It’s been awhile since my last article, but I’m happy to be back, and, since she’s reading, I want to give a thanks to my Examiner.com channel manager for helping me get going again. So…without further ado, let’s get going again.
When I took a ride in a taxi, I noticed that there were no outside rear view mirrors. It seems that the drivers in Hyderabad pass each other so closely that mirrors would get broken off, so they just remove them. Instead of using the mirrors, everybody is supposed to toot their horn before passing. The taxi, which is a car, goes faster than the many auto rickshaw, bicycles, and animals. That means the driver is always passing, and the constant horn tooting drove me crazy for a few days, until I got used to it.

Other presents enjoyed by men are GPS systems, watches that act as cameras, video phones and home theater units such as the Denon AV-1911 receiver. If you feel like splurging this year, check out the new 3D televisions for a total home theater experience.
The Honda Ruckus is quickly becoming the El Scooter to have to try and push to 50+MPH. The Honda reliability in the chassis and engine beckon tinkerers to make it faster. While not very common, increasing the bore of the Ruckus is starting to become popular; it offers great gains, but has some tradeoffs. The first tradeoff is time. The GET is a water-cooled engine and you have to take the cylinder off of the bike and take it down to a machine shop to bore out the cylinder to the size you need. Many machine shops are not capable of this because of how small the bore of the Ruckus is.
I’m in the process of buying a Narrowboat and the survey (which came beside the boat) has advised that the Transverse podium plate be grinded on the outside and re-weld from the outside. The reason for this is when the boat was built it be only welded…
If you are an American visiting Hyderabad or any other part of India, I do not recommend renting a car and driving. Drivers and taxis are pretty cheap, especially compared to the cost of frayed nerves! The day before I left the village to return to Hyderabad from Vijayawada, it rained. I mean it really rained a monsoon. This made driving extremely difficult. As you can see from the picture above, when driving through a small town it was almost impossible to figure out where the road was, except that it was between the buildings on each side! I was really glad that I was not driving.
