The City of London : Time Lapse

As we little tiny tots are playing hide and seek in our lives, destroying, creating or doing whatever…
spare a thought what nature is doing above us.

Suzuki GSXR 750 – Ride Review

As a child, I grew up thinking of only one thing – “If I could ever get to be on this fast, real fast motorcycle” that will do standstill to 100 in the first gear and 200 in the second gear. Yeah all those thoughts come true with time, desire, patience and passion. I just never knew when, how and where.

Now, as an adult I have reached that stage where I do have that childhood realization turn reality with time. I welcome you all to the ride review of the SUZUKI GSXR 750 – the real rocket which does as your imagination can make you think of it. This is for real that this motorcycle is FAST, FAAAST, really very FAAASST and can kill you if not handled with precise control and superb decision making process inside your brain. No, it is no brainer for all the speed freaks out there but this is at the same time a machine meant to take you into the higher level. There is nothing wrong about this bike but everything that is there is just right and light.

Let me introduce you to the SUZUKI GSXR 750, I am sure it needs no introduction – smooth as silk, fast as you can face, corners like a melting butter on hot tarmac – there are not enough synonyms to play with. It is fairly simple if you are a rider – you will adore, love and respect this machine. I have done 2100miles to date on this fairly 3year old Suzuki GSXR which has 18000miles on it when I got it. It now has over 20000miles and it leaves me no box un-ticked for its comparison. I can give an insider out review on it but let’s stick to the basics of what everyone wants to know of.

Acceleration: 0-60mph(0-100kmph) – is blistering fast. Real trait of this is known on the real tarmac or track. Considering you can easily clock 120mph(200kmph) in the second gear shift – it does give you an immense idea of what I am talking here. It is more than a beast considering the way it moves. 10/10

Braking: Well, I won’t have a distance figures but I always say nothing can stop you from killing yourself but yeah if you have got some road and really clean surface you can stop yourself before you kill yourself. Jokes apart, the braking is fairly decent and I would only give it 7/10 as there is plenty of room where this can be improved.

Handling: I, insist – this is going to be a top brass when it comes to handling. This is a superb piece of machinery designed well in line with contours to keep your adrenalin flowing to the fullest. No holds barred. The light weight makes it best contender in its class. You are looking at a 750cc with a handling of a 600cc which makes it one in its category. I call it unbeatable when it comes to the smooth handling of this beast. 10/10

Mileage: Big question, small answer – “Very good” considering I am doing an average of 66miles a day – using this bike same as my other very reliable Yamaha Fazer FZ6 600S2, there is seriously not a huge lot of difference. This will come to reserve or the reserve lights will come at about 135miles. The best I have had so far is 143miles before the reserve kicked in included couple of hours on the motorway. I would give it fairly high ratings of 8.5/10

Comfort: On the longest single ride that I had on it was 143miles without a stop and that was fair grounds to test this ride to its best potential. You can get cracking on with it opening the accelerator or be sensible riding it with constant motorway speed limits and get a wow sort of mileage and same time the comfort. Gxxr750 is kind on wrists, seating posture and your knees positioning. This bike has 3 step adjustable foot rest which can be adjusted depending on how tall or short you are and if you want a more relaxed posture. One shortfall is it does tend to strain the back after a period of time but hey this is not a touring bike which you can go on touring for hours but yes it is fairly good for motorways splash and dash rides. I would rate it 8/10

Nothing beats the beast inside. The Engine in itself is smooth power house that hides itself well behind the plastic shrouds and the sexy looking cowls on its either side – you can absolutely be happy with this machine and never complain about missing a beat. The only thing you can miss on it is – not getting seen by someone and getting over run (on the funny note). Do not underestimate the power of this 150bhp that can get you well over and beyond mental speeds of no coming back. I have called it off at xxxmph after which I did feel this is one helluva motorcycle that is lot more capable in its hidden form under its hood. It still had lot more room but I would leave that till I can head out on the Autobahn the next time.

Enjoy the video after I completed my first 1000miles and some real good insights too.

As for the beginners, this is not the first time bike if you are new on the scene. I am not trying to de-motivate you or stop you but just be kind on yourself and learn to handle the bike on a 600cc. I do see this to be an advanced level bike which has thrills, speed and all the things you want out of a litre bike. The best part is – it won’t leave you with much more to ask from it.

