after nearly 9286 arghh i did not even finish the 10.ooo km travelling through India “IT” happened 🙁
A stupid car/Autorikscha driver came to close to my lane on NH7 when i was driving towards Nagpur. Only 60km before i reached my Hotel i was crashed 🙁 So currently i will do no further sightseeing etc…which is worth to report so far … i´m busy otherwise 🙁
He came just up in front of me when there was a diversion and the 4 lane road went to a single lane.. i was just able to evade and he hit me hard on the right side of the bike ripping the right cylinder covering of and destroying the bike engine etc…. 🙁 He nearly hit me frontal that would not be fun………
Police was very helpful i have to say and i took away the other drivers car key as he wanted to disappear… before he could get too angry that i took the keys the police came…. But i doubt that it makes any sense that they have his name number etc….
Pics can be found here:
Fortunately nothing serious happened to me !! Just my left elbow needs some further examination at Dehli (or germany were i will head to asap) as i can´t stretch it full at the moment…..
But now the transport of the bike to Delhi must be organized… and it must be evaluated if i should/can/must bring the bike back to germany or if it isn´t worth at all (waiting for reply from my Bike Dealer and his mechanics in germany as far as they can tell something through the pictures…) …. I have to check out too many things…this is just to inform you…
I have very great help by a working colleague and her husband (THANKS a lot) as they have contacts all over India… So currently i´m waiting to get contacted for the further bike transpost etc….. i can´t tell how much this is worth to know to have these contacts and friends helping in situation likes this……. also the support from my girlfriend and family is great….!!!
See you all soon in Germany….
Feels so bad seeing the bike destroyed/damaged after going all well the long way round India…. i always knew that are freaks on the road and i drove carefully but this was to close for a frontal crash 🙁 I´m just lucky that so far nothing bad happened to me…………… all other is just money & metal….
nevertheless i´m sad 🙁
