Default A pebble among boulders

What is team-bhp to me?

Well, it certainly did change the way I think(a lot).I can safely assume that the inquisitiveness in me knows no bounds. I do realize that there is another thread that discusses the "values" of team-bhp so let me refrain from sentimentalizing my thoughts.

Anyhoo,

Hello everybody

My name is Zohaib and just like everyone else, I'm a hardcore car and bike enthusiast(believe me, hardcore is just an understatement) but here's the catch, I'm not permitted by law to drive a car...Yet!

I'm 17 and it greatly enthralls me to be a part of this community. I've been a silent lurker since quite some time now, and when i finally did decide to become a member, it took me by storm that my membership got accepted at my first try. If there's an award for "Scrutinizing" this forum in the shortest possible time ever! then i believe that, that award goes to me.

I have, assiduously read and enjoyed threads ranging from Dkaile's Harley 883 initial ownership review to our moderator, mobike008's annihilating Cruze review. Oh, and how i enjoyed and still enjoy reading Mr Sam Kapasi's posts!, a thorough gentleman indeed.

The rides(since the time i was born):
  • Maruti 800
  • Maruti Esteem VX
  • Mahindra Scorpio
  • Hyundai Getz GLS

My interests:
  • Train/Locomotive spotting
  • Gaming
  • Reading
  • Talking about cars.. Duh!

My dream rides:
  • Yamaha FZ-1
  • Triumph Speed Triple
  • Mitsubishi EVO X
  • Range Rover Vogue
Yes, I have a thing for naked street bikes.


I'm probably the only one in my school who adores cars, all my friends are rather very humdrum when it comes to cars/bikes unless it's Lamborghini , Ferrari, Audi.. You get my drift


With my board exams right around the corner, my concentration must remain impeccable and my only means of entertainment/information, as of now, is Team-BHP!

Hope my journey here turns out to be eventful. Can't wait to get my licence next year!

Welcome!

In a way, I'm envious. You have a Team-BHP.com at the start of your motoring career, we didn't . Take your time going through threads on the best practices of driving, safety etc. You won't make the same mistakes we did. The Getz is a great car to start off on.

Good luck with the boards

These things are very similar b/w us bro. Sometimes people around get fed up of us being too much into cars right? :P Especially when you watch Top Gear/ Overdrive etc when others wan't to watch some serials on TV..?

Me too likey naked bikes a lot especially the Duke.

Same about friends too. They get bored when I talk about Marutis or Volkswagens than about Ferraris n Lambos.

I got my license few months back. The wait felt like forever. Finally I'm legally allowed to drive on roads.

Enjoy your stay here bro among the like minded freaks. and do well in your boards!
