Very well written, Sam.

I used to lust for the RX myself in my teens and was extremely envoius of my friends who owned it but pops would never write a cheque for anything with two wheels and a motor :( Loved the classic black and chrome one. Silver one is the next best favorite. Hated the chumps who would modify the silencer to produce a stupid rickshaw-like sound.

Thanks Sam, that made a great read. I'm one of those who had an RX in college in the early 90s – a red one, later painted black. It was the bike to be seen on in those days. It never seized a piston or blew a gasket in all the six years I lived on it – I can't say the same about the Bullets I've owned...

Ah! The owners and ex-owners of RX would feel moved by reading this, just like I am right now. It was a beauty and a beast. Well, those were the days.

Great write-up Yeti!

Fantastic! And I can relate to this tale having ridden around on a RX-100 for a few months after completing my 10th standard! What fun!

P.S. I remember you owned a CBR too at one point of time. Any memoirs of that?

Plus you save money on clothing because they will wear half pants all their lives.

Thumbs up

Sam bhai,

can relate to your story on RX 100, I had the pleasure of owning two of them and I regret of selling the second one just 4 yrs back .

However, I don't intend to sell the RX 135 2 Stroke, 4 Gear cousin of RX 100, though it can't match closely to its earlier generation. Its a pleasure to ride even now on RX, though I get warnings all around that I should not ride the bike 40+ KM Speed at this age , but who cares, once in a while ripping her to 80+ is a pure pleasure IMO
