Nice choice. These small 2 Strokes are extremely handy to punt around. Serve up some excitement too.

For me it's been
1) Cycle (in school days) stripped down to the bare minimum, inspired by the movie BMX BANDITS released at that time. Also, inherited the most scars from trying to do stunts.
2) Luna Super - 6months (managed to roger the poor thing out of recognition)
3) Hero Puch - 1year (same story, rogered it in a year for want of bigger bike)
4) Yamaha RX100 - brother's bike (learnt everything about bikes on this one)
5) Yamaha RX 135 - used it for 3yrs (always serviced & tuned it at home, took it to my mechanic only for body work & other work which I couldn't do at home)
6) Bikeless for almost 2yrs after marriage, was overseas travelling continuously.
7) Honda CB400SF NC31 - recently bought. Planning on keeping it for 2yrs. Sweet bike, needed attention, so am taking care of her now.
8) Honda Hornet 600 - next bike (preferably used), new bikes depreciate faster

Hey. I never noticed that either Addy. Great buy! I always wanted one of those ever since I first saw it on the cover of Car&Bike International. At the time, the all black bike looked like a refreshing change.

Thanks guys. I can't buy a new car for a few years to come. But, I needed something affordable and exciting at the same time. What better than a high pick-up two stroke bike? It's amazingly easy to ride. Rebuilt the entire engine, so, running her in at the moment. The old exhaust blew last week, so, a new one will be fitted tomorrow. In the money I spent, I was offered a beautifully maintained HH Splendor. It would be cheaper to run and maintain, but, wouldn't excite me at all.

The going for me has been:

1. Bajaj Chetak : Learnt driving on it. Used it when available (when my dad was using the car) for about 3 years.

2. Bajaj Legend : First 4 stroke machine I used. Great mileage, pickup but needed more of clutch plates than petrol to run.

OT id anyone notice that new Pulsars come with third generation Throttle Ignition Control System (TRICS). So what happened to earlier two generations? They failed, and they did so on a Bajaj Legend.


3. Since Nov.2003 : Pulsar 150 DTSi. 47k kms to date.

Yup - the original 'Fear The Black'. Far more convincing, too

My bike doesn't have a disc brake. The bike and the rebuild together cost me approximately 20K - block, piston, body plastics, brakes, wiring, lights, alignment and a new battery. I'm planning to change the rear tyre after a while.
She's running beautifully now.
