Default Hola !!

Hi Guys,

An ardent follower of Team-BHP since a few years now (reading), but not very active or posts and threads (writing)....

I am Vishal from Mumbai, working in a Technology Company here. Have been head over heels on any pair or set of wheels like any other boy right since childhood. Not very well versed technically when it comes to components or CAR-language. I fall in the under amateur category when it comes to engine components or tech accessories !!

My self-owned set of wheels till date include:

Hero Honda CBZ (2003)
Hero Honda Karizma (2005)
Swift Lxi (2007)
Spark Music Edition LS (2009)
Ritz VDi (2010)

Family owned:
Exteem (1999)
Alto (2004)
Accent (2005)
Verna (2007)

I love "long drives" and can boast some really long (amateur category( non-stop drives like Chennai - Hyd (Karizma - 2007) and Blore - Mumbai (13hrs: Spark - 2009).....

Well that's all for now - over and out !!

Peace ...
Vishal aka Vizz

Yes it was extremely memorable, and frankly not very good. It was in the monsoon of 2007, Sept to be specific. I was alone, it was raining 80% of the way and it took me a back breaking 15 hrs to reach as visibility was bad (no vipers on helmet).... Was riding to sell it to a friend in Hyd...

Hi Vishal,

Welcome to BHP family, enjoy your stay onboard the forum. Your set of wheels are worth an envy.

Hown the hell did you drive in 13 hrs from B'lore to Mumbai, would like to hear more about the trip. Was it again to sell

Looking forward to some exciting posts from you.

Hey Bro,

The B'Lore to Mum drive was indeed memorable, 1st time that i touched my Sparky at 160kmph mark. Was at a constant 120 kmph, luckily got very less traffic and took minimum breaks.

Long drives are much faster to cover if you are alone with a good music system to give you company ...
