YIPEE..!! MY FIRST BIG ACCIDENT..!!
When i woke up this morning i sensed it was gonna be a not-so-good-day, especially when i saw there was no msgs waiting in my inbox. I was supposed to meet my sister for lunch. All was going well until i was hit by a MUV from behind and bit the tar. Though it was a bad thing to anybody i really enjoyed it. Here is what happened. I was fast as usual and my U turn was fast approaching. So i decided to overtake the MUV on its left side and take the U turn. That was a very bad move.
The moment i overtook and turned the bike right i knew my calculation was wrong and was gonna be run over and thats exactly what happened. I was hit from behind and luckily thrown from my bike and not so luckily hit my head first on to a bike from the opposite direction. Though i was not following the traffic rules in terms of speed i am a good enough citizen to wear a helmet. When i was helped on my feet, my jean and shoes were torn, the helmet was broken with the visor shattered into pieces. But by then, it has already served its purpose. Apart from bruises on both palms, a considerably serious wound on the right wrist, one of the right knee and a terrible pain in the left knee cap, i am okay. If someone has recorded this it could easily make to the Road Rampage or World's most Amazing videos or The most Stupidest driver. The accident was really amazing and experiencing the flying and banging from the first person's view was great.
THE SECOND GREAT HAPPENING.!!
I am not the kind of person who considers things like this as a bad sign and quite the opposite especially when i was looking forward to this day of flying on the highways at top speed. So i decided to go to the lunch as per the schedule and sped on the highway. On the to journey, my babe was not so good as she was and gave a couple of hiccups. But when coming back i decided to push my luck further and stepped on it. And YES.!, my babe was as great as never and gave her best. CROSSED 120 kmph FOR THE FIRST TIME beating my previous best of 118 kmph. And this time i rode on 121 kmph for a full two minutes and it was GREAT particularly when i was thinking she was getting older after these three yrs. We were like a ruthless black horse and jockey thinking on the same wave length. The chillness you feel in your spine while cornering and cutting through light and heavy vehicles at those speeds was an amazing feeling. WOW..!! Thanks to the Apache RTR, R&D and Testing teams. I think thats her capacity but hoping to push her even harder and further and faster in the future.
