Talking Hi all

Hello everyone!

Its great to be part of this vibrant community - have benefited greatly from the user reviews and views on cars. Finalised my choice of new car based on this. More of that later.

More about myself:
Two wheelers are a passion: have ridden everything from the Bajaj Sunny (remember that cute 50 cc) right on to REM Bullet, clocking over 75,000 kms. Though sort of a late bloomer: rode my first bicycle at 16, first two wheeler at 20 and am just learning to drive a car, there has been no looking back. Some experiences:
Bicycle - Atlas Rebel ATB: overtook a speeding matador, hands off the handlebar
Scooter - LML Vespa 150 NV: regular nightmare to cars and cops: once overtook a speeding yellow zen in a tight spot and ended denting the side of the zen, leaving a bright yellow streak on my blue scooter that refused to go away after substantial scrubbing. Major lesson learnt: never scrape a bright coloured car with a dark coloured bike!
Motorcycle - Enfield Electra 5S: sobered down (Bullet has that effect), rode 250 kms from Chiplun to Mumbai in driving rain, with wifey on pillion. Some people never change!

Live and work in Mumbai; am a consultant in the financial services space; interests are photography, reading and writing; like to take out my Bullet on long rides, did a recent one to Harihareshwar and Chiplun - will post pics as soon as I cross the newbie status!

More soon, watch this space!

R

Live and let live: ride safely!
