Hello Friends,
I got my bike last friday. Have run a total 4 Kms till now. I must say I am loving it. I just want to go on riding ..don't 'want to stop.

My bike is yet to get the registration number so I can't venture beyond a particular crossing where cops are usually found...so I am tied to a small radius within which I can run my bike. Hopefully I will get the bike registered tomorrow and then take out the bike for a longer distance.

My other bike is a 40 year old Royal Enfield(99K kms). Coming from an Enfield to a Yamaha is sheer bliss... The difference could not have been more stark...the suspension comfort, the power band and the slick gear shift...everything is better..much better on the R3.

Its with much self control that I have stopped myself from going on a longer ride till now...

I look forward to lots of long trips on my R3.

regards to everyone,

Jawed Ahmed India

Its interesting that you knew of the REs.am surprised and impressed...otherwise...REs are so India specific..at least now days..its difficult to find people who know of REs in the other bike forums ..of course there are dedicated RE forums..

Yes...I did know that they are sold in the US. But the numbers are miniscule.

Actually the bikes which RE makes now are quite advanced and have a lot of technology in them (FI for instance)...The build quality too has gone up...but the still a long way from the Jap or US/EU bikes

The bike in the pics I have shared has a Cast Iron Engine Block...and additionally if you see closely you will notice that the Gear Shift and Brake levers are reversed..unlike the new REs....and the exhaust sound...that itself is worth all the trouble..;)

regards,
Jawed
