Default Tiny OTR with Family @ Bedara Swamy Betta between KGF & Kuppam

Hi Guys,

Had been to K G F Kolar Gold Fields this Saturday,
It was a long pending visit to my Grandma's house, she had recently fallen Ill.

Didn't know about the Band!!, and some Patry workers tried to stop me by putting a bike in front of Gurkha & had kept tyres on road & were trying to burn them early in the morning 6:30 AM near hoskete outskirts of Bangalore!! any way frighted them, My brother even yelled back & we eventually reached KGF 100 kms away & saw "Party Workers" working hard & loud at every town !!


Any ways back to the point. on Sunday All my cousins wanted to do a small OTR, First time for most of them so Off we go 10 of us in one Gurkha

We just choose some direction & drove out to find a spot, found one & had lot of fun, the coopers did an excellent Job on thorns !! I forgot to take my Spare wheel too

Let the pics & video do the rest.

Hi Sunil,
Nice to here that you had been to KGF,. my home town.
Yes, there are lot of such places around for short OTR. Usually the surface is dry and soft.
Great to know that you had a nice time.

Wow.. if i remember correctly, this place is called as LaxmiSagar cross, near maarikuppam. adjacent to this place was Akka thangachi kalre(cemetery) which was the scariest place for me in my school days i used to travel daily on this road for my schooling

@ GrayBerry Intersting, I studied in KGF fom 3rd to 7th Std (St Tressa) If KGF is your home town, in all possibility you would know my Grand pa Hari Rao

star_aqua yes its post Marikuppam enroute to Kuppam.

We did see many other places, but the light was dieing out & so decided to refrain from anymore obstacles.

My rear bumper is again mangled, need to Fab a new & Stronger one that can take the beatings

Cheers
Sunil
