A lot safer than bumping into someone with petrol cans!

Guys, thank you all for your comments & it was good to see that quite a few of you can relate to the incident & the general feeling of euphoria thereafter!

And I can almost imagine the kind of situations that you would have been in Farhan, this would have been a sleepy Sunday afternoon drive by comparison

Guys, mornings on the way to work are usually the worst time of the day for me to stop - always short of time . Besides, the momentum of the drive would have been lost as well

This guy slows down for nothing.
I think you've summed up his style of driving to the T - he doesn't slow down for much from what I could see

Well, we have a well known NCR member who would love to use this mode of transport for his milk ferrying trips - unfortunately, he's on an exalted status (read BANNED) otherwise I'm sure we'd have heard from him by now, right Khaadu??

Yeah, I've just got one of the bumper stickers on top of the tailgate - he'd have seen it for sure but may not have realized what it was all about. Had it been on the way back home, I'd have surely stopped & chatted up with him & clicked a few. But mornings - woh!

I saw a Volvo (S60, I think, and I think it said V8 on the front grill; could that really be? V8?) today on the ECR.

Made me think of your thread --- but in reverse; it was being driven very sedately!
