idea Re: 1001 KM + 19 Days + 1000 Cc : Holy Mother of Fireblade!

So folks, as promised, a little update on my SBK adventure.
I have now inching close to the 1200 km mark (can't believe I have driven so much in so less time) and my first service is due tomorrow (HMSI has sent the engineer to Bangalore and he is making a home visit tomorrow.)



Overall a very positive experience. Right from going to the super market for grocery shopping to fulfilling duties of PPS (Patidev Pickup Service; a term which my lovely wife coined); the bike is doing really well. I mean, who would not love to be picked up from work on a SBK, right?

But I had a horrible experience 3 days ago. As a result of a bus strike in Bangalore, my wife was having trouble getting a ride back home (to Koramangala) from her office in ITPL. Being the gentleman that I am, I volunteered PPS to which she gleefully agreed.

What ensued was torture worse than water boarding.

The distance was 18 km one way, through some very narrow roads. I was hoping that by starting relatively early, I would be able to beat the traffic. But that is not what god had planned for me that day.

I had to make my way across 9 grid locks, 12 situations with a guy trying to take a illegal u turn from the left side of the road thus blocking the entire traffic, 25 signals (I didn't get a green pass on any one of them) while making the journey back and forth. The return trip was even more arduous as I had to balance my wife (55 kg) on my bike while twiddling the throttle on 1st gear with the clutch pressed in 70%. The heat being given off the bike was incredible. On top of that, I didn't wear my normal riding jeans and instead went with gym trunks which did an awefull job of shielding my legs from the sheer heat.

The 36 km distance took close to 3 hrs to cover and I had burned through almost 5 lt of petrol (I was expecting it to be close to 10 lt; but thank god.)

Needless to say, a big lesson learnt. A SBK was simply never meant to do this. Thank god it was a CBR instead of a R1. Otherwise my wife would have a very bad time on the return trip because of the under seat exhaust. And the additional weight of the R1 would have made my nightmare even more livid. I will stick to my skirt for such fun adventures from now on.

Oh and, I made a video last night just before I started the cleaning. Sorry for all the dirt; I had ridden the bike during rains to test its ability to keep a grip the night before and it got really muddy at times.


So far I had been afraid to rev the bike so high as I was afraid something might simply break. But the bike's character has dramatically changed now. It is very very rev happy and the vibes which I used to notice earlier during revving are no longer there. Please listen to this on a good sound system (with large speakers capable of reproducing low frequencies.) Sorry, your phones don't count. Enjoy

No wonder CBR is the most practical SBK , still its not designed to cope up with the horrendous Indian metro traffic .

Re: 1001 KM + 19 Days + 1000 Cc : Holy Mother of Fireblade!

Brilliant write-up. Read every word. Loved the below paragraph. I have had folks telling me that I could have bought a Nano with the money I spent on the CBR250R

I am tired of being told to go through the motions in life and to play the constant game of appreciation and depreciation. I am 28 now. In 2 years I might have a 3rd member in my family. In 22 years I will be 50. I want to live a life which has more check marks filled in rather than just against "How many houses bought?" "Big bank balance" Some people are very satisfied doing just that. I am not one of them. If I was, I would not have started my own forum too

And I will think of a car when the Ferrari is within my reach. Till then my Skirt will serve the purpose.

Your words have made me start a RD at my bank. Earlier was thinking of buying the new MBP but now that money has been saved and put away in an FD and regular deposits in the RD are underway. Though my goal is not that high. Looking to save enough for the Ducati Monster 795.
I always thought i would end up buying a Harley since i had personally only driven my Bullet. But a recent experience on the Apache RTR has broadened my horizon. I was able to take the Apache to 120 on just my second day on the bike.
Fingers crossed hoping i am able to hold on till the funds are saved and don't go around splurging on some other toys.

Though I read it earlier but by the time I got to the end was feeling exhausted due to the medicines I believe so didnt post.

Just wanted to mention, what an awesome writeup Karan. I hope you start doing that for Review samples too,
