    This bike came to my life while I was in my 4th standard. One day after class, when I reached home, this beauty was lying proudly in our porch. I still remember those days, when people used to eye her enviously while on roads (not many in our place had bikes then). Now things have changed a lot, a 97.2cc, 7 Bhp bike is nothing among Pulsars and R15s ruling the roads, and as a young lad, me too is waiting for my new bike. Still she remains my princess.

    The first time I had my hands on her was when I was in my 6th With dad controlling everything and me just handling. To be frank, it was one of the most intimate moments with my dad, without even mom knowing about it. It took 4 more years for me to get her keys officially (Dad was adamant I cant have her till I turn 15).

    My first single ride on her was to the nearby temple. She responded well, even though I was not an experienced rider. Except a few turn offs due to wrong gears, rest all was fun. Years passed, and we got along so well, that I could ride her better than my dad. I used to travel to school on her often. The shining steel parts differentiated her from other bikes around, most of them which were new generation fibre-bodied bikes.

    Her first crash from me was when I was in my 12th. One day, while trying to push her to her limits, I crashed her into a pot-hole. I suffered some minor injuries on hands and knees along with a bruised face. The whole front cluster of the bike was destroyed. However, after a proper service, I was able to bring her back to her normal.

    In the nine years of her ownership, we changed the front fork once (oil seal Problem), Headlight cluster thrice (twice crashed by dad), Meter console (twice), Tank (because of leak), Both the rims and the rear mud guard (rusting), Clutch disc etc. She is well maintained without even missing a single service (1500kms).

    Last time when I talked to dad, he had indicated an oil leak from the gear box, and a rusted saree guard, which I hope have been rectified. Waiting to go home and take her out for a spin again, but sad that itll take 3 more months to get a vacation. More pictures soon. Give me your feed backs on my babe

    Touchy! Do you refer to IT as a she because of the gearbox whines?

    Whats with you guys calling rides as shez?

    Some clarity is the need of the hour for those calling their bikes a she! Even worse calling it a him!

    Yeah right go ride him

    A bike is a machine, Show some respect guys, there is no she or he to it.


    Anyways, its nice of you to share old memories esp from 4th std.

    It depends. You normally tend to love a she. The love for your bike is similar to ur love for gf. U love it that hard!! so may be that's why u call a bike a she.

    But if you and ur bike are like brothers in arms may be u could call "him" a he

    btw i think this discussion is kind of OT. U could try starting a new thread with poll to discuss the "sheness", "heness" or "itness" of a bike

    It's an emotional attachment. Like Karthik said, and yes It should be discussed , Atleast we can get some cool opinions and some weird ideas...

    For most of us, anything that we grip between our thighs is a 'she'.
