Red face Red devil in Delhi

So after a long wait finally my red Icon landed at the dealer's today.

I should be riding out with it in the next couple of days, provided there are no more 'scratched tank' episodes.

Day temperatures are hovering around 43ºC (109.4ºF) these days.

I'm so not looking forward to the 60Km (38 miles) ride back home from the dealer's.



Some pics from the unboxing earlier today:

You might want to keep that bubble wrap for those stressful days when weather conditions aren't ideal to ride in, I know how frustrating that can be

Ha ha yes @Meancatdaddy it's incredibly painful to indulge in this hobby these days out here.

Guilty as charged @dukes - I love popping bubble wrap - it's sooo addictive.

That said, I have a few weekends worth of accessories & mods to implement to keep me busy till the rainy season shows up.

In other news, keeping the weather in mind, the dealer has very kindly agreed to open shop at 7AM tomorrow so that I can collect my bike & ride back in slightly better conditions.

Tossing & turning in bed - here I come!

That's is very nice of the dealer. The temperatures there are brutal. THe winter in Canada is bad but at least you can dress warm to deal with it. Hot temperatures feel inescapable.

Good luck getting home in that heat.

I only do it out of quite desperation of the rain or just bad weather over all keeping me away from riding, much like a crack head that can't find any crack

That is a bit on the warm side I must say.
Enjoy your ride home and you better go fast......to stay cool of course.

It's just 18°c here in the UK.

Just right for Scrambler riding!.

Enjoy the new bike, and stay safe.

Congratulations! I know how bad it is when the sun belts down and the bike just sits there. Enjoy and ride safe.
