2002 Bullet Electra is my first bike and will remain with me forever.
Run over 93k kms and going strong with no engine work till date.

1996 Bullet 500, bought second in 2007 with over a lakh and two re-bores done. Ran another 10k kms till the engine gave up. Replaced piston/bore and run 30k kms since(mainly used for long distance).

Cant come to terms to selling either of them to upgrade, hence enjoying them to the fullest now.

Default Re: How many bikers in here and what do you ride?

Have Always been a Car enthusiast and got into bikes pretty late. Wanted to buy RE TBTS 350; but then shied away because of the niggles and maintenance problems that i read about (almost) everywhere. Been Owning an ANHC 2010 and the All new Swift 2012 and wanted something along the same lines --> Reliable and relatively maintenance and niggle free.

So after a bit of due dilligence went ahead and bought the Yamaha R15 version 2.0; its been a shade over a month now and have clocked almost 1200 KMs on the odo and loving every single bit of it.

Is there any R15 riding clubs in Bangalore? Would be grateful if someone could let me know.
