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...
