A petrohead eager to explore the world outside and the universe within. His love for engines started with his riding. His engines grew diverse so did his knowledge about them. Soon the passion for riding and understanding engines took over him and he started moving to places to learn more. Soon the love for two strokes was revived while restoring his fathers scooters and started long rides on his twenty five year old scooter. He went further and started add few of them to his collection. He writes travelogues and tries to find the utility of numbers to enrich the riding pattern and beautify the experience.
