Default Oh yeah! Finally I'm on Team-BHP

First of all, please Moderators no offense meant by the title.

Actually, have been trying since a long time to be a part of the Team-BHP family and always felt dejected when i use to get another email from Team-BHP of "Sorry, but please try again".

It was altogether a joyous moment this time around when i saw something different in the email subject, and oh boy i was jumping when i saw the term Approved. Thank You so much to the moderators for approving my request.

Well, now for the intro. i am a 27 year old machine buff from Cochin, Kerala. By profession i have a small business onto branding and advertising. Since childhood cars and bikes or rather every machines have always fascinated me, the passion grew well along with me which even made me run a business of selling pre-owned luxury cars for some time.

As for the machines i own, an 84 model Royal Enfield and 2007 Hyundai Verna adorns my garage. If all goes well, would be adding in a W124 Mercedes in near future. (fingers crossed)

Reason for the W124 simply because, firstly the Mercedes is a dream badge to own for me since childhood and the W124 is one of the most solid and reliable car i have seen and driven out so far. The cornering stability of this car has always given me the confidence to push the pedal further en-route my hill station expeditions.

Once again Thanks to all the moderators, glad to be a part of this community hope to continue my journey through the motoring world along with all the petrol heads here.

Hello MercLover

Thank you so much Suhaas and Vish my dear friend for the warm welcome. I would definitely post a very detailed post of my affair with my twin bro (my '84 RE). He was known as KRP (for the plates KRP xxxx) among my friends.

So sad is the fact that, i sold my trusted companion just couple of weeks before out of a sudden thought. I was rarely using him since my marriage, twice i had to take him for a complete plating job because he was gathering rust. That is when i started searching for if any true Bullet lover would be interested in picking him up for regular use, and thus was sold to a young admirer.

But to be honest, i regret for what I've done now when i see the vacant space in my garage everyday. I may pickup another bullet in future, but never ever i think can anyone replace KRP in my life.

Just posting a couple of pictures of KRP here, Pic 1: when he came to me and Pic 2: After i did a few cosmetic jobs on him.
