Default Greetings From South Africa

Hi All

I just joined your forum. I`m from South Africa & work for Mahindra SA.

In total I have owned more than 30 vehicles, including a few racing vehicles. My current vehicle is a Mahindra Scorpio CRDe & a Honda 1100cc Blackbird Bike - weekend toy.

Hope to hear from you all.

Warm Regards

A Mahindra guy from South Africa. Your experiences with the Mahindras in SA would be interesting to read . Do tell us more about Mahindra's SA activties. What are the differences in the products sold there and those in India. Your weekend toy is a fabulous bike. My brother owned one for more than a year and just loved it.

Do take time to go through the Annoucements. They will help you in understanding the forum better.

Welcome to Team BHP.
