Mr Dilip Bam is the best. He deserves a citation for his writing. Really, he is one of the most learned motorcyclists and erudite genuises India has ever produced.

Will someone please do us all a favour and [rest of sentence removed by blog author as being too accurate and inflammatory]

Thank you. I feel better already.

happy rider said...

c'mon. thats just his fun way of writing, and i find it an amusing way to read about bikes.. he has written in saner ways elsewhere which the other commentators in this post may find readable.
Futhermore, his writing does serve a purpose of explaining mechanics to people like me in a easy and fun way. Maybe you shouldn't take things so seriously and chill out a bit.
A snippet : THE SEKOND BiKE LONCHED IS THE 125 cc, THREE VALVE, (two nostrils, one ass-hole) "FLAME"

How can the three valves be explained in a more entertaining way?

Damn! Its still not racist enough for racist old me..

Hilarious ! I know Bam's deliberately writing like that but readability's completely down the drain .

@happy rider

you might have a point there..


Opps.. by the way it was meant "Sarcastic" and not "Scarcastic"

"And how exactly can a bike be racist?"

When they refuse you a 80% discount.

road-yo said...

Is this really Bam, or did he do another copy-paste job like last time?

I mean, this beats even his exalted standards!

This is the same genius who used to test scooters by putting a gas cylinder up front, back in his Auto India days.

The same guy who gave the splendor extra points for aerodynamics (over the Caliber) because it sported a sloper engine.

He knows Jack shit about bikes. And anybody who's adding a notch to his hit counter is doing a crime to humanity.

And the english language.

i think its funny and timepass

I think it is clear to everyone that Dilip Bam is writing like that purely to entertain the audience. He certainly knows better.

But it cannot denied that his writing makes for entertaining reading when one is in the mood and feeling a little bored.

I do not mind this 'characterful' style of his. It is nice to see a person who is not afraid of having a little juvenile fun; nowadays everyone is too serious.

Read some of his "BikeGuru" questions and answers and you'll realize that the people who submit the question are also having fun.

More power to Dilip Bam!

greySith said...

That article is a classic example of annoying readers so much that they would not read the article and miss out on the review of the new TVS bikes rather than break their heads over it...

Seriously, does he ever talk sense (except when he "lifts" from rearset ofcourse :p) ?

Hrishi said...

Come one guys... its supposed to be a joke. Take it as it is :)

God knows there is not enough humour in the world now a days :)

Bam Kicker said...

This guy should be locked up for good.

For all those Bam fans out there, here's some more laughs, from his Flyte review:

"FOR FUEL TEST YOU HAVE TO TAKE OUT THE SEAT AND FULL DiCKY, AND DO THE PiPE-GiRi NATAK AS PER MY UNGLi POiNTiNG VICH U KAN SEE IN FOTO. UNGLi IS POiNTiNG TO WHERE THE YELO PiPE OF MY MEASURiNG BOTTLE IS FiTTED TO NiPPLE OF KARBURETOR.
THE ACTUAL (dark color) PiPE WHiCH FiTS THERE IN NORMAL KONDiTiON HAS BEEN KLOZED BY SHOViNG IN THE RED SKRU-DRiVER KA MALE PART INTO THE PiPE HOLE to prevent petrol flow==leakage when riding. THE RED HANDLE OF THE SKRU DRiVER IS TiED WITH RASSI (desi-style) SO THAT THE SKRU-DRiVER DOES NOT FALL OFF DURiNG ACTUAL RiDiNG FOR FUEL TEST. POiNT TO BE NOTED IS THAT ""ALL ORiGiNAL PiPES ARE DARK IN KOLOR WHiLE THE LiGHT (yelo) KOLOR PiPE IS FROM MY MEASURiNG BOTTLE."

Bam Kicker said...

Oops, there's more:

"See the measuring bottle. In actual test, the bottle is not where you see it but it is stuck in the collar of my shirt and tied around my chest with rassi so that petrol does not spill out. Sorry no photo bkoz now I would luuk like a DONKi with load tied under it."

It does not give good mileage. It's just around 50 km/ltr. Too baddd... as the company claimed it to be much much more while selling! Not Fair
