Hi All,

Who owns what?

Great theme to talk

My first two wheeler was Avanti Garelli for 4 years
Next came Yezdi 175 CC Dlx. - 4 .5 years
Suzuki Samurai - 11 years
Bullet 500 cc - since 1 year

Four Wheeler:

Softtop 1987 model Maruti Gypsy purchase for Rs. 75 k . Drove for nearly 1 year and travelled nearly 15k kms. Sold the same at Rs. 60k to another Gypsy

Gypsy , 1995 model hardtop, fully modified by Dilip Chhabria and once owned by Rajesh Khanna. Been with it for over 7 years now. No intentions of selling or discarding.

I used Gypsy for regular travel and off roading. Travelled nearly 90 k kms in 7 years. When I say off roading, driving on rocks, slush, mud, river bed, jungle. Been continuing to.

Now bought Aveo UV-A 1.2 LS model just few days. Will keep it for family travel only.

Bullet serves as daily transportation of about 50 -60 kms

Warm regards,
Dwarak
Cooldrive

Hi Friends,

My love for riding started pretty young as my dad used to ride a JAWA, later known as YEZDI. First of course was the bicycle on which we did everything imaginable and pretty much trashed it. then came other two wheelers in this order:

1. TVS Moped (don't remember what cc was this) 1987-93
2. Yamaha RX-100 (1993 - 1998)
3. Triumph Rocket III (2007 - Present)

I don't have any pics of my beloved RX-100 (I wish I had taken some) but here are the pics of monstrous Triumph:



Cheers guys and safe riding !! cheers:

1) TVS moped - for 2 years since I was 12
2) Enfield Bullet - occasional rides while my dad balanced it and I rode it
3) Rajdoot my dad had this one too - learnt geared biking on this one since I was 15
4) Chetak - my uncle's - he lent it to me to ride it to my first job (few months)
5) My sweetheart - The Suzuki SHOGUN - for 4 long years - had the best time and the best memories of my life stay with this bike. Not with me anymore.
6) RD 350 - while at Manipal (seemed quite popular there).
7) Kinetic Honda and its kin that looked like it was pregnant all the time??? had this due to my wife before we graduated to a 4-wheeler.
