What if the cow was intelligent enough to jump on those rods like in a hurdles race.

This reminds me of the "tight rope walking" act where the person balances himself using a long pole.
May be this is his way of balancing the bike.

Pathetic cost saving adventure. Forget their own safety, they deserve it. But this was at the cost of others safety.
If there was a car coming from the front and if there was a collision,
1. the car was definately damaged.
2. Injury to the bikeriders, which means more headache for the car driver. As discussed in another thread, the bigger car driver is at fault.

A common sight in bangalore is of some bikers wearing the helmet at signals so poilemen do not catch them and removing it the moment they cross the signal. When are they going to realize helmets are for their own safety.

Those rods are just like some 'spoilers' you see on sports cars. That helps the bike balance well in headwinds

Well thiyags I guess their rear view mirrors or elbows will surely be protected by these helmets (thats where they keep it). If they had something in the head to protect they would be wearing it there

The biker has the latest version of frame sliders mounted for additional protection. By all means, he may have used his in-born biking skills to swerve aggressively out of the cow's path, and the cow went about doing its business on the street.
Funnt pic, thanks for sharing.

Thanks for the video. Actually hats off to the guy who did this video which is a mixture of sarcasm and naked truth. I am a biker myself and must admit that "some blokes on two wheels needs a high five - on the head -with a chair"
