my dad called me up abt 2 days back to break the news.my bike has been sold off.i had casually remarked to him that i didnt need the bike over here.never expected it would be so fast.was a black splendor.am not a big guy so ne of those big machines wud have luked like an elephant under me.was the frst vehicle i ever drove.was a gleaming,purring baby when i brought it home on september 9,2000.didnt know to drive it at that time .the learning days were stressful.
release the clutch gradually ,u jerk!!!
can somebody help me pull it up on the stand??
ok,im goin at 40 kms/hr,so do i get into the second gear now??
the first ride to college.my parents looked like they were sending me off to the indo-pak border.the time when i fought at home n rode it to college in pelting rain.my nose was frozen by the time i reached college.n when i drove it into the mound of sand by the roadside while tryin to avoid that toothy urchin .the accelerator wire n one of the indicator lights broke.but i saved the kid.
the lift seekers at the brijwasan crossing.old men with their drooping bellies sticking out their bony arms.i feel guilty abt not obliging many of them.
middle aged women with thick arms,thick red lipstick,smiling stupidly trying to woo motorists with their imagined sensuality.retired guys generally stopped for em.
doods in their tight t-shirts n gelled hair.it was fun cutting them off.see u loser,i got a bike!!!he he.
n then the college going girls.sleeveless tops.sunglasses.colourful handbags.they generally stood a lil way off in the shade.i invariably slowed down as i passed them.got lucky a couple of times.
i hope ive been a good master to the poor thing.never drove it too fast.accidents..a couple of them,but no major ones,those that require the insurance agencies.in the later stages,i cleaned it too infrequently but it looked kinda rugged with all that dirt.just hope that the next guy treats it kindly.
