New Delhi: Sep 12, 2013

Free from his dismantling duties on the cricket field right now, Indian skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni turned his energies towards disassembling the first bike that he acquired as he enjoyed a rare break from the hectic international schedule.

In a series of tweets, Dhoni shared with his over two lakh followers, photographs of the first bike that he bought — a Yamaha Rajdoot and the how he dismantled the two-wheeler.

“…I don’t know who will assemble it but it was fun taking it apart,” Dhoni tweeted accompanied by pictures of the bike and then its dismantled parts.

Dhoni has a fetish for bikes and has over a dozen of them besides 10 high-end cars. He bought his first bike for Rs 4,500 and plans to restore it.

“I think my plan of action is to restore the 1st bike tht I bought for Rs 4500, …its in a very bad shape, (sic)” he had tweeted last month.

He also owns a two-wheeler racing team — Mahi Racing Team which competes in the World Superbike Championship.

Dhoni will next be seen in action in the Champions League Twenty20 (CLT20) next month, playing for Chennai Super Kings.

CLT20 starts on September 17 in India and CSK’s first match is against the Titans on September 22 in Ranchi.
