This post is based on my recent story with the Black Macho. I had recently bad accident when i go to my office. Truly this was 90% my mistake. I don’t know, that day i was feeling good with this macho. Maybe one day before, macho had been serviced in Main Dealer (Buah Batu) after almost 4 months. So, i ride more faster than usually. But when i passed someone who ride Tiger, maybe he didnt want to be humiliated by motorcycle which cc is lower than he is. As you know … racing lah.
But unfortunately, while i was enjoying my ride (i know he could not pass the macho). I lost control. Suddenly damn duct motor in front of me, change its way. I reacted, but it was late. So, macho hit it, i try to deny the effect more fatal. Because i saw, that rider carry his kid. But, still macho got fall including me, of course. It hit my engine guard, and then fall a long the street. Thanks God. I was lucky. Engine guard cover me from that crush. And the important think, the tank is safe. Im still hurt, but just a little just my skin is bleeding, and muscle (maybe shock).
Thats my story. I’m thinking what would happen if macho doesnt have Engine Guard. Engine Guard is very important for rider and the vehicle from effect of the worst accident.
Thats why, i still dont understand, why that the important think Engine Guard, but TVS motor company Indonesia think different.
So, time will tell.
