Default Third time lucky: A Rajasthani TBHPian in Ahmedabad

Hey guys, Happy New Year.

Team-BHP introduction on the 1st day of 2013. Well, that's a nice start, isn't it.

I am an electrical engineer from Jaipur, working in Ahmedabad. i have been a guest member for years and after two failed attempts, i got my membership approved. My first motorbike was IND SUZUKI and first car was Maruti 800. I currently own a 2006 Ford Ikon 1.3 Flair, clocked 63k on the odo, and still doing great. I am now looking to upgrade and have been following the Duster and Ecosport since i saw them in Jan 2012 Auto Expo.

My other ineterests are football, music and travel.

The longest trip i have done is from Jaipur to Manali in 2008. I drive sedately (with wife and kid at the back), give way to pedestrians, always wear seat belt, and try to keep headlights at low beam as much as possible. Although on highways i touch 110-120 kmph (the highways in Rajasthan & Gujarat are awesome), i believe we can still drive safely at these speeds.

I look forward to hear from all of you. You guys are great.

Cheers,

-Abhay

Hi Abhay,

Welcome to TBHP. Good to see someone from Ahmedabad. We have a fairly decent sized crowd here. What part of the city do you stay?

Cheers,
Adi

Thanks Abhay,
Let's catch up sometime. I stay near the Gurudwara and Ramky stays midway between us in hebatpur!
Search for Aditya Rathore on fb and we can connect.
Cheers!