**If you would like to ask something more about the bike – feel free to ask. Happy to help you with the real first hand experience.

Driving through A87 – Scotland scenic and beautiful road

I have been here before on the motorcycle riding in opposite direction of this and partially in dark but this is nothing compared when you can get to see every curve, mountain and valley so clearly.

Soaked in the tone of music from Bally Sagoo classic remix – the magic flows as we go through these beautiful locations.

PS: Song selection was automatic.
PPS: Yes, the windscreen is full of bug marks
PPPS: That’s not 60kmph but 60mph (96kmph)

Thank you Bunny for making all this possible & keep coming.

Source of life .. [Sun] – II

Sun, the basic necessity of life which we lack in real terms of life. People run to go south, further south, further east but all of sudden when it decides to show up.. It never lacks to release that power of fresh feeling energy ..

Here we go.. .It was first a decision not to go but then .. Did I really want to miss this expensive sunny day – may be the last one this calendar year of 2011.. baaah baaah.. baaah.. Ja, I m going !!

At first, it seems to be good but it needs to get better until it is the best !! Ride “ON” now @ ranting mankii

Did someone ever say, more is never enough.. So what.. you can get even more.. Just Kick your Pedals 😉 La la laa…

The purpose is never fulfilled – it’s the way we humans are.. I m not going to kick anymore for anymore.. enough is enough.. WAIT, there was a challenger ..

What .. where .. !! It bloody hot, no one is out here !!
Damn, I need to see open my eyes .. Start sleeping in night – Man

You know what .. !! .. It’s a good thought to lose sometimes, I am going to enjoy the hot heat ..my way.. M Y W A Y

To forget, to forgive and yet to be One with yourself – You need to Sweat hard dude!! Oh yeaah.. was doing it out loud.

Sweat is good for health if you still know that you can sweat in October, its bloody cold .. Stop cribbing start ENjoyIng .. Shut up n Ride the RAMP

After all that sweat, you do feel like color blind – sweating like a dog who only has his sweat glands in his mouth !! Damn, oh yes, that true and some believe dogs dont see colours as well.. It seems becoming one was easy when u sweat

Life can be so colourless at times and at the blink of eye it can be the most colourful thing, Autumn is all around !! Yeah, its strange – its summer heat combined with Autumn – that too in Britain !! HELLYEAH

Sing me .. a Song… Song of love, the leaves are going to fall and we are going to separate – love of my life and apple of my eye – I love you to see you but to see you go, you come again in my life – is that what the trees sing to the falling leaves ?? – HOW CAN I KNOW 😀 LoL

It seriously is getting hot.. indeed hotter .. seems I was back home today – the weather brought the hot sultry wind along and the whole landscape seems so classic – faded in luxurious sun

But as we all know.. we must keep going this time to the downhill – the speed and the adrenalin comes along till the flat road hits again – was I really not going to capture it .. OH COME ooON..WHEN DO I EVER STOP

And a little bit more.. A bit more the brit way — goooooooooo

Aaah.. there’s still some more curves along the road.. Can I make some more of them .. OFCOURSE

Dont I get tired, Yes I do .. and when I am tired I am back to doing – what I love to do .. Be myself, Do as the Romans in Rome, Love the nature when in greens. Ooioiiieeeh Doing it baba ..

Even the nature says.. go run away.. do not disturb us !! Yes, they said it out loud but what can I do if they show me so many mini wonders .. SHALL I RUN … no ways

After all this conversation, do u think I am going to quit – no I m going to go for more

Abstracts of nature are the best, one can enjoy when in nature. One of my close friends introduced me to his many miracles, one being his Macro lens, which I miss so much but do hell, till I don’t buy mine – Addie, I will keep haunting you with the macro shots from non Macro lens.. beware, this one goes out to you 🙂 my dear buddy

Enough is once more enough, let me get back – its going to be all uphill and it will make me all classic about it – in unsaturated mode !!

For now, this is going to be it .. I m getting tired – the ride is killing me – too much adrenalin drained out so soon – is also not a good thing .. ting ting..

Well, I must say bye now to all the avid friends who saw the warmest day of the year at 29C 🙂 today. The final shot of the day and till the next time I get to see the sun again.
