He was of the sorts who would look to jump either on the right or left considering traffic on either side.

Major fail sir, if you are reading this.
That is me.

@Spitfire - all the way is just 100m, where the left lane is always occupied by either buses or maxicabs, who takes a sudden right to take off pushing you off track forcing to occupy the right lane. So I see a skewed feedback, rather a venting out.

While that is definitely not my daily style, I have to be a Roman in Rome sometimes, and now I think I know one of the Romans who was pushing me from behind so hard .

Thank you

Firstly I didn't expect it to be you, since I follow your travelogues quite religiously.

I was on the bike on the right lane. You moved from middle of the road to the right lane a couple of vehicles in front of me. The bus was still at the bus stop then. And started moving only when I was about to pass it.

About it being just 100m, I agree but you could have waited behind the bus instead of coming to the right lane. Not that it created a issue, I felt its not the right way to drive.

The buses don't stop there for more then a few seconds anyways.

Since this is my daily route I happen to notice things and this bus stop like all in Bangalore suffer from impatient drivers who cannot wait for the bus to move and instead move right in the other lane blocking the path of people in the right (correct) lane.

I brought it here because one of these happened to have a TBHP stickers. That's its. I would never have bothered otherwise.

I am not a Roman. I prefer not to follow the crowd.

I stick to the right lane from the HAL signal to this Kodihalli busstop and then move to the left lane immediately after this bus stop. This due to the fact that the bus stopping here (blocking left lane) makes it fairly easy for me to change lanes. Even on the bike I do not change lanes only because most of the time the left lane is faster here then the right lane.

I saw it I reported it. I had no other intention.

Anyways we both have some reasons in that stretch of road.

Where : ORR, you were with me from Bellandur to Agara Junction

Sorry din't notice you flashing, only once you went past me at Ecospace and positioned your bike so I could see your sticker I realized why a bike was flashing behind me. LoL

I rarely take the car to work, else I'm usually on bike. Was finally good to have a "proper" mutual spotting!

For very very Sane driving on bike! Kudos!

Spotted a red Indigo CS numbered MH12 FK XXXX on the MHCTC road going toward Kondhwa. Flashed my lights and the owner went on the side and let me go ahead. Waved him. Later met at the Lullanagar signal and since I was on my bike I signaled to him with a 'T' hand formation but the owner did not possibly get it. Then he lowers his co-driver side window and asks me what it is. I shouted "Team-bhp sticker at your car's rear" and he nods and closes the window without any other reaction

I guess he must not be a member here and hence the weird reaction. I don't think I am waving out to anyone else who has stickers on their car. It was pretty embarassing for me to say the least

whoa! that was really quick posting! it was great to meet you in person. I almost thought it was yet another Pseudo-BHPian after multiple flashes, until you noticed the sticker on my bike and waved.
I'm surprised you were able to see the sticker actually.. the bike was drenched in muck and slush after today morning's downpour


very well maintained car you've got there.. and superb driving on the road. where do you stay btw? I noticed you taking a turn towards HSR layout. I got stuck in the heavy rain and to top it, hadn't carried my jacket and gloves today. Talk about murphy's laws.
