You mean to say it is hardly followed.

So it is hardly followed. Thats what bollywood is showing. Earlier movies like Mother India and Karma, did not have a tilt towards open culture.

Nothing dramatic like the Moscow video, but this is one of the clippings made by one of my friends - I am the guy who is riding the bike, and this was shot couple of years back.

@ theexperthand: buddy, you were driving very rashly, endangering your life, and lives of your friend (pillion) & other road users. whats there to be so proud of?

i definetely do not see anything "cool" or "amazing" in this video. yes, i do see something -

funny - your friend's comments! (i am a malayalee, so i understood)
weird - your driving style & then posting the video over here. (expecting what???)

this video proves why car drivers like me hate most bikers.

@theexperthand- your friend must have had a hell of a ride.
agree with raj, a reason why we hate bikers, you were flowing through the place with nary a care for road rules, not that the rest of the traffic was orderly.

Your friend's comments were indeed funny: He wanted to cling on to his dear life, unlike you.
Let better sense prevail.

Do you drive a four wheeler too?

@raj_5004 @DicKy & @jeeva

I totally agree with you - there is nothing cool or amazing about this video.
I was just comparing this short ride with that of the guy in the moscow video. Stupid, I know.

I was never a rash rider /driver, but this video is of one of those days when devil had me totally and I agree that I was fast and rash on that day.

But I have stopped riding like this long time back, and I never overspeed or ride rash any more.

@Jeeva: yes, I do drive a four wheeler too.
