Finally got to see the murcielago in flesh. Followed it all the way from juhu to seven bungalows on my bike.
Must agree the red color does look good and the sound of the engine was really awesome.
I still can't get that sound out of my head

By the way, as I was following the car, there were couple of guys following too in a black honda city, is it any of the t-bhpians?

The guys in the City are his body guards. What time did you see you by the way ?

My friends were also following him on a bike. He stopped for a brief moment at seven bungalows and then left. The bodyguards weren't allowing my friends to overtake them.

Haha... i know those guys never let u overtake them...but dont stop for no body dude... I dont even listen to the cops when some big minister is going and there is a fleet of cop cars surronding it... its pissing off over a long distance... when i find a gap, i floor it ...nxt thing i know every1 is overtaking them after me. And these guys r just regular bodyguards they dont even have a right to stop u unlike cops, just wait till he reachs a speed breaker thats the only time u can overtake him ;-)

Its right that they have no right. But i guess it would be wrong on our part to ride/drive between a convoy car and the main car. They are armed bodyguards and have to be behind his car all the time. Imagine they must be literally jumping out of their skin when someone just tries to get near him. And its happened to my bro itself. Anyone can ride/drive between the 2 cars, but imagine IF anything happens, you are the one who's gonna be caught and questioned for diverting attention/blocking the guards etc etc. They can just slap any case against you.

A similar case once happened with my bro. Spotted the car at 4 Bungalows junction. My bro walks across the road and stops infront of the 360. Asks Spidey if he can take a pic. Spidey says ok. He goes close to the car and guess what. The armed guard comes out with the carbine from the City behind. And when he see's its just a camera in his hand cools down.
In the below pic you can see the guard coming out of the Honda City with the carbine in his right hand :

I guess they are not regular bodyguards. They are plain clothes policemen (in mufti) and not private guards and therefore have the right to stop. I guess private guards do not carry a carbine.
