New headlight bulb for my 200NS

Just changed my headlight bulb to the new Philips X-treme Vision 130% bulb and noticed an immediate improvement in light throw compared to stock bulb. It was a direct replacement of the stock bulb. No modifications required and LTA-friendly. Now night time swee swee bright bright! Inexpensive DIY project…

Silly Rookie Mistake!

It was a surreal moment, like living a dream. Finally got my 2B, got myself the 200NS and went riding this morning – first actual ride. Did a silly rookie mistake. The┬áPulsar 200NS is a carbourated bike. Last night, when I got home, I turned the fuel petcock to the OFF position. This morning, I forgot all about that, started the bike, and went riding. Managed to get about a kilometer or so from home and stalled the bike at a traffic light junction!! Thank goodness the bike didn’t stall when i was in the middle of riding. Tried to start the bike and it wouldn’t start. Only after a couple of seconds, I remembered about the fuel petcock and turned it back ON. So malu. Hahaha…

But all that said, riding is FUN!

So I’ve been monitoring the market prices and definitely know that this was a decently good deal. Of course, if there were any hidden gremlins within the bike, I wouldn’t get to know until after taking ownership. And so I gently reminded Continue reading “I got myself a bike! Bajaj Pulsar 200NS”

I got my Class 2B License!

Yeah! After 3 months and 4 days, passed on my first attempt! Just got home after a gruelling day. Completed the mandatory Expressway Familiarisation Course and had to wait for quite a while for license application (long queue at TP office). But in any case, FINALLY!!…. hahah…

Actually, passing rate today was quite high – 39 passed in the class of about 50 people. That’s almost 80% of the class!

Can’t wait to go bike shopping now!
