We always use terms like “This is guy’s thing” or “This is girl’s thing”, this is not to discriminate what boys can do and what girls can do. No it is just the way boys and girl relate or react to a certain thing. Boys will go certain way and girls another. Biking or Bikes is one of those Guy’s thing.
Every man at least once goes through such phase of life when he feels that owning a bike is must, mostly when you are in college. Why is that? Because may be we feel more passionate, adventures, wild at that time of life. And Bike is certainly more adventures than driving a car. Riding a bike gives you a feeling of freedom, when you are racing on the road, overtaking all the vehicles in your way. You feel you’re top of the world. And then there is this glamour attached to the bike, you automatically gain a image of a “Macho man”, you get priority in girls list etc. etc.
Every one of us one point of time has dream that he is riding his bike at full speed, with his girlfriend at the backseat. She is holding on to him. She is talking sweet, naughty things in his ears. And then every time he race the bike or there are speed-breakers, potholes on road he can feel her pounding on his back and he feels that the road should never end. Heavenly feeling isn’t it? It is more for experiencing yourself; it can not be explained in words. Some of us went on to buy a bike and fulfill their dreams. Some of us can’t, they just watch others and sigh agonizingly.
One of my friend just bought a bike “Avenger”, It took us 2-3 months to zeroing on it. To start with we were really naive about bike. Only thing we knew was we want to buy a bike; but we were very much confused which bike should go for. “Karizma” and “Pulser” was our first choice but that only because we have seen lot of them on road and of course there is lot of advertisement for them. When we start inquiring different people for there inputs, they start bombarding us with terms like 150cc, 200cc, mileage, average, etc. etc.
And we were very much unaware of these terms that time.
So we found out first what does these terms means and how will they affect our choice of bike.
Let’s discuss this next time……
