Nice pictures. Must have been real fun.

Noticed a TATA sticker behind a Defender. Wonder why?

Do you have a Fortuner?

Make sense since Steer is a Tata and LR fan.

Can you give us your feedback in the testdrive/ownership reports thread? I used a Fortuner for a couple of days when I was in dubai and loved it. Many of us in India have been eagerly waiting for the launch here. Would love to hear your views since you have used it both on and off-road.

That certain gentleman also happens to have a Land Rover sticker on the rear of his safari! And a Jag too! Brand loyalty to the max!

yes, we had good fun, also few mishaps which is a part and parcel of every trip, nothing major.

Yes. it's so much of fun, steer might be posting about the number of vehicles he rescued and also his defender's coolant problem.

Nice pictures Vikram. Thats a great turnout. There seem to be more Toyotas in that bunch more than any other. Landcruisers still rule the roost I guess.
