Not many famous personalities wear seat-belts and or helmets.

Many people look unto them and they should set a good example, same for politicians.

Actors & Cars do make a deadly combo, on/off screen, I just wish, some were more responsible.

Jaya, if you go back and look at some videos of Salman on the Busa, a bunch of us bikers criticized him for not having a helment on. Given the other pics, Viveik definitely raises some eyebrows for not having a helment on. The other guys are just posed on/next to their bikes, so no lid no complaints.

It is not that Jaya. We all do but the only saving grace is that the celbs wear shoes and basically we are tired of saying the same thing. In the case of a common man you have access to him, so if someone does see him the next time you can tell him, what do you do for a celeb? I keep telling them if i see them but then i can't make them wear it can i. John is very perticular. If he is riding he has all his gear in place.

Only John and Neil are posing. Salman and vivek are riding. Salman never wears ant gear while riding.

@ Ysooseriouss the Lp has been for sale for almost six months now.

I strongly agree. I saw an interview on a TV channel with Boman Irani and his garage. He was describing his merc. When the interviewer stepped in to drive his german, with Boman alongside, the latter promplty pointed out that the interviewer was had not belted up. Sallu is pure reckless and a bad example. But to think of it no one will shoot his photo if he is geared up or clothed properly

The car is available through exclusive motors delhi. Serviced by them. She was one of the first in town so i guess 09 something. My honest advice dont bother with her, she could become a trouble maker.

A little OT, but why do you say that the lambo could become a trouble maker?I mean has she been abused or something?Excuse my ignorance, but being a "used" supercar, she could be a real value proposition considering the depreciation and minimal usage right?

But then isnt the beast meant to be driven like that occassionally?What use is a hyper-sportcar if it cant be taken to a track and driven in the manner it deserves?

By abuse I meant too many handlers/inherent problems/lack of knowhow on usage of the machine et al..

Yes a valued proposition if you buy her second hand, no doubt about it. I would not like to mention it in the open forum the reason for me calling her a possible trouble maker in later times. The people who stay around the actors house would know what i am talking about.

This is what it should be doing everyday of its life or rather was born to do. I dont see why a little play on the track is considered a reason for it giving trouble.
