I suppose this is a first ownership report about a bike.
Well, I am posting my initial ownership report and not my bike review. I am not sure whether its in the right section.
When I decided to buy a bike, the one and only option came to my mind was Unicorn.
I went to Peeyem Honda in Kannur and asked the details about the bike even though I knew every specification except the price. I asked the guy for a test drive, but I didnt get as the TD vehicle was not there. He promised to call me the next day and get me the test drive. The next day, I expected for the call. But no one called me. After two days, I called him and asked him about my test drive. He said, he tried calling me and I was in out of coverage area.
So I decided not to make the booking through him. After two weeks, I went to show room again and contacted a girl there to go through the booking. I paid 1000 Rs as the booking price and she told me that it'll take around two months for the bike to arrive. And I have to make the full payment 20 days before deliver.I agreed and asked her for a test drive, she gave me the keys of the bike and asked me to be careful. I was surprised. No one from there was coming with me. So I took my friend with me and went to my home which is 5 km away from there. And returned the keys to her and thanked her.
On 2008 November 25th, I paid the Ex-Showroom amount for the bike and they said that it'll take around 20 days for the bike to arrive. On 4th December 2008, I got a call from my home saying that the show room people have called to inform that the bike has arrived. I was in Bangalore at that time, and on hearing this I have started for searching trains and buses. Atlast I found a train but there was no reservation.
I decided to go by General compartment. I reached there next day and on 10th, I submitted the required documents for registration. Atlast, I got my Wing on 11th December 2008.
