Back in olden days there was a Splendor which served as my sole mode of transportation. Then came the Thunderbird in 2002 and riding was transformed into fun ever since. I've done more than 100k kms on it and its seen good days and bad ones. Had thoughts of selling it multiple times but its hard to let go, for the past 3-4 years it only comes out in July for the Ladakh rides.

Other bikes in the family are a 1986 Enfield Bullet Export model and a Honda Unicorn which is my brother's daily ride.

The Bike looks hot in white, unlike the wannabes with lousy fiberglass panels, the mods on yours look like a real high-class job. Great looking bike. Do you have a thread dedicated for your bike, would like to see more on the same.
Thanks a lot Downsouth for the comment. In fact nigel is a senior prototypist with a french design college.Yes i will soon be having a thread separately on the bike as soon as i get some professional shoots done by this Sunday.

How well does it handle with these mods? Anything on the flip-side that you experienced?

It would definitely help fellow motorcyclists if you share a detailed writeup with pics as suggested by fellow TBHPian Downsouth
thanks again Sudhirbhan. there were a lot of flip flops we went through while designing the bike. but eventually we managed to have a looker and a sprinter as well. the tires do rob some power but handling is something i got used to in three or four rides..
As mentioned i will have a very detailed report on the bike soon. Thanks for the encouragement again guys. It means a lot.

Hi,

Used to ride a BMW F650 in 2004/05. Switched over to a fuel-injected Honda Super Blackbird CBR1100XX in 2005 having sold the Funduro. The Blackbird is probably quite unlike any other bike ever made; a true modern classic in the making - at least for those of us who are Blackbird fans :-) It's the bike I don't think i'll ever sell.

Keeping the Blackbird company is a Yamaha RD350 which is currently being refurbished.

Great thread, came across it just today.

Just 2 bikes in my life

1997 - 2002 - TVS Scooty. Speedo was around 40k when I sold her.
2002 - 2009 - TVS Suzuki Fiero 147cc. Speedo at exact 50k when upgrade began.
2009 - till date - TVS Suzuki Fiero 183cc*. Speedo around 63k and its my daily ride to office and weekend rides less than 300 kms.

* Same Fiero but with customizations.

Prior to these bikes, rode pillion on Dad's RE 350 Standard which is now close to I think 20 years old and its his daily ride. He got it re-registered a couple of years ago.

MaSh

I own a Hero Honda Karizma which has recently clocked 10,000 KMs. I also own a Bajaj classic SL scooter which is now rarely used, say 100 KM in a year.
