Took Delivery of my bike!!!!

I took delivery of my bike today!!! I couldn't take my eyes of her. Took it for a test ride before actually taking delivery, to ensure brake etc. was OK. Everything was just perfect and the ride was butter smooth.

Took it to the nearby Ganesha temple in the evening and did pooja. (The gurukal said "yagnyopavitham mandram" also in-between..... don't understand why??? ) He probably would have thought I wouldn't be knowing even ABC of madiram (from my looks!!!) or it is actually part of the rituals to vehicles in Karnataka.

Anyways!!! completed all rituals and took my wife for a big ride around Bangalore. Had dinner outside and came back!!!

I will write the dinner part separately in my next post!!! Please see the photos of my bike below. I know it is almost like part by part description....who cares..... I am just crazy about it now !!!

P.S. Please click of the individual images to see the enlarged view.....

My New Suzuki GS150R

After much of deliberation, research, discussions... I have booked my first bike, the New Suzuki GS150R - It did drive me crazy!!!!!

It is stylish of the lot and highly composite for a normal public. Its design is muscular, instantly attractive and it has a good built. I almost fell in love with it at the first sight itself !!!!!

The wolf-eyed headlight, the muscular fuel tank, its unique 6 gear transmission (with 1st down and rest 5 up shift pattern), the new digital speedo meter with gear indicator, the butter smooth ride are the catching features of this bike.

Fell in love for the second time when I took it for a test drive......

I chose the Pearl Nebular Black.

More on this, with actual photos and details after I take delivery of the bike today. Stay Tuned!!!!!
