  1. Cafe racer - MY HUMBLE APOLOGIES - buddy, really sorry was out of town for a few days, just got back and yes HAVE REPLIED :-) All the best with your meeting, dont worry, you sound a bit tense and apprehensive, I would be too, but YOU ARE NOT ALONE, I told ya, yup you are far away from home and all that, but you are still in the Automobile family and you can count on other members in that family, right here have mentioned certain details in the mail, which you could run through, dont even look for support from any mags and stuff at the moment, dont ask me why, thats just how things work around here, that will come too with time, first lets iron out certain other knick knacks I mailed you about! Cheers, Max
  2. Caferacer - OF COURSE! 4 thumbs up (toes included!) Yes you have all the numbers you need, but it needs to be addressed differently, for starters send me a mail ( askmaximus@gmail.com ) and well take it from there. If its support your looking for, dont worry mate, well lay it on! You wont be short of a helping hand I can assure you. Lets hear something concrete from you first, I promise to assist you personally to whatever extent required and bring in as much numbers as anyone can consider sufficient! Cheers,
  3. and Synn - ^ aint for you so dont take it personally!
  4. I do not recall mentioning TVS or the bikes shown in my earlier post. I was merely referring to "CONCEPTS" and the crude mindset that afflicts young wannabes that if its not for the road - theyre not interested. I had actually typed out a longer reply earlier but on clicking the post reply button it gave me an error, am not going to type it all out again because I fear it will be a wasted cause anyway, BUT - In hindsight - may the number of ignorants multiply, may concepts be dealt with disinterest if not meant for the road, all the more better for someone like me who knows what the concept of a concept is all about! ps - I have still not mentioned TVS or the 2 machines shown...or whatever anyone thinks they would rather be called, if not a concept or prototype, not that it matters because that never formed the basis for my post in the first place! As for the pics - I would like to say here that I know the member personally and there is NO doubting his credibility, he is someone who can be trusted implicitly! yes Diesel that does mean the pics were good, as a matterof fact, get a DSLR!!!

    Hi Guys

    Viper - welcome! to the Jungle!! See you around buddy.
  6. Synner Lets call it the ultra mini (ps - if Tata lifts the name from this post, please remind me to file for royalty! )
  7. FRG - How about a free flow exhaust to go with it? ;-) Please call me for a demonstration and test drive
  8. FRG - always say a prayer of thanks for your good fortune buddy, everyone is alive and well, thats all that matters!
  9. Hatch - Optra SRV 2.0 TDCi (just launched I think!) Sedan - Ford Mondeo MUV - Toyota Innova SUV - Mercedes GL450 (not that I can afford one, but man its sweet!)
  10. its quite startling to see the lack of foresight amongst the younger gen bikers (??), of course, todays concepts can never become tomorrows reality now can it! *cough* BKing *cough* How about starting a thread on the benefits of concepts in terms of generating some publicity, excitement, "show off strength (designing/R&D), and of course, most importantly showcasing it to check feedback on feasibility of making it a reality! Oh well! Ignorance is bliss I guess! Diesel - Lucky you!!! That isotoproton thingy looks juicy dont it!! nice pics :-) next time take hawk along too!

    Hello

    Sadsack - welcome sir, to the Jungle! Nice to see you here! Synner - yup, all the right kinda crowd! :-)
  12. Am for reps! And make sure the older members start with some 3408734560 +ve ones while they are at it
  13. Gurkha - Absolutely agree, who says we arent united, one looka t auto drivers can put a patriot to shame! :-) but, not if you catch one or two and start pasting the living daylights out of them before anyone can react, the rest just stand and watch, trust me, I was part of one such scuffle outside Mallya hospital (bangalore) just couple of weeks back, am not proud of getting physical with anyone, but this one holds a very special place in my heart... why? I was bullied (unsuccessfuly) into breaking a red light, while I was waiting patiently on the side of the road in the pouring rain at 10 30 at night waiting for it to go green. I paid no attention to the horn, jibes, abuses hurled from behind me (although the entire right lane was free) but lost my head when one followed me and picked a fight (this is a brief of why and what) once the lights turned green (very smart move from them, trying to bully a helpless (at least they thought) biker into breaking the signal so that in case there are cops, they could go scot free as they were only following! FRG - excellent choice of post! Your thoughts on the same? Of course you own a truck so you could just run over them ;-) us bikers have to fight for our survival! :-D For thos interested, I HAVE a rather RADICAL view with regards to auto rickshaws and their drivers, radical because I used to hate them, now I LOVE them, why? spend a few minutes reading this to know WHY - http://askmaximus.blogspot.com/2007/08/autorickshaws-your-best-friend.html Id have posted the entire article here, but its rather long, apologies.
  14. Everyone - Now who wouldnt want a piece of biking royalty! Synner - wonderful as usual!

    fav car chase

    No one here likes Mad Max? I must admit I did find the harley chase in Lethal Weapon 3 quite entertaining (although my judgement could have been clouded by the fact that I am quite a fan of mel gibson and harleys)
  16. FRG - you didnt try out the hand brake? Nice little drift scene, with the audience/spectators clapping as you come to a halt sideways, 2 wheels in the air, a second before contact! On a serious note - we need awareness, we need commitment, we need to use Forums such as Autocar where people come together, and then embark on a journey of conversion, bring about the change we so desire, educate people about road safety from jay walking to high beams to drunk driving!
  17. I have no clue what youre talking about mate

    Hello & Hi!

    Not waste buddy, its their responsibility to move your topic and give it a new topic status, after all your a new member, with a new introduction! Still, welcome once again, congratulations on booking an awesome bike!
  19. er sorry, I know its OT, but now that Synner has mentioned it, by all means check out http://monoshock.in , its got some good stuff, fledgling bike e mag, some good guys running it, and of course our very own FIRST SYNN is one of the columnists, thats right folks, we have a celebrity in our midst!
  20. Synner of course, although time is scarce, will be online a bit ,your synnerness!

    Hello & Hi!

    Praveen - welcome! to the Jungle! you should have started a new thread mate! will the Admin please do the needful?
  22. Synner! you know what, welcome..... to the pub!!! People - synner also runs one godawesome blog, check it out sometime!
  23. LoudPipe - absolutely buddy, the Busa has a rep, but IMHO, a Kwacker has infamy (that somehow appeals more to me!), look at it from the early GPZ days down to the latest ZX10R, and we havent even mentioned a certain Z1 yet!! I dont know mate, for sheer ear pleasure, a Kwacker strikes all the right notes, for me the rest of the jap big 4 sound almost the same, bees, too much of a cliched drone! As for the ride, am sure the ZX14 out 2009/10 will be the ONE to watch out for! (simply because Suzuki seem to be in 2 minds, should they, shouldnt they!), now if only Honda took the Blackbird back to the drawing board!
  24. Diamond studded odo eh? Sweet, whats the Exhaust made of, Platinum?
  25. Well, my choice BIKE India, wasnt on the list, so I took the liberty voting for the next best mag which carries decent Bike Stuff, which is BSM.... Having said that, I would like to say here that even BIKE, or BSM for that matter have a long way to go before they can touch the intl ones, but heck cant complain with whats on your plate, so those 2 it is I guess! No offense to the rest of the participants, its just that none of the other mags carry any decent bike stuff! As a matter of fact, what say we all pool in and start one? cc Diesel, Zavo, Hawk, FRG (surprise entrant!)
