Hypersport/Supersport/whatever.. the point of the matter here is not to discuss the category under which JA's bike falls.. is it??
Could we please stick to what this thread was started for?

my take on this whole incident; John's just another scapegoat for the media, an excuse for higher TRP and B.S, that's all. my sympathies lie with the poor man and his bike. hope they get better soon. this poor chap seems like a genuine enthusiast to me- the bugger, reportedly, still has his first car bought from his hard-earned money, a tata sierra. that alone, in my books, is reason enough to like him as a fellow enthusiast.

as for the law system in India- it definitely doesn't deserve accolades. it's a screwed up system, an excuse for authority, that's it. but hey, that's just my opinion.

This is certainly , but the irony of our homeland and the legal system cracks me up. SK simply gets away after innocent humans sleeping on the roadside, but gets sentenced for killing wild animals. With all due respect to endangered wild animals, we should also respect human life.

Well read in the papers this morning that JA has been discharged from the hospital and is recouperating at home ( with one of the best looking nurses might I add!) and he has not been arrested or chargesheeted.. so all's well that end's well..

This is typically how our justice works, take a relatively harmless high profile case and make a mountain out of it and enjoy as the media cooks up juicy side stories.

Yawn..Yawn..

And that poor IPS officer who got mowed in MP. Nothing will ever happen to the perpetrators other than a host of jingoistic statements issued by the biggies.

And now someone will say "so what, he can afford another bike." But from what I know, he seems to be a real biker, not Salman Khan. He saved up to buy an export spec Bullet when he wasn't very rich.

On the other hand, I'm very happy Salman Khan is going to jail. I hope he gets a 'hero's welcome' from the inmates. Stupid little chimpanzee.
Don't compare Salmon the K, the miserable fool to a Chimpanzee. Chimps are nice creatures and Salmon the K is not. However he has one redeeming feature in my book and this is that he likes dogs so he can't be all bad.
