Default Chennai General Discussion Thread

Hey Guys !

Thought a seperate thread for general discussions for the Chennai group made more sense than our Hi's and Bye's on the meet section....

Mods, if u feel that this needs to be moved to a more appropriate thread, do feel free to do so.....

Cheers,

J

Man, I like the looks of the freeflow. Guess it sounds great as well. But somehow, the colour doesnt inspire me. Should have been red or yellow

Like RD fanatics, i've met a lot of Gypsy fanatics who'll swear by them anyday.

I dont understand how the dude manages to steer with those BIG A$$ tyres! :(

well, on the straights, it might be good with these tyres, but unless sme serious mods are done to the suspension and steering, dont you think the handling will get affected?

That looks like a 1.0 litre gypsy. In which case, with those tyres, it will struggle to get moving!

Hi

There clearly is no need for a city-specific discussion thread on Team-BHP.

This thread is closed.
