Default Hello Team-BHP

Hello folks!

First off, a big thanks for letting me into the Team-BHP community - a community that has been, for the last 11 years, my sole guide for anything 'automobiles' and everything 'road-trips'. Looking forward to a super exciting journey from here on!

About me - I currently live in Bangalore, where I moved to after finishing my engineering 10 years ago. However, my love for automobiles had kindled long back. As a kid, I was fascinated by the tv series' 'Knight Rider' and 'Street Hawk'. I used to collect hot wheels and my favorite pastime was to tinker with my grandfather's discarded Suvega. Fast forward to college, I got a chance to build a vehicle that could be folded into a suitcase. Built from a 50cc engine scavenged from a TVS moped, the project gave me a just few seconds of airtime on national television, but a lifetime of automobile dreams in my heart. Recently, even more fun was building a full scale glider, to fly myself in, for redbull's Flugtag event. Well, that glider crashed in its first flight itself, but in the process, I did discover a new hobby in paragliding.

My love for automobiles and a passion for travel meant just one thing - road trips. I bought my first motorcycle 10 years back and my first car about a year ago. Both, my car and my motorcycle, share an equal part of my love. And in the last 10 years, I have driven or motorcycled through 'every' state in the country - always solo and always starting from Bangalore. I'm fond of unique cultures and like to explore off beat places. My recent month-long solo bike trip to the Northeast is something i'm looking forward to share here soon.

Currently, I own:
- VW Polo GT TSI
- Royal Enfield Thunderbird 500

Outside of automobiles, I work in the field of corporate strategy. Music is love - and i'm a fairly regular face at karaokes in Bangalore. I love poker and I also love to write code for fun. Trading options is another hobby that I actively pursue.

Eagerly looking forward to continuing learning, contributing to, and interacting with you all BHPians in this great forum.

That sounds fascinating! Was it in Austria? Would love to hear more about your experience with Flugtag event. A separate thread may be?

And how is that turning out so far? What do you trade - Nifty, Banknifty or USDINR?
