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

I have a strong passion for riding bikes, I started riding back in 2010 and now I don't I will ever stop it.

First bike:

1. Inherited mom's Activa (2006 Model)

2. My first geared bike was the very famous HH Splendor which I started riding after my 18th birthday, it was a 2002 Model and it still runs butter smooth.

3. On my 20th Birthday, I got my very first bike as a gift from my parents. It's the Royal Enfield Thunderbird 350. This is the bike that got me addicted to riding and exploring places, it's like my best friend and makes me smile whenever I straddle her and at times I even talking to my bike . Apart from the standard Royal Enfield niggles, it still is a great bike. This bike has taught me the manners of riding a bike, and that riding is not just about speeding. Even after 3 years now, I don't have customized her much as I prefer to keep her as stock as possible. Till now I have only added a USB charger under my seat and am soon planning to get on a pair of 9 LED Circular Fog Lamps. This is the one bike I won't be selling all my life and will be cherishing it for a long time to come.

Here is the bike itself:

Are those police stickers legit? or have you pasted them just to prevent cops from towing away your bike ? Last week I noticed a police towing van full of such bikes. KTMs, FZs, R15s with police stickers on them.

My father is a cop but both the bikes are only used by me. And yes, the stickers were pasted to prevent cops from towing away the bikes. But nowadays after the E-Challan system, they do not care for any stickers, planning to remove them soon.

Oh boi,
Try to brag and then land into thread that completely "brag-spec".
Well without wasting much time here is my "brag-list":
1983 Rajdoot 175(inherited from dad, owe a lot to it for developing the riding keeda)
1996 Lml Vespa NV (just restored recently )
2009 cbz extreme, (heavily modded for offroading)
2014 Honda CBR 250R (Cherry red)
2015 KTM Duke 390 (white)
2015 Royal Enfield continental GT(Yellow)
The last three have done interstate trips(not just hopping across the borders but a complete 2000km ride from Kutch to Patna).
Till recently I was lusting for an RD, but given the opportunist market and the tendency of RDs to demand your attention all the time made me drop the idea.

Hamara Bajaj reincarnated - Bajaj Pulsar 220 FI - 2007!

Needs very little intro as I’ve already written my experience here (My 2007 Pulsar 220 FI – Tribute to a wonderful companion!).

I wish there was a similar decal “LIVE TO RIDE”

@ Mods: please advise if this is going to be available soon so that I don’t have to put my car decal on the bike!

Aah what a thread. In between all the cars and whatnots finding such a thread on motorcycles is like finding a cherry in a cake piece

Coming to the main topic, got my first bike in 2016. A 2013 Bajaj Discover 125ST which was used by my brother on his commute to college and back. He also did quite a bit of touring on it. The bike landed on my hands after I got my DL and brother bought a Royal Enfield Classic 350 for himself. One fun fact ? It touches 121kmph with the chest down in the tank position. Maybe my 44kg weight had also a part to play in the feat

Then after I completed my first semester, the need for a fun motorcycle rose. That was November-December 2016 and rumors started to appear that Bajaj will be relaunching the NS200. It was my duty everyday to search online about the status of the bike. One fine morning got the news that dealers have started taking bookings of the bike. Got the permission from parents and went ahead to book. But the thing is that there were two dealers at the city which I went to book my bike. One was Akash Bajaj and another was Highway Bajaj. Funny thing is that while Akash was accepting bookings Highway had no idea that NS200 was coming back to markets. Went ahead with the booking and booked my beast on 14Feb of this year and got delivered on the date they promised, 20 Feb. Since then munched 10k kilometres and it has been an awesome journey, even though the hard suspension setup did give me some back aches in the long rides

1. Learned to ride at the age of 14years on an LML Vespa Scooter (2008-2012)
Had to sell it off due to few constraints at home.

Officially started riding at the age of 18 years
2. Pulsar 220f (2012-2015) : Had to sell it off to get a new bike (odo: 65000kms)
3. KTM RC390 (2015 - ) : 17000kms and running
But one thing that has been there with me since the LML is my helmet which I still keep as a remembrance of years on the saddle
