Ha haha ha … nice thread, it really succeeded to raise my Goose Bumps once again:).

Scene1: (taken from last week only)

We headed to Agra from Delhi for my friend’s wedding in Scorpio. We took a U-turn towards Kalindi Kunj (now there is an over bridge, from there one has to take a U-turn for Kalindi Kunj), this turn then merged at main traffic line. We drove at 50-60 kph, when my friend had applied brakes to slow down the car as we going merged with the main traffic but to our bad luck breaks didn’t worked. Its truth that problem never comes alone, now the downward slope started and our car gaining speed. Our mind went blank but perhaps ‘na karte ya marte’ wali kahawat strikes in my friend’s mind and within a fraction of time he had lowered the gear from 4-3-2-1 and also drove down the car at Kacchi road (usually in India we have a mud road, along with every main road or highway) where sand made speed further lower. Finally, we were able to stop the car without any casualty.

Problem: The alternator (same part which told you by tsk1979) gone, its ball bearing cut off and it stopped rotating which in turn stopped supply to the electrical of the car.
Never Forgettable moment: The time we knew that the breaks didn’t works.
Silliest Mistake: We had sat dumb with empty minds (thanks to God, we didn’t make chaos).
Special thanks: To my friend and Govt. who put effort in spreading so much sand along with the road, which help us a lot:grin:.

Scene2: (taken from my college days)

We friends planned for a bike trip to Uttaranchal (Uttarakhand now). We were 4 people (me and Ashu on one bike & Neeraj and Sudip on other) on 2 bikes. We were close to Joshimath at 10AM around (this is the time when traffic only from one side allowed to ply but there is no restrictions on two wheelers). At that time traffic was allowed form Badrinath Ji to Joshimath but we were allowed to pass through Joshimath. Every thing went smooth and we were enjoying the ride.
Suddenly a Sumo passed my bike in a very erratic manner, it seems that driver didn’t recognize us on road, never mind I thought and moved ahead. As I took a u-bend, to my horror what I saw that the other bike which was just a turn ahead of me laid aside. I had found that my friend Sudip holds Neeraj’s leg which was hanged head down on the slope and however managed to stop himself skipping down by just holding a bush grown at slope.
We stooped our bike and ran franticly towards them. We had pulled him, but he was in trauma, his breathing was so fast that one can clearly heard the heart beat at a distant from him that time. We took a long rest before proceeding ahead.

Problem: At gate system, nobody care or think that it may possible that somebody coming on the way from opposite direction. I saw and what I believe that the jeep drivers in hills think that they are the masters of road and they never faced any miss happening. They never blow horn and always staring at you such as it’s always our fault only.
Never Forgettable moment: The situation in which I found my friends.
Silliest Mistake: Don’t know.
Special thanks: To almighty God which protects my friends and keep the bike in good condition.

PS: Sorry for my poor grammer.

If alternator bearing jams leading to belt breakage, all power to brakes goes, but brakes still work, all you need to do is stand on the brake pedal as hard as you can. In a car, you can still get some braking, in a heavy vehicle you need a lead foot. After you slow down to 20-30, pull the hand brake, as it will still work, pressure or no pressure.
