the rider becomes "the tester"

last saturday i met my good friend KJ who runs the Cramster gear co.... we were sitting and chatting about things in general, biking, bikers and the likes. i had dropped to his office to pick up a pair of touring gloves for my coming ride from Bangalore to Ahmedabad. well, he didn't have the gloves in stock :( phooey!

when i spotted a pair of great looking boots at his store, i asked him details about them and he said that this is the 'test pair' of the boots he is planning to launch soon! he just wanted someone to test them on a longish ride across different situations and terrains and give him an update on the same.

i guess lady luck was smiling extra hard on me that day, he offered the pair to me for testing upon the condition that i give him a proper feedback on the same....

BTW, if you want to know what all the boots endured read my travelogue here

so here is my feedback for the Cramster touring boots.

1) Quality - the build quality of the boots is pretty impressive, fits snug on the feet and rises all the way to the shins (just where the knee protector of the riding pants end) the grip is an anti-slip material, the similar we see on the tecnic boots.
2) Comfort - the boots have a breathable liner all along the inside and a water resistant 'rubbery' material on the outside so even if you ride through rains or put your foot in a puddle, there is no water slipping or seeping in your feet giving you the squishy-squashy feel.
3) Style - the most important aspect for someone like me, do the boots look good on me when i wear them? HELL YEAH! they are drop dead gorgeous! in fact, i already got too many offers from a lot of people to buy this pair from me.
4 VFM (Value For Money) - perfect! something that i'd buy and not regret later, and as far as after sale service is concerned, i've had really good experienced from this one brand so no hassles here.

a few things that i might suggest though for the coming models are:

> Toe gear shift plate - something like a small strip of rubber with deep grooves on it near the toe, so that the gears and the brakes can be engaged even with the side of the foot.

>detachable / or / smaller crash knobs - there are these 2 bulbs of plastic protuding on the external side of the boot which i guess should be detachable for the 'tourers' as they wouldn't scrape their bikes and their boots so low (IMO)i must say that these would be perfect for the motocross or the racing bikers tho.

>reflective tapes on the back - i feel that if the boots have a small reflective piece at the back of the boot just above the ankle, it might be really helpful for those who ride without a decent pair of riding pants, the reflector not only looks good but increases all the chances of visibility (which is very important for night riding)

well, i honestly can not think of more suggestions for this product, it is something you just want to wear and start riding.

kudos to Cramster once again!

Love with his Love

here is a pic clicked by a great friend... i liked the title he gave.... LOVE WITH HIS LOVE :-)

thanks so much for the picture Doc. Raval!!!!!


So here I was rambling away at my comp trying to figure out what I was doing here and not having fun outside…. I get a flash msg on the screen “-XH- commented on your post” I check the comment and findout that this dude has tagged me… WOW! My first ‘official’ tag ever?!!

So now I gotta write about my new year resolution….

WTF? Resolutions? New Year? Haven’t done that in over 5 years now… well I do keep making stupid resolutions that I break most of the times but haven’t made a specific new year resolution in a while… don’t even know what to decide on.

Okay, so on a serious note… I guess I do want to make a resolution. And make sure I stick to it! This year (onwards) I want to start living for a reason… start thinking about the future! And stop my usual ‘live-for-now’ BS.

Want to be clear on what I want, when I want and what will I do to get it…

Have to start saving money for the future… want my parents to retire soon and chill at home; maybe send them out on really nice vacations and cruises! This is not a new year resolution but more of a five year plan (or maybe a life long plan) but I’ll want to stick to it :)

January 1 onwards, I’m gonna change a lot of things that are happening right now and start concentrating on my life, my family and my future…

MEN - the 'blessed' sex :)

was having a conversation with an 'eternal feminist' about equality amongst men and women... personally i don't think too much abot it all! its just too much to decide who is equal or who is not... for me, if you can do the job do it, don't compare...

after the conversation though, i thought of these points that i thought will share...

Men Are Just Happier People. What do you expect from such simple creatures?

- Your last name stays put.
- The garage is all yours.
- Wedding plans take care of themselves.
- Chocolate is just another snack.
- You can never be pregnant.
- You can wear a white T-shirt to a water park.
- You can wear NO shirt to a water park.
- Car mechanics tell you the truth.
- The world is your urinal.
- You never have to drive to another gas station restroom because this one is just too icky.
- You don't have to stop and think of which way to turn a nut on a bolt.
- Wrinkles add character.
- Wedding dress $5000. Tux rental-$100.
- People never stare at your chest when you're talking to them.
- New shoes don't cut, blister, or mangle your feet.
- One mood all the time.
- Phone conversations are over in 30 seconds flat.
- A five-day vacation requires only one suitcase.
- If someone forgets to invite you, he or she can still be your friend.
- Three pairs of shoes are more than enough.
- You almost never have strap problems in public.
- You are unable to see wrinkles in your clothes.
- Everything on your face stays its original color.
- The same hairstyle lasts for years, maybe decades.
- You only have to shave your face and neck.
- You can wear shorts no matter how your legs look!
- You can "do" your nails with a pocket knife.
- You have freedom of choice concerning growing a mustache.
- You don't freakout when you go to a party and see another man wearing the same shirt,instead you become buddies.

