    It was magic

    The rpm's on cold engine are lower than that on heated one.
    Don't know anything about RE's though.
    Check again tomorrow and till then pyar to the Bull God to not be angry.

    Ride safe and have fun.
    Regards
    Nadeem

    Hi Vinith,

    Yes i agree. The stone black looks classy Glad to hear, it is doing good.
    Any idea about the OEM exhausts, that RE displayed in the auto expo ?

    Hi,

    I paid the full amount in DD yesterday and asked them to show me the bike before registration, so i can do the PDI. Today they let me see my "Night Fury"
    Yes. I call My TB500 the Night Fury, as my name says it. It is going to be my buddy for the years coming. No doubt about that. And the matte finish reminded me of the skin texture of Night fury from the movie "How to train your dragon". It can be cute and cuddly but also frighteningly fast and hard to tame. I know i need to grow up
    Here is a short video of Night fury from the movie.



    Today is the first day i saw TB 500 Stone black up close....... and............ I fell in love
    I test drove TB350 and Desert storm 500 but havent seen the TB500 stone black in flesh.

    I wanted to do the pdi.
    The sales person who accompanied me told, "Sir you dont have to worry about the quality issues and I am 200% sure about it, everything is checked already. Also it is from the new factory."
    I am not sure why did he say "checked already". Are they (RE) started doing Quality checks now ?
    He kick started the bike and showed me the electricals functioning. As it was 6 in the evening, I couldnt do the PDI as extensive as it has to be. But I was already kinda stoned after seeing the beauty. So i thought to myself, even if there is any issue I could fix it later. And the sales guy also told their team would take the whole responsibility if there is any issue.
    So I took a couple of pictures. The sales guy told I was not supposed to take pictures before delivery. So I apologized () , thanked and left the place dreaming..

    My concern is.. they have pasted a set of instruction on the tank. Which spoils the look of it. Did you guys peeled off the sticker ? did it leave any mark on the tank ?
    And a big thanks for all the Threads and posts by the RE TB 500 owners

    Keep an eye on all nuts and bolts for tightness and all chromed parts for rust/finishing issues.

    Sure, Im planning to get sealants for the matte finish and a polish for the chrome parts.

    Aw.., great to hear. So you have the elder brother Night fury huh
    Did you name it after the movie or for different reason ?

    Cheers

    Congratulations mate. Enjoy the thumping. There is a famous saying for RE - as soon as you kick an RE you get f****d for life.

    Enjoy the experience on the beast. The thought that Now I have to ride my TBTS still bring smile to my face whenever I leave home in the morning or whenever I leave office in the evening.

    And what sealant are you talking about?
