    Sad to know that. How could you even leave..

    Very true on the ratings.

    Ride it as sanely as possible, also take breaks say after 45- 50 mins of continuous riding.

    Yep, the seats are very comfortable after sitting(when compared to how it looks).

    The power & TOP Speed is far better when compared to "JUST" being a 150 cc.

    Ride safe, and read the manual please.[/QUOTE]


    ya the seat is good, but it should have been little more softer. mom too sat on the bike but she had worn other dress other then saree { she vowed she ll never sit behind when she is in saree } but she didnt complain abt the seat, the only minor problem was gettin up n down from the bike :P

    ^^^^ Totally correct. Though I make it a point never to double, the one or two instances where I had a pillion remarked that the seat position and foot-peg position was spot on. Except for the hard part of throwing the leg over the seat and lack of grab rail during sudden burst of acceleration, pillions are fine with this bike.

    and also i would like to add one more thing, people feel that they cant sit properly because of the too much gap between the rider and the pillion. now to make my pillion comfortable { in this case my mom and my Gf} i was wearing a bag{ which i have most of the times coz i carry some stuffs with me} which made them comfortable to hold on to and reduce that gap in between us. :P
    well it will help in case if a guy sits behind you would want him to grab you when you brake lol

    I'm facing a small vibration on the handle at 120kmph+ . When I looked in the kit, the two screws under the panel where R15 is written were nearly falling off... Do we need to tighten them regularly..??

    no no i was referring to pillion riders feeling uncomfortable sitting behind, not me. and since they are not familiar or used to sitting on such bikes it is important to make them feel comfortable first then just taking them on the ride and they will never sit again :P and thanks for the link but i know how to carry a pillion

    Have some doubts regarding the coolant!
    They clean chain, lube it, check for tension.
    Replace coolant, though i forgot at what frequency.
    Replace oil, oil filter.
    Clean Air filter as normal operation.

    Rest few km/time dependent check ups.

    Hmm, that should not occur, tighten them up and point during next service.

    ^^^ @ Ron Sly... all I can say is that you should go through the link, it answers some of the problems that your pillions are facing including how to get on and off the bike. Also understand that a pillion is not a 'add-on' as viewed by most people but a part of the bike. The bike's dynamics change substantially with the pillion abroad.

    @ nastrofaction... it is a misconception that most people have that pillion rests his hands on the tank all the time during the ride... the pillion puts (braces) his/her hand on the tank when he/she sees that the rider is going brake, thus preventing him/her from pushing into the riders back upsetting the rider's balance....

    Meant the same, I should have been more detailed.

    Though, I personally don't prefer pillions on rides, they got to be as attentive as you and understand the ride and the riders action reaction well so they end up helping the pull and push not working against it.
    Which happens.
    Ride On,
    Akshat
