    From what i have seen in maharashtra,gujarat and rajasthan, the cops are just too lazy to go through the whole courtroom procedure and would rather just challn you or take a bribe.

    and the question remains why do i race?
    every finishing line is the begining of a new race.

    #i have learnt to manipulate my own adrenaline and the perception of biking is different.

    #how random roads may appear there is always a destination.
    #i don't subscribe to co-incidence,either it is the rider or the other moron on the road

    2012 Zero S bike launched in North America





    American manufacturer Zero Motorcycles has launched the Zero S as part of its 2012 line-up. The Zero S is an all-electric motorcycle which the manufacturer claims is capable of covering upto 160km on a single charge, and also has enough juice to hit speeds in excess of 140kmph. The new Z-Force power pack that the Zero S uses is capable of 3000 charging cycles, is said to last the lifetime of the bike, and can be recharged in less than four hours.

    The new powertrain gets an air cooled system to keep it operating at moderate temperatures.The 2012 Zero S bike is available in two power configurations, the 6 and 9kWh. A double diamond rear swing arm and a custom rear shock with a fully adjustable spring preload ensure that the handling and ride characteristics match.

    Oldest American motorcycle up for sale

    Looks more like a bicycle, but this was nirvana in 1903




    http://s1.visordown.com/uploads/imag...inal/47146.jpg


    POSSIBLY the oldest unrestored Indian motorcycle is soon to be auctioned.

    The 1903 Indian motorcycle originated from the world of velodrome bicycle racing and it was originally described as a motorized-bicycle. Despite its current state, this Indian has been enjoying retirment for many years, having spent the last 30 hanging on a dentist's wall.

    "As far as we know, this is the only unrestored 1903 still in existence" says Steve Rinker, who runs Buck's Indian, an Indian motorcycle restoration firm.

    Estimates vary but it's expected to reach in excess of £70,000

    US Governer signs law relaxing helmet use

    Michigan riders over 21 can ride without a helmet once more



    Next year will mark 40 years since motorcycle helmets became mandatory in the UK. It's unthinkable that this law would ever be relaxed whilst riders across the pond have very different views on the matter.

    Laws vary across the pond in the US, with some states requiring no helmet to be worn. Other states have laws that allow no helmets if you meet certain age and medical insurance restrictions. For the last decade it has been mandatory to wear a helmet in Michigan, but Governer Rick Snyder has recently signed into law a bill that will allow riders in that state to feel the wind through their hair once again.

    From a UK law perspective this certainly feels like a step backwards but US citizens have always felt very strongly about their freedom. Synder says "there is no substitute for proper training, education and awareness when it comes to operating any motor vehicle" but whilst riders over 21 (with appropriate insurance) can now ride without a helmet, car drivers must stay buckled up or risk a ticket.

    So is the freedom to leave that helmet at home a good idea or is this a case where making your own decisions could be bad for your health?

    Mexican bikers face terrorism charges

    Backfiring motorcycles cause crowd stampede in Mexico



    TWO motorcyclists from Mexico are facing terrorism charges after their backfiring exhausts caused a crowd to panic and stampede, fearing that there were gunshots nearby.

    The suspects' backfiring motorcycles caused hundreds of people to panic at a celebration of Holy Week in the main square of San Luis Potosi, Mexico.

    Both men have been charged under Mexico's terrorism laws and could be sentenced to up to 20 years if they are convicted.

    However, there are two versions to the events causing problems with the incident. The motorcyclists say that they were just warming up their engines, whereas witnesses believe they intentionally continued to rev their engines, even after people started to panic.

    A state Human Rights Commission has launched an investigation into the events, stating that the blame could be placed at the city authorities, who allowed vendors to set-up stands in the town square without appropriate attention given towards crowd evacuation.

    Whatever happened to loud pipes save lives...

    Default Pulsar 200NS spotted in Indonesia

    the new pulsar 200ns was spotted in indonesia recently. presumably, bajaj wants to test the bike in indonesia and probably make some minor changes to suit the indonesian market.

    from the one pic available, it seems to be the same as the production version 200ns shown in india before

    Walah…Pulsar 200NS diam-diam sudah masuk Indonesia?? Iwanbanaran's Blog

    the bike is expected to be shown at the annual motor show in PRJ, around june-july and deliveries are expected to start by end of this year or early next year
