- Ok ppl I have been away too long and as such din't remain in touch.
well nice to know that Sean's bike is doing good and Dave found his
oil seals and Sean not to worry I will pass on your sugeestion
(Chennai ppl need to pay some consultation fees to these ppl) as I
live in India (heck I will).
But I want to share a terrible incident which happened to me
recently. Few days back I left home to leave for work in the
afternoon and when going over the first flyover (it actually curves
to the left quite steep) I saw few people who had stopped. When I
reached the spot I saw two very young men lying face down on the road
(they had met with an accident) and one of the guys was bleeding
profusely form his forehead and there was a huige cut in his chin.
The other guy's left leg was bleeding, and most probably (according
to me) was broken. Intersting the two men were riding a Bullet
Standard Black and the bike was all twisted up. We called up the
Police and an ambulance and got the poor fellows to a hospital. It
was very very obvious that the guys were going at top speed about
80kmph and were not able to control at the turn as the tyre marks
showed that the bike had run on to the side of the flyover and one of
the guy's helmet was stuck in the side grill of the flyover. After
the guy were carried off I handled the bike and took her to their
house (which was nearby). I just wanted to share this incident. Do
ride this wonderful piece of machine but be a little careful ... I do
know a bullet separates the men from the boys but please be careful.

- On occation the Bullet has been known to separate the soul from the
body of the rider....
I have seen a few of those, sticky ones, before that I never knew how
much blood and stuff could be fitted inside a skinny little guy. When
it's all out on the tarmack it looks so much more! Heaven (and hell)
is probably full of very surprised people that thought they where
immortal. The usual cause of death on a bike is by stupidity -yours
or other drivers. Same difference. Shame on the bike thou.
BTW India has the worlds by far highest deathrate on the roads, most
of it is on 2 wheelers. Jan
