    Default A sensible choice?

    A coworker of mine put a down payment on this bike, a Yamaha(India) Gladiator SS. Having some time to kill, before we head to the beach, i decided to check up on the bike. I think he has made a sensible choice. What do you think?. The bike will cost him Rs. 51,240.00 on the road everything included. He chose the red color bike.

    I walk into the office and i find out that another coworker , Bharath,has bought a new bike, a Bajaj Pulsar 200!. What's with these kids nowadays?. They want to change models every two years, it seems, over here!!. I did't carry my phone cam with me, but i will take some pics of the bike and post pics for you guys. The Gladiator SS cost 50G but the Pulsar is 25,000 more!. More horespower too!.I like the Gladiator design better, though. More understated and classy.
