Errm..Is holding steering with both hands, a wrong way of driving? I didn't know. Anyway, most of the times in city, my one hand is on the steering and other on the gear knob. Funny thing here is that, I am consciously trying to use both hands for steering.

hello Mr Veryon2, it is really nice to see you here on this forum, i think this is the best a dad can do for his child, i mean joining his son's footsteps into this grt world of automobiles.

i also make it a point to discuss with my dad abt all the things happening at t bhp and even he keeps spreading the word abt tbhp all around his circle of friends and business acquaintances.

the only thing i regret is that he cant become a member as he is not too internet savvy and if he becomes a member then the only one computer in our office ( i work for my dad in our family business )will be occupied by him leaving none fro me to browse tbhp. i cant afford to leaqve tbhp even for a minute. so it is better for him to know tbhp thru our discussion.

hats off to you and a warm welcome to this wonderful forum. hope you enjoy your time here.

regards

Shubbhi

Unfortunately there arent many to listen....the only ones I can think of are Navin, Gurkha and Rudra but none of them are old enough to have a 20-year-old son. Its a start, though and maybe a lot of the younger lot should talk their dads into the forum too. Manaa you really should get another PC.

Hi Uncle
welcome to the forum. Tell us about your current and your ex rides.

You can go through the forum and see what little Veyron has been doing instead of studying for exams.

I was born in '63. I could have had a 20 yr old son. A close friend of mine was born in '60 and his son is 19.

Only I was living on 3 continents from 1989 till 1995 so could not settle down.

Anyway Rudra will be here as soon as he is finished playing with this new Camera. He knows more about Ambys than anyone here. In fact he has probably forgotten more than I can ever learn.

I am the GOM (Grand Old Man) of the ICE forum. Built my 1st speaker in 1976 or so. My 1st amp as well. The rest as they say is history.

Gwaan - maska maaro now that your deeds are about to be exposed!

Rudraji probably busy with EOSji, but has been on the forum nevertheless...maybe he doesnt like to discuss his age.

Welcome onboard Veyron2 Sir!!

I have been off for a couple of days and ready this thread when it was 3 pages long already. Reading through the messages one after the other evoked a feeling like no other. This is one thread that made me remember my childhood when the same used to happen with me on a Lamby. Its just amazing how quickly time goes by....

Veyron1 you created history here man a thought that probably never struck the rest of us.

Applause for the first Father and Son combo!!
