Took out my bike again today. I use it quite often these days.
Today however, after a year I clicked its pictures.

Hi,
These pictures do bring back memories of my college days in Pune 1987-89. The RX100 ruled the roads then, the only competitors being the Hero Honda CD100, Ind Suzuki and the RTZs.

I learned to ride the bike on an RX100 ( a red one...!!!!) and thus have nostalgic feelings about it. Though I could never own one then. But have managed to get my hands on one of my friends bike now after 20 years as he is out of town and believe me,.....its still an experience to ride one even now.

A tribute to my Yamaha RX 100 appeared in The Hitavada, Nagpur on 27/11/2001 entitled "My Trustworthy Companion". I would like to proudly proclaim that even 14 years after writing this "Middle", the bike is still as trustworthy like before and is with me. Its into its 25th year now.

The RX 100 front tyres (2.50 X 18) are in short supply according to tyre retailers. A few low profile makes are available in the market. The manufacturers like MRF and Ceat make such tyres after receiving orders for adequate numbers from their dealers, once in a while.

The tyre size 2.75 X 18 has become universal for the new breed of lighter bikes as of now. This is the standard size for the RX 100 rear tyres. Many including me have upgraded to the tyre size 3.00 X 18 for the rear.

The two stroke lube oils are also becoming rare in the market. Its 4T oil everywhere.

Even the original 6 V electricals of the RX 100 is tough to power with a shortage of the 6 V batteries , that are very rare. I have upgraded to the 12 V electricals and the upgradation is working very well since about ten years.

Meanwhile some pictures of my 1990 bike, nowadays not much used ! Needs lots of TLC now.
