That was his favorite. Especially the black ones. The roar of its engine stood out even in the bazaar. It wasn't the noisiest bike. But the roar had an authority. The design was simple and clean. It had no fat in its belly. Only the most necessary curves were present. The rest were straight lines. Like a gymnast. There was the well endowed Enfield bullet too. Maami like. It was an easier choice between the two. Pair the black RX 100 with a kathar veshti and kathar sattai. You get an impressive combination. The disguised fury of the RX with the clear boastfulness of kathar. He waited till he got his first salary to get one of his own. Yamaha discontinued the RX by then. He settled for the Maami.

I guess RX 100 will remain as one of the best bikes in India for some time.

@Arasan, check the label - fiction.

@sankar, yeah, its position is almost uncontended.

I think even Seeni will agree MAX 100R is a good bike...he knows how to drive Max 100 R without petrol.

Key Problem, Oh man I remember that horrible incident..

Max 100 R....Grrrrr....Appa ennaku senju vitta motha bike....naan Red Splendour (Kadhalukku Mariyadhai Vijay influence..) kaaga dream pottu kittu irunthaen...but vandathu Max 100 R...but no worries its a reliable bike!

Max 100R is my favourite. Compact, Good Control, Stable, Zooming, its well known for its unique engine noice :)-

Maami ??

Is that pulsar?

MAX 100R - most junkest bike that I have driven ever. (sorry Barani -unnoda bike super. arasa, unnudhum thaan. Both are exceptional).

RX 100 - Arasa, is that the one we met with accident while going for NCC work?

Dams used to drive an RX 100 that was bought a 100 years ago. Still it was running good. I guess Dams would never have run out of GAS for his bike. (dams indha blog padikka mattan-la?)

Seeni, that was Hero Honda CD 100.

Namma college la yaaruda MAX 100R vachu irunthathu.....Mmmmm let me think.....

Arasa, Veera also had Max100r

 
On 10:06 AM , Baranidharan said...

Seeni, dont worry I agree with you. Max100r is good for above 40. Good Mileage and less maintenance. My favorite is Pulsar

I hate pulsar too. somehow I was not very competent in riding that bike. I wanted to own CBZ. I owned Hero Honda Splendor. I liked that bike except for the stupid head light. TVS 50's head light is better than Hero Honda Splendor's.

It's been almost 2 yrs since I drove a bike. Now I am afrid to drive a bike. Afraid of accidents. :)

I am longing to go for an bike ride in chennai ECR road.....

This time I will do It!

 
On 5:13 PM , Siva said...

@ Barani, so you are above 40 ?

@ Arasa, Barani implies you are above 40 too. BTW, What is 'is that pulsar' ?

RX 100 is the best.

 
On 8:10 PM , Baranidharan said...

Siva naan unakku suggest pannaen :-)

 
On 8:14 PM , Baranidharan said...

Above 40, no siva the context was different. Myself and Arasa had Max100R, so just marketing. My favorite was Pulsar (Keep your balls safe)

 
On 8:20 PM , Baranidharan said...

Main reason behind liking Pulsar is for my height & weight it is apt. (do you know most women like pulsar as per mottar vikatan). Miss arichu macchi

I liked Pulsar too :)- As Barani rightly mentioned you need to take additional precautions...

I think that is the reason why the number of mails in our egroup has reduced a lot. we are doing 'mokkai' in blog comments itself., :)

 
On 6:45 PM , Siva said...

ok ennakku vayasagiduchu. ilanchingamme, nee sollu .. What is the link between the elevated back and Indian girls ?

To get a lift so that the girls can easily strangle the driver ?
