I have been in Dubai for well many years (too long I feel). I work in the Insurance Industry and worked for Insurance Companies closely associated to Yamaha, Honda & BMW dealerships. Because of my biking interest, I usually become pally with Managers in the sections and the plus point is that I get invited to sample any new launch or new versions of bikes here- hence, "most variants". The downside of this relation is that often I am called up on to give insurance to "little pups" wanting to start riding an R1 just after getting their D/L.

I have owned a R6 and CBR only. All the others used courtesy of the manufacturers/friends

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.

Quite a number of bikers here, eh?

Well I'm admittedly more of a car guy, although I have ridden trips long/fast/tough enough to give any hardcore biker a run for his money.

Owned just one bike in my entire life - a 2004 Pulsar 180 DTSi which I still maintain like new. The bike started life with me fresh off the showroom in Kolkata, spent 2 years in Goa, 2 in Ahmedabad, now back again to Kolkata.

Also, if this means anything, I was an active member of the erstwhile Kolkata chapter of XBHP.

Default need your suggestions on a new bike

Greetings everyone,

Have been a bike enthusiast for many years now.

First ride was the humble Kinetic-Honda. Was the orignal Honda manufactured one, part of the first lot, just assembled in India, and boy was it an amazing. Ride it till date (almost 25 years now - the scooter).

Second bike was a Yamaha YD-125. Bad choice I know, but then, I was in college then, and was tight around the Pocket.

Looking for a new ride now. Have checked out the FZ-16, was almost going to book the same this week, but then I heard BAL's coming up with a new lineup of the P200's with FI, plus the Excise duty cuts. Gonna check with the PBK guys this weekend.

Wish me luck guys

wow bikes..! i started with the LML Vespa NV which belonged to our family and bought mine a Bajaj super and shifted to a Ind Suzuki lasted all my college life. mileage was a big constrain so when i upgraded, it was a samurai.. and always wished to have a shogun. Then i bought a Kawasaki SX Enduro and made it to a complete off roader. Multi linked monoshocks, and underseat exhaust were first of its kind in my town back in 1996. Then became the Bullet 1962 G2. I started feeling old after riding that for some time and bought my Pulsar 180 in 2002. In some time about 20000kms i swithced back to a Bullet and then to Thunderbird. I became a serious long distance rider and that was the time i manged to get a used Comet and soon added an Aquila. Another BSA B31 came in to my garrage and i had 4 bikes in my parking. Thunderbird got changed to Electra 5S and changed that to a Machismo 500 LB. Soon sold off all those bikes other than machismo to buy a Suzuki GSXR 600. The feel off riding a super bike came late when i actually seasoned up loosing out a lot of adrenaline rush.
