Thanks for the headsup bud. It runs quite well
To be honest, in the excitement I may have overlooked a thing or two, but nothing that some tender, love & care cannot fix.

Always up for ride, but give me a couple of weeks to get a hang on the blade.

Yup, a lot more compact than the Thunderace and surprsingly comfortable for the track tool potential this bike has. Though I do miss the high speed stability of the Thunderace, that feeling is almost extinct now between the sportbikes of today unless ofcourse you're riding the Busa or a ZX14.

looks well kept and clean and with the clean papers assurance its a good buy.
congratulations and ride safe.
Oiee thank you!
I had almost the same thoughts when my R.T.O. agent called to tell me the papers were perfect. Believe it or not, I spent more time ensuring the papers were in good shape than the motorcycle itself.

Change of brand, change of colour and change of model year. Change is the only constant.

Congrats, manson for moving on and up!

Ride safe and do keep posting your experiences as you did with your virgin superbike experience (or was it?).

Yup, that was my maiden Superbike experience. The experiences will continue, the learning curve keeps leaning with the more you know.

Updates

All three pairs of brake pads changed to EBC Double H Stintered pads.
Sportech V-Flow Red Chrome windscreen (would indoor pictures suffice for now?)
And, spent a good part of today alongwith Anku at Car Spa, Inorbit Vashi getting the 954 twins a wax and polish job.

Congrats dude

The 954 is a killer bike.

Btw I am surprised to know that the Thunderace is more stable than the rr. I thought being a newer bike it must be better??
