“When what you are deeply passionate about, what you can be best in the world at and what drives your economic engine come together, not only does your work move toward greatness, but so does your life. For, in the end, it is impossible to have a great life unless it is a meaningful life. And it is very difficult to have a meaningful life without meaningful work. Perhaps, then, you might gain that rare tranquility that comes from knowing that you’ve had a hand in creating something of intrinsic excellence that makes a contribution. Indeed, you might even gain that deepest of all satisfactions: knowing that your short time here on this earth has been well spent, and that it mattered.”

Ride alongside the 1

Many might think I'm crazy, insane, immature...... but yes today for a short stint during my ride back home....... I was really very excited.

As I was crossing the Shushant Lok round about, I heard a heavy engine note..... distinct.... very distinct. I knew the engine note..... I can recognise the note even while I'm sleeping. I looked at my rear-view mirror and there it was..... a mighty black 2008 Yamaha YZF R1 was coming right behind me..... and vhroooooooom it crossed me!!

For a fraction of a second I was "Whoaaaaaa that was fast"!! But soon after crossing me the rider stopped and waved at me. I stopped besides him and he asked me the way towards Faridabad. I showed him the way, but he asked me if I'm going that way then could I show him the way a bit. I saw an opportunity and I grasped it, since I was really going that way.

So, then it start, for a good straight stretch of 2-3 km, it was the me and the R1 both riding side by side. I was really thrilled and excited just by the thought that I was pacing my bike with the mighty 1. The manner in which the rider was handling the monster was awesome. For not even a second I could see a sense of tension of handling a fully faired, 180bhp producing beast amongst crawling traffic. For more than once we looked at each other and shook our head in praise of each other's steed.

Unfortunately, this time the 2-3 km went by in a flash. I pointed him the way straight ahead and vhrooooooooooom...................... he was off!!

The R1 has been on my whishlist for quite some time now........ and I know for sure, I'm gonna own it!! :)
