I learnt riding on my Bajaj Chetak 12V. Tried to perfect Motorcycles by riding Yamaha RX-100 and Kawasaki 4S Champion.

Cars - M-800 and Tata Indica DLS (prior to V2)

It will be nice to know as to on which set of wheels you learnt yours.

The bike does not define you, but the actions you perform while on the bike do.

My first bike


And managed to get fully airborne the second day itself (speedbreaker I did not see at night, courtesy the wonderful stock lighting) but the landing was good.

Learnt riding on a P180 (my first bike)... Luckily it could handle many falls...

Driving on a Maruti Esteem... It had a gem of an engine...
I like 'em Naked.

OK.. I started off on a 1986 Kinetic Honda initially.. I learned to ride a geared 2-wheeler on my 2003 Kawasaki Bajaj Caliber 115(Hoodibaba Caliber).

Learning to drive happened on a Driving school's M800 + own M800. Stopped going to Driving school on day 10 :P.

I learnt how to ride on an extremely embarrassing RMI full size ladies' bicycle. Had to ride it for some years, as my dad won't get me anything better :P. Back in the day, I felt like robbing one of my friends' of their super cool Hero Ranger ATBs.

The first motorized machine I rode was again a self-propelled equivalent of the RMI bicycle - a LUNA TFR, soon to replaced by a much superior LUNA Super. Trust me I really was a bully's delight.  

Life refused to get better, as my next upgrade was a real rickety, discolored and mercilessly welded Priya 150 scooter.

Real riding started off with friends' borrowed splendors and later with owned Suzuki Fiero

My love for two wheels is older than most members here. Yeah, I am old!  

I always had a cycle. Though the first cycle which I got as 'mine' was branded something like a Sunshine or something. The one with a full long seat. Loved it too the hilt. My grandma gave it me on my 8th Bday.

First motorised two wheeler was a Hero Majestic Pacer. My brother got it when he was in Class IX  (I was in VI) and needed one to go to tuitions (we lived outside the city). Learned on it when I was in VII and would sometimes sneak out to ride it. My brother would get angry for 'wasting' petrol for the sake of just riding it! :P Though I used to curse him for not getting the Hero Puch! He could not put it on stand plus since it lacked paddles, everyone thought it would not be good if it broke mid way. Later he got a scooter (LML vespa) and I would ride that too.

My first new 'bike' was a Yamaha RXG which is still there at my parent's place.

First bike which I bought myself was a Pulsar 180 DTSi.

09- HH Sleek- My first officially mine Bike (previously owned by Maternal Uncle), And the one that opened up the world of touring to me.
10- HH Splendor- (This one replaced the Sleek), Man do i miss this Bike. Did many many Mumbai Pune Runs on this one.
11- Yezdi Classic- My First Bike which i bought from my own Salary. Cost me 5000/= buy, and close to 4000/= in repairs and restoration :). I had tried to get my hands on my Uncles Yezdi, but came to know a bit too late, that he had already sold it off :D
12- HMSI Unicorn- My Current Ride (The Second and most satisfying Bike From my Own Salary :D )

01- Tempo Trax- What a Start. Belonged to my Maternal Aunt (yup you read it correct, my aunt had a Tempo Trax). First Lesson was Reversing, and Parking :)
02- Premier Padmini- Belonged to my Jijaji. Sister Taught me to Drive that Historical Monument
03- M800- My Jijaji's Current Drive (replace the Aging Padmini).
04- M800- From the Driving School. I joined it just for the Formalities, and Speedy License Procedures. I was driving pretty well for a beginner by then.
05- WagonR- My Current Drive (Also From my Salary :D :D).

That is a list of vehicles I have managed to get my hands on. Not to mention another Dozens of Different Bikes while doing my In-Plant Training for College, at Mane Automobiles, Pune, and Sai Service, Pune. Mane Automobiles was a dream come true, as the Father Serviced, Mostly Yezdis, Zundapps, BSA, RE, and the likes, while the Son took care of the Regular chotu motu bikes, like HH, Bajaj, TVS etc. etc. Sai Service, was also cool, but never got to Test ride any bike out of the Gates, (Us trainees were not trustworthy :P ) but managed to get my hands dirty within the Compound Gates.
