hehe. Actually, it has been asked. And I have answered it in a not so straight forward way You'll have to pick up the clues and guess that one!
Come on Robin.. Guys like you are the only indication dreamers like us have to know whats a good price for a good bike.

Plus . I could not find a single clue ..so forget putting the pieces together. Pretty Pretty please? Atleast PM those who have been persisting.

I have noticed this trend only in India, people dont want to put down the prices, i mean how does it matter and by telling the price whats gonna happen anyways, another indian mentality, never want to disclose the price as if its some secret purchase from NASA for nukes.

No offense my 50 cents.

@bunny: nope, no pillion with me. Another red vfr you say? hmm. Are you sure it was a VFR?

@busa: I've also notice a trend predominantly in 19 year old these days. God seems to have blessed them with more than the usual number of excretory opening's. Oh yea. No offense. Just my 0.50 paisa.

I don't get the obsession with price. even the only two questions I get asked on the road are "mileage kya hai" and "price kya hai". Are these the only two things Indian's think off?

Also the nerve to start thread/create a garage with NO pics even after multiple requests from some members.

Robin - your passion and joy have come shining at me out of every well written word on this thread. I can see your bushy eyebrows and glittering eyes as you wrote that with glee.

You have my heartiest congratulations on a wonderful bike. Red is a beautiful colour and she is a beautiful bike.

This thread deserves every one of the 5 stars I voted for and more. Thanks for a lovely read.

Well said Robin! Whether you choose to reveal something about your latest acquisition is purely your concern & I think that should remain that way.
