Here ya go guys.
The bike my team and some pics from the event.
Need to figure out how to do the videos. maybe dump them on my face book page.
Under Rohinton Chinoy.

Ron Ji:

I loved the pictures.  I felt as if I was just there.  The winding roads, lush green mountainside, and good weather.  Something about connecting to the place I was born at.  Miss it.  Hope to visit it again.

How about video on the youtube ?  It is easy to load and watch for viewers all over the globe.

Very cool, Br. Ron Ji...  8)  CONGRADULATIONS to you, the team and, of course, that C5 Black Beauty!

I look forward to watching the video!  :)
Long live the Bullets and those who ride them!

Keep the shiny side up, the boots on the pegs and best REgards,

Done deal Singh Ji
But Im not as smart as your Junior Shaeroo let me figure it out.
thanks guys.
Quite a few want to know what the point of racing a bike. Without prepping it for the race i.e. Sari Guard, stock foot rests, indicators etc.

It was done like that  on purpose.
I call it rubbing it in,

Next time we will go the whole hog and Ill be sure to trouble all you guys for your inputs.

Ps: Just a note to add Thanks to RE and my dealers. I now have all the spares I need.
Got my head gasket, cams you name it.

This one is for you Singh Ji
These are the boys who work for my RE Dealer.
Special thanks to their technical manager Mr. Shivaiah (White Shirt). And the guy circled in Red is Mr Vinayakam he takes care of my bike. He did the first free service.
You couldn't meet a nicer bunch. took the bike and cup over to thank them for all their help. I think I made their day. two simple words "thank You" costs you nothing to say it. Yet so powerful.

Vinayakam is a real helpful guy. He'll be on top of the world to see his pic on a forum. Must show him next time I go to HSR for spares. Great to see you put up pics of these hard working people who most often are relegated to the background.

Hey Jay I have been helping people race for over a decade.
And I see what pricks most winners turn into.

So made sure we never land up doing the same.

Guys U tube is full of videos
Check out this link

The thing about the Bullet is it looks slow and sounds slow. But the times it was putting in under 1:35 during practice and a 1:39 on the day of the race with the gear box acting up is still faster than half the chambered RDs that where raced.
and unlike the factory boys who got to run as many times or do what they liked we only got one run. you will appreciate the time it did when you compare it to what the competition was doing.
