Go Slow?? .. I dont think so!

Lately i've been hearing how going fast on my bike will ruin its engine and how my milege will suffer... I'm usually very safe on the road even if i keep consisntently hitting upper 60's in the city roads... {i ride a puny 110 CC TVS Victor GX (mag wheels) by the way.. he he }
So i decided i'll go easy on the throttle and check if i can get better milege...
Forget milege, i nearly got killed twice..
First, on a narrow road i take through the university, there was a group of cyclists ahead of me, and sincerely went to the side of the road, hoping they would take the next turn off the road...All was well till a maniac on an activa decided to play mad max and swerved rite into me... Thanks to pure luck and reflexes i never expected from me, i rode onto the footpath! {to avoid scratces on my bike- *matter of factly*}
Then later, two streets away from my college, a crazed indica driver comes roaring out of nowhere..!! after giving my horn and brakes a good work out, the fool actually has the ba!!s to smile at me!
And what do I tell my friends when i get to college? "yo.dude, I burnt some rubber today"
And all the while it was my funeral pyre that very nearly burnt!
Funny thing is that these kind of skirmishes arent there when i'm my happy 60's self...
I had enuf of these go slow rubbish.. I'm hitting the road how its safer for my health!.. Nothinh anyone says will slow me down!.. Except my brakes! {ok.. thats a bad joke.. but hey! }
To wind up for today:
I dreamed i was missing,
you were so scared...
Coz i had taken the loot money..
and that was YOUR share..
After my dreaming.
i woke with this headache...
What am i leaving...
when i clean up this place...
so if you're asking me i want you to know:
When my time comes,
forget the wrong that i've done..
Just get me to a damn hospital so thet can attempt CPR or anything else!
Dont resent me...
when youre feeling empty,
Hit the bar! Go heavy on the booze!
Leave out all the rest.., Leave out all the rest!!

Slogans like "speed kills" are meaningless, it's bad driving that kills, not speed.
