Met Schoudhury again yesterday morning, inside PTP campus on the way to our respective offices. Exchanged quick hi's and waves

Default Team-BHP STICKERS are HERE! Post sightings & pics of them on your car...

I am sure this has been discussed here before, but was there any consensus on what should be the "greet" sign when you see someone sporting a t-bhp sticker? Is it the thumbs-up sign, because I have seen a few people mention that before in the t-bhp stickers thread. The problem with that is that people in 4-wheelers with windows up cannot get the attention of the other driver. Also the thumbs up sign can be confused and dangerous when bikers gesture driving one-handed.

Funny side story : Last week a biker overtakes me and starts waving and pointing at his bike's rear/tire and I have a confused look on my face. He races ahead and now I am left wondering if he was pointing that I have flat tyre! I immediately stop few meters ahead and check all four tyres to be in perfect condition. When I go behind my car, I see I have 2 t-bhp stickers and then I realize he was pointing to those and I smile.

I would like to propose a signature honk as all vehicles have a horn. How about "<start> Beep Beep <pause> Beep Beep Beep <end>" sounding something like "<start> Pom Pom <pause> Pom Pom Pom <end>"? This way, you immediately recognize the tone and know that it is a t-bhpian and will have a smile on your face. The person can be behind you, beside you, ahead of you while driving.

But since this is a honk, we should avoid doing this near hospitals and the standard traffic rules should be followed with respect to no honk zones.

Thoughts?

Time : 26th november (last saturday) at 5.30pm
Additional info :I think you had come with your wife and kids. When I walked in with my friend, I saw a family going out and a minute later the baleno was missing

Does this car belong to mayankha1806 by any chance? Let me guess, you are swapping the baleno for a civic in the near future?
Yup thats me, not sure how did i miss acknowledging this post. Thanks.

Naaa, we did not finalized the deal with Dakshin Honda guys. The deal did not go through, still awaiting my loan approval (SBI Guys are slow, but better IMHO)

So far I have found that twice thumbs up, twice thumb backwards works once youve got attention.
More on this in bits and parts in the TBHP stickers thread.

Default Re: Greeting fellow t-bhpian while driving

The best greeting is a courtesy. I don't have the sticker, though I've chanced upon one particular gent in a black (stickered) Safari who was probably one of the most courteous and considerate drivers I've seen, ever. Near-perfect use of mirrors and lights, and very conscious about using the passing lane.

I think one should be able to tell a fellow member form the driving style. Given how India is, courtesy itself should be enough of a differentiator.

Are you kidding? You have to sign in a register and join the queue. Lots of BHPians are still waiting to get spotted by the hawk
