I need to go home and then check if my folks at home have preserved a few of them in the deep freezer.
You are right.. this is indeed the sky above Vidyaranyapura, Sahakarakanagar and Yelahanka Area!

I reached home driving through Hammer and Thongs, My VW Variant cover was shredded to pieces....

I need to see how many dents my car has tomorrow morning.

The hailstorms were as big as a Chicken Eggs

Yes Pavan. That is what my folks at home (Vidyaranyapura) called me for to tell me how big were the hails and I couldnt believe and asked my sister to collect a few in a bowl and preserve it till I get to see them.

Hoping that there shouldn't me much damage to your classics, luckily for me, my car is safe in the office basement till I drive back home in a while from now.

Thanks for the Pics.

My poor little M-800 has atleast 10 almost difficult to notice dents

Regarding my classics, They can take more than that. So no worries.

Good old Murphy's law. Went to take my Thunderbird from its 2nd service, bike all polished and gleaming, and riding back through rain-induced slush.
