A guy from Driven.pk contacted me and asked that they wanted to do a photo-shoot session of my bike. The shots were taken near Kalma Chowk Underpass, on the road towards Liberty. We had a lot of traffic flowing at the particular time and I believe it must have destroyed a lot of pics, but here are some cool clicks I received from Driven.pk.

YAMAHA has unveiled their R1 for the year 2015, they have fired all canons in the latest installment of the world superbike wars with the new R1, a bike that Yamaha is calling "the most MotoGP inspired bike ever." There has been a lot of changes made to the overall look of the bike; new aerodynamics, more aggressive styling and genuinely new look has been given to the lights. The bike produces a massive 200HP and wet weight is just under 200kg, quite an impressive power to weight ration. Some cool features of the bike include:
- Adjustable and user-programmable power delivery modes
- Lean angle sensitive traction control
- 4-stage slide control to manage powerslides
- 4-stage lift control to dial in your maximum wheelie settings
- Full-throttle launch control (one of the most terrifying experiences you can have on two wheels)
- Quickshifter for upshifts only
- Slipper clutch to keep the rear from losing traction on high-rpm downshifts
- Linked ABS braking designed to help keep the rear down under hard braking
- Adjustable front forks

GOVERNMENT is planning to cut the fuel prices by Rs.14 per litre as the new month starts. At $87 a barrel fuel prices have been gradually reducing in the international market but it will not be a matter of surprise if the N government takes this as an opportunity to claim it as a huge relief to the people by the government. Rest assured, if the prices are cut by Rs.14 as planned, it will take us to the fuel prices we had some four years ago, but how the automotive manufacturers see this reduction to their advantage is quite another story.

"THERE'S nothing like a shepherd's life", thought the boy, "I've seen so many places at my age which many would only dream and come of age. Not many know how mesmerizing it is to see the rising sun, especially with clouds trying to keep it covered, the scent of the morning breeze and the chirping of birds adding music to it. I love it all." But there's something that still makes him sad sometimes, "I love my cattle like nothing else and they know it too and that's why they keep around me, but why do I still feel all alone? Am I ever going to see the love I give return to me?" He shakes his head, "I can always watch the sunset on my own, I am a shepherd" the boy told himself.