No WONDER men are happier...!!!

Blog Personality

i've been having a bit of 'free time' on my hands these days and i utilise it on my own blog and surfing through random blogs and stuff.... stumbled across this link that tells your 'blog personality'...

hmm, interesting! let's see what they say for my blog?

Your Blogging Type Is the Private Performer

Your blog is your stage - with your visitors your adoring fans.
At least, that's how you write with your witty one liners.
And while you like attention, you value your privacy.
You're likely to have an anonymous blog - or turn off comments.

now, this is what they say about lil ol me!
Your Rising Sign is Aries

You're full of energy - and people look to you to get the party started.
Confident and honest, you'll be the one to say what everyone is thinking.

You are easily bored, and you always find unique ways to do things.
You don't just dream it, you do it. And that's why you're so successful.

Too intense for some, often times people are intimidated by you.
But you're usually smart enough to charm them anyway!

really HONEST answers to a job interview

been thinking a lot since i started taking interviews for my current employer... would i also answer all the questions the same way?

well, here is my version of the typical answers... hope no head hunter reads them! :p

1. Why did you apply for this job?
> I have applied for many jobs along with this and you called me now.

2. Why do you want to work for this company?
> I have to work for some company who ever gives me a job, I don't have any specific company in mind.

3. Why should I hire you?
> You have to hire some one, you may give me a try.

4.What would you do if this happened?
> Well, it depends my mindset and mood at that situation...

5.What is your biggest strength?
> Basically, daring to join any company who pays me well, without thinking of the fate of company

6.What is your biggest weakness?
> Girls

7.What was your worst mistake, and how did you learn from it?
> Joining my earlier company and learnt that I need to jump to get more money, so I am here today

8.What accomplishments in your last position are you most proud of?
> Had I accomplished any in my last position, why do I need to change my job? I could demand more and stay there.

9.Describe a challenge you faced and how you overcame it?
> Biggest challenge is answering the question "why are you looking for a change" and I started blabbering irrelevantly to overcome that.

10.Why did you leave/ are you leaving your last job?
> For the same reason why you left your earlier job

11.What do you want from this job?
> If no work is given but keep giving good hikes

12.What are your career goals and how do you plan to achieve them?
> Make more money and for that keep jumping companies for every 2 yrs

13.Did you hear of our company and what do you know of us?
> Yeah, I know that you will ask this, I've gone through your website

14.What is the salary expected and how do justify that?
> Well, no one will change job for the same salary, hence, give me 20% extra than what I am getting and that is unpublished industry standard
(I know you will bargain on what ever I ask, hence, I have already hiked my current salary by 30%)

The rules of MANHOOD!

since i posted the GUY RULES, women are pretty clear about what guys want and how to deal with things...

here is the second installment which is targeted for the MEN! the rules that HAVE to be followed...

so here is my list!

1: Don't call. Ever.

2: It is OK for a man to cry ONLY under the following circumstances:
(a) When a heroic dog dies to save its master.
(b) The moment Angelina Jolie starts unbuttoning her blouse.
(c) After wrecking your boss' car.
(d) When she is using her teeth.

3: Under no circumstances may two men share an umbrella.

4: Be as ambiguous as possible..

5: If you've known a guy for more than 24 hours, his sister is off limits forever unless you actually marry her.

6: Moaning about the brand of free beer in a buddy's fridge is forbidden. However complain at will if the temperature is unsuitable.

7: No man shall ever be required to buy a birthday present for another man. In fact, even remembering your buddy's birthday is strictly optional. At that point, you must celebrate at a strip bar of the birthday boy's choice.

8: On a road trip, the strongest bladder determines pit stops, not the weakest.

9: When stumbling upon other guys watching a sporting event, you may ask the score of the game in progress, but you may never ask who's playing.

10: You may flatulate in front of a woman only after you have brought her to climax. If you trap her head under the covers for the purpose of flatulent entertainment, she's officially your girlfriend.

11: It is permissible to drink a fruity alcohol drink only when you're sunning on a tropical beach... and it's delivered by a topless model and only when it's free.

12: Only in situations of moral and/or physical peril are you allowed to kick another guy in the nuts.

13: Unless you're in prison, never fight naked.

