Thumbs up New Member From Pune!!!

Hello everyone!

Vivek Jayasheel from Pune here. M/33, documentation specialist with an American MNC, with a part-time job I hesitate to mention

Heard about this forum from ANOTHER great forum I love frequenting: rddreams.com.

The love of my life is a completely un-stock Yamaha RD-350 (the list of mods is exhaustive, will cover that in a separate post) engine done up by the great man himself, Ron Chinoy, God bless him.

Not much of a car person anymore, but have owned/driven:
Contessa Classic (dad's office car, learnt to DRIVE in this baby and my favorite Indian car to date)
M-800 - my college car.
Gypsy MG410 - second college car.
Esteem - First car I bought with my own money when I started working.
Zen - First first-hand car I bought with my own money. Chose a smaller car for congested Pune streets. Runs no mods except for a UNI sheet air-filter that seems to help overall performance and strangely, refinement.

Want to own a pristine black or white Premier Padmini someday.

My list of bikes is not very long unfortunately, started riding a RX-100 at age 13 which I soon got bored of, and bought a KB-100 RTZ in 1990. I consider this to be the definitive handler and haven't found anything that comes too close (maybe the old CBZ does). Also had a Genesis-600 (FZR Pure Sport) in my care for 3 years, but it never belonged to me. That was a hooligan. The RD is a recent acquisition (2005) bought from Nasik. All the performance mods on it were completed only by early 2008. Currently riding it in cafe-racer trim (low handlebars and seat, rearsets, weight-reduction). Will post pics soon.

Great to be here. Hope I didn't rant too much.

Hi Vivekjayasheel,

Welcome aboard.
I am quite interested to know what your part-time job is, dare i ask?

I'm sure you'll have a great time here with the other RD owners and not to mention the fiat-wallahs who will push you closer to your black or white padmini....

cya around,
