You guys were really really lucky to escape without major injury. Offroading on unfamiliar terrain after sunset and without the headlights What's done is done. But please take care in the future. I see a great offroading gang being built from Mumbai / Pune and would hate to see anyone suffer a substantial loss.

On a positive note, great pictures. Evidently you guys have been having a blast. Can't wait to join in with a couple of other 4x4's. I see a lot of muck & slush offroading. Any spots with some uphill / downhill sections or those mega-spots that are far away from rural human habitats?

Yess it was our group at PRG doing show-off's and stunt off-roading,you might have realised,suddenly most of the gypsy's just vanished off from the event,this was where we headed.

Cyrus,wish you had come with us,nice meeting you there..The crowd was awesome. .cheers

yess thats a gurkha 4x4,it performed quite well,the only drawback was the mag wheels which unfortunately got stuck at one point so we had to leave it there for a moment and move ahead,later on the guys came back and removed it,it suerly towed the MM64 mahindra like butter smooth entire terrain,who's gearbox transmission broke and gave up.

Guys the night off road experience is mind blowing, do off roading in night not a problem but put on the light and do it.

The tyres are really toooo cool, let us know the make and size

Great tyre for off-roading, but would have terrible grip on paved roads. How does it perform on highways?

Hey nice pictures there Ramie.


@ All Bhpians.

We do understand how dangerous it is out there. We do take all precautions and try our level best not to PUSH it into the NIGHT.
But this Night drive was unavoidable. Due to the simple reason that our GREAT MAN pdev carved his way into PLANET EARTH for a reason known only to him and let his STAR lay there on its belly with wheels racing away to nowhere.
This took us Nearly 2 hours to get out off. By the time we did get out it, it was really dark and hence the unavoidable circumstances.



A big Thank you to :

GAME OVER - FAAD for his mechs who worked on a few gypsy's with ninggling problems.

ASIF BHAI the brain behind all these trips.

ALTAF BHAI for letting us use his winch to pull out Pdevs gypsy. Sorry we snapped it. Devang will pay you back for it. A lakh was it..??

Sajid of Moto World

And all the others.