14: Friends don't let friends wear Speedos. Ever. Issue closed.

15: Tell her you will call. Then, refer back to rule #1.

16: Women who claim they "love to watch sports" must be treated as spies until they demonstrate knowledge of the game and the ability to drink as much as the other sports watchers.

17: A man in the company of a hot, suggestively dressed woman must remain sober enough to fight.

18: Never hesitate to reach for the last beer or the last slice of pizza, but not both, that's just greedy.

19: If you compliment a guy on his six-pack, you'd better be talking about his choice of beer.

20: Never join your girlfriend or wife in discussing a friend of yours, except if she's withholding sex pending your response.

21: Phrases that may NOT be uttered to another man while lifting weights:
(a) Yeah, Baby, Push it!
(b) C'mon, give me one more! Harder!
(c) Another set and we can hit the showers!

22: Never talk to a man in a bathroom unless you are on equal footing: i.e., both urinating, both waiting in line, etc. For all other situations, an almost imperceptible nod is all the conversation you need.

23: Never allow a telephone conversation with a woman to go on longer than you are able to have sex with her. Keep a stopwatch by the phone. Hang up if necessary.

24: The morning after you and a girl who was formerly "just a friend" have carnal, drunken monkey sex, the fact that you're feeling weird and guilty is no reason for you not to nail each other again before the discussion about what a big mistake it was occurs.

25: It is acceptable for you to drive her car. It is not acceptable for her to drive yours.

26: If you don't like a girl, don't tell her. It's more fun to let her figure it out by herself.

27: The girl who replies to the question "What do you want for Christmas?" with "If you loved me, you'd know what I want!" gets an Xbox. End of story.

28: There is no reason for guys to watch Ice Skating or Men's Gymnastics. Ever. Any attempt to coerce a man into watching either is an instant pass for him to go to either the hardware store or the sporting goods store.

We've all heard about people having guts or balls. But do you really know the difference between them? In an effort to keep you informed, the definition of each is listed below.

"GUTS" is arriving home late after a night out with the guys, being assaulted by your wife with a broom, and having the guts to say, "are you still cleaning or are you flying somewhere?"

"BALLS" is coming home late after a night out with the guys smelling of perfume and beer, lipstick on your collar, slapping your wife on the ass and having the balls to say, "You're next!"

How to answer unusual questions asked to Indians!

a lot of friends off late are going 'offshore' to different countries and different locations... here are the funny questions they get flooded with, and my take of the answers you shoulg give...

keep in mind that once you give these answers they might never ask you anything EVER!

Q. What does that red dot on women's forehead mean?
A. Well, in ancient times, Indian men used to practice archery skills by target practicing by aiming at their wife's red dot. In fact, that is one of the reasons why they had many wives. You see, once they mastered the art of archery and hit the target....

Q. You're from India? I have read so much about the country. All the wonderful places, the forests, the snake charmers, the elephants. Do you still use elephants for transportation?
A. Absolutely. In fact we used to have our own elephant in our house. But later, we started participating in elephant-ride sharing schemes with our neighbors, to save the air. You see elephants have an "emissions" problem.....

Q. Does India have cars?
A. No. We ride elephants to work. The government is trying to
encourage ride-sharing schemes.

Q. Does India have TV?
A. No. We only have cable.

Q. Are all Indians vegetarian?
A. Yes. Even tigers are vegetarian in India.

Q. How come you speak English so well?
A. You see when the British were ruling India,they employed Indians as servants. It took too long for the Indians to learn English. So the British isolated an "English-language" gene and infused their servants' babies with it and since then all babies born are born speaking English.

Q. Are you a Hindi?
A. Yes. I am spoken everyday in Northern India.

Q. Do you speak Hindu?
A. Yes, I also speak Jewish, Islam and Christianity.

Q. Is it true that everyone there is very corrupt?
A. Yes, in fact, I had to bribe my parents so that they would let me go to school.

Q. India is very hot, isn't it?
A. It is so hot there that all the water boils spontaneously. That is why tea is such a popular drink in India.

Q. Are there any business companies in India?
A. No. All Indians live on the Gandhian prinicples of self-sufficiency.
We all make our own clothes and grow our own food. That is why you see all these thin skinny Indians -- it is is a lot of hard work.

Q. Indians cannot eat beef, huh?
A. Cows provide milk which is a very essential part of Indian diet. So eating cows is forbidden. However in order to decrease the population of the country, the government is trying to encourage everyone to eat human meat.

Q. India is such a religious place. Do you meditate regularly?
A. Yes, sometimes I meditate for weeks without food and drink. But it is difficult to keep my job, because I have to miss work when I meditate like that. But the bosses there do the same thing. That is why things are so inefficient there.

