my heart was pumping like a race car & my neurons are ordering my brain to turn around to take a glimpse of the bike & the person.
I chased him for a mile and pulled over my car. Now i got a clear picture of this Engineering Kid & his bike, I requested him for a picture, he accepted it and he made a round in the middle of the road where the car's were travelling at 40 miles/hour.
I thanked him and he left the place., while I was driving my car back home., I just had a glimpse where this guy is going, and I saw that he parked his bike in a small street., which is a dead end.
I was curious to see how he designed the bike, I drove down to the street., and got to know that he parked his bike for nature's call.
Now I decided to take more pictures of the bike & my interview started with the kid., he said that he was in 11th grade and is very fond of doing things like this at his home in his Garage & Basement. His dad used to be very angry at him.
He said that this bike is a 3 FrameBike and he designed on his own. He did himself the welding of the frames in his Garage.
The bikes(3) he got it from garage sale. He is a enviromental freak and says that nothing should be wasted, everything should be used at its best. He is a 100% pure vegetarian & doesn't eat meat.
I asked won't the cop hold him as it seems to my knowledge as 100% unsafe driving the bike in the street with cars' passing at 40 miles/hr.
He said even the cops also admire hitm & used to take pictures and only one lady cop has drilled him for half an hour & advised him to wear the helmet.
The way how he starts riding the bike is different story, he pushes the bike at a particular speed for a particular distance and he immediately climbs into the first frame(white) with his right leg & puts the other leg on the frame and as we do normal biking he gets into the seat and starts riding., for him the first frame is the land.
After taking the pictures, I thought of trying it once, so i started at the place where is bike is parked, I climbed into the concrete block and got into the bike first time I tried it didn't work, I am not able to balance, somehow I got down., with his help.
The second & last time I tried, it was very difficult, I am not able to drive at all, the bike was making me a round within a metre there is no control and I was about to fall down & fracture my ribs, hand & legs., he saved me like a god. It's amazing that he holded the weight of the bike & me.
I asked him how he balances, he said that he is an expert in UniBike as well as by experience.
On seeing my interest, he said he can design a similar bike like that for me at a cost.
I appreciated & congratulated him for his Engineering Brain & departed with finest reminiscences on the Sunny Saturday evening.
The first sunny day of this year 2008 started with good memories.
I hope you enjoyed the pictures & the story.,
Please leave me a feedback on my page or send me a message., it's appreciated.
Thanks for your time.

gBlogs.com and all of the other development we have going on here. Maren started helping many many months ago and it has rapidly scaled to the point where she was at a full time level. We had a number of conversations about it and we both thought it made sense to make it a real full time position and I'm really happy about it.
I was blown away initially by the logos and pictures she created for RecruitingBlogs.com Then I was blown away at the conversations around marketing and ideas to help with RecruitingBlogs.com. Then people started commenting a lot on the daily emails we send out every day. Then it seemed she was involved in all of the projects going on and it got to a point where Miles and I really seemed to depend on Maren for almost everything we do here.
I consider myself lucky to know her and to work with her and RecruitingBlogs.com is definitely a stronger company because of Maren's involvement. I hope if you see her around today, you stop and say hello and wish her congratulations.
Thanks and Congrats Maren.
ps to let loose her Eagle to hunt. She redefines the term COOL in hunting.
The pictures are awesome...
By William Kremer BBC World Service
Most children, Asher Svidensky says, are a little intimidated by golden eagles. Kazakh boys in western Mongolia start learning how to use the huge birds to hunt for foxes and hares at the age of 13, when the eagles sit heavily on their undeveloped arms. Svidensky, a photographer and travel writer, shot five boys learning the skill - and he also photographed Ashol-Pan.
"To see her with the eagle was amazing," he recalls. She was a lot more comfortable with it, a lot more powerful with it and a lot more at ease with it."
