My first one was the no problem bike - Samurai. Had it for around 4 years and then bought the Pulsar 1st generation. Sold it in 3 months as I was going abroad for a couple of years. Came back and bought a current generation pulsar. I would rate Suzuki Samurai the best in performance and reliability. These days getting some of the Pulsar spares are so tough.

You really dont have to GTO. The KH was an awesome auto tranny scooter. I still have one. The suspension, braking, lights are its major let downs.

1. a Yellow Bajaj Super :( .. dad got a used one for me when I was in college. Friends used to ask 'Where are you going with this pregnant woman?')
2. RX 100 A great mobike. Got it after lot of cribs back home
3. HH Sleek - my mistake with used vehicles. Got it months after I got into my first job - paid for the impatience. Was a really bad one
4. RX 135 (Can' put more smiley's) - an awesome mobike - had to sell it off when I went for higher studies

1. Ind-Suzuki: (Was incidentally the 2nd Ind-Suzuki to be sold in Kerala
2. Yamaha RX100: This was totalled in an accident
3. Yamaha RX100: Got Stolen, Never Recovered
4. Yamaha RD350 : Enjoyed the brute to the hilt but finally gifted it to my cousin; could not stand an RD350 being left unused after I graduated to cars
5. Suzuki Shogun: Purchased it to be a no non-sense bike to fill the void left by RD, but lost interest very soon, Sold it off to an eager-beaver.

Present Scenario: No bikes; On a constant battle with myself to justify the purchase of a Litre-Class bike. Some day the heart will win over the mind ;-)

My first was my grandpa's Luna TFR which I used for 2 years, since I had a 50cc DL for 2 years before I got a geared one. Later bought a RX, learnt properly to ride on it. Still have both
