    THANKS XBHP!!

    Accepting my travelogue and printing it was the cake, but the way you guys have presented and printed it is the icing and the cherries on the cake.
    I haven't got a chance to read a single page as yet. Will post again when I read another awesome issue.

    Special thanks to Sunilg.

    And it was sad and funny to see that xbhp 3rd issue was on sale in landmark last week which is close to 6 mths old. Requesting you to look in the same for pune xbhpians.

    thats really strange Shrinath, but I guess it was fault on the part of the Landmark staff to put the 3rd issue on sale, even though they are not supposed to destroy the old unsold copies.

    Vijender is in Mumbai/Pune right now, overseeing the release of the magazine. I will soon update the details of the stores where the mag is available.

    Here is my two cents of feedback


    + For the first time I really liked the editorial. It spoke about many things and not just how great xbhp is!
    + OF’s HT was a good read as always. I completely agree about the brain (intelligence) being the best protective gear. Coincidentally same thing said by Sunny and OF
    + The MST downunder and the 1000RR trips were a visual treat and nicely written as well.
    + Sunny seems to have an almost childish fascination for the gull wing doors of the Merc. As a kid even I drooled over pics of any car with these!
    + I have started looking forward to the MAX section by OF. Fault no 10 is by far the most important. Funnily in the illustration all the accidents are depicted by a P220
    + Good to know that the team members had a chance to chill in the hills. Again nicely written.
    + Sunilji’s HT is good this time. I agree with the horrible mentality of people out here. And no amount of laws can change people’s mentality.
    + Very well written by Andrew James. Though some text is missing between page 135-136.
    + Awesome HT by Noor. Really liked it. I intend to keep my 220 till my dying day as well! Though I will quote OF’s signature “I don’t let motorcycles get in the way of my motorcycling”.
    + I love asterix and was happy to see the comparison made to those banquets in the Gramisch Motorrad.
    + The number of typos and grammatical mistakes has reduced drastically from the last issue. Good job!

    - The magazine has been reduced from 200 pages to 175.
    - Ken cool’s review has been posted on the forum a long time back and to see it being printed now is not very heartening.
    - The questions in the Tete a tete are too static. Make it a little more dynamic please.
    - The last para on page 68 repeated on page 70 as well.
    - First para on page 90 repeated on page 92.
    - Haroon Rafiq’s travelogue was a big letdown, considering he is an author I expected better language.


    Cheers

    Thanks, Avinash, for the review, i am appending my replies in red after yours below.

    It was not how 'great', but actually how 'different'

    + OF’s HT was a good read as always. I completely agree about the brain (intelligence) being the best protective gear. Coincidentally same thing said by Sunny and OF

    + The MST downunder and the 1000RR trips were a visual treat and nicely written as well.

    Thank you

    + Sunny seems to have an almost childish fascination for the gull wing doors of the Merc. As a kid even I drooled over pics of any car with these!

    If there is no child in oneself, then you are half dead already, is what I believe. . Also the only reason why the sls became an icon is because of the gullwing doors. Your comment was taken as a complement.

    + I have started looking forward to the MAX section by OF. Fault no 10 is by far the most important. Funnily in the illustration all the accidents are depicted by a P220

    + Good to know that the team members had a chance to chill in the hills. Again nicely written.
    + Sunilji’s HT is good this time. I agree with the horrible mentality of people out here. And no amount of laws can change people’s mentality.

    SunilG's HT is good ALL the time. Do not irk him

    + Very well written by Andrew James. Though some text is missing between page 135-136.



    + Awesome HT by Noor. Really liked it. I intend to keep my 220 till my dying day as well! Though I will quote OF’s signature “I don’t let motorcycles get in the way of my motorcycling”.

    Where are the Romans!


    + The number of typos and grammatical mistakes has reduced drastically from the last issue. Good job!

    - The magazine has been reduced from 200 pages to 175.

    Due to weight issues on sending it out of India, plus it will vary.

    - Ken cool’s review has been posted on the forum a long time back and to see it being printed now is not very heartening.

    Not all of the xBhp mag readers have read it,

    - The questions in the Tete a tete are too static. Make it a little more dynamic please.

    Everything looks like static in front the mighty S1000RR.

    - The last para on page 68 repeated on page 70 as well.
    - First para on page 90 repeated on page 92.
    - Haroon Rafiq’s travelogue was a big letdown, considering he is an author I expected better language.


    Cheers
    Sunil will answer the rest.

    Yup, because it is so different that is why I have become a member of xBhp and I am posting here

    Yes sir, it was meant as a complement!

    Aye Aye Cap'n. I will remember never to mess with Sunilji But on a serious note, I was critical about his HT in the last issue. This issue it was an improvement of leaps and bounds, so I said...

    About the questions 'appearing' static in comparison to the mighty 1000RR, well sirjee you sound like a seasoned politician
