So after finalising everything, the reality dawned onto me. I was about to embark on the biggest road travel of my life and that too in an unknown vehicle and the cherry on the cake was I WAS ALONE.

Here’s a snapshot of the journey that I was about to embark upon.

      Thanks Ravindra. My advise or suggestion is to keep checking the classified section of different forums and you are surely bound to come across to something that you would like.
      You can seek my advise anytime (contact me through this blog), though I too am still learning, would surely try to share my experience in the best way I can.

    Is this a Japanese import?

    If yes, then it’ll be HDJ81.

    These are getting rarer. I’ve seen two HZJ80/81’s here in Chandigarh. Plus a guy in Mohali has an absolute mint HDJ81 M/T . It should be seen to be believed.

    Cheers on owning a legend!
