u look at the accidents and they just scare you to keep of these roads, but when you look back at your loved car's/bikes, next thing you do is forget these accidents and you carry on the way you ride normally...probably that is what you call as "life goes on"...

Now instead of the Loved cars and bikes just put your Loved ones there..I mean your "Family"...when you think of it..You life stops for a second..

And yes then you forget everything...And burn the roads..then again you see this thread..and again the same...thing.

Most of these (all except the last one) seem to be caused by diving under a truck or other heavy vehicle. Really makes the case for some kind of mandatory safeguards

He has 4 workshops. One is for GM cars, one for Ford, one for Porsche (ever seen 5 Cayenne's in a row ) and one I think is for Bentley but I am not sure about the Bentley's because there are a lot of other cars around.

Talera Ford - Wagholi and yes I have seen a crashed 997 which went over a divider No pics though since I did not have a phone cam then. What I saw that time was that the spare wheel in the Porsche is not wider than the CBZ rear tyre 100/90-18. See the rust in pieces thread for some junk I snapped lying in the compound.

Shoeib, you can see the same arrangement even here at my Ford dealer in Bangalore. They share the same yard for stocks. I also believe the same people own a Chevy dealership, based on what Ajmat reported on another thread.

Yes the Metro Ford and the GM Garuda are under the same management. Their service centers on Kanakpura road is next to each other.

Sankar, that should have read as Cauvery Ford, and not Metro Ford.
