To get to the point now - I am 31 yrs old and learnt riding two wheelers when I was in class 7 I started with my Father´s Priya scooter(the one with 150cc and three gears) which is older than me(my father bought it in 1976 and we still have it nicely parked in his place).

Today, I can say I am a proud owner of a small fleet of motorcyles which I ride whenever I get time. Here is the list in order as I acquired them:

1978 Yamaha 125 Trail(also bought by my father from Bombay in 1980).
1996 Enfield Machismo 350cc
1986 Yamaha RD 350 HT (Twin cylinder)
1982 Rajdoot GTS175(Bobby)
1942 BSA M20 500 cc
1944 Triumph 3HW 350cc
1946 Triumph 3T 350 cc(Twin cylinder)
1946 Matchless 3GL 350cc
1950 BSA ZB31 350cc(with the bigger cylinder head)
1950 BSA BB31 350cc
1948 James 125cc(with Villiers engine and Hand gears)
1980 Jawa/Yezdi Colt 60 cc
1987 Yezdi 350cc (Twin cylinder)
2004 Avanti mini Dirt bike 50cc(my nephew rides it)

some two wheeler which I rode and sold in between:
1985 Ind-Suzuki 100cc
1994 Kinetic Honda
1977 Yezdi 250cc
1986 Yamaha RX 100
1996 Kawasaki Bajaj KB 125

All the bikes are in excellent condition and super fit to ride.

Cheers to all the riders!!! And DONT forget your helmets!!!
That is a long list man. Don't know any thing about 1/3 rd of them. Would be good if you post the pictures of all of them. You sure seems to be very passionate about your bikes. Enjoy your rides.

btw, I just have an RX 135 with me. :(

1st Bike: Hero Honda Splender (2002 - 2003)

2nd Bike: Bajaj Pulsar DTSi (Gen 1 - 2003-2009)

3rd Bike: Bajaj Discover DTSi 100 cc (Hum Admi bike)

P180 DTSi was a dream bike to ride. But until recently the engine had some serious problem. It switches off when cruising at 80/90 KMPH. Found it a little dangerous. Hence had to sell it and get a Discover DTSi 100 cc.

The Discover DTSi is more or less like the pulsar's sibling. Less on power but more on Mileage.

How does the missus take to it?!! Must be one pampered bike

BTW, I notice that your mobile ranks higher than the vehicle - now that's a really different bhp-ian!
