Default 6 Months later...

Today i took the test ride of my fixed MT01 ! It was a glorious moment for me. It is almost after 6months I heard the Torque Monster Roar ! I sat & I fired the engine switch & lo the monster started rolling & spitting thunder on the road. The rumble was loud enough to be heard from a far flung distance !

I could feel the adrenaline level shooting up. My heart almost pounced out when i throttled to accelerate the monster in motion. I felt the gush of wind brush past my face. Feeling thrilled like a kid; rode it for about 10-15 kms & felt most exhilarating feeling of the day !

I am now waiting to clear few formalities to take the delivery & Hope to write more & post a dozen of pix that i plan to shoot around the town to announce the rerun of MY Torque Monster

Anything you regret with the fixing? Is the power really the same as the new one?

Its just the same. Very Fresh & NEW ! Almost all the outer covers have been changed along with TANK ! I rode it & felt its rumble just as the new one. Actually mostly was cosmetic repair work .

YEah Official repairs for my officially Yamaha India P L imported & sold MT01 Delhi Scooters Zindabad ! perhaps thats why all the procurement of parts thru official channel took most of the waiting time.

But why do u ask so :(

Riding down the highway might be a very hot soup to consume now cox dear family might not be willing to hear that from me.Will surely PM you whenever I am in D'doon next time. Delhi has its share of showers right thru the day today so its becoming very pleasant now.

PS. harley handle bar is still on some waiting Harley Bike, may be one day i lay my hands on it too along with full bike
