This is twice the tragedy. A motorcycle pizza delivery rider was killed while doing his job.
Don't forget to tip your delivery driver. Their jobs are more perilous than you might think.
And now, let's pretend there's a graceful segue into my rant about blind loyalty to a brand and motorcycling.
As you are probably aware, there are a lot of people out there who think that a particular American brand of motorcycle is superior to all others. In fact, people are so certain of the inherent excellence of this American brand that big box stores (who import nearly everything they sell from China. Irony?) sell a variety of merchandise with this motor company's logo to people who have never ridden a motorcycle, and never would for fear of a horrible, messy death.
Now, I'm certainly not going to say that this company doesn't build a quality product. Whether I agree with their merchandising is beside the point. My problem is with people who have never ridden anything saying that they wouldn't ride anything but this particular brand. Kudos to the motor company for excellent marketing, but shame upon the morons who think wearing a shirt that's available at any Super-Colossal-Mart in the United States makes them a non-conformist.
If you were to ask one of these asshats what motorcycling is all about, I bet he/she would tell you that it's about rebellion, freedom and individuality.
Look, I don't care if the bike you ride is built with pride in India; if you buy it because that's what all the other morons with new, lighter wallets tell you is a real bike instead of because you get a huge dumb grin just thinking about it, then kindly stay away from me. You obviously side-stepped the whole rebellion/individuality thing.
Say, I haven't had any pictures up for a while. Here are some gratuitous photos of a nesting VX800.
The VX800 in its natural environment.
Behold, the unblinking eye.
I hate to break it to you, but you really probably aren't cool enough to ride this bike. It would likely throw you off, run you over and leak something on you.
