                        Have you been visiting Orkut R15 communities..?? Since XBHP was down for almost a month, I used to frequent Orkut Communities.. including that of R15 ones.

                            No trouble yet!!

                            Well i dont know..didnt get any specific trouble yet..the bikes been going pretty well..infact got it serviced past weekend and took it to DND flyover adn hit a top wack of 141kmph..was expecting more..but traffic restricted the flying R15 .
                            the chain was making a wierd sound..the mechanic didnt lubricate it after washing..so immediatly got that done...
                            moreover the owner of the showroom told me that he'll be recieving customisation parts for the bike ..like end bar wieghts, LEDs, brake n clutch levers, swing arm spools...
                            two things that i asked him to arrange is the sports type main stand and knee sliders..without which theres lack of x-factor in the joy riding of the R15. Rest is cool..im more than satisfied with speedo maniac from yamaha
                            Just because you haven't seen it doesnt mean its impossible...expect the unexpected.
