Bajaj CT100 Motorcycle Ownership Experience


I am not ashamed to say that I was not among fast machines and hot girls during my teenage years. My father was very caring. He was afraid that I will mess up with a fast bike if he bought me one during my college days. I didn’t care to learn about the models of bikes and cars and it’s features. At the time of buying this Bajaj CT100 motor cycle , I had no opinion about what bike i should ride. So we just bought some entry level bike.But now i am much interested in motorbiking and have a heart to adore a real fast machine on road.

I bought it in 2006.It was billed about Rs 35000 then. It was a low cost option comparing similar models of hero Honda and the rest.  I did proper maintenance that year but in 2007 I didn’t care the bike well. As a result of it, the mileage decreased from about 70 kmpl to about 50 kmpl. The silencer of the bike showed signs of rusting in 2009.In 2009 I got it welded at nearest bajaj service center.So again the milage went up to about 65 kmpl.But the aesthetics were very poor.The silencer made it look 10 years more.

From mid 2009 to may 2010, it was used daily for commuting to my gym. During the period of may 2010 to aug 2010, I skipped on visiting gym and so the bike was waiting for a rider.I usually service the bike every six months.Last couple of services were at the nearest bajaj service center and was below expectation.
So this time I get it serviced by an experienced mechanic  who ran a small bike clinic named “SPEED” in Padanilam. This guy has experience working in company/ dealer service centre. Silencer was again a problem. Rust is all over in it.So I am choosing to replace it after realizing that BAJAJ BIKES are having poor resale value and are made up of poor quality materials that cannot even last TWO YEARS.

The culprit is the poor consumer who are not educated through the user guide about how to maintain the vehicle well. The mechanic  is advising me to put engine oil or used waste engine oil through the rear end of the silencer. Soon it will drip to the floor from somewhere beneath the foot brakes.When you start the engine and provide throttle, the oil gets sprayed in the interior part of the silencer.Again when you are getting your motorcycle washed in a service center, water gets in to the silencer, stays there and causes rusting and disintegration. A rusted silencer = disastrous FE [mileage].So do not forget to oil it after a professional bike wash.

Prospective bajaj bike owners should note that today morning I bought a new silencer from bajaj service centre kayamkulam [KAIRALI BAJAJ] for Rs 2413.Bajaj is in the business of selling bikes that has a silencer that will self-destruct  even within  their warranty period.  Other than that, the bike is good and does not cost you much for maintenance. It’s silencer is costlier comparing to that of hero Honda bikes. My CT100 has it meters at 16600 km after 4 years of usage.

I lost my voter id card issued by the election commission of india. I lost it along with the driving license in 2007. I took Duplicate Driving Licence from the same RTO in 2008.Now I have been postponing the efforts to take duplication voters id card due to various reasons. One election came in between and election people were giving duplicates but I didn’t went. Now local body election happens in Kerala. So I got an information that the election department at the Tehsil (Taluk) office is starting to issue duplicate voter id cards from 08.10.2010.So I drove to mavelikkara  yesterterday  in my Astar and it was raining heavily. I reached there and find a long queue of people.Since I have completed the form before hand, I just need to find my card id number and put the data and place in it.A person employed there took my application form and he checked the number of my family member in the kiosk in the same room. The kiosk terminal didn’t showed my number. So he forwarded my application

Generate your online e-aadhaar card easily

Aadhaar Demystified   Aadhaar ,meaning foundation in indian languages, has become a hall of shame  or an object of inconvenience for the common man (aam aadmi). Despite a prominent personality like Mr. Nandan Nilekani at it's helm, India's aadhaar project is an epic fail. UIDAI or unique Identification Authority of India is a ghost body created by the central government.It is yet to get complete legal and constitutional status to discriminate people by providing gas subsidy {LPG subsidy for domestic use} only to aadhaar holders. Why India needed an ID System? India was in the dark about it's own citizen.Infiltration from Bangladesh, Pakistan and Srilanka happens all the time.Politicians provide illegal immigrants (a large chunk are run away criminals and terrorists) with indian election id cards inexhange of votes / money. Some crooks were eating up subsidies designed to reach deserving common man [aam aadmi] by forging fake documents and multiple accounts.
