The first bike I ever rode was the Kinetic Honda. And the first bike I ever owned was (and I still own it!) the Pulsar 150.

My first and only bike is the 2007 model cbz x-treme.
It has been a really wonder experience and the bike has never let me down.
42000Kms on Odo and the bike is still going really strong

Mine was a Suzuki Shogun. I was in college and proud owner of the fastest bike till the third year when my biker friend brought a used RD-350.

Thats when I decided that I needed more than 14BHPs - and got myself a RD350 myself. I still regret selling both those bike though.

And about 10 years later, I still cannot find worthy replacements for that pair for less than 3 Lakhs.

My first and only bike is Hero Honda Ambition 135. It has done 57k+ on the odo and is doing the duty pretty well even after 7 years in service. Even today the bike starts in one kick anyday. Only downside is its got only 9 BHP and I do feel the lack of power sometimes. BTW, I have ridden the bike for about 500 kms in the last 2.5 years. Reason- I drive my car to office everyday since i bought it. But, Ambition is still in very good condition and I dont think I will sell it any sooner.

My one and only bike is Caliber. It was the second generation one, and existed only briefly, along with Croma. Soon, both were discontinued in favour of 115 (hoodibaba).
My mother gifted this bike to me on 26th February 2002, two days before my 19th birthday, when I was my 3rd year engineering.

I have done about 45000 km now. No problems whatsoever! Once I got it to Bangalore, I always got it serviced at Castrol Bike Zone in Adugodi. But ever since I got my car and moved to the outskirts of the city some 3 years ago, the bike sees the road only once a week or so. The battery has been dead for over a year now. May be that's why it needs at least 10 kicks to start. I must get it serviced and repaired soon :-(

My first bike that I rode and owned (still with me till date) is the RX 100. I learnt to drive on her and cost me many a bruised knuckle and ankle. Was and still is a dream to drive, superb power and acceleration, have done 110 kmph on highway and lots of stunts that teenagers do at that age. I still ride her but quite sedately in comparison, being a family man now, though she beckons me often to let her loose. Ah, the good old days!

I learned bike riding with Yezdi. It was really huge for my size but thankfully my brother was there to teach me.
I purchased my own first bike Yamaha RX100 in college.

The bike which i rode for the first time was the first generation Bajaj Pulsar with the round headlights. Amazing pickup and the exhaust note was too good. Honed my riding skills on a Hero Honda CD100SS and ended up owning a Hero Honda Hunk.

Had a Honda Dio when I had a gearless license. My first bike was (and is) the TVS Apache RTR 180 ABS. Have done ~3000 kms in 2 months with a 750km round trip to Mahabaleshwar.

Here is the ownership review of the same: http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/motorb...ite-devil.html (TVS Apache 180 ABS - The White Devil)

Talk about sailing in the same boat My story was ditto...except that I sold the shogun and gave away the RD as a gift to my younger brother. Now I miss the RD and for obvious reasons i can't take it back from my younger bro and neither can i afford a replacement

My first bike was Pulsar 150cc DTSi in 2003. It was one of the newer one at that time. I had just started college and it was my birthday gift from my parents.

Cherished it for 8 years and is now sold.
