Hi JoshGuy

It feels @ home off road, (not that I have really gone to some places), the little pond crossing we did, it did it very comfortable, I got it for 4.5L

Who wants to go to Illugul Betta this Sat Day? http://picasaweb.google.com/cometSunil/IllugulXbhpNov7#

Cheers
Sunil

Steal man, absolute steal. Congratulations Sunil. You've bought yourself a very capable 4x4. Now,

1. Practice & learn. Go out off-roading on weekends, and spend some time reading through the many 4x4 techniques being discussed on Team-BHP.

2. For the time being, and if you want, get some great all terrain rubber. Leave other hardcore modifications for later. A good driver in a stock 4x4 can beat an ill-informed one in a souped up rig.

Great price. Much better than buying a rusty Mahindra from an army auction, and spending about the same money in getting her up to shape.

@hisunil\cometsunil:congratz on the purchase - that is indeed a sweet deal. The Gurkha looks like new, and 17K km is nothing but peanuts for such a machine.

All the best for your future OTR endeavors

One of the negatives in the hard-top gurkha is it's weight.

With a soft-top, I am sure performance (on-road and off-road) will be better

congrats! hisunil

You could Get your Scorpio till the base of betta or hop in to the Gurkha, My bro & My cousin will also be driving with me in it, not sure if I should take my Son & Wife along on the first Trip.

Cheers
Sunil

Thank you Sunil.
I'd say the more, the merrier.Bring em along as well. By the maroon Safari, do you mean HappyWheels aka Suresh, Red Gypsy aka Starter? If yes, then I could probably hop on with Suresh as we stay in the vicinity and then come over.

Well ... was it you Sharat? Also I am indebted to the guy from Banglore who was in Red Classic to pass on this information.

The one fact which delights me is that this meet and information passing hands benefited to all, person selling and person buying!!

Of course it was me. And I told you to check with Giri for contact details, and Giri is the Red Classic guy from Bangalore.

Hey Dev,
No, it ain't me. Must be Krishna. I do not know of any other red Gypsy in B'lore OTR Gang.
With a fresh bore, i doubt it if Krishna it is or some one else.
Anyway, have fun all of you!!
Cheers,
Deepak

Thanks Sharat!

I am so happy about it that the deal finalised within a week. I am also in awe of all the people around, got lot to learn from all - giri, Viji, Khan, Deepak and yourself.

God knows when I will get that much of knowledge you guys carry, and I am afraid if I would be able to retain that kind of knowledge. Am so glad I attended this OTR.
