My 2 cents:
No. reason for riding bikes fast:
The bikes are too uncomfortable and our roads are bumpy too... u can never exactly ENJOY riding ur bike to ur work with tensions on the head... On an easy, cool, low traffic, pollution free Sunday morning u can probably enjoy the ride.. but in ormal days u can't.
Our bikes have tinny tinny engines and they are light weight bikes- so there's not any good suspension - which results in:
The biker is forced to keep its bike in the noisey RPM range to match up with the traffic... even on avg speeds like 60~70Kmph.. a 70 would be using about 80-90% of its power and would shaking the rider like hell with its bad suspension!
Thus the rider, irritated by the engine noise, poor ride quality and the forcefull traffic is forced to ride rashly - actually get into the RASH mode.
Most of the 70 users are the worstest riders on the road!! They do so much nasty things with so much dhetai that i can just watch their faces and cannot believe it!
Newer and bigger bikes like CG125 deluxe and Suzuki GS150 and CD100 also... U'd find them less often doing this sorta stuff!
But 70s? My o my!!
I have a Yamaha Junoon which is comparatively more comfy too.. and i ride it far more safely than the CD70 guys.
To complement this all... please add that our nations avg decency level and education level and traffic sense is extremely low!!
So expect all the bikers to do nasty stuff and then they wouldn't even know that they did something wrong bcoz they don't have side view mirrors.
Car drivers on the other hand aren't any better....
They just wont move their A S S! I really mean that.. in scorching summers or harshest of the winters when a biker guy has got extreme flu, hes felling ill... after working all tiring day long, he has to come back in cold... he'd want to rush home and relax.
Whereas the car drivers, inside thier cabins enjoy ACs and heaters... and they also never use their side veiw mirrors or respond to horns of bikes...
I mean if ur enjoying ur ride on 40-50 speed? and someone wona get past u?Then why the hell u block the fast moving lane?
These are the no.1 reasons which result in bikers zig zaging and acting stupd!
