    Default The Big Bang R1 is here.!

    Finally the day has come. I mean who here wouldn't have dreamt of owning a superbike themselves one day. As it turns out it took me only about 10-12 years of dreams and hopes and hard work to make this a reality. Not to mention this has been made possible also due to the help and support of a few of my close friends who as it turns out to have come into my life through Xbhp Kerala itself.

    So let me introduce to you all my very first superbike the 2013 Yamaha R1 WGP 50th Anniversary edition(1810/2000).




    Now, this is a pre-owned worshipped bike, this bike was owned by a fellow Xbhpian from Trivandrum, he had placed an order for the bike back in 2013 and had been enjoying it ever since up until now that he decided to sell it.
    Now as far as the bike goes, since the bike belonged to a friend, pretty much reasonable kms clocked, complete service history is known, work done on the bike is known and it is such a clean bike and a dream bike that letting the opportunity slip by without even attempting it would have been a shame and try I did, and a few weeks later I have it in my garage.
    The R1 is in good company as it shares bikes with my long term garage partner CBR250R and a recently acquired brand new Triumph Tiger 800 XRX(Belongs to my brother).







    I'd like to think that I have always somehow managed to have a pretty interesting garage throughout the years. Over time we have had the pleasure of owning the

    Bajaj Pulsar 220F
    Honda CBR250R*
    KTM Duke 390(First gen)
    Yamaha R3
    Triumph Tiger 800 XRX*
    Yamaha R1 WGP Edition*

    Not a shabby list to have had I guess.










    I'll be posting the write up the experience I had right from the TD to the point of taking ownership of the bike and also documents the mods and some refresh work(purely cosmetic) that the bike needs.So far I have put on around 900kms on the bike since i got it. Which was just under a week back.
    I'll be posting them soon as I manage to scrape more time to make these posts. Until then I hope you guys will enjoy a few pics of the beauty.

    Cheers
    Ride Safe

    It'd be an understatement to say how ecstatic and happy I am to know that you've done this Krish. Just super happy to see the madness all draped up as the Anniversary Edition.

    I can't wait for more pictures, ride experience, et al.

    Cheers!

    Once upon a time, a guy asked a girl 'Will you marry me?'
    The girl said, 'NO!'


    And the guy lived happily ever after and rode motorcycles and watched sport on a big screen TV, went fishing and surfing, and played golf a lot, and drank beer and scotch and had tons of money in the bank and left the toilet seat up and farted whenever he wanted.


    THE END

    Thanks Sparky for the kind words, Quite a few have already called dibs on this, i guess the R1 invokes an emotion in many of us enthusiasts that not many other bikes does. That makes it all the more special to own .
