Awesome thread. I really got reminded on my own bike-ventures (nothing as exciting as yours Sam).

Sam,

I have told you this before and again will say it - You need to brush up on the endings

Your stories are sooooo engrossing that the end actually comes as an anti climax.

NC, everyone has a different style of relaying a story.

There are many that create a dull beginning, even duller middle and a tight, quick ending, often filled with unexpected surprises. I cannot do that, I need a gripping tale throughout.

A YetiBlog® has 2 massive disadvantages.

1) It is written in retrospect-present.
2) It is a real-life account

Therefore, regardless of the unexpected end, you already know that the lead character already survived to tell the tale.

Besides, I guess this is the style I've discovered I'm comfortable with. The story is quick right from the start, many twists and turns and bumps and bends and then a quick happy end.

I know you like it when I write an end and then an emotional epilogue, I've realised that you enjoy an emotional ending.

I'll try to please you next time

@nc i guess you remember the line in OSO. "Hamare filmon ki tarah hamari zindagi mein bhi end tak sab kuch theek hi ho jata hai aur agar theek na ho, to woh The End nahin..PICTURE ABHI BAAKI HAI MERE DOST!!"

Arre bangru, tu toh emotional hogaya. Guess I feel like that because I don't want the stories to end.

Nah just let them use the same excuses and think they are getting away with it. Atleast then you know what they were really up to. if you force them to move up the value chain of excuses you'll never know what they are really into.

This story should have ended with the 4 of you wondering what you would do at the octroi naka. I'm sorry but I have to agree with NC here.

Such an incomplete story? The forum would have KILLED me on this thread.

Besides, no happy ending?

The YetiLife® always has a happy ending. Always.

Another bike sees the melee and slams his brake well in advance. Approaches the oil slowly and tips over. Quite funny.

Someone sees the mess up ahead and slams the brake. SCREEEEE DHAASSHHH. Wow. That's 3. People buy tickets to see this sort of thing.

About 5 accidents later we decide to name that spot Whacko Point. Today Whacko point is covered with a fancy curved flyover.
