Mototech Universal Bike Cleaner Review: A great motorcycle cleaner

We the motorcycle lovers love our motorcycles and love to flaunt them irrespective of their displacement and type. But these machines that we love so much are made for going to places. Places that get them dirty. Dust, grease, oil, dead insects, and bird droppings nothing stays behind to get our beloved machines covered in muck and stain. Moreover, not everyone likes to get their motorcycles cleaned in a service station. I was searching for a perfect motorcycle cleaning product for the enthusiasts like us, who like to get their own hands dirty to get the motorcycles cleaned. A product that would clean every possible stain and dirt there is. I did find a product, the Mototech Universal Bike Cleaner online but I was a bit skeptical about it.

So, how good is the Mototech Universal Bike Cleaner?

Hyundai Santro: First Impression: Good or Bad?


There has been a lot of buzz going on in the town about the come back of the tall-boy, Hyundai Santro. In its 2018 iteration and the gizmos that come along with it have enabled it to grab a lot of attentions. The "Rhythmical Tension" design philosophy gives the Santro a fresher and refined, yet Sporty image. The hopes are high as it brings a lot to the table without costing much. I was a bit sceptical if it could really meet the expectations of the people. And all thanks to Mukesh Hyundai , Guwahati (contact details are available at the end of the article) that I finally got the chance to lay my hands on the Santro 'Astra' to see myself if it could really live up to the "India's favourite family car" tag.

LED Headlight Bulbs : Good or Bad?



New generation cars and bikes are moving towards the use of LED headlight bulbs. There are two main reasons behind it; First, LED bulbs consume less power and second, they are brighter than conventional halogen bulbs. Also, LED headlights look aesthetically much better because of the bright white light beam than the halogen bulbs which throw yellow beam. LED bulbs also have a longer lifespan than the halogen bulbs. But there are still many vehicles, especially the entry-level vehicles which still come with halogen bulb headlights. This is mostly to cut the cost of the vehicle. So, the natural instinct of the owners of the vehicles with halogen headlight is to "upgrade" the headlight by changing the stock halogen bulb to a LED bulb to get brighter lights. But is it worth it?

What is Engine Braking?


ENGINE BRAKING:

The most common practice to slow down a vehicle is disengaging the clutch and applying the brakes simultaneously. Although very common this practice of braking is not efficient. It causes more wear in the brakes pads due to friction and heat, increases the stopping distance, and also might cause the wheels to lock and skid on the road especially if your vehicle does not have an ABS (Anti Lock Braking) system.

Treasured Wheels : Vintage Cars & Bikes Museum, Guwahati


It was 21st October, 2018 and one of our cousins had come to visit us. The major attraction behind his visit to our home this time was the vintage museum, 'Treasured Wheels' in Sonapur, Guwahati. It is owned and run by a common man who had and have been spending his hard earned money to setup something that people of Assam can be proud of. My cousin did not even know that this place existed until he saw a photo of a red old Mini Cooper that I had uploaded on my Instagram story. Since then, he heard a lot about this place from me.

Hyundai Santro 2018 : Things to know before its launch


The Hyundai Santro was easily one of India's favourite hatchbacks. It was known for its reliability, space, great engine, smooth transmission, and of course, the tall boy stance . Moreover, it did not cost a lot of money either. Although the Santro was a great car but, would have looked outdated in today's market and hence, the production of the Santro was put to an end in 2014. It disheartened many who would have loved to own this car. It was then replaced by the Hyundai i10 and like almost every Hyundai car, it was an instant hit.

Maruti Suzuki Autoprix : A Motorsport for all



Although I am late with this blog post, it was worth sharing it. India has never been known for being a country of motorsports but there are many who want to live their dream of being on a race track and feel the adrenaline rush at least once. There are not many places of the country which are blessed with 'race tracks' or motorsport clubs where you can live the dream of being a racer. Competing in any major motorsport events requires a lot of money. From preparing the car to the race equipment, it is a lot of money and specially if you do not have a sponsor to watch your back and you are all on your own, you might even not ever dream about it. But a new era of motorsports in India has began.

Durga Puja 2018 in Guwahati


As a little kid, arrival of Durga Puja meant days filled with joy; A visit to your aunts meant money for toffee or gifts; Autumn break at school for almost a week or more, and not to forget, shopping for clothes. But shopping in those days did not mean buying just any clothes, apart from being one or two sizes up, so that those remain wearable till next festive season; it should be full sleeve and probably of warm fabric. Those were the Durga Pujas of late 90s or early 2000s because Durga Pujas then also meant the arrival of shivering winters. Every part of the body except for the face would be covered in warm clothes in an attempt to beat the cold. A ride in a rikshaw from one 'pandal' used to make teeth shatter with cold breeze. But things have changed now.

Then you decided to open the throttle a little more and then suddenly a cow appeared from no where. Next thing you see is people surrounding you and you are lying on the road with your skin all bruised and bleeding. Blame the cow or the owner of the cow all you want but, if you had not worried about sweating, you would have been in a lot better condition. So, always invest in riding gears if you are a motorcycle rider because roads can be unforgiving.

ProBiker Riding Gloves : User Review


Majority of motorcyclist, specially in India ignore safety gears. Considering the high number of road accidents on Indian roads, it is disheartening to see safety gears being considered as not more than a joke by many. Helmets are only worn, when riders see a traffic police to avoid getting fined. To all those who are reading this article, it is my humble request to not follow such dangerous trends because a small head injury can be fatal.
Among many parts of the body, your hands are one of the major regions which come in contact with the ground during a motorcycle crash. The palm of your hands are delicate, and are vulnerable to serious injury during a slide in case of a crash. Therefore, proper protective gears are essential to protect your precious hands.
