Default All I can say is wow

First, I would like to thank to Team-BHP for this opportunity for which I was sincerely trying for last many years.

This was my 6th attempt of registering and every time when I used to receive “Please register again” I used to have what more is expected! but, finally I got the long awaiting email “Team-BHP Membership APPROVED!”

I am Aniket, from Pune. I am 32 years old Automotive Engineer. I am working in vehicle R&D as a proving ground test professional, in the domain of vehicle dynamics & durability.

I am following Team BHP from last more than 7 years, I have read almost all the forum discussions and my most favourite are “restoration threads” they are amazing & it's striking to see how scrap can turns into beauty.

Within the automotive I love vintages, antiquities. I love travelling, I am backpacker and love solo riding. I have done many solo rides within India and exploring more & more. Food is my next weakness, a true foodie and like to explore possible local cuisine wherever I travel.
I am passionate about cars and bikes from childhood itself as my father who is a Doctor by profession but engineer by heart and used to repair, dismantle assemble bikes at home & I was used to help him as a helper in his work!!
My first vehicle was, my dad’s “Bajaj Stride” during the college days & then continued with many more. After stride, I had LML sensation, Suzuki Samurai, HH splendor, Boxer CT. In cars, my dad had Premier Padmini as a first car on which I learnt driving, then two more Padmini’s, 118NE, M800 5speed, 3 more M800 and Alto LXI.

Currently I own, Wagon R VXI, Alto K10 VXI & TATA Nano Twist (this is 3rd Nano in my fleet). My fleet of two wheelers have, RE-TB350, Honda NAVI, Honda Activa, Bajaj Avenger 220, Suzuki Access, Hero Pleasure & recently acquired & restored “Suzuki Samurai 1999” (Will share a small restoration story shortly)
Still, I am again looking for Bajaj Stride to have in my fleet as really missing it a lot!

Thanks again to Team BHP!

Looking ahead for wonderful contribution from my side to the community!

Lucky you! Working where your dream is, eh? Would be great if you can share a detailed thread with us on the process (something like this). Of course, brand names can be kept confidential if required by your employer.
