It is said that all is fair in war and love - and it is also said that love is blind. we all have our own reasons to fall in love, and though I love all the bikes, Royal Enfield bullet have a special place in my heart. 

If you look form a logical point of view, Bullet is not the most advanced bike you can get your hands on - well, the bike is anything but modern. The bike is heavy, leaks oil (well, most of the time), slow, drinks petrol like she have a drinking problem, and have a thousand and one other issues - but the bike still have a huge fan following, and for many, is not a bike, but a religion. Why? Well, it is very hard to explain the answer, but 'charm' is a word often associated with the answer.

No - this post is not an analysis about why Bullet still commands the heart of many of us - but just a testimony to the old world charm that the bullet is. Ladies and gentlemen, I introduce 'Neela', my new 1970 model std 350. 

I returned RedEye to her home after more than one month of use, and i have to say that she got me impressed - big time. I took Jeevs out for a spin this Saturday and what is a better way to end his hibernation than some good old mud banging. there is this huge landfill, and we had some nice time, going up and down kicking the dust, doing some torque steer, basic jumps and all that - man, it was serious fun, and by the end of it, we looked like some one showered us with a ton of fine dust. But I tell you again - it was FUN :-D

My favorite movie series - Fast and Furious, is returning to theaters this weekend - the latest addition - Fast and Furious 4 will hit cinemas on 3rd, and I am waiting to catch the action. 
Vin disel, Paul walker, Michelle Rodriguez and Jordana Brewster - they are re teaming, and I am sure the movie will not disappoint me.

I found this video while I was browsing, and man, the song and the video is awesome.

Just another random post

I know there is no point in saying I am back once more, to vanish to thin air after posting one or two posts, so , no, I am not back. But I am alive, and kicking. I think all those who used to visit this place are long gone, and this is like a abandoned warehouse...

Past couple of weeks, I was kind of totally away from net - no blog, not much tweets, no orkut, no chat sessions...the reason being, I was entrusted with some rather heavy responsibilities at my workplace, and that kind of robbed my online life. 

Though I am always a hard core Royal Enfield Bullet fan, I never liked the Royal Enfield Thunderbird much - Till LJ loaned me his Red eye for a couple of days, couple of months back. Now Red Eye is again back in my hands, and this time, I let her go completely, and man, I love every moment I ride her. She do have her share of quirks, but hey, she is from the RE stable, and a bike without some quirks is not a RE product. I love the way she scares the traffic and the way she pulls and pulls - thanks to couple of well thought out mods by LJ, and the padded seat is like a recliner chair. LJ, your red-eye rocks. (and yeah, Jeevs is getting some well needed rest, and I am sure he is happy about that. who will not love some rest after a long hard day of work)

I think I will have more time n my hands from this week, and I don’t plan to abandon this place - so if any of you still drop down here, thanks for coming and keep coming.

ps: if you love Dilbert, you may like to take a look here- a HUGE repository of Dilbert strips - from the very first one...
