It will be easy to find out, if we go through the contents of the publication.

Somehow the picture doesn't gel. Something is wrong somewhere. The pillion doesn't seem to be taking an evasive action..

Or is it that the picture is true and we are trying to find fault.

I have heard rumors of a rouge elephant between Bandipur and Teppakad, fond of chasing two wheelers.

I've passed through this stretch, at least twice, in the last couple of months but haven't had the luck to spot it.

here is something that is all over the internet:
Quote:
k. I didn't want to mention it but I was thinking about turbo charging my Vette. I got to thinking about it and how in efficient even turbos are (compressor efficiencies of about 80% at best).

Since a turbo's function is to pressurize incoming air and force it into the upper motor, and turbos are driven by high pressure exhaust gas created from the combustion process, couldn't I just bypass the turbo altogether and route my headers back into the throttle bodies?

Since I have CFI, I could balance the DEI (direct exhaust injection as I just coined it) by feeding one header into each throttle body. Yes, the charge air wouldnít be that cold, but it would be under a hell of a lot more pressure.

I attached a quick sketch below:


There are still a few things I need to work out:
1) How do I get the CFI aircleaner to fit in a way that hides this plumbing?
2) Does anyone make a V-band clamp that will bolt an exhaust header to a CFI throttle body?
3) What pinion angle should I use in my rear-end? Iím sure there will be a noticeable difference in torque output.

What do you guys think?

i was following this kinetic blaze in bangalore traffic.. which was crawling all the time.. and i found it pretty ironic that the back of the bike says "catch me if you can" instead of "get rid of me if you can"

On Christmas morning a cop on horseback is sitting at a traffic light, and next to him is a kid on his shiny new bike. The cop says to the kid, "Nice bike you got there. Did Santa bring that to you?"

The kid replies, "Yeah."

The cop says, "Well, next year tell Santa to put a tail-light on that bike."

The cop then proceeds to issue the kid a $20.00 bicycle safety violation ticket.

The kid takes the ticket and before he rides off says, "By the way, that's a nice horse you got there. Did Santa bring that to you?"

Humoring the kid, the cop says, "Yeah, he sure did."

The kid continued, "Well, next year tell Santa to put the dick underneath the horse, instead of on top."

Sawaariya is one long song with some breaks for dialog. And by dialog
I mean girly giggling by the chic and some punch-me-in-the-face
expressions accompanied by pig-like grunting by the hero. One wonders
if all the actors are the props and the set is the real star in this
movie. I came really close to concluding that the
bridge-over-the-fake-river is the central star of the movie, because
everyone of the other actors looks like they were made of rock. And
the rocks had moss growing over them. And the rocks were painted blue


To say Saawariya is a crappy movie would not be correct. Horrendously
Ridiculous comes close, but it doesn't really capture the essence of
the absurdity that this movie is. After watching this movie I felt
like tying up Sanjay Leela Bansali alone in a room, forcing him to
watch a cockroach chase a spider round-and-round a water fountain for
3 hours. That too in blue light. Because seriously, that's what this
entire movie is. It's two grossly untalented kids, who probably got
kicked out of college for lack of attendance and ended up on this set
to spend the rest of the day. And for the love of God, I can't figure
out why the whole movie is in blue! Maybe the director was trying to
get every frame half-black half-blue so that the WinZip compression
would work better to save some electrons, what with all the global
warming and all. That's the best explanation I could come up with,
because nothing else can explain the lack of daylight (or plain light,
for that matter) in this movie.

PPPS : I liked the review better than the movieÖ ;-)

Read on guys... for the ones who have to travel through train
The mega polis of Mumbai holds many a challenge for the 'rookie' who lands here unaware of the hurdles and challenges that he or she might have
A recent incident saw one such hapless victim falling prey to the over enthusiastic nature of Bombay's local train commuters. Our hero, a man from Pune, wanted to go to Matunga, but as luck and trains would have it, boarded a fast train not halting at his destination. He panicked on realising his mistake but by then the local had started moving. On seeing his plight, a sympathetic co-passenger decided to come to his rescue. It seemed that he had been commuting by that particular train (6:03pm Kasara Fast) for the past 6 years and had noticed that the train always slowed down just before Matunga station and crawled at a snail's pace while passing through it. He told the man to jump out of the running train as it slowed down and that with a little bit of fleet-footedness, he would make it safely on terra firma. However, knowing the man's inexperience, he added some words of caution: "Keep running the moment you jump or you'll fall. Just keep running".
He stressed the word "running" lest the man not know the laws of motion. The train did slow down just before Matunga station and at the prompting of his mentor, our hero jumped out of the train and started running as if all hell had broken loose. What he didn't realise, of course, was that he was running parallel to the train instead of running away from it. Meanwhile, the train slowed down further, so that the man was running faster than the train. In the process, he reached the door of the next compartment and the footboard commuters there pulled him in thinking he was trying to board the train! To his agony, the train picked up speed and sped past Matunga and his new co-passengers started to congratulate him on how lucky he had been, until he told them that they had actually undone what he had done with great difficulty.

Those standing at the door of his "ex-compartment" had witnessed the whole drama and just couldn't stop laughing at the poor man's situation, while he grinned sheepishly.
