I am afraid of accidents, even more than my father's chittar lol. And for that reason, i brake TOO MUCH ... which for one, leaves me enough chance for emergency braking, and 2nd, I dont drive rash or too fast.
Another good reason i have not to drive too fast, is CG-125 ... not Deluxe, Classic one ... and if those owner agree with me here ... its brakes are gansta' like the bike itself. Marzi hay lag jaye, warna na lage.
i am so afraid of accidents that every single time i leave my house on my bike, i dont forget to recite Ayat-al-kursi and Safar ki Dua and i have a graveyard with my route out of my area so i never forget to greet them (i mean qabaron ko salaam).
I am so afraid of accidents that i use Helmet as MUST, and use Side Mirrors.
Even with all these precautions, baal baal bacha hoon bohat baar.
Like for once, i am going on Mall Road, easy at about 40km/h on open road, a crossing (chowk) comes with green signal ... and i am crossing it now ... suddenly a Yamaha wala apna signal tortay huway cross karta hay chowk ko, and SMASHHHH ... but hey, nothing happened. Baal baal bach gya.
Another time, i was 100+km/h on Canal Road ... and suddenly EVERY car in front of my lane, with a distance of with good enough distance, brakes to avoid some sort of accident which just happened at the very end. I applied brakes HARD ... but as everyone know the Gandi brakes of CG-125, it just refused to grip the tyres, and the bike kept going. I would've hit those cars infront of me and would've flew away lol ... until i felt that bike automatically slided a bit (Only a bit) from rear and the next thing i remember, zara si side pay ho k, bike had crossed those cars.
Its difficult to portray the exact scenario in words, but i tried.
Possible Reason: Ayat-al-kursi
The thing is, i've encountered i think 2 dozens of such type of accidents, but everytime i survived. And i have a strong belief k wo 70,000 farishtay hamesha meri hifazat karte hain everytime i get out there on road.
It may seem like a Childish or Too Religious or Non-Believable, but it IS true.
Another thing in Lahore, you guyz should keep in mind is yahan:
- Wo marta hay jo open road pay aaram say chalata hay, even if he is driving in left side.
- wo marta hay jo Crossings may se speed se guzarta hay
- Wo marta hay jo Cars k aagay aagay ya peechay peechay saath laga k rakhta hay.
... and so on
