It's endemic to most of India sadly. Up North it might have been even worse if held at NCR etc. Nevertheless, someone needs to think out of the box for this issue. At least the stalls could deploy some industrial vacuum cleaners or something.

Great coverage of this event just like earlier, kudos Tushar. Just praying I'll get to visit this great festival some day!

Never knew there was a DN-01 here. Did Honda import it for the owner or was that a private import? Is there owner on this forum? Or does anyone know him?

The Honda DN-01 has been in India for more than 5 years is what i know. My friend here had it in Goa for a while until it was sold to someone in Bangalore. I don't know the exact details of how the bike was brought here to India but as far as I know its had almost 3-4 owners since its come here.

The dust issue has been addressed this year. They watered down the ground as much as they could, but considering the hot sun, it's just wasteful after a point. There is a fair amount of dust, but honestly as long as you steer clear of the "needless burnout associates" , it's not much of a problem.

Nothing out of the ordinary in terms of scooters (at least none that I saw). Last year Vespa had a big stall, and I thought Piaggio would use the opportunity to showcase the Aprilia SR 150, but I think the Auto Expo used up a big chunk of the marketing budget by itself.

The water will probably disappear in to the soil or get evaporated in less than half an hour.

I assume that all the stalls were far away from any of the burn out zones. This problem can't be avoided unless they choose a different venue or site. A short walk is enough to make your shoes look like you came out of a mine.

I attended the Rider Mania event back in 2009 (or 2010). It was held at one of the Sterling Resorts property in Ooty. They had a huge parking area which was tarmac and the other was a lawn, used mostly for the competition motorcycles. Everything was neat and tidy.

Great Job Tushar!! loved the pictures. Pretty much covered every aspect of the show!!

great eye for details. Sadly for me IBW 2016 turned out to be a mixed bag. i had two bikes for mod bike competition and both got displayed on the stage. you can partially see one of my bike in your last picture but unfortunately nobody could get on the stage to take beautiful pictures like you did!!. most people missed it. oh well lesson learned!!

thanks again for great pics!!


cheers

Tushar,

Great coverage. You did not include any photos of you or your own ride? You sound too passionate to have driven down to the venue

PS: no team-bhpians met up there? Surely many of us would've been there!

Unfortunately I wasn't able to ride down, would've been at the Dirty 20 track in a heartbeat if I did! I'm sure I must have crossed paths with a few BHPians. Hoping to see some of their pictures on this thread.

My team Wanderers On Wheels and I rode down to IBW16, Goa from Mangalore. It was an amazing ride! We stuck together cruising at 80s to 100s till we reached Goa.
The event was alright. It was an ocean of SuperBikes revving mad!
I was very glad for getting the chance to meet and have a conversation with many inspiring people like CS Santosh, Sagar Sheldekar and his Team Powerdrift, and many other people!

We have got two videos of the event from our side and a lot of pictures too. Here they go:
