    Topic HAPPILY Approved.

    My gosh! This is tremendous. I am sure you must be feeling on top of this entire Universe. Those 2,200 bucks left in your bank account wouldn't really bother you for some more time,atleast, trust me!

    Man, we have yet another legal R1 owner joining xBhp. Great! SIMPLY GREAT. Ofcourse I cannot even fathom the kind of emotions that must be running through your mind before, during and after the delivery of one of the most dreamt about machines in this world - the 'One!

    I just hope my dreams of owning an R1 comes true sooner rather than later. And yes, ofcourse a BIG, HEARTY congratulations for owning what has and will always be a dream machine for many a hearts!

    P.S: Please do share your riding experience of the R1 here, would love to know how things progressed and how things are progressing in the future. Thanks a ton for sharing it all, with us.

    ENJOY and ofcourse ride safe and sound my friend. You have immense power under your control now! Respect is all it wants.

    LOL.I was grinning when I saw the pic of the R1 in the box. I was expecting that Yamaha would be delivering it on a bed of swan's feathers.
    A very hearty congrats for the purchase.

    P.S.: I have the same R1 indicators on my Yamaha too.

    I was at the service center getting my FZ checked by a mech there when i saw this box and i was like whoa man, a box packed R1. For all my life i've seen someone own it or take a delivery. never seen it sitting all packed ready to be unveiled to be the object of affection of some lucky (and in this case worked his a** off) owner to be.

    I completely agree with you Aryan. On the contrary i am scared of those 180 odd horses. It definitely commands respect.

    Secondly pls don thank me for sharing, i myself have been party to so many travelogues,first impressions, workshops, rider experience etc over the years that I owed it to xbhp.

    You are right, i cannot put those emotions in words. It was out of this world. All i remember now is i had ear to ear smile all the time.
