Heh.. I'm actually into jingles and production, just getting into film music here. My weapon of choice is the keyboard, but I'm a vocalist too. Genre-wise, I guess I tend to give everything equal love. Big radiohead fan, like me a bit of Euro hyphenated-genre electronica - Royksopp, Air, Bjork. From around these parts, AR Rahman, Rahat fateh ali..
About my bike, I primarily use it for commuting and getting around town. The main problem is parking when I get to where I want to go. Things are improving because we have a small but vocal group of bikers here, and the Bangalore Transport Commissioner is a biker too.
When I have the time, I just head out to see the countryside. It gives me a nice feeling to be doing that on my own power. Ride a few trails now and then, nothing hardcore. Had to stop for a while after fracturing my shoulder while downhilling; my arm still hasn't recovered.
