                  Few points:

                  1)the red cover looks much better in real than a picture uploaded here

                  2)the alien head somewhat disproportionate

                  3)panic breaking article--simple,technical & brilliant

                  4)spiti & OF a decade ago look the same i.e. serene,rugged & beautiful at the same time (barring the fact that OF sir has now a bigger paunch 10 years down the line)

                  5)Ducatis-multistrada,monster or the evo--hogging the limelight --Rightly so -- super pics & maharashtra inwards journey a favorite

                  6)Xphotos are different in these mag & cover unknown territory -- superliked the "maut ka kua" one

                  7)Finally --touring log by my touring partner (MG's writing skills are improving )

                  Edit:I missed seeing my own review of the monster

                    Some Feedback:

                    1. The text size for the columns is TOO SMALL! (I loved Shamik's column by the way...struck a chord!)

                    2. The contrast used for the text in some sections of the magazine (especially the photography section) makes it very difficult to read.

                    3. OF's submission on "Braking" was absolutely absorbing and educative. I hope some of the Mumbai riders who were adamant about stopping with the rear brakes alone will see this article and adopt the practice of braking with both F/R brakes.

                    4. The Multistrada looks astonishing and somehow "fits" with the Indian backdrop

                    5. Shillong Xbhp crew - you guys ROCK!! Deep respect...

                    6. Sunny/Sandeep and co - you have a hard job eclipsing this episide with the next one. I don't envy you ONE BIT

                        This, John said himself in the interview, but not for this issue !

                        The alien's got a big brain + that hair is too long, I will let him know that!

                        3)panic breaking article--simple,technical & brilliant

                        All hail OF!

                        I didnt hear that, what was that again?

                        5)Ducatis-multistrada,monster or the evo--hogging the limelight --Rightly so -- super pics & maharashtra inwards journey a favorite

                        Thanks to Manan for being the model in most of the pics!

                        6)Xphotos are different in these mag & cover unknown territory -- superliked the "maut ka kua" one

                        Thats Malkiat Singh for you, OF's friend and an ace photographer specializing in Sikhism.

                        7)Finally --touring log by my touring partner (MG's writing skills are improving )

                        Ah!

                        Edit:I missed seeing my own review of the monster
                        I am sorry, forgot to tell you that! We had to remove it due to space constraints! In fact we were 25 pages over our 200 page limit this time and we had to cut many thing!

                        Yo! I hear you! We wanted to fit in each HT in a single page, hence that desperate measure. But its is not as small as you might have people thinking bro! . Maybe relatively, since you are BIG!

                        2. The contrast used for the text in some sections of the magazine (especially the photography section) makes it very difficult to read.

                        The photography section had this intentionally going on bro, so as to not to take away the eyes from the photo in the first absorbing glance.

                        3. OF's submission on "Braking" was absolutely absorbing and educative. I hope some of the Mumbai riders who were adamant about stopping with the rear brakes alone will see this article and adopt the practice of braking with both F/R brakes.

                          Sunil

                          Got the book on hand yesterday, completely read through from the 1st page to the last....awesome

                          Wonderful print quality...

                          Chennai part is missing in the Ducati ride

                          Lot of repetition in the price and the gears, especially the Videocon Handset

                          Otherwise VFM...can u guys add a poster with each edition with a SBK

                          National Geographic ?? insert from XBHP??
                          Never Give up on something that you can't go a day without thinking about.

                            Sunny - I am still waiting for that LEGENDARY DVD with the raw video footage (uncensored). I am sure you'll want to save the photography for a coffee-table book but let us have those Videos please.

                            I wish I could have recorded the sight of you going balls to the wall on the MT-01 and shared it here.

                            Let us in on the action...
