    Guys, hureeeey!!!
    Finally I got my dream bike yesterday. It is a black Hero Impulse. I am an adventurous person and love off roading. I have even built a Jeep and did many real offroading for two years before I sell her.

    So now I am the second XBHPian who own Impulse and first one to post ownership experience about this bike on this thread . My first hand experience is that the overall riding position is too good, very comfortable. Also The seddle height is really so much as that you feel like if you are on an "SUV" Bike .

    Many guys stoped me and asked me if I bougth the bike from Jaipur (where it was available since more than two weeks) since mine is the first Impulse in town and the dealers here are not giving delivery to anybody else for a next few days (see the story here http://www.xbhp.com/talkies/news/20256-hero-motocorp-prices-impulse-rs-66-800-a-35.html#post748031)

    I covered 90 KM yesterday on the bike which includes some Kachcha road and I am very much impressed by the suspension of the bike. Speed breakers are no more pain in your axx instead they add fun in your ride, and Kachcha roads spice in your life. So finally there is a bike which I can ride in my Jeep driving style (hard way on kachcha road).


    Other updates...

    1. After 60 KM, I got the engine oil changed.
    2. Saree guard removed.
    3. Added front wheel U lock fitted, the orange reflectors in the sides had to be moved a bit.
    4. One more horn added, the OEM one is like moped. I like the Pulser kind of twin horn as they are loud and clear.
