Thanks a lot for a warm welcome ! (Old engines like me need some pre-warming to startup ;-)

Interesting nick - are you a Robin Sharma fan?

Thanks for your intro. You havent mentioned however whether you're still normally aspirated or whether you need forced induction (lets not talk about freeflow exhausts). How is your suspension holding up?

Thanks Steeroid ! I had an OEM fitted "super-charger" and a decent futuristic "emission-control" ;-)

"Suspension" has had a little trouble as one of the shock-absorber had a minor failure (slip-disc) so I have to be careful at the bends.

On the whole I'm reasonably well-maintained !!!

Welcome to team-bhp!
Enjoy your stay.

A scorpio with 1,00,000Km! I think this is the highest for any scorpio I have come acros in Team-bhp. Is it a 4x4??

Initially its ok if you dont know anyone.
Just have an eye on the meet section, you get to know when the meets will happen. And a newbee is always welcomed. And more so you with your wit will be quite poroular. BTW, your intro thread is enough, we already know you now. What you say sir?

I like your construction of Indian out of various religions. I wish the politicians & the religious heads could see this. Anyway, what have they got to do with religion or patriotism ...
