idea TheBlade : Honda CBR1000RR 2012 !




Hi folks,

Hadn't created this thread so far because things were still not certain.

Well, not anymore.

I was informed by Honda today that the purchase order is received and that they would begin the shipment process asap.

Any guesses on what the model is?

I had already wanted a SBK since I got access to the internet. I know many of you would say that it is of no utility, no value, etc, etc, etc. But one does not have control over what the heart wants right? I have been dreaming about this for longer than I can remember. One common theme of all those wet dreams was the Yamaha R1. I always thought that if I would ever go for a SBK, I would go for the ONE!

I guess the years caught up with me and made me reconsider my decision. After reading through numerous blogs, reviews, etc. I decided upon the CBR1000RR 2012 edition. Its one of the most well revered street bikes and the most rideable in Indian conditions. Some people blame it for the lack of character or what not, but I believe it will suit me just fine.

It is still not in my hands, and therefore, I am reserving a few posts below to post photos and videos once I have the baby in my hand.
This has been a long time coming, and I am happy that I have taken the step.

Meanwhile, wanna help me purchase some riding gear so that I can keep myself, and my wifey safe when riding?

Huzzah!

Oh, if I will tell you, I will have to kill Manish Da (don't ask me why)

Its exactly that feeling that I have been wanting all this time. I don't plan/intend on riding this thing fast. I am content with 100 kmph. How I get there, well, that is another matter...

Of course, you all get a test ride... provided you are ready for the

I really did think about it. But when I found out about Harrison Ford and his biking in raiders of the lost ark, I gave up on that idea.
