Vital statistics today - Scorpio has completed 217,000 kms, no trips planned today!
Belated happy returns of the day , had discussed about you with a non BHPian but a car enthusiast the other day and he did not believe that a person like you existed on this planet ( read that you are a roadie and virtually a living GPS ).

Hoping to see you crunching those miles on your scorp. LTD is the right statement for you. BTW how YOUNG are you now ??

My age - a few clues that roadies can crack easily:

- Highway with consecutive even numbers
- 18 + Distance between Bangalore & Coimbatore - 18
- I run like a Hare/Rabbit - Which Chinese Year?

Belated best wishes HV.
My paraphrase - It is always better to journey than to arrive

Bearing (direction) the steering
Engaging the gear
Miles of smiles
Year after year

Further riddle,
Find the result of:

Mangalore/Solapur - Madras/Bombay = Mangalore/Bombay - NH13 + Madras/Jharpokaria

And then + the result to the Number you have guessed.

If you still find that one tough, I will disclose my age!

None of the guesses are based on rational calculation using the clues

One more last clue for roadies:

This one connects 2 of the most important highways in South India.

But your linkedin profile (school years ) calculates to a few years off...

One more guess:
I think your age is 46. As per the clue
Quote:

The 2 highways should be NH7 & NH5, and the connecting would be NH46.

If i would be wrong then

Clue 1: Highway with consecutive even numbers - Answer: 46 connects Krishnagiri with Wallajahpet
Clue 2: 18 + Distance between Bangalore & Coimbatore - 18, Answer: 18 years + 360 months - 18 months = 46
Clue 3: I run like a Hare/Rabbit - Which Chinese Year? Answer: 1963
Clue 4: Find the result of:Mangalore/Solapur - Madras/Bombay = Mangalore/Bombay - NH13 + Madras/Jharpokaria, And then + the result to the Number you have guessed. Answer: NH13-NH4 = NH17 - NH13 + NH5, which is 9, add to 37 (your guess) = 46
Clue 5: This one connects 2 of the most important highways in South India, Answer: NH46 connects NH4 (at Wallajahpet) and NH7 (at Krishnagiri)

Thanks for your patience at these mind-teasers!
