Mclaren & Psycho - That was a horrific incident. Good to know that you didn't get hurt heavily. You were really lucky.

Take Care.

Glad to hear that both of you came out of this safe and sound.
As someone pointed out, it is indeed an accident in the true sense... Thanks for sharing, with the pics and a nice write up.

And yes, its a reminder for all of us to be safe and cautious. Hope you get ur baleno pretty soon.

I still feel bad about saying THIS just 3 days before the accident happened. That was the first thought that went through my mind when you called me that evening.

PS: Did Godfather turn up on that day...because he said THIS too.
Hey , steeroid and godfather , chill guys .. I never took ur words seriously anyways, it was meant to be in a humorous way and thats exactly how i took it .. So no issues .. Btw steeroid this time when u come to bangy u can try out the baleno around the same corners with the under 5 sec work under the hood and hopefully a bit more than that .. Goddy get ready for the late night meets .. Btw godfather was not present as he wasnt aware of the accident until a week or so ..

No FR .. The bike guy came to a sudden halt in front of the truck and since the truck guy realised he couldnt avoid him he decided to cut across , nothing wrong with that i suppose ..

yes seethu , u are right .. Had v1p3r come that day (any given day all 3 of us used to travel in the car) then the consequences could have been much worse .. To top it up , i got news from my native that had there been a 3rd guy in the car then he certainly wouldnt have survived .. Looking at the condition of the car at the rear we did certainly agree .. v1p3r dont curse VTU and their scheduling of exams , bcoz they just did save our lives .. v1p3r didnt turn up only bcoz he had an exam the next day ... Thanking our lucky stars yet again ..

U bet rtech .. I have found great friends from this forum .. Thanks to all the mods , GTO specially to start with .. Tbhp has become a part and parcel or our lives..

Well we all are human beings , arent we ?? We do make mistakes , but at the spur of the moment we did what we felt was right and forgiving the driver was the only thing we had in mind .. Secondly after impact he didnt try to run away , but parked the truck to the side of the road and sat inside hell scared .. No issues hrag , ur points are valid enough ..

Arey uncle , what is all this sorry worry yaar .. There was mot much u (or anyone for that matter) could do anyway .. If it was anyone else it could have landed ending up much worse .. Keshav applied common sense and didnt try to swerve into the left lane to avoid the truck , thereby avoiding the possibility of flipping over trying to turn a car with locked wheels .. Also he remained calm throught the scene, thus the only thing he concentrated on was to bring the car to a halt in time .. It didnt happen , but we came out alive .. Actually i must be thanking you , for u know it it wasnt for u i could have landed in much deeper trouble..

Yes NC , she did take all the brunt and kept us unharmed .. She did remain faithful till the very end .. I for one will never forget my zen ever neither will any of the bhpians who knew how that car used to fly (most still dont believe that the car was stock) and sound (wrt to the ICE setup)..

McLaren, I heard it from you few days back, but I hadn't realised the extent of damage until I saw the photos. You guys were indeed very lucky and very sensible for wearing seatbelts. A new lease of life indeed.

I should know, I had to really push my Baleno to pass your Zen during the last T-BHP drive.

Mclaren Im really sorry that it happend and happened couple of days before your bday...I know that hurts but all is not gone, this incident just paved way to a brand new Baleno, aint it??? Congrats on that.

Psycho, I know you would be moved too...I can still remmember the quiver in your voice when you had called me , guess a day after the accident...that was indeed disturbing!!!

Now that everything is fine all I can say is you two be extra careful as fate can do weird things to you even when you are most careful...

God bless you...

I always insist my parents even to wear seat belts. And if you are a biker.. use a helmet.

And HONK while you overtake.
