Post Introduction

Hello Team BHP,

I'm Ravi Abraham, 36 years old (wondering whether I should change my handle to veteran but am still very young at heart though). I am in the IAF working as a Pilot, presently based at Agra. I've been a roadie (not the M Tv variety) since over 2 decades. I've travelled extensively in our country, courtesy my adventurous rides and drives, besides my professional ventures. Biking from Pune to Goa (and back) as a 16 year old (don't ask me how) and from Goa to Kanyakumari and back are among my memorable trips almost 2 decades ago. Friends called me plain crazy. But then that was just me. I loved the feel of air on my ears.

I graduated onto 4 wheelers at age of 24 when I purchased a car with my own pay, a Maruti 800. She's done a 100,000 km single hand driven in the last 11 years now. I have just upgraded to a Tata Safari in Oct 09. Believe it or not I've clocked 9000+ km in just 2 months flat. I've been to Ahmedabad and back, and Pune and back to Agra within this time. Team BHP played a major role in me zeroing down on to this beauty which I possess today. Without doubt a big "Thank You" to all of you at Team BHP who are doing an incredible and fantastic job keeping up such a website. Kudos to you. I will come up with details of my roadtrip to Pune and back subsequently. If there's anything more you'd like to know about me - shoot!!

Wow that was quick moderation. Really JK I wish she had wings. She'd be flying then. She's an absolute beauty. I've had my eyes on her since I'd seen her at the Auto-Expo at N Dellhi way back in 1998. I had sworn to my self, someday she would be mine. I've realised that dream now.

I've noticed - the later you buy a Tata vehicle the better it gets.

Hardly . We have a good number of ol' men on the forum.

I have a feeling that you are going to love our travelogues forum section.

Nice, excellent highway comfort. 4,500 kms monthly running means you've been stretching her legs, haven't you?

Thanks for that, and for signing up. I do hope you contribute toward building our extensive knowledgebase too.

We'd appreciate your taking a quick pitstop by our board rules section just once, for familiarity. See you around!
