On the biking front:

Started at 14 (8th grade) on a Kinetic Honda (1995)

Got a chance to lay hands on a Bajaj Cub, Applied dimaag and used my driving (Car) experience on it and bingo! I could ride a geared scooter!!

9th grade, I used to take out my dad's Rx100 for short spins after school.
10th grade , Yamaha RXG (Dad owned one from the first 5 RXGs in Kerala).
11th grade (1999), Grandpa gifted a spanking new Yamaha RXZ, she's still a part of my garage

Wow nice to see the list of bikes, probably if we start collecting the names, I believe we can find every single of the ones that were, is sold in india since some 50's or even earlier.

My list goes so:

learned to ride in a
1. Yamaha RX100 2stroke a 1960's make with original jap engine(probably from the first lot of yamaha's those were sold in india) and this bike is still running strong giving the modern FI's and RTRs a run for their money.
2. Rode sissy's scooty
3. Got my first girlfriend, a Discover DTSI 125
4. Now upgraded to Suzuki GS150R

well, the baby gixxer will be here for sometime, since I will be leaving abroad soon. Btw, my dream bike has always been a Yamaha. Especially Yamaha R1.

A funny commercial for yamaha and what it says is indeed true! Enjoy

1960 model RX100??!

I believe that RX100s were introduced during mid 80s in India

Rode the Kinetic while in Junior College.

Got myself a CBZ (the 1st edition) when I got into college. Had that doll for 3 years!

I remember when CBZ was first launched, I dreamt of having one so when I had to choose the bike, CBZ it was! In absolute love with the engine firing.

I've riden the Karizmas and FZRs but for me, CBZ is first-love!

Purchased a Honda Dio as I turned 16 and got a gearless license. Have done about 11k kms in 15 months ! 90% of my riding includes highways, plan to take this for a long ride to Pune once my boards get over.

Will upgrade to a 180/220cc bike once I get the geared license !
