Default Return of The Torque Monster.

I am very happy today. Finally after almost 7-months I have been able to get back my Yamaha MT01 today. It was a gr8 day with loads of downpour. As usual i was feeling elated to get back my most coveted machine. i would love to post some write-up, more pix & videos that i may like to attempt over the next few days after the rains give me a break.

i am very tired as i had to drive the bike for about 30kms in stop-go traffic ... Kind of a bumper to bumper all because of rain water accumulated on road. Riding thru knee deep water was like a cake walk as MT01 never fluttered. The silencers being so high never caused me any issue to wade thru water. BUT hey i do feel very tired of holding on to clutch & brake for a real long ride which usually take about 30-40minutes but today took almost 3hours

Watch this space for some exciting videos i am planning to shoot over the next few days hopefully

Sounds good. Hope everything works out just fine for you.
It can be a pain to drive in stop & go traffic. My wrists hurt real bad when I do that, so I usually end up riding only during the weekends when the traffic's easy.

Ummm.
Looks like you too aren't wearing the proper gear.
Please wear the proper gear and drive the bike.
Safety is very important.
With power comes responsibility.
Hope you understand.

Great bike.

Default Rising with the Sun & Riding with the GODS !

Hi ALL, Today was my First group ride with GODS & must say I was thrilled to the core.

The lazy Sunday morning silence broken by my mobile alarm clock at 5AM ! I was to gear up for my first Group Ride with GODS. As organized I reached The last Gurgaon Toll Plaza at 6AM to join other riders on way ... The ride was thrilling enough for me to break the laziness into a charged atmosphere ! The ride took off from Shiv Murti on NH8 till the u Turn of Rewari Junction. The ride was very organised with members riding Hondas, Busas, R1s & I on my MT01 ! There were few breaks on way to let group assemble & restart to break the fast at McD's ! After brief chit-chat & formal intros The group left for their places yet to meet on next Sunday ! I wont be able to detail the exhilarating experience as I am short on time now but must say I am left asking for more ...

have a look at the video link ...

Even if the bad time has passed its still inexcusable. Even rossiter faced a hell lot of issues with his bike. It all makes me feel is it worth spending so much money and buying from Yamaha India?

Still being patient Nothing wrong with the yamaha Products/machines its just their style of operation which needs to streamlined so as to not have such long waits for customers needing any level of repairs.
