Default Hello!

Hi all,

After having lurked a bit, found a lot of useful information & some helpful folks, I thought itís time I introduced myself.

Have been an auto enthusiast for longer than I can remember. Possibly since the time I started & drove my fatherís Mark 2 Ambassador into a providentially placed tree at the ripe old age of four. Emerged unscathed & since upgraded my driving skills.

I work in the FMCG space for one of the larger Indian conglomerates. Free time and holidays usually see me reading, playing squash, scuba diving(PADI - AOW), microlight flying(when I can splurge) and touring/tinkering (usually tinkering) with my bike.

My current drives are:
Ford Fusion 1.6 Duratec (White, with uprated rubber, Momo alloys & some nice ICE)
1984 Yamaha RD350 (Blue, complete top & bottom end rebuilt by RDD)

2 Wheel Wish list: Honda CBR 600 (Slush fund established. Nurturing the hope that it will pleasantly surprise the wife (unlikely) when it finally happens)

Pic posted of my bike, need to locate a nice one of the car.
Looking forward to interacting with the folks here!

Meanwhile, Iíve got acquainted with the board rules section.

Cheers!
