Welcome home baby! Was my Facebook update.
Congrats.
Bangalore TBhp Jeepers are an incestuous lot.

Congrats Jaggu on getting the Spidey!

I did see Khan Saab's post on FB few days and was wondering why he was letting it go. Seeing the Spidey picture on your FB profile understood the deal!

So the dilemma of your last THAR vs Gypsy thread is also solved.

Cheers

P.S: I agree with Sutripta about the incestuous relations prevalent in BODA :P

jaggu congrats on the purchase man. The saving grace is that you know Dwarf is in your friends circle, which means you can get to see it and drive it when you want to.Being on cloud number 9 is picking up a very capable offroader from an avid offroader and a good friend.
Both vehicles stay within the friends circle and heck yeah who cares about the price paid.

You couldn't have made a better choice than this gentleman for the grooving job . What's the next upgrade ?

Congrats Jaggu.

Never thought Shanawaz was serious about parting with Spidey. I am glad You inherited the Spidey, especially with Dwarf' parting.

I echo Riju's thoughts - What next Sultan!?

Hey, I didn't realize that YOU were picking up Spidey when I read Khan's post on FB! Heartiest Congratulations Jaggu

Khan, pleasant memories will always remain, right ?

I predicted it correct when i knew you were parting with DWarF.
Anyway, i can still catch up with Spidey anytime - be it with you or Khan.

WOW.
Last monday evening i saw the gypsy parked in the same place where you keep your swift near NOUS's koramangala office and i showed my wife the gypsy and told her that its Khan_sultan ride ( had showen her pictures of Khan sahaab from a TBHP meet ).
But know i guess will have to let her know that the iconic gypsy got a new owner and that too a BHPIAN.


Cheers

Met a super hero Today !!!!
Yesterday 12-02-2012 was another lucky day of mine. I was on my way with my two brothers and eldest nephew for a birthday lunch at koramangala from electronics city. As soon as I hit the signal taking us towards the Sarjapur ring road at Silk Board, I see a white gypsy towards my left. I tolad my brother that I know this gypsy and was doubly sure when I looked up and saw the Zukiworld sticker on the windshield. I jumped out to catch the lucky new owner of SPIDEY but to my surprise I see the one and only Mr.Khan sir on-board. I guess, I did startle him by jumping out of my car at the busy junction, but, I guess he did recognize me from our last chat at the Bangalore annual offroading meet.

Shook hands with Khan sir and then went back to my car and then I remember that I do have a camera phone and got that out to catch some quick snaps/video of the gypsy I keep close to my heart and the man/heart behind this wonderful machine. Later on, my bro who was just down for a day in Bangalore to catch up for his son's birthday lunch, was asking me as to why I was having a 70mm smile even after a hour off this lucky meeting, and I told him that we just met the best of the first offroaders of India(gypsy class) - Both Man and the Machine.

Khan sir , hope I haven't invaded your privacy norms by posting this pic here. Had a beauty of a video of Spidey, but unable to upload the same due to my current status.
