

hey.. i always ride with a helmet. i've "pm"ed u my number so pls keep me updated with the details.

i never had a zzr400 this is my first 4 pot bike i had a blue rd though (did that confuse you?). well its a old gpz. planing to switch over to something more faster in the 400 or 600 class. (let me know if there is anything good that anyone knows of which is going for cheap). have tried my friends bikes like the busa and 1000rr but not for too long.

@abhijeetveer, thats not a fair statement. If my RD was in those pics (which it was meant to be but...), I would have been really annoyed with your statement. Any & every bikes are welcome. Even luna though that would be a really lonely ride

But Karizma, Pulsar & for sure RDs are not far behind at all. Plus its not a race, its a ride with a few bursts of speed so chill & come with your 400 next time.

It was a great ride,
saturday evening when abhi told me about the sunday ride, i did not have the slightest of an idea who all are in for it.
But to my surprise the next day morning the turn out was a different one.
Mine was the smallest bike in the group.
But the hesitation stopped right there, thanks to the fellow riders.
And yeah like abhi, can you please play catching up with me too?

@Abhijeetveer.
Dude we had 2 zma's, a pulsar 180 & A RD with us on the ride, I really dont remember a time when we had to wait for them during re-grouping. It's true that they were all good riders which is required to keep up with higher capacity bikes. Apart of few high speed bursts, all the super bikers were at comfortable speeds throughout. So no matter which bike you have as far as it is more than 150 cc ( coz i think atleast this much may be required ) & in a good mechanical state you will surely enjoy the ride, though you will have to keep your tacho needle post 7k mark.

@ Balenopower & doctorque..
I am sorry for not being able to ride with you guys, I tried a couple of times but could not stop my self from opening the throttle. I am sure you will understand.

Thanks.

@Danlalan.. So what if it wont be fun riding the bike with a pillion, It is priceless to see a friend smiling with joy or in some cases "****ting bricks in the pant" face in the RVM.

No baba, when i saw you guys turn right, it seemed you'll were turning around to come back to the Uran road, so i slowed down to 60-80 kmph right till the end of the bypass, infact even Palm Beach i took quite peacefully, i was really tired, with an aching neck, wanted to get home asap, and the heat was on the rise.
Apologies for not waiting up to regroup and bidding goodbye.
Look forward to the next one.

Actually when we stopped at that junction, half of us thought we had to take that right turn so we took some time to decide & we were also thinking that you might take a u turn & come back but then we realized that we had waited for quite some time & came behind you.. And hey that's ok if you dint wait for bidding goodbye , we can keep the aavjo tata for the next ride..
