This is Gokul from Pondicherry. I m staying and working in Chennai at present and I've been here since 2 yrs.

To tell more abt me, I've been a crazy fan of automobiles since school days...I ve been having the misconception tat it's only bikes where I was interested in..well I was wrong.

As a few years flew by, I was growing more interested in anything that had wheels...More interested towards biking though...

Coming to my garage. I own a 2005 Bajaj Pulsar 150 cc [my first luv] and only 2 months back I gifted myself a 2004 Suzuki Baleno. am starting to like it already... very little time before I go crazy abt that too...

I like traveling, going for long rides in ma bike, music n hanging out wit frenz.

wish to have a nice time here @ TAI.

A very warm welcome to The Automotive India, Holy Satan! Hope you’re enjoying the stay and have already gone through general guidelines of community. Ilango, if I’m not mistaken, is he the same person who’s Baleno wears TAI Sticker? :smile: If so, he’s in the right place and expecting a substantial contribution from his end too!

Drive Safe,

yeah Dhaya. looking forward to the Chennai Meet.

I am staying at thoraipakkam in OMR...got my car here yesterday from pondy after a month and getting irritated now.

took bike to work and when I came back from work an hour back... my poor baleno was under a complete dust/mud covering thanks to the horrible road near my parking.

spent half an hour dusting it while talking to my onsite counterpart.shud get a car cover asap.

Oh yeah its difficult to maintain a car clean in the dusty Chennai city! Get a car cover soon if you don use your car for daily commuting. And BTW i live in Anna nagar , a little far away from your place.

How about creating a new ownership thread of your Baleno, so that we all can discuss in detail about it? :smile: And I’ve moved the second half of your post Here.
