Hello from SE Calgary!
« on: February 11, 2017, 04:35:13 PM »
Hey everyone!

My name is Raj and I'm from SE Calgary. A little about me is that I currently bounce back and forth between Calgary and Cold Lake for work, and enjoy riding my bike (2013 ZX6R) for the warmer part of the year. Been riding for 5 years now, and have nothing but good things to say about the whole riding community. Now I'm fortunate enough to have the opportunity to be part of an awesome car community as well!

I finally picked up my dream car last year, a 2015 STI in Galaxy Blue Pearl. Quickly put on a cool ~20000 km in the first 6 months of owning it.
Heard about the forum through my buddy Kijho and I'm glad to be part of the community! Hope to meet more of you guys through the meets and all, thanks for having me!

My Instagram is the best place to peruse through some pics of my car/bike at your leisure.

Welcome! And glad to see another member from the south!

Checked out your IG, nice posts. Have to ask because of the ring - engineer?

Thanks everyone!
Yup - the dyno day was awesome, it's really cool to start some numbers being put to your toys. Perhaps this summer I'll go back and get a protune on the bike to unlock a bit more top-end.
And yup, engineer in training right now. My field stint involves a couple years up in Cold Lake going through various roles of operating and field engineering before I end up back in an office here in Calgary for the long run.

Any friend of kijho has got to be a good guy.... Or was it the other way around...

Have fun here. It's a good group.

IIRC you were in one of Kijho's videos when he rolled into the top gear parking lot and you were there, the video where he does the photo shoot with his girlfriend's car (I watch his videos religiously) ;D welcome!!

Out of curiosity, are you anywhere close to Cranston in the SE?

Haha yup - that was me! Always awesome to run into friends, and I'm looking forward to more of that happening after getting to know more of you!

Yup, I'm relatively close - right next door over in McKenzie lake. Often around 130th as well. I do a lot of driving around just for the fun of it too, so I'm always rolling around somewhere.  :D

Hi Raj! Good to see you on here  ;)
How far is your commute? 20k in 6 months is pretty hefty

Heyy!
The commute is about 600km one way. So I'm putting on over about 650-700km per week on average. It's going to be this way for another couple months or so, and then start winding down as I spend more of my time up in Cold Lake.
