India captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni is making most of his current break from cricket.

Back home in Ranchi, he has embarked on a new mission: to get his first bike in working condition.

He posted a picture of his 'Rajdoot' on Twitter, which was lying idle for quite a few years.

Dhoni has a passion for motorcycles, and owns 16 at the moment.

Last year he had bought the 'Confederate X132 Hellcat', which cost around Rs 60 lakh.

He also owns the Mahi Racing team, which is competing in the FIM World Supersport Championship.

In fact, India's all-conquering cricket captain had, last month, expressed his desire to get his first bike in working condition.

'I think my plan of action is to restore the 1st bike tht I bought for rs4500, will upload its pic maybe tomorrow.its in a very bad shape,' he had posted on Twitter.

Dhoni, it appears, enjoyed taking the bike apart, but is unable to reassemble it now.

"This is how it is as of now,I don't know who will assemble it but it was fun taking it apart,' he wrote on the social networking portal.

Looking at the pictures posted, Dhoni seems to have done a good overhauling job.

"Finally it's clean,no more work for today," he signed off.

The dashing wicketkeeper-batsman returns to action later this month when he captains Chennai Super Kings in the Champions League Twenty20, starting in Jaipur on September 21.
