Today is a very special day in my life, 3 years ago on this day, I was thrilled, proud, overjoyed and anxious at the realization of a dream, end to a pursuit – The R1.
It has been 3 eventful and glorious years with the R1 and honestly it is the cycle of ups and downs which has made this journey of ownership of the motorcycle so memorable.
The ogle from the fairer section, to be seen by kids as an idol, to the jealousy of other folks, to that overwhelming responsibility of riding a liter-class monster on our highways, to the constant hunt for premium and better quality of fuel stations on the rides, to those cheap thrills of shifting at 11,000 rpm, to getting the skin of your legs burnt(courtesy riding in the city), to being reminded about the impracticality of owning a super-sport motorcycle in India and to many more such MOMENTS – Cheers!!
In spite of everything, I love the R1 – it is these small things which make every outing with the R1 so memorable 🙂
Cheers to the 3 wonderful years we have spent and to many more 🙂