Q. I saw on TV that people there walk on burning coals. Why do they do that?
A. We don't have shoes. So we burn the botton of our feet to make it hard so that we can walk.

Q. Why do you sometimes wear Indian clothes to work?
A. I prefer it to coming naked.

saw something that makes sense!

i saw the following text as a blog on my mate -XH-'s blog... i've copied the body of the blog and made changes on how i'd comment on it :)

here goes...

Got a fwd email abt life – the things in bracket are my responses . A kind of small retrospection.


Have a firm handshake.
(I do, but not to prove my 'macho' worth)

Look people in the eye.
(make sure they are not intimidated tho)

Sing in the shower.

Own a great stereo system.
(i hope a home-theatre and a worldspace receiver count in this!)

If in a fight, hit first and hit hard.
(try and avoid the fight, but if you hit... hit to draw blood)

Keep secrets.
(i beg to differ, my life is open, everyone knows everything about me... but, yes, i do keep secrets that others ask me to keep for them)

Never give up on anybody. Miracles happen everyday.
(waking up everymorning itself is a miracle!)

Always accept an outstretched hand.
(only if it's for friendship or asking for help)

Be brave. Even if you're not, pretend to be. No one can tell the difference.


Avoid sarcastic remarks.
(umm, too tough to do, i am sarcasm personified :( )

Choose your life's mate carefully. From this one decision will come 90 per cent of all your happiness or misery.
(ALL BULL! i met my life's mate and in 5 days we decided to get married... haven't regretted that decision even once!)

Make it a habit to do nice things for people who will never find out.
(if they don't find it out, why will you do it?)

Lend only those books you never care to see again.
(if you like books, don't ever lend them!)

Never deprive someone of hope; it might be all that they have.
(true - this is something i care a lot)

When playing games with ! children, let them win.
(will try not to cheat next time)

Give people a second chance, but not a third.
(give a chance only if you believe that the person has a potential to improve...)

Be romantic.
(i am...)

Become the most positive and enthusiastic person you know.
(just too tough to do sometimes)

Loosen up. Relax. Except for rare life-and-death matters, nothing is as important as it first seems.
(true - thing life taught me)

Don't allow the phone to interrupt important moments. It's there for your convenience, not the caller's.
(hmm, will remember it next time)

Be a good loser.
(but why?)

Be a good winner.
(no really, but why?)

Think twice before burdening a friend with a secret.
(if its a secret you care about, take my word... KEEP IT, DON'T SHARE)

When someone hugs you, let them be the first to let go.
(aise to chipke rahenge ghanto tak)

Be modest. A lot was accomplished before you were born.
(heh thanks to my parents :p)

Keep it simple.
(also, keep it real)

Beware of the person who has nothing to lose.
(hmm, still to find someone like this)

Don't burn bridges. You'll be surprised how many times you have to cross the same river.
(i know... still regret burning a lot of them bridges)

Live your life so that your epitaph could read, No Regrets
(that's the motto of my life!)

Be bold and courageous. When you look back on life, you'll regret the things you didn't do more than the one's you did.
(but dont be reckless)

Never waste an opportunity to tell someone you love them.
(do that a lot!)

Remember no one makes it alone. Have a grateful heart and be quick to acknowledge those who helped you.
(i do)

Take charge of your attitude. Don't let someone else choose it for you.
(hmm, need to work on this sometimes)

Visit friends and relatives when they are in hospital; you need only stay a few minutes.
(will surely try)

Begin each day with some of your favorite music.
(thanks to WorldSpace)

Once in a while, take the scenic route.
(heh, heh, do you follow me home?)

Send a lot of Valentine cards. Sign them 'Someone who thinks you're terrific.'
(received a lot them, but never sent one... will do it this year)

Answer the phone with enthusiasm and energy in your voice.
(Anser only if you feel like, otherwise dont take the call)

Keep a note pad and pencil on your bedside table. Million-dollar ideas sometimes strike at 3 a.m.
(i have a pen and a book :P)

Show respect for everyone who works for a living, regardless of how trivial their job.
(very true! RESPECT!!!! give it to get it)

Send your loved ones flowers. Think of a reason later.
(haven’t send any one flowers till now)

Make someone's day by paying the toll for the person in the car behind you.
(never tried)

Become someone's hero.
(I am)

Marry only for love.
(dont think too much to marry... things usually fall in place if 2 'sane' people get married to each other )

Count your blessings.

Compliment the meal when you're a guest in someone's home.
(muft ka khana hai yaar... taarif to karni padegi!)

Wave at the children on a school bus.
(some of them flip back a finger these days)

Remember that 80 per cent of the success in any job is based on your ability to deal
with people.
(that is the reason i am where i am )

Don't expect life to be fair.
