well guys had a harrowing experience in my zen. we were on the way to bangalroe for mangalore. well me and my other buddies were in a group of 3 zens. we were iterally racing our way through *in th sat afternoon traffic. if u guys would know the road we reached the ghat section in a flat 2 and half hours which is very good. and then disaster srikes....nothing to us but to some truck that overturned in the ghat section. so we guys were stuck there for 4 hrs thill it was cleared. the we start our racing again. we reach neelamangla around 2 in the morning. and then i become the pilot cars. the road was soo straight that i was flooring it and also we wanted some night life in blore. so there were going ...and suddenly my buddy gets a call on his cell ....hes in front seat ..as i take a look at him ....whoa there it is a divider being made....i quickly steered to left..too late ..right wheel hits the divider....and this was at 110 kmph.... man rest is history ....got car towed...we were ok..i had bent chasis and my rim had to be replaced.......BUT the bridgestones i had on my tire didnt POP. man there was a 90 degree bent ,..even then the tire was intact.....now i recomend bridgestones to all my buddies.
anyways guys....there r some sore didviders there with no marking..so be careful......!!!!as for zen it is the cheapest to repair...only rs.12,000.

But man u sure do have some guardian angel doing his/her job well. I once saw a zen, on my way back to Blore from chennai, that had climbed over a similar unmarked divider. All its four wheels where hanging!! And get this, the divider was barely 30 feet or so long, with no other divider in sight on the road. Seems it was put there specifically for the purpose of ruining cars!

Cheers

drive safe guys.
ur negligence cud also hurt others.
its good that u escaped with only a bent rim and a bent chassis.
but wat does that mean a bent chassis.so now are u driving a bit sideways like all those express buses on NH17.

bent chassis?
is it that easy to repair?.... Chassis right?
Chassis is the thing or say the frame on which the whole car is built?

I think.. a damage to it.. can never be repaired perfectly.
If I am right then.. its much more than 12000 .. (not that repair cost is more than 12k)... but the accident did cost you your chassis!!!!!

Did you bother to get a licnece after the last crash ? Frankly, this accident was sheer driver carelessness and nothing great to tom-tom about
