Learnt riding on dad's Bajaj Super (~1984)
Used to borrow a friend's RX-100 to run errand in college (~95-96)
Got the DL on my own RXZ (1998-2006)
Now ride a Bullet Electra 5s(2006+) and occasionally wife's Kinetic Style (2001+).

My last long ride was Pune to Bordi and back (~600kms) on new year. Family traveled in friends' NHC while I rode solo on my Bullet

You meant CD100 ?

Can't recall hero honda ever released a model called rs100 in India. There first and longest living model (other than Splendour) was perhaps CD100.

Unhappy OT- Bullet lovers- no more Electra 4s?

Can't seem to find 4s on Royal Enfield website? Only Electra 5s is listed there. Has this been discontinued? I thought 4s was a more popular sister of 5s?

C'mon- bikers don't give up so easily. Just for a quick inspiration look at me
I chauffeur my family five days a week but weekends are bike days. It would be lot easy, if you have a daughter- little girls like to ride behind dad's bike and that is reason enough to convince missus that how badly you need to get back to biking!
