Default Just rode into Team-BHP

Hi folks.

This is Sumant from Mumbai. Born and brought up in Chandigarh but now living in Mumbai since the last 22 years.

Like most of the members here I'm an automotive geek, especially when it comes to bikes. I ride a 2013 Suzuki GSX1300R a.k.a. Hayabusa, and hence my handle "FalconRider". I had first seen the Hayabusa in 2000 and it stole my heart. From that moment on, I knew that this was it. Finally in 2013, after 13 gruelling years, I got one home.

In addition to biking, I'm also a passionate detailer, a chef by profession though. I'm a hardcore DIY guy when it comes to my bike and I love tinkering with her when I'm not riding her.

I also own a KTM Duke 390, a 2009 Honda City iVtec and a 2010 Mercedes Benz E350 cdi. Next on my wishlist are a C63 AMG and a Triumph Thruxton R.

TeamBHP has been my "go to" resource for most of my automotive related research since many years, and this is one place where I feel the advice and reviews are very genuine coming from real Automotive enthusiasts.

Being an automotive enthusiast myself and a harcore DIY guy, I feel that in addition to gaining from TeamBHP, I can substantially contribute by lending my own knowledge to the forum.
Since no post is complete without pictures, I'm attaching some, of the wheels I own.

Welcome to Team BHP Sumant!
Great to see a chef coming on board (an accomplished one at that!) who also has a passion for automobiles

Loved your lineup of vehicles, impressive set of 2 and 4 wheeled beauties.

Hope to see you share your experiences with the vehicles, drives on the roads and some tidbits from your culinary experiences straight from the Kitchen.

Hi Sumanth, Envy your garrage mate. Looks like you got a vehicle for each day of the week with Satuday and Sunday spend on cleaning and detailing the steeds. Would be looking forward to go through your experiences with all of your steeds. Keep reeving.
