Two wheeler Review ,TVS wego or Honda activa or Scooty Streak or Mahindra Duro


So my SCOOTER GURU had her exams , she was not available…Hmmm…..
Anyways I was in mode of searching for my perfect 2 wheeler…
So I compared three heavy duty scooters with best options and service and sales and price and features and technical specs….and the Styling…Didnt go for scooty…How does it matter 96 kgs or 110kg…both are equal for a non muscular person…. , ha ha ha , so better take a sturdy metal body and planted one …

They were Mahindra Duro , Honda Activa and the Brand new launched TVS Wego …..

Mahindra Duro was first to go off the list … need not even discuss the things … Not much impact on market over Honda…Whereas Wego has already started eating the share of Activa…

Styling :TVS the winner , modern and unisex design …Edgy…Sharp cuts…Activa horrible looks even the new refresh…But the most oldest and most selling in market…

Engine wise : Activa and TVS both are equally good.TVS Riding without a pillion, I felt that the scooter had a decent level of pickup and acceleration;

Body : Both Metal body…and heavy for that planted feeling on the road…

Wheels : TVS has bigger and alloy wheels of 12 ” and broader too than Activa or duro…That is 90/90-12…( this numbering, well you need to understand what it means..check on web..Its just I know)
Better manoeuvring ..

Balance : Definitely Wego , it has a Body balance Tech…Unlike Activa that wobbles with 2 riders.

Tyres : here Activa wins , it has the tuff-up tyres that is puncture resistance , where in case of puncture a chemical is released to stop the puncture there and then itself , not with Wego….

Price :Rates are same for Activa and Wego , but Wego is somewhat cheaper once we go for accessories , as Most of the accessories are free with Wego…

Sales : No wait for Wego where as Activa sales people are rude and xyz….

Service : Servicing is cheaper for TVS, supposedly…

Features : easy center stand , I love it in Wego…
other features : <o:p></o:p>

  • Easy Slide Stand<o:p></o:p>
  • 12 Inch alloy wheels<o:p></o:p>
  • Telescopic suspension in front<o:p></o:p>
  • LED tail lamp with optical glow<o:p></o:p>
  • Balancing features like Font-side center of gravity<o:p></o:p>
  • short turning radius

TVS doesn’t mention low noise engine remarkable characteristic in any of the ads of the Wego, the company seems to follow a policy of ‘Promise less, Deliver more’. it was really hard to compare it to my GURU’s Honda Activa I rode later that day simply because of the lack of engine noise.

The Verdict: The Wego is definitely an impressive machine; it’s got some really appealing looks especially in that White color( ofcourse which I bought), sporty handling, good ride comfort, lots of storage space, mileage, and best of all, refinement.It is one of the best in it 110CC class…

So I chose TVS WEGO….Here “WeGo“…………..Vroom ….Vrooom….

How to check Pure Silk Purity…


Hi Folks ,

Yesterday I went to Chickpet , Bangalore for Pure silk Saree…

I went to all big to small shops with Silk mark…

My experience was horrible for Kanjeevaram Pure Silk…

I was astonished to see that non of the shops had traditional Kanjeevaram…All had new designer sarees…..

When I started having a look at Kanjeevaram Sarees at any shop they showed in art silk/ashna silk…and called it 100% pure silk….When I asked them to do the litmus test that is take a thread from warp and weft and burn it to see it is pure silk or not … all the sarees failed fully or partially either weft was not real silk or warp was not real silk and all the shops serially I went thru and they apologized or before the test itself said sorry that will be mixed silk…Some didnt allow the test and said all the shops sell same things …(that is true) and hence ours is pure silk ……..

I was shocked…

Except for Rs 6000 and above they gave pure silk… that too some of them were again mixed or fake…

I remember 6 yrs back when I didnt know how to figure out pure silk..which I know by now …(Thanks to Silk Board Info to customers…)..They didnt cheat except for Cauvery(Mysore) Emporium…They gave me art silk…Goons.. They used different names like resham,art silk,ashna,simple silk, or they say it is starched and will become soft in sometime…to confuse customers..They also swear for the purity..They misuse their license of SILKMARK…BEWARE….

OK so I got 2 sarees…he checked them , but i felt them rough..or not smooth..it had a nylon – plastiky feel while touching…

I took them home , then I remembered I forgot to check the warp … and the warp was some cheap nylon mix..and I felt the saree horrible , I felt cheated for my 6000 bucks… I went back today and I showed him and he apologised and changed , Now I bought another pure silk saree not Kanjeevaram and I am happy with my pure silk…

BEWARE… KANJEEVARAM Lots of mixed OR fake silk is in circulation even in authentic places…Modern Textile engineers have created so many new fake varieties that until we do the litmus test …. we can be easily DUPED…

How to check pure silk….

http://www.silkmarkindia.com/faq.htm#Q6

Take a few threads from the warp and weft and burn them from their ends. When the thread stops burning, a very tiny ash ball might be left behind.Rub the ball in-between your fingers and smell the powdered ash. If it is pure silk, it will smell like burnt hair. Silk, wool, leather and hair all burn alike and form an ash ball. In case of artificial silk, the fibers will flare and burn out quickly there will be neither ash ball nor smell like burnt hair. This silk fabric test is sure to help you while buying silk fabric.

Secret : How to get more hits/traffic on your blog…


Yeah that’s the question , I have been trying to get that…

I heard at the place to add some links to all strange stuff  – Horrible idea , not taken

Have good unique content — didn’t work , moreover am I in a race , This is my blog …why should I have other stuff non interesting to me…

Sexy stuff – horrible enough , not for decent blogs , this is not another p***site…..

Then I was told to make all strange friends in facebook , join others twitter…Basically you scratch my back , I scratch yours…Google is smart enough to filter out useful content vs such scratching

Join all blogger’s sites … I did that , no use…absolutely no use…

Then what…

I just started writing my mind…..Slowly I got readers …

I commented on serious similar blogger , whom i really liked , but not much may be 2-3 comments..

Some came back…

Well I still look for feedback’s , people read , get the info from my blogs and just go by..Well Even I do the same… 😉 , he he he

So only your writing can help you…nothing else…

Enjoy writing and enjoy blogging…

Its for your mind NOT for a race…At-least not for me……
