nothing as interesting as others but ...

Goldie is my nick since my childhood - apparently my sister wanted me to have golden hair, and when it turned light-brown, she refused to believe it.
Later my college pals came to know about it, and it has stuck with me ever since.
Malhotra is my official last name.

Hey, Nice thread !!! 'Khaadu' is a nick given to people from Upper Himachal, though what it actually means is 'mountain guy' and 75 is the year that I became a Indian --- also when I registered on this site I didn't realise how addictive this forum wud become or else may have thought of a more appropriate nick ..... though if given a chance I wudn't change it !!!

My biking days came to a temporary halt when I had serious issues with my back. Had to take steroids as part of my rehab program and consequently put on tonnes of weight which I havent managed to lose over the last 8 years or so. M/s Kingfisher & Heineken havent helped the cause, either.

Once I lost contact with the handlebars, I got addicted to the steering wheel.

Still am, so here I am - Steeroid.

I wanted a username which would never become outdated. So i was thinking of a Veyron but didnot like it much. So then i decided to have one on a SBK which will always be remembered at that had to be the Hayabusa since its the first bike in the 300kmph club and always will be remembered. But then HayaBUSA would be a long name so settled for BUSA.

Well, ghostrider is the name of the F-14 Tomcat (now sadly decomissioned) that maverick (call sign of tom cruise) rode in the movie Topgun. It was a coupla close friends and my all time favourite movie. I was a military aircraft's buff back in school along with these other guys. So usually all our usernames and passwords are all associated with ghostrider, maverick, iceman, amongst other names from the movie, for all our mail id's and all.

4385= 4th, March, birthday!
