Honda CBF Stunner 125



Honda launches CBF Stunner 125. A look at the recent bikes certainly suggests that motorcycle companies are realizing the importance of good looks even in the commuter bike segment. This is by far the best looking two-wheeler that HMSI has launched in the country. Can put Dio also in the same league but not the Aviator.

This bike looks far far better than the 125cc Shine (of course, Shine wasn't meant to really impress I think). It generates 11bhp@8000rpm and also touches 60kmph in 5.2 seconds. Not bad I would say. It's got traces of Hero Honda Karizma; in fact, a very important feature of the design is that the front panel, which includes the headlight, speedometer et al, isn't attached to the swing handle. I think, therefore, that bike would be amazing as far as handling is concerned. It's also a first in 125cc segment in India. Unicorn's engine has proven to be a very refined one at all speeds, so we can expect the same from this one.

A welcome introduction by HMSI. Hope it does well. For Yamaha, it gets tougher even with the upgraded new Gladiator.

If your mobile phone and laptop suck up your time and leave you tired without any feeling of satisfaction at the end of the day, you might just want to do this exercise for a few days and measure your DISTRACTION QUOTIENT.

If you look at the sheet, you'll see 4 columns. You'll also see some symbols and words highlighted in green.

The first 2 columns are sort of 'purposeful'. Obviously, we use mobile phones and laptops for purposeful activities. So the first 2 columns give you the space to record what you consciously decide to do using these gadgets. They are marked with 'right tick' on top. You can fill these columns well in advance.

The 3rd and 4th columns are meant to record the instances of 'unintentional' or 'u…

David Damron on filling time

Just a few moments back I read this guest post by David Damron (of The Minimalist Path) on ZenHabits. Fantastic read. Simple to apply and see the result for yourself. So, am publishing the same post here. Spread the message far and wide (for it is mighty important) :).

In the post below, forget the word Materialism. It isn't such a 'spiritual' lesson after all; though it could be if you want to take it that way. My point is it might just help you to set some worthy goals for yourself.
