Smile Hello Team-BHP!

Hello BHPians!

I'm Kamlesh from New Delhi, I'm also known as Kam in my friend circles. Born and brought up in Uttarakhand (Kumaon hills) and wandering across India / Some other countries since 1998. I have been in a 'read-only' mode on team-bhp since 2007 and have read many discussions happening here intermittently.

I have been so used to coming on team-bhp that I almost thought that I was a member already and even looked up my mailbox to search for my user ID / password before applying for membership. Almost got rejected in my maiden attempt, thanks to @GTO for evaluating my subsequent membership request.

About myself - I learnt driving in 1996 using my dad's Mahindra MM540 jeep in Uttarakhand. Subsequently I learnt riding two wheelers starting with a Bajaj Chetak in 1998.

I own a Skoda Fabia (Petrol 1.2) & 2 Royal Enfields (One Machismo LB500 and another TBird 350), all of these vehicles have been used to long distance riding/driving as well as daily commuting. I also happen to be a member of Royal Beasts (Bullet Club from Delhi) & BikeNomads motorcycle clubs. I have traveled from Ladakh to KanyaKumari using my enfields and have many great memories from my travel. My Fabia has been a constant companion since 2011 and other than the daily office commute from Dwarka to Gurgaon it has also done multiple journeys across Uttarakhand and Himachal Pradesh.

Though I have traveled to many places, the list of places where I'd like to go and the journeys I'd like to undertake is still so very long. Hoping that I'd run into some of you folks during one of the forthcoming drives / rides.

It's a pleasure to be here on Team-BHP with like minded folks and auto lovers, hoping that I'd be able to participate and contribute here.

Cheers!
Kam

Welcome to the forum, kamdrider!

A very crisp and comprehensive introduction, I must say. It would be nice to hear about your travel stories to Kanyakumari, and other travelogues for sure. I have also done several trips to Dehradun, Nainital and Haldwani area in my Etios Liva.

Get familiar with the forum rules for a smoother experience, if you aren't yet!

Regards,
Niku

Good to know that. I have my family base in Haldwani so I also keep on frequenting the place from time to time on my Fabia. Also, I have my engineering college connection with Dehradun so have driven to Dun also a couple of times.

Dear Kamlesh

Welcome to the Forum.
Have been a member of the Nomads since a long time and have faithful steeds in my Fiero F2 and the evergreen "Java Roadking 250".

Have done numerous road trips including Goa and other locations on shoe string budgets with the Nomads.

However, the biking bug is rested and rusted post marriage now .
Enjoy your stay and happy driving and revving!!

Lol, I also haven't been riding much off late but still manage to do 5K-10K every year. I guess some of my rides have got converted to drives, so still okay.

Dont know if we met.
i can tell you that the group was on a shoe string budget.
We started from Mumbai in a group of 5. Another Biker joined us from Pune and we were 6 from Mahad.

Night halt was at a modest Dattatray Lodge in Ratnagiri and a night sleep on the Anjuna beach in Goa!!

What fun remembering those days now.

I think we had stopped near Baga beach in the 2006 BN ride and don't remember sleeping on the Anjuna beach part so it seems we may have been on separate trips. Those were really good days!
