It is not that I am not happy with my bike,. as I said, I have always enjoyed my bike.
I have done about 52K KMs,. my mileage in cities is about 42 and on highways about 45, on one trip it averaged out to 47.
I stand corrected. My mileage is around 37.
Just serviced and had my head cleant, costed me about 4K and my bike runs like new,.

Thought of sharing a video of Gold plated RE came in news (Malayalam). It has been gold plated in Bangalore for 127000/-

Alright guys.... Just booked a Classic 350 - Silver!! Should get the delivery by Feb-Mar '11.
All excited as it's my first Bullet! The last time I rode was on my RX100 from 1994 till mid 1999 and a CBZ for 2-3 months at the end of 1999. Haven't ridden since then :-(
Really excited now, can't wait to get back on a motorcycle!!
In the meanwhile, any suggestions on the name for the bike would be welcome.

Singer would be an apt name. It makes exactly the same kind of sound made by the Singer sewing machine owned by my late Grandmother.
