  • How I found my love!

    Yeah.. Oh it just slipped over my mind to tell about my love.. I am not sure when & how this happened, was just a sudden strike of cupid some 4 years back...
    I used to be with her everyday, started my day with her & ended my evening... Even was with me for entire nights without any hesitation with just one intention: To be with me. She always took my care so much, never realized was this a love.
    Always made sure i reach my destiny on proper times & safely.. Use to be proud to stand with her in the crowd getting an attention & respect.
    Always did what I wanted no matter how painful it was for her to do that.. Even got hurted due to mine or somebody elses mistakes, but never put me away, always made an effort of seeing me happy by standing back smilingly..

    Never made me feel less in front of the rivalry crowd.. Stood always like a shield promising me "I am always there"
    I started noticing & realized finally i couldnt spend my day without watching her, without spending time with her & hence concluded i loved her & cannot stay away from her.. I love her..
    So today I dont have any hindrances in revealing the most valuable thing in my life, which means a lot to me, important than any other thing in my life, thats my bike 'karizma'.. yeah dont be astonished.. it is indeed..!! (please bare my insanity)

    I do remember my time when my first bike was of automatic gears(Activa) just b'coz i lacked the experience of riding bike.. But lately i started feeling that lack of something in my life & passion, suddenly just in 6 months i decided to buy a bike..
    I was badly confused, started with Unicorn without any knowledge just trusting words.. Still I couldnt get that feeling of satisfaction & completeness so i thought of something else which was CBZ-Xtreme.. Somehow i was not impressed by its looks though still didnt had much knowledge about judging a good bike & understanding the features...
    Then there was a flash over my face & saw this almighty incredible machine.. didnt knew much about it.. But suddenly got that feeling of happiness & without any second thought just banged at the dealers desk & booked it..
    Finally the best day came, when i was ready to get my darling, my own karizma..vow.. what a feeling it was..
    me not being experienced about driving a bike with gears, my friend rode it for me... Immediately started knowing the gear patterns, controlling, handling, braking(which was totally new for me).. Loosing my patience i decided to take it to my office on my own, no matter whatever it takes but will ensure it doesnt falls or touches any1.. It was all new day for me coming out with this bike on the way to my office (to andheri, lokhandwala).. Got myself in middle of the traffic, was little panic, nervous but my bike encouraged me with its brightened looks saying me "Dont worry U can do it..!!"
    Was struggling changing gears on time, many times my bike turned off due to amateurish control over releasing the clutch.. But she was as freshly ready as before.. Faced a hard time balancing my bike while braking.. as the time passed the bike helped me gaining the acquaintance over the machine by its significant smoothness & unbeatable pickup.. First 2-3 days I had little hard time, but my bike always motivated me to do it again.. Had an amazing feeling to notice it being an eye catcher, truly stunning beauty..
    Everyday i drove my bike more confidently than the earlier day,.. Was an awesome feeling to drive on the roads so smoothly like the almighty..!!
    At times there where really critical problem like not at all taking any pickup, screwed up my clutch plates.. Couldnt resist that suffering on the bike, felt very bad about it.. I remember me taking leaves to office just to make sure it gets fixed from the service centres.. There had been many such days, I have taken leaves from my office, even had a pay cut couple of times; but didnt had any regret for the purpose i am doing it.
    Even met with an accident & had tears in my eyes not to see my wounded elbow or knee or bones, but to find my bikes part in pieces... I remember how i had busted the car driver who suddenly took a turn on the U-junction & hit the bike at the tail..
    Immediately took it to the nearest best garage, & repeatedly insisted the service guy to make sure it gets back to original & each components starts functioning as smooth as before.. Had a bill of 7000 but was totally worthwhile when i saw it standing like new in front of me expressing "I am fine". It was back to a new condition, ready to rock.. Didnt even mind handing good tip to the mechanics..
    This bibliography about my bike will never end, but i have to bring it to a pause not stop. Will definately extend it more with my more feelings & continue my love towards this magnificient machine
    Now am more cautious, more confident.. And yes my bike has made me a good rider.. Am in deeply love with it..!!
    .... I will rather ride my Bike thinking about God, then sitting in a Temple thinking about my Bike.. ..

                    Wonder why people refer their machine as "Her/She".
                    If some refer to it as "Him/He", can he be termed gay?

                    Agreed, bikes can be fussy as hell. I know. I own a car too, its like a dog, no fuss. But believe me, there are girls who can turn your world upside down .

                      Is that a Compliment or a Comment for girls??
                      Coz I had experienced both..the commented one and the complimented one.
                      Belive me the complimented one can make your world diffrent.
                      And no comments about commented one!
                      Enuf ots..
                      Nice writeup man!
                      Keep it flowing in,..[if I hadnt Said it twice!]

                          Really nice writeup Rachit. It reminds me of my Fiero F2, which I didn't want in the 1st place (always wanted the Classic CBZ), hated her for the 1st few years, then suddenly started realizing how faithful she had been throughout the 5 years, in various conditions, cities, never failing me...&then I started restoring her&even after getting my R15 I love her like anything!
                          Spoken from the heart! Only a biker knows the connection he has with his bike.
                          Wishing you many more years of miles&smiles with your beloved.
                          Quench my thirst with gasoline!
