I would love to join a long ride, we should try for the IBA on the busa something like Kashmir to kayakumari am game anytime. Am currently saving up for a MT01 to do a Len-Ladakh trip on a big bike do let me know your thoughts.
I am a hardcore SuperBiker and do not believe in the Maxim of "Ride on the weekends"
I get out at every possible opportunity to ride Despoine and even use it for my work in the gruelling Mumbai traffic
The sheer grunt of the 1340 engine with the Two Brothers roaring away to glory is enough to charge me up for the day

By the way, Despoine got a RockStar makeover

I would also like to do a Leh ladakh trip
Need to work out the logistics and which bike
lets connect soon

Here is a recent pic of Despoine

The Hayabusa has a Dual Throttle Valve fuel injection system with dual 12-hole, fine-spray injectors per cylinder i.e. primary and secondary fuel injector set-up. A mode both injectors are 100% active, B mode 50% primary and 100% secondary injector and C mode has 100 % secondary injector. As quoted by Suzuki.

I can not agree enough, Hayabusa is still the best way to recharge myself.

I have seen you bike in person when I was in Mumbai few months back very shortly after you had posted the rock star make over, unfortunately by the time cousin stopped you were already away. The quality of the work is excellent and gives the bike that amazing unique look.

Ram, your Despoine is looking really superb in the Rockstar Makeover. Totally changed her appearance.

Harish, firstly, well written narrative, enjoyed reading it. Secondly congratulations on the beauty and may I say it is refreshing to see a different colour from the usual Blacks & Whites that I have been seeing all the time. (No offence Ram, just my personal preferences!). Any issues faced so far riding a non KA registered bike in Bangalore?

I agree with your decision in replacing the horn. Most of the SBK bike horns are really pathetic since they are designed to stay within international norms and just dont do the job in a country such as ours. Especially so when you need to make your presence known to totally chaotic and noisy traffic around you.

In my opinion, in our country a good loud Horn and strong powerful headlights play a major part in riding safety on road therefore priority to these upgrades should be higher than cosmetic ones for any new SBK owner.

Happy and safe riding guys.

I have been stopped few time but mostly let go after I walked up to the inspector and requested him to see the bike, explained its an import. I have even taken few of the cops from Jeevan Bhima nagar for a ride once till the telephone exchange. Did it as was fed up getting stopped everyday while returning home at 9pm-10pm.

The funniest was when one guy just did not want to let me go and insisted the saree guard is a must at gangamma circle near air force station. Lucky was carry the Ipad in the bag i open the Karnataka MV act and showed him the clause stating its applicable for bike upto 1000cc.

From a road tax perspective I paid it for 1 year in April 13, this is because legally you can use the bike without paying road tax for a year provided you can prove it you were here from a particular date (always carry the transport bill from the packer for this).

I love to read superbike touring triplogs. Good to see many SBKers using bikes to go to places .

Congratulations on the bike and for having a good time with the bike during the ride. Next time when you decide to come to hyderabad, Do give me a buzz.

I had managed to overtake him, looks like the sales man at Audi misinformed him that his car was the fastest thing on India roads. Instead of giving way he kept pushing harder. Frustrated, I changed on to A mode to overtake him.
Dear Harish,

Awesome ride brother. I am also a hayabusa fan and I really agree with your kerb weight explanation for busa. After all its ain't a track bike, its a beast made for ruling the streets. I am also happy with the above incident of A6 you mentioned. All the four wheelers take two wheelers for granted and you hopefully taught him its not the case. Hope he will never dare to mess around with any superbikes.

I don't know about the stretch of roads at your place, but its bad at our place. So drive safe.


Cheers

One thing for sure am never going to dare another stunt like that ever, I had lost my cool (which is not good especially on a SBK ) because he was driving in the middle of the highway blocking both the lane and refusing to give way. I will be more care full not to pick up others garbage and risk myself.

Looking good. Touring on the hayabusa is always a joy. I noticed your bike is Moga ( punjab) registered. I think i ve seen this bike in the vicinity. Anyhow , the hayabusa is made for touring and is specially a pleasure when the roads are well carpeted.I tour alot myself and always look forward to reading travelogues off fellow bikers. Ride far , ride safe !
