guys,

we have the bikes priced at around 30k ...the econo brigade.

well if the bike manufacturers follow these suggestions we can seriously get bikes at lower prices..

1) remove the head light

2) remove the brake light

3) remove the front brake

4) remove the side / signal lights

5) remove both rear view mirrors


all these are never or hardly used by any bike rider. i see so many of the guys riding without headlights , brake lights , the rear view mirrors (if available) positioned on their faces !!!!



thats the secret to getting newer powerful bikes at lower prices.

cheers

LOL, yeah........ many guys do have a crazy idea that the rear view mirrors is to check their hairstyles!
And also the psychology that others should be careful of where these guys are going. If they get knocked down by a car etc, irrespective of whose fault it is, the people will blame the car guy!! Thats insane!!

I like the 3rd point best! i haven't seen a single biker use the front brake. they all use the rear brake in all situations!
and its exactly the opposite that they shud be doing!

I have been trying to persuade some guys in Chennai to start some kind of riding/racing school on the race track. Mainly for big bikes - but all sizes of bikes will be welcome. Do u think this will work? Is it a good idea financially?

ROTFL 1st i got confused abt this post but then at the end i cudn't agree wid u more, its really a sad & frustrating to c people riding/driving this way ( yea i hv seen many people who think its against their pride to give a signal while turning or lane changing while driving )

I think all these points apply to our infamous Taxi drivers as well!

Loll NC

I do use the front brake though, in heavy traffic when the traffic is moving in inches ... And I donno how to zip around in traffic like all bikers do bit weak in that department ...

I hate bikers when im standing on a signal on front row waiting for the signal to go green and go ahead of the rest ... but these idiots will come from no where and may from footpath in case of jams and will stand exactly in front of me ... my start is ruined and other cars go in front
