    Should be a great option for people with serious touring future. Music and Video playback is a great addition to the list!

    Guys, I was thinking that nowadays, many companies target "bikers" in their promo's - like Fastrack, Orazo, Mapmyindia, Gillette, etc.

    Are we Indian bikers a real easy target?
    Do companies really find high demand for their products, just by relating it to bikes/ bikers? This has become a trend.

    If the pic shown by Monty is correct, then how do they intend to plonk it on a bike....
    Atleast a RAM mount would have been good.... I have been hunting for a cheap RAM mount (locally) for ages now!

    Nice. Would be very useful. But at Rs.19,000 it is really really expensive. I would think about 10-12K is the sweet spot.

    EDIT : Second thought, with FM transmitter and music playback functions make it more VFM, but still a tad expensive.

    I dont know whether this news has been shared earlier, but here goes..

Aimed at motorbiking enthusiasts and groups, TrailBlazer is loaded with maps of 620 cities and is the most accurate guide for any biking trip anywhere in India.

    Advice is a form of nostalgia.
    Dispensing it is a way of fishing the past from the disposal, wiping it off, painting over the ugly parts and recycling it for more than it's worth.
