From Russia With Love
This blog is an online expression of my thoughts, about my country and how my life revolves around her. The dream to live here forever and involve myself to make a change about things which matter to me. My love for motorcycles and touring my country on them. My passion for being in the midst of people who make up our country.

Here is a list of rides (worth mentioning IMO) that I have undertaken in the last couple years. The hyperlinks would direct you to BCMTouring.com, where I am a member and moderator.
I hope you have enjoyed reading some of the logs and the pictures.

90% of the properties in NCR (including Delhi) have a hugely (and obscenely) inflated price tag attached to them and people have bought them taking 20 year bank loans while working in BPOs, Call Centres, IT Sector and other non stable jobs. An Indian sub prime meltdown in the making? The 2 BHKs and 3 BHKs in Gurgaon, Noida, Ghaziabad and Faridabad are worth zilch ( not more than 10-12 lacs) due to the lack of basic infrastructure like power, drinking water, safe neighbourhood and usable public transport but take a look at their price tags.
There is no short term or long term solution to NCR power woes, come 2010 with the Common Wealth Games, Delhi will be brightened up 24/7 leaving the surrounding suburbs of Faridabad and Ghaziabad in darkness. Delhi doesnt have the water resources to produce its own power(hydel), neither its interested in alternative sources like solar power.

Writing in after a decade and stirring up what is an eternal debate amongst the Indian motorcycle community. But then this is my blog and I have all the rights to praise or dismiss any product/person/incident, so all you eue-brow raisers can eat my arse!
Ok, so whats the deal with the Bullet? I mean really, my small little 150cc Honda goes faster, handles better, returns greater fuel efficiency, brakes better and is thousandth time more reliable than the 350cc metal fat arses which roll out of the Chennai manufacturer's obsolete gates. I didnot buy a tractor to trail 150kgs of luggage when touring, I bought a frigging motorcycle. Its not without reason that the British motorcycle companies got wiped out by the Japanese whilst the Italians managed to hold on their own.
Pro-Bulleeters argue that Bullet is not about tyre screeching performance, its not about speed, its all about the presence, the old world charm, bla bla and multiple more blas. Well, what they forget that a motorcycle is mostly about, going around that corner faster, no breaking down anywhere and everywhere, not leaking oil like a sick bitch and definitely not costing more than its worth. Yep, I come from a Bulleeter family but all these bullcrap (by most Bulleeters) are simply an offense on the motorcycle which was an essential "trials bike" in UK. Heck, 95% of the present day Bulleeters do not even know that and think the Bullet is a cruiser.
I say, you must be pretty retarded to buy a Bullet and more to ride one. And you vouch for one, someone must surely send you to Guantanomo bay and meet Big Bob.
