Default back bone issues for long drivers

bike was my passion, i thought with out bike i cannot live, i hated city buses

hi fellas am just 24 years old, i hails from thrissur and done my degree in bangalore

from dergee first year onwards for every semester breaks i used to go to my home(600 kilometers in 9 hours) and return to college on bikes(cbz,pulsar,electra,thunderbird,kinetic blaze)

with in 5 years i have 21 trips to my home plus one pondichery and goa trips(both on thunder bird)

after finishing my course i joined in a sw firm in bangalore, that was the turning point, as all know we have to sit and work for long hours

i started feeling a mild pain opn my back when i sit in front of laptop,after two months i consulted in a local hospital and he gave me some pain killers,i continued it for 2 months after that i went to my native for a short break, i was diagonsed in a good hospital and admitted , IT WAS SLIP DISK , that mild pain was slip disc

i was admitted in to hospital for 45 days,my legs were some kind of paralysed, but now i recovered but no bikes.

i resigned my job from bangalore and now working in cochin,but still for every 2 hours i sit doctor advised to walk for 15 minutes

now i love public transport system.

the thing happened to me:- i just used to take 9 hours to cover a span of 600 kilometers, i was a fast driver,never used to take break.

so riders never trust your bikes shocks while you go for long drives, take a break in every two hours,

Hey buddy ,

Thanks for your concern but as straight6 said our rides are really short.

I understand how you must have felt during that trajic moment, I wish that no one ever goes through this.

Wish you a speedy recovery.

I am sure with proper physiotherapy/Yogasanas you will be able to ride again.

Take care.

Talking

Just a heads'up guys.Apparently on the way back, heswyn and suresh were speeding near the Santucruz flyover area,they were doing speed's of 200kmph+ it seems.A cop with a speed gun spots them,he obviously couldn't catch them,he contacts the cops ahead.While they were seeing each other off at andheri east,the cops caught them .Heswyn as usual tries to act all innocent and tells the cops that he was onlydoing 85kmph.The cops bursted out laughing.

They reached home in 35 mins apparently.They have a court hearing on the 14th cheers:.

Great way to sum up a fantastic ride i say!

Suresh doesn't seem to be that kind of a rider. I'll believe that about Heswyn though.
