    I saw them during their rally, even rode a short distance a little behind their group. It was a very well organized one. They stuck to one lane and didn't block the roads and create problems for other users of the road. There was police escort front and back which was a sight to behold. Finally the cops are doing their job. Supporting these youngsters to hold a city ride was great initiative on part of the mangalore police. These youngsters must be further encouraged to hold more city wide rides such as these to promote road safety and personal safety. I'm eager to join the next one myself. Kudos to the organizers for taking the initiative!

    @prasanna: I'm sure you are a good citizen who does good for the society and nothing else. Next time, If you have nothing better to speak or contribute, keep your ignorance and unnecessary opinions to yourself.

    Ah !!! Thats the hayabusa in town !!!! and Mr. Mushtaq its about the safety awareness for the riders, how important is helmet while riding, we need this kind of awareness campaigns in our cities, we see our brothers around how they ride the bikes without safety gears. i am sure bhatkal also needs some of these.

    Great initiative from motoroids club to hold a rally to promote safe riding.
    @Mushtaq: Wasting fuel? Do you ride a bicycle urself? Instead of encouraging safe riding your going off topic and ranting about fuel. Grow up!

    Very true what Mushtaq is saying. Simply wasting fuel with unnecessary things. Likewise we should save on many things - drink only water, not alcohol since lot of water is used in making alcohol, don't spend money on giving kids vehicles - else wastage of petrol again, don't use personal vehicle to go to office, use bus or train system only, don't take vacations - relax at home and save your money. India shining!! At least these youngsters are trying to create the awareness of road safety. Give them that credit!
