Bike riding is dangerous, especially in a country like ours where people break rules for fun, call police officers ‘Thullas’ and where passing a driving test is easier than passing a 1st-grade exam. We have a very bad road sense or I’ll say we don’t have a traffic sense at all and look at our roads, it is much better to cycle than to avoid stray animals relaxing on mid highways.
In a recently reported accident involving two superbikes and a Maruti car, one of the riders lost his life after his bike smashed into the car. The Kawasaki Versys 650 rider succumbed to the injuries on his way to the hospital while the Daytona rider and the car driver got severely injured but survived the accident.
While no one really knows what happened, few reports suggest that the car driver took a sudden U-turn in front of the bike riders and as a result both the riders collided into the car. The images reveal how strong the impact must have been as the car can be seen badly thrashed while the bikes are torn apart as well. We offer our condolences to family and friends of the Kawasaki rider.
