Default Going Down the line...

Touching write up SAM.I am in search for a napkin to wipe off my tears while Iam writing this.
Here goes my story where power downgrades as I change my ride...

Well....I am some one who likes to place hands on as much different brands as I could...
Started off with an ENFIELD @ the age of 18...As years added on to my age..soon I realized that, its one huge machine that doesn't suit my physique.
While it was time for another bike lots of choices flooded from parents side like LIBERO,Splendor,VIctor But I always sticked onto PULSAR (keeping in mind the bike stunts and enormous option for modification)..and finally got my hands on a PULSAR 150.
Always wanted to know how the small yet powerful breed RX 100 ,RX 135 feels...and I gotto feel that too...as I am running and breathing an RX 135 now..
My eyes get stuck to PUlsar 200 when One passes by even when I ride on a RX 135.

I smell something..

OY!! Nostalgia boy , you are most welcome for the ride.....................

And next time, do remember that the extension of your body needs the fuel cock to be turned off, else revvhead loses the fuel in his tank and cant start the bike due to lack of fuel!!

Luckily the reserve came in handy!!

cheerio from Jakarta

I am still lucky with my RX..ummm..135.

Damn, now you have brought back memories of my father's Royal Enfield that I rode around when I was in 12th standard. He sold it before I got my license and before I got into college.

Smile Brings back fond memories


That really made me emotional.

I started biking in 1992 when I was 17 and my first bike was Dad's Enfield. At 47 kgs, friends called me "Mosquito on the bullet". Always dreamt about the Rx100 but dad refused saying Rx100 is dangerous bike / mileage is bad and was pro-hero honda . Finally I had to relent since going on a CD100SS is better than going on a 6 wheeler to your college which has only 2 buses plying in that route (once in morning and once in the evening). After more than a dozen accidents / bruises / sutures in HH and friends' bikes upgraded to a Zen in 2002. Marriage happened, child was born but the fire to own the Rx100 was always burning.

Finally in 2007, got my friend's almost dead 1990 Rx100, spent a fortune on bringing it back to life and today am a happy Rx100 biker. Though i drive sedately now, riding the Rx100 brings fond memories of those happy college days.

This is my first post and feel happy to start my team-bhp journey in this thread.

Saw this thread only now. And indeed it is very touching. No one could have narrated it better than you my friend. Similar experience with me.

After coming back to Dubai, as I was walking by the creek one day, I saw a car parked by the side of the creek. It was a Toyota Crown super saloon beige color. This was exactly the same car (well, atleast the same model & same color and pretty old too) which my dad owned before while we were staying in Dubai previously (till '96). During that time, there had not been a day when I have not been in the car. And seeing the same car after 11 years, I was truly taken aback. My first reaction was to whip out my mobile and take a few shots on the camera. Although I wanted to sit inside the car once again, I could not as the owner wasn't anywhere nearby. But just seeing the car again in flesh really brought bak old memories. Here's a picture of the car I saw. Nothing too great about the car. Except plenty of memories.

Thumbs up

Excellent !!! Nice to see all the big boys of the forum share the same feeling about the RX. I learnt driving on my friend's Rx135 in college. I could not imagine myself riding any other bike after that. When i had to money to buy a bike finally (after 5 long years) everyone wanted me to buy the pulsar. But i made the right decision. Im still happy and will never part with my RX at any cost.

Superb writeup Sam.. You truly rock.
Although Ive never got the opportunity to own a bike, let alone the couple of occasions when I must have ridden a splendour, your story made me miss not having an RX100.
I know of some friends who owned one at some point of time in their younger days, and they swear by the RX100. "No bike can come even close to that Japanese masterpiece" is what a lot of them say..
Great recount.

Amazing write up Sam.
I think you should get one quickly. It will make Robin happy if he sees this thread from somewhere in the sky.
