@ Mail4loys - Glad to know you all are safe. Were the police involved? What is the repair bill coming to?

Luckly nothing big happened to the motorist and there was no pillion. He had 6 stitches on the head and few bruises on leg & arm. he was discharged the very next day.

No, i didnt not pay for his medi bill, as it was found that he didnt have DL, the bike was not insured and he was drunk!

i dont want to go OT on this thread, i have posted the repair bill in http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/techni...ml#post1043963 (IKONic problems).

The car was only 3 months old and run only about 5k kms. All four of us inside the car were putting on seat belts and other 3 didn't even have a scratch.
are u sure its only 3 month old car, coz it appears to be old wagon R model by seeing the headlight and its shape ?

This is the biggest benefit of this big car's, that you will be saved by them. But sad to know that biker on highway and NH also driving badly.
