Bajaj Pulsar rider learns the importance of holding line while cornering – Video
YouTube video by InfoClone shows what happens when a rider fails to stick to his / her lane while taking on a corner, especially when there is no divider on the road.
The Bajaj Pulsar 220 rider in the video is seen taking on a corner on a ghat section. In his attempt to overtake the car in front, he probably missed noticing the oncoming tempo in time. He tries to move out of the way, the tempo driver is also seen steering in the opposite direction. This saves them from colliding head on.
What happens instead is the Pulsar 220 rider brushes on the side-rear of the tempo, and falls on the ground. His rider friend on CBR, who was just behind, crashes into the Pulsar 220 as well as its rider. Watch the video below.
One of the most important rules of riding / driving is to sticking to your lane. Even on straight roads, most accidents are due to the fact that you get out of your lane and go for that overtaking maneuver. Car or bike, whatever you drive or ride, please make it a point to stick to your lane, no matter what.
Speaking about accidents, recently a Bajaj Dominar 400 rider was riding at a high speed when the bus in front of him applied brakes suddenly. Unable to brake in time and ended up colliding with the bus’s rear. As the impact was made at a high speed, the crash resulted in the Dominar 400 ending up the bus’s rear.
Surprisingly, chassis of the Dominar has remained intact, so has the front forks, which probably took the full impact. What has been damaged, is the headlight assembly, handle bars, and tank cowls. The rider too is alright.
Yes, the build quality of Dominar 400 has done its job. But, speeding behind a bus, and that too inside a city, is not the right thing to do. If you are of the opinion that your bike has disc brakes, ABS, and you will manage to avoid any kind of situation, you are wrong. It is more important that you understand your bike, before taking it to its limits.
A few months back we had reported about the head-on collision between Bajaj Dominar 400 and Hyosung GT 650 in Delhi. It was reported that the Hyosung GT 650 rider were performing a high speed stunt at IIFT’s Dhaba lane, which is hardly 20 feet wide.
That morning, around 8-30 AM, the Hyosung GT 650R rider was preparing to perform a high speed stunt. The idea was to take the bike to a triple digit speed, and brake hard. The Hyosung rider saw the empty stretch and started with his stunt. Sadly, at one point, a scooter rider entered the lane. This made the Hyosung rider to switch lane. He then collided head-on with a Bajaj Dominar 400 rider who hardly had any time to move out of the fast oncoming Hyosung.
Riding the Bajaj Dominar was 20 year old Raman, who had been gifted the Bajaj Dominar by his father just a month ago. Riding Hyosung GT 650 was 27 year old Charles Brian who was riding with his friend Pradeep Nair.
Soon a large number of people gathered as there was a huge sound. The three – Raman, Brian and Pradeep were lying on the road badly injured. In fact, one of them had his leg broken and was hanging when people lifted and placed them into ambulance.
Of the three, Raman was the youngest. He succumbed to his injuries soon after reaching the hospital. He lost his life at no fault of his. When you overspeed, or perform dangerous stunts on road, you not only put your own life in danger, but also that of others.
Accessing powerful bikes is more easier than ever. More and more riders are getting acquainted to powerful bikes today. Not that this is a bad thing. But, riders who do not care about safety of their own or others, and fail to respect their machine, is a dangerous combination.
