racer updates:

the rear section has been chopped off.
that includes the suspension mounts on the top, seat mount rear foot rest mount

I am getting a very clear picture as to what the bike will look like wid a cleaner frame

next i am going to remove the rear engine mount and the vertical tube which extends to the top from there. new engine mounts will be designed with rubber mounts and the swing arm pivot will be brought down by 3 inches.

pics will follow soon!


The internal combustion engine now more than a 100 years old, has evolved at various stages. From the type of fuel to the metal it is made of.  The engine though, now technologically far superior to its first form,  is still basically the same working principle. PULL-COMPRESS-BURN-EXPAND. This has not changed over the years. Though the countless scientists and engineers have grayed their hair making the motor churn more beef, the end result is still not too bright.
          So what next? well i will take it for granted that you know a bit about combustion chambers and more about chamber nomenclature. IF YOU DONT, then please make the  best use of wikipedia.

Coming to uncle Sing. He was able to help solve a very important problem. The un-burnt HC accumulation in the deck volume of a squished combustion chamber. I came across his work thanks to a friend ( more like elder  brother) Arunesh. He (dr. sing) would simply cut a groove that would let combusting gasses flow through and burn the HC.

One would ask whats so special about a groove? Well the answer is simple. It is AN INNOVATION! a groove is not a component. Its a technology which gracefully reduces the disadvantages of a squish type head and makes a engine not only perform better but actually run cleaner and leaner.

A Mothers love !!!!

A Mother loves right from the start.

She holds her baby close to her heart.
The bond that grows will never falter.
Her love is so strong it will never alter.

A Mother gives never ending love.
She never feels that she has given enough.
For you she will always do her best.
Constantly working, there's no time to rest.

A Mother is there when things go wrong.
A hug and a kiss to help us along.
Always there when we need her near.
Gently wipes our eyes when we shed a tear.

So on this day shower your Mother with Love.
Gifts and presents are nice but that is not enough.
Give your Mother a day to have some peace of mind.
Be gentle, be good, be helpful, be kind.

More to sell nothing much to tell.....

It was a time when people used know what is happening across the globe even without looking at a photograph. Truth was all they would understand and the concept of lies was inexistent. Mind the tenses my friends...yes I am talking about the past where people used to know nothing about buildups and lies . They were least bothered about TRP (television rating points).

So what is TRP?

It is a criterion that indicates the popularity of a channel or program and is useful for the "advertisers".

What this means is that now news channels do not really compete for getting the best news....they compete for getting the best TRP. Selfish gain?? yes of-course. More the TRP, more the channel earns! But what about the people who depend on the channels ability to give them their daily dose of what is really happening...well they get their dose all rite...they get their daily dose of OVERCOOKED, OVERSPICED BULLSHIT!

Journalist today genuinely do not have the conscience that the old school guys used to have. They have literally forgotten the meaning of the term NEWS. Rather they have created a new term "news ENTERTAINMENT" . Where the real story is actually not even worth a dime but it is stretched beyond all boundaries and exaggerated beyond recognition. Will they ever wake up? Is there a way to sue them for mass miss-interpretation?


Well as one of the authors in the blog, I also like to cite this as an example. Am currently in Melbourne, Australia as a student. Basically am from India.
I was sad to hear about the news that said how Indian students were treated in Australia and Australians were called as racist. I happened to be in India at the end of prev year (2009) when this news made the headlines over there and created a bad impression about Australia among Indians. But i was shocked, really shocked to see the amount of lies and build ups in that news.

Since i was here in melbourne I say there were few issues that happened here and also it depends on the way our people behave with Aussies. Its really bad to put the full blame only on the Australians. Our Indians are not Innocent. We are to be equally blamed. Why to Unnecessarily blame some one else and make all bad news when are own people are not correct..

FROM ONE TIP TO THE OTHER....the wish ride...
