1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Anyone have experience with Richa? They seem priced a fair amount less than Vanson or Spidi or RSD. Is it going to hold up if it has to meet the pavement?

    When I grow up I want to be like Trini. Going to start drinking puncheon, change my accent and start saying "Allyuh" instead of "all of you"

    Damn but that Triumph R3 is brawny. I'm pretty sure I'd kill myself on that.

    They stuck me with a Sportster 1200 which was...interesting to say the least.

    They are. It was nimbler than I expected but I still ended up scraping pegs on some turns.

    It had good power tho on the highway but the ergonomics of the forward controls were awkward at best.

    I mean, I kinda get it but I also felt like I didn't know if I was putting my feet in the right place.

    I also felt like I was racing a recliner.

    I did manage to hit 100 with it tho :slayer:

    My older brother bought one of these new. I think I posted in the happy thread I found a model of one and sent it to him for his birthday last fall.

    It's an Indian bike (with British heritage, I guess).

    I did a little research on them a while back; they seem cool but reviews were mixed at best. I don't know how they currently fare. What piqued my interest was the cafe racer kit you could get for them i.e. cafe style metal finish tank, tail, clip ons, pegs. I like the idea of a modern made reproduction bike.

    They are a major phenomenon in India. Pricewise, they are very competitive. Another major player these days is KTM.

    Bullets are a good ride, they are fairly comfortable and built for Indian road conditions.
