@ Desmosedici:

I saw your gypsy in classifieds today. You bought this last feb and selling it in 15 months after doing so much work on it. And you just did 2 OTR`s.

Remember what i told you about the purchase when you first bought it last year. (See my post on page 1)

Regards,

Abbas.

I have no regrets. I got it, had fun with it, totally enjoyed owning it and still do. At times there are changes and you live with it

Cheers

Today - The day came and went where i parted with the best vehicle i ever owned, the Gypsy. The dream did come true for me, i got to own this basic but awesome beast. Had to part with it after having repeated back issues. Happy that the Gypsy has gone into the hands of another TBHPian, Abbas. It came as a surprise that Abbas, who had initially posted that i shouldnt have purchased this vehicle is now the owner of the Gypsy . I wish him all the best in his ownership and have also requested him to keep the thread updated with whatever he does with the Gypsy.

I totally enjoyed its ruggedness, its go wherever attitude, the presence on the city streets, yes it does command a second look from everyone and finally, the complete open-top experience. The bone jarring ride is something that none of the owners like and its the same with me as well. Wanted to do a lot more however couldnt. But still i shall always cherish those moments.

Final Pic of me and my Gypsy (on the left is Abbas and me on the right)

Cheers
Raj

Oh too bad!! Your thread and post about the recent purchase of a Gypsy did matter in my decision making for a brand new Gypsy. (That I would not be a complete fool in taking this path ).

A man has a right to change his mind, no problem. So you found the CFLs also not good enough to ease the ride? I am putting mine tomorrow first thing.

What new car are you planning on?

Ragul, thanks if my thread made an impact. I still say its a great vehicle but i parted ways due to the increase in my backbone pains. Didnt want it to get worse. I dont drive on weekdays as well now and take a rick to work.
Live your dream with the Gypsy and enjoy it. I never had CFLs, but was contemplating over it for a long time. I got a 2001 OHC Vtec last november and thats my only car now.

Have fun and keep posting your updates.

Cheers,
Raj

Seriously? Rick ride is better than the gypsy and the OHC that you also have?

Desmo, take a bus instead of the Rick if you got a back problem. Or take a cab.

Thank you Raj !

Started from Mumbai to Jalgaon on Thusday morning. Had a heavy breakfast and started driving. All that bouncing around (because of that stiff suspension) resulted in me puking just when i touched nasik highway outside mumbai. All that heavy breakfast came out.

Anyway the rains came the ghats were awesome. Slowly the car started growing on me and i was enjoying the ride. I reached Jalgaon in the evening where i stayed with my would - be in -laws . The next day i started and did a non stop to vizag in about 22 hrs to vizag.

I bought this car for an application. Everybody does for that matter. I want to participate in RDH & DS and that is the application. The reason why i posted that raj should`nt have bought this is because he didn`t have a stand by car for his family. If you want to have a car like this you should first have a car which is your daily drive. Gypsies cannot be a daily drive. Its difficult for parents to get into the back and not to forget the horribly hard suspension

A special mention to Raj`s father Mr. Chandrasekharji. what a Gentle man, he kept all the papers ready and on the other hand my RTO agent did the rest of the stuff. I was ready to leave from mumbai the next day.

For me, the car is a pure hobby vehicle which will be used for RDH & Raid inshaallah. For Daily commuting, i have other rides.

The car is in vizag and now will be prepared for RDH.

Abbas.
