Ben's Corner #17: Monster among motorcycles, soon on road!

After close to a decade, legendary hyper sports bike, Suzuki Hayabusa is going to get a comprehensive update. In a fresh set of patents filed a couple of weeks ago, Suzuki has hinted that the Busa, for the first time in its life, is going to get a semi automatic gearbox, most probably, an optional bolt-on kit. That's not all, breaking into the territory of Kawasaki Ninja H2, the Busa is also going to get a force-fed engine with all the latest electronics as per sources.

Third Law #7: #ISupportCTC - When FB behaved more ethical than media

How a reporting duty ended up in rescue mission

If the heartrending screams of an elderly woman led to many others being rescued from St Joseph's Hospice at Paleswaram village in Kanchipuram district, my attempt to trace the two rescued persons, who were later abandoned, met with success owing to a lot of ‘lung power’ and ‘young power’.
