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

I started stealing rides on my Brother's 94 RX-100, which I inherited in 96.

1. 1996 -1998 - 94 RX-100 inherited from my brother
2. 1999 - 2005 - 87 RD350 LT ( Had to sell when I had to go abroad)
3. 2007 - Present - Honda Dio
4. 2007 - 2011 - 87 RD350 LT (Bought back my old RD for a higher price)
Birth of my son, sold my RD to make way for my First car, Polo 1.2 Petrol comfort line (and to get rid of my wife nagging me about how I have to grow up at least now )
5. 2014 - Somehow convinced wife and bought an 84 RD350 HT for low price and built it from ground up.
6. 2015 - Sold the RD to make way for 84 Kawasaki GPZ400R bought from our very own TwinHead. Bike is getting worked on to convert it to a naked street tracker, expected to be completed by end of January.

I will start a new thread about the modification/ conversion experience once the work is complete.

Used to ride friends' Pulsars and Unicorns etc until I got my own ride.

2006-2008- Honda Unicorn

2008-2010- Hero Karizma R

2010-present - hero Karizma(old model) bought second-hand. It's a Nov 2006 model.

I have somehow always loved the pull and character of old type-1 model Karizma and the 'R' simply didn't have it. So I sold my new bought 'R' and got hold of a well kept one and am loving the timeless machine even today.

My rides:

1998 to 2006 - 1976/77 Bajaj Chetak - Now sold

2006 till date - 2006 Honda Unicorn - Will NEVER be sold

Nov 2013 to April 2014 - 2008 Kawasaki Ninja 250R - crashed and totalled

Sep 2015 till date - 2015 Yamaha R15

And Hopefully soon: BMW G310R

Wonder how I missed this thread.
Anyhow, started with a 82 RD350 HT. Held on to it till the early 90's. Sold it and picked up a 93 RX100. In 1999 or 2000 picked up a 86 RD 350 LT while still holding on to the RX100. Around 2006 sold the rx100 and picked up the First gen gsx1300. Sold the first gen gsx around 2009 and bought a 2011 Gen 2 GSX1300. Now have the gen 2 and the old 86 LT which needs a lot of man hours to bring it up to speed. All bikes expect the Gen 2 were bought used.
Post 1996 I had the opportunity to ride for extended periods a variety of bikes that I borrowed from friends/acquaintances ranging from I think a 1994 Honda cbr400rr, the bmw 650f, 1990 kawasaki kb100, 1998 yamaha r1, yezdi jawa 250, bajaj priya s, 1979 bajaj chetak among others.
Now I would like to save up for an adventure tourer like the Africa Twin or maybe the smaller ktm adventure.

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

I have been using quite a few bikes/ scooters since I started riding way back in 1994. So, I started off with a Luna in 1994 I guess.

After that the list goes like this...

- 1995 Kinetic Honda (sold)
- 1997 Honda MBX125F (sold)
- Some Shoguns, a RZ250 and a Kawasaki AR125 (belonging to a buddy)
- 1999 KB 125 (sold)
- 2001 Honda CBX250 F (sold)
- 2001 Honda Activa ( still running @ 1.25 lac kms)
- 2004 Yamaha RD350 HT (sold)
- 2008 Yamaha FZ16 (sold)
- 2012 Yamaha FZ 1
- 2015 KTM Duke 200 (sold)
- 2017 Suzuki Access 125

I miss all of the two-strokes that I had. I wished I kept them all!
These days I have " fun" on the FZ and buy "groceries" on the Access. I'm also looking out for a 125/ 250 two-stroke.
