“When what you are deeply passionate about, what you can be best in the world at and what drives your economic engine come together, not only does your work move toward greatness, but so does your life. For, in the end, it is impossible to have a great life unless it is a meaningful life. And it is very difficult to have a meaningful life without meaningful work. Perhaps, then, you might gain that rare tranquility that comes from knowing that you’ve had a hand in creating something of intrinsic excellence that makes a contribution. Indeed, you might even gain that deepest of all satisfactions: knowing that your short time here on this earth has been well spent, and that it mattered.”

Weekend G2G

Well, some weekends are just weekends, but some weekends are more than weekends!! Today was one such weekend.

A weekend G2G was organized by Sunny from Xbhp to review a Super bike. We didn't knew what bike was supposed to be reviewed but the idea was a plain G2G and discussion.

Started at around 6:00 am from home and reached the destination at 6:28 am at the Kutubh Institutional area. And there it was Sunny with a Honda CB1000R.


Truly speaking, I was a bit disappointed to see the Honda CB1000R. I was expecting something faired and something that's slated to be launched in India. Moreover, Street Naked Bikes have never been my taste actually. So, I decided to give the video review a skip as I was not 100% enthusiastic about the bike in question here. But it's not that I dislike this bike full on and there no positives in this bike from my point of view. Some of the features which I do like are -

1) It's probably the only Japanese bike to feature a single sided swing arm like the Ducatis have.



2) The engine note is just awesome!! Copy book Super bike.

3) A monstrous 100Nm torque means that this bike is very practical for Indian conditions and being naked, the heat dissipation would also be good. Again with 123.37Hp of max power, this bike has all the usable power that an Indian biker can ever exploit in Indian conditions.

So, having given the video review a skip, I walked around, listened to what others have to say about the bike, chatted with a few of them to know what they actually thought about the bike and to say the truth..... there were mixed reviews. So, as the day progressed, more and more bikes started to pour in!!


That's Ken's Black 2007 Yamaha R1

Well the day turned out to be a G2G for Ninja 250s :)

Intruder Alert... Literally :o


Ken with his son and his R1

Taking about Ken, boy I missed to click the video of the way he rode off with his son. In a flash of a second he just went ballistic. Really it requires some skill full riding and experience to do that with a beast like the R1.

Well at around 8:30 am, I decided to call it off a day at the G2G, as on a Sunday, it's not good to leave wify alone for long for safety reasons ;).

But really what a day it was, to meet persons like Sunny, Ken, Old Fox in person, to chat with them about bikes, about riding about pros and cons!! I say no post is enough express the excitement of being there and of-course seeing some of these monsters in flesh and their engine note!!

  5. That R1 just looks like a man among boys in that picture! Have you been able to get out on one of those Ninja 250's yet? I still think that bike lends itself well to the riding conditions over there near you. That R1 really needs some open air to get the most out of it. I'm sure one day you will end up on one though! I do love the shot of the guy on teh R1 with his kid on the back both fully geared up.
