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.

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?
JOURNALISTS OF THE DAY...WAKE UP OR SAY TO URSELF...I AM NO BETTER THAN A FELLON WHO FOOLS PEOPLE!
Riding to us is not only a way to explore the beauty of the world....it is a way to calm our nerves down.
It removes the negativism and adds a lot of positive energy to the body (no jokes). So whats it gotta do with a blog post? well July 2011 is gonna be the "TiP to tIp"ride...dint follow?
well we re going to ride down from the sunrise at kanniyakumari to the very northern tip of India. The worlds highest road...LEH.
I would like suggestions from interested people about their personal addition or way that they would like to take this ride forward..
pls write in your comments below and confirm.
an updated list of participants shall be sent to you as and when sufficient modifications are made.
From standstill 60kmph is reached in 3.8 secs as compared to the usual 4.2 . Since these figures were achieved without any involvement with the powerplant, I was sure to max out soon. And I did too.
so what next?? well the bike is kinda craving for more. so i am gonna sneak the bike into my room and start the work soon....
keep visiting the blog to find out more!
I believe that there is so much that we males dont do intentionally but just happens because of the generations of dna that has been followed by us!
a skull half kevlar!
not often does it happen that parents or loved ones prohibit their loved ones from riding a bike. The reason is not far from normal....its the constant fear of their kin getting hurt,injured or god forbid KILLED!
But one fails to forget that the world will be filled with people in anti-bacterial,radiation suits if would see the invisible danger around us!
Getting back to riding... a person who is born to rule the roads will do so regardless of obstacles such as parents or spouse or girlfriend(s) coming in their way... riders have always been outlaws...they have always defied limits. But even the bravest of warriors have had enough muscle inside their heads to wear some armor!
Probably the best move i made in my riding career so far(apart from choosing the career itself) was to go for a rated helmet. Even knights fall from horses...and to tell you honestly horses do have better sense as compared to a brainless bike!
You are heading for trouble if u don't wear the very piece of equipment that is designed to save you incase you fall! Even though i have been driving in a very precise manner...At times i have fallen and fallen bad! but never have i suffered as much as a scratch on my head. thanks to my helmet.
Btw i wear a SHARK S650 live graphics. A wonderful piece of equipment that really fits well and ventilation inside is plenty. Yes motoGP standard does not come cheap but is definitely is a small price to pay for ones life!
We pay so much to get silly stickers, multi-tone horns, neon lights , led's and what not rubbish on our bikes ...BUT STOP FOR A MINUTE AND ASK YOURSELF, WILL ANY OF IT SAVE ME IF I FALL?
Go and buy a decent helmet before you ride!
Well this is an awesome thing i came across in pune thanks to a friend; pondy who was kind enough to force me to go to planet DSG. Though i was almost spellbound by the humongus variety of accessories kept in the neatly stacked shelves, i was carrying almost no dorsh in my pocket to even dream about getting something for me.
And just when i decided not to buy anything.....i saw it...the piece of cloth in black with white print. A typical face mask that is meant for half face helmets but does fit snugly into a regular full facer. Though it had a slightly tight fit on my face the design (scary for many), i decided to go for it coz it was an awesome addition to my really short accessory list.
On pure ergonomics point of view i would give it 6 on 10 but functionality is simply amazing. It keeps all forms of pollution off my face; well atleast off my nose and mouth!
Plus when a small kid or and old aunty sees me coming on my vint-ride, i swear the jidders i see on their faces..Priceless!
