Let Me Die A Young Man's Death.

It's a young man's point of view, and I suppose, it was a young man's poem. I was even younger than a young man when I first read it.

I don't think it has anything practical to do with driving or riding, though, and, if it happened to you, you wouldn't die doing what you love, you'd die screaming that you screwed up.

I say "you." When it comes to driving, it could be anay of us, at any age.

Mods... please forgive the literary and philosophical interlude. I don't think it's too far off topic. I hope!

I think the axle is damaged? The front left wheel appears bent. Why the hell is he driving it!!!
Think I've seen this bentley in one of autopsyche's facebook albums. The owner had got the indian flag done sometime during the indian gp I think. There was also a black x6 with the same flag. Probably belongs to the same owner.

This is when it hurts to own an exotic I reckon. I would be shattered if this had happened to my regular cars itself.

I guess if one owns a bentley, He/she probably has every bit of the car covered for 100% insurance.

So could be, or not, the same one.

Good Grief! How?

Electrical fault? Passenger/driver carelessness?

There is a perfectly valid reason for this. Enlightened riders such as the ones on this forum constitute probably less than 0.01 % of the total rider population in India. Remember, close to a million two wheelers are sold each month in India. And a vast majority of the remaining 99.99% riders dont give two cents about safety rules, their own safety, other folks's safety, etc. For this vast majority, there is only one rule when it comes to riding - the 3 feet width rule: See an empty space 3 feet wide? You can take your bike there. It does not matter which side of the road you are on, what's the status of traffic signals, heck even if its a road - cause for a bike in India, the footpath is a perfectly acceptable surface to ride on.

No wonder for most of us, bike riders are pests (seriously no offence guys please). Its the sheer large number of foolish bikers out there who are the reason behind this general public perception. And when folks see people riding superbikes in groups roaring and revving and generally creating a racket (like on Carter road in Bandra) - the impression only becomes worse.

Could it be that the (super) heated aluminum panels might have just cracked/ shattered when it came under the fireman's high pressure water spray??

Reportedly, there was a blast from the engine compartment. That might explain the absence of the bonnet. Can't figure out the door's absence though.

Is the bonnet aluminium? If so, it would easily have melted in such a fire. Anyone who forgot leaving an Al pan on the gas burner might well, if they left it long enough past boiling dry, find they didn't have a pan any longer. Even thin steel might have burnt.
