If I drive in one lane I can imagine the umpteen times I would be cursed at , given looks and have to listen to the wonderful language of passing bikers and perhaps auto drivers.
No worries dude, I cannot be scared on Pune roads; at least not any more than I already am!

I do the same, but I use my indicators a lot when changing lanes. Not that anybody notices them; but at least I have the satisfaction that the habit may help me when I drive elsewhere.

This is the second time I am spotting this car. Hope to get a response at least this time, especially since the post is accompanied with a pic.

Spotted this in my office parking just now.
Who are you mate? If not a BHPian, at least send me an email on the office id! We work for the same company. My name is the same as the BHP id. Would be good to catch up with you.

Oh BTW, nice car!

We met again at the next signal & again exchanged smiles when, to my left, a blue civic honked & indicated my LTD sticker. Again we exchanged smiles... the signal turned green & I moved on. Dint spot the Civic after that... Who was it?

Sorry guys, I was in a rush... Had some work at my place. It was good to see you'll.

raj_5004,

That was me in the Red Baron.
Had returned the night before and had taken the car for a much needed spin after a fortnight's enforced rest.

By the way I saw, overtook and exchanged (non-verbal) greetings in Hiranandani yesterday 7th with a black Palio with an MH14 plate. The gentleman raised his arm in greeting as I turned left toward the hill. Do not recall the stickers but it had two of them at the rear.

ragingbull is not wrong in his assessment of my intended travel - however thanks to the consular powers that be, I travel to SA by the end of next week.

Two must do items on the agenda - a Johannesburg to Capetown to George drive and a meeting (hopefully) with Graeme Pollock!

Regards, drive safe

It absolutely hurts and saddens by the way people sporting these stickers drive so irresponsibly. MODS can there be some mechanism where in issuance of stickers can be regulated?

I have a couple of friends who make such loose statements that "oh your forum folks ride rashly on the road with out any respect to the law"
Well said Sumathindra. I too saw couple of cars - Swifts - with BHP stickers moving recklessly last week. I suspect whether these guys are members or would have got extra stickers from their friends?

At last, some one has spotted me. Actually, i didn't notice you because i was in the front passenger seat. If you have waved in front of me, then maybe i might have noticed. I will save this picture

Oh man. I think now its time for T-BHP T-Shirts with very bold lettering so that i can spot you as well on the road.

Thanks for spotting me multiple times. I think we should exchange our numbers, so next time you spot you can buzz me and we can have a quick chai at the Tapri

Spotting no.1

Vehicle - Black Scorpio
Stickers - "Love cars, live cars" (red and black combo) on rear boot door, URL on number plate
Place - From Bellandur to Ecospace tech park
Time - today, around 5.15pm

Windows were fully up. You were humming some music and nodding your head completely immersed in it. I came beside you and waved but no response. Probably a Pseudo?


Spotting no.2

Car - Black Palio Stile multijet
Stickers - "got BHP?" sticker on the rear windshield and URL stickers on the mirror.
Time - around 5.45pm
Place - ORR, BTM layout - citibank to Udupi Garden signal stretch

I was on my black pulsar 220. Managed to catch up with you and shouted "Team-BHP". You smiled and replied something which I couldn't hear Wish I could stop for a quick Hi but the traffic was too heavy there. Who are you BHPian?

Spotted the same one at Auroville parking(Pondy) on the 28th May. Nasty damage on the side as well.
