                Ya COS, he will have to make duplicate ones.....and wich may take some 1 or 2 months and till that time he cannot claim for the damages also...!!

                Tank bags are pretty tightly stuck on the tank bcoz of the powerful magnets but what must have happened was that some 3-4 guys collectively would have done that...!!

                  Hi everyone,
                  It was definitely the most horrible day of my life but the luckest one also, at the same time. Came out almost unscratched, thanks to the riding gears. Guys, please do spend some money on the expensive stuff. Yoe need to have a look at the scratches at my gloves, knee guards, jacket & helmet. Impact was so high that R15 profile got embossed on the side of the car
                  Yes, i am having a tough time to get the dupicate papers. yesterday i went to nearby chowki to lodge a report. Intially the cop asked me to bring some witness then he looked down and asked for 1000 bucks. I straightway left the place. today i am going to a different police station with an influential uncle ( really hate to use 'tedhi ungli' but this time i have resigned as i dont find any other solution).
                  Spares are rare sight at Yamaha showroom and will take more than 10 days.
                  Its a matter of few days and i will be baclk with you guys and wll try my best not to spoil yet another day.
                  Thanks guys for putting in so much efforts. I will never forget.
                  Sneh

                      Good to see u back sneh .

                      Ridding gear is damn important, one thing u can rely on @ 7000 rmp. Last time on the malshej g2g, Kunal was also back on his feel because of the gear .

                      Hope u get ur bike on the stand & on back on road soon.

                        Loads of posts after my last visit to this thread today morning.....
                        Sneh, its nice to see you here. Its good that you came out unhurt, but damn those gaav walas.... they should be kicked in the *** bigtime..... we literally felt helpless when one of us was being dragged and beaten...... we had to run like scared dogs man.... really sad !!!

                        Investing in good Riding gear is never a waste..... we all should wear protective gear.... the bike can be repaired in 7-10 days with the insurance amount and something from the pocket.... but the scratches on Sneh's armour/protective gear could have happened on his body.... blood and fractures n all.... just think..... touch wood !!!

                        Hope to see more people investing in proper riding gear.

                          Pune-Mumbai Road ! Danger or Fun !!

                          Hi Chetan

                          I can relate to your feelings as i often have faced this. I commute between Mumbai and Pune every weekend. YES ! Every Weekend and sometimes more than once every weekend, and i do come across these smart chaps who often will be triple seat, will turn without showing signal/indicator and stand in the middle of the road chatting with god knows who all. The truckers are no less. But then we must understand that its the HIGHWAY which runs through their private territory and it is the government's responsibility to educate these villagers on understanding HIGHWAY discipline and etiquette. Sometimes they do take precautionary measure but mostly use the Highway as a playground. I suggest we only need to be careful of them while riding.

                          The FLIP side of this is that often i have been helped by these villagers only. In case you flip or skid and fall many a times its these wandering villagers who not only may come to your help but often even take you to the closest hospital if they see its not your mistake and that you are asking them for help.

                          Both sides said and done its definitely a mixed bag of feelings.

                          My personal observation a couple of weeks back - I saw 4 People (May be XBHPians May Not Be !!) Racing on the Highway between Khopoli and Panvel riding towards Mumbai on a Black Karizma and a Black Pulsar 200. Yes they were all wearing helmets but were riding very dangerously in the rains. I did show them that a single seat ride can out manouvre them anytime but i was not interested in racing. I hope these arent the kind of guys we have in XBHP who use public roads as a means of irrespinsible ruckus and endanger their as well as others lives in the process.

                          having ridden on this same road years agon with Sunny and Bunny during the GIR i am sure we do treat this stretch of tarmac as holy arean for us to work and play equally.

                          Cheers
