Great Report Pranay. And such endurance. Maybe that is the fun of biking. It is sad that when you got the best road(Mysore-Blr) you were too tired for a blast. But the road is at your diposal. Early morning/late night ride to Mysore and Back can be the sole reason to own a superbike. Enjoy.

Lovely bike. What I really loved about your write-up was the fact that you seemed to know oyur limits very well and were not obsessed with speed and acceleration.

It's a pleasant change to see someone with a lot of uncommon common sense!

Secondly, wouldnt it have been eaiser to do the trip on your own? Just a thought... I pretty much hate having pillions while I read my Pulsar. With a superbike, I can just imagine how uncomfortable the pillion migt have been. Poor ironbutt!

So Pranay, how is the entire emotion of finding that first bike settling down?
I am glad that you have found what you had initially sought, and the bike 954 looks great in yellow with the coded gear.
Its good that you did not go nuts on your first ride, you already seem to have a fair idea what a wild child of a bike the 954 is and your log suggests how mature your entire approach has been.
Ride safe mate, keep the shining side up. Have fun.

manson.

p.s. For the uninitiated, this is the fourth 954 on the forum, and the first yellow one.
Thanks, manson. I have to emphasize that without your guidance, this would have been impossible.

For the forkseals and other consumables, eBay - The UK's Online Marketplace is your best friend.

manson.
Thanks there again. Those fittings sounds good. Slowly but surely..! I was wondering if the forkseals are available here. I guess not.

Thanks, princemanatt. I agree those roads are maybe the best place to ride sportsbikes, but I would be not be pushing the bike, I would rather grow into the comfort of riding at high speeds.

THanks, Nikhil. Yes, it would have been a lot easier without pillion, but the pillion insisted on being pillion. Besides, he has been with me through the entire process of me getting acquainted with superbikes, so I guess he really couldn't miss out on the fun part!
