I don't know about being termed a biker or whatever. Anyone who rides a bike is a biker! I just love riding and looking after these bikes.

Scooby? You and ride on the bike! You're wife and daughter will kill me!!!

Yea man sold it few months back. 1300$ in speeding tickets and 2 defensive driving programs later no insurance company would insure me for a price less than the motorcycles cost itself. it'd cost me more to insure than how much i'd bought the bike for. so i took it easy. i'm moving now to illinois and next spring is replacement time bay-beh all these travelogues inspire me to speed up to re-acquire !

Fantastic thread & travelogue Robin, guess my guess wasn't off the mark! Wonderful bike & hope to see it on my next trip to Mumbai!

Congratulations once again & nice to see you with a bike again, after you sold the ZZR it felt a little weird to see the Uber-biker of the forum without a bike

Aah ... I must say you are one lucky guy. Thats a true gem, you are going to love it. The whine of the V4, and the rattling of cams will keep your heart pounding for a long time after every ride. I am sure you will enjoy putting long miles on this mean machine.
Congrats on the new acquisition.

Congratulations, ghasee peesee ne vaperje. With such a chequered parsee connection, that bike should be named Viraf, not Viff

Brilliant write-up !! And not to mention, a superb bike.

You basically lived out my dream . I hope I can do something like this in my life before I am too old .

How much did the bike cost you anyway ? I am just curious.
