Mine was Splendor - 1999. Drove it for 5 years. Was still good with 64K on the odo. Mostly 65+ in Bangalore. Decided to sell when I bought Bullet. Electra is still going strong with 70k on the odo

My first motorized 2 wheeler was a Luna, a 50 cc moped. Had this for a few years.
Then moved to a Lambretta scooter (used to scare myself riding this baby).
Sold that and got a Bajaj Super scooter (touched 80 on the speedo the day we got it in Daman, still have it).
Then after much pestering got a '84 (or was it '87, memory escapes me) model Hero Honda CD100 in '92, amazing machine at that time. Restored it lovingly and would get many appreciating glances on the way to college and it was super fuel efficient as well. I still remember filling petrol worth 20 rs (a litre would cost 19.27 ) and it would last me for a week. Sold it in '96.
Then I got the power bug and bought a 2 month used Shogun from a Parsi in '97 and those were the best days of my life. The smells, sound, nostalgia, Still love that bike, used the bike for around 5 years and sold it in 2001 and then got my current steed, a classic Pulsar 180.
Was a fool to sell the Shoki (Shogun, i had named it even) for the Pulsar.
Thats my tale thus far. Next stop, want a proper upgrade. Was tempted to got for the 220 but I doubt I'd be buying a Bajaj again (Ninja 250 will be the exception).

dad owned a rajdoot when i was in school (left kick, right brake) and then dad upgraded to a bullet (rigt kick, left brake) and i had the little rounds of the area where i lived. Then i got my BSA Mach 1 in 10th. Rode a KA registered Kinetic Honda in Mumbai for almost 7 years, bought my bajaj pulsar 150 dtsi in 2003 - sold it off in 2007 and now am completely confused about what to buy...
