This is the kind of review I enjoy. I’ve lived with the bike for almost 3 years, done more than 50,000 kms on it. I know it, I know its after sale service and support, I know how it feels on every different kind of surface, I know what it would do before it does.… Read More »

The 7 different phases of my riding life

Yesterday’s article brought back memories of how my riding life started. Over the decade that I’ve spent with motorcycles, my purpose with them and my behavior towards them has changed dramatically.
