It was followed by a pretty quick black baleno which was turbo charged. Had an Evo boot spoiler and was sounding very sweet.
Oh yeah, they were sounding amazing and we were left awestruck. Loved that white Busa. BTW, after that 3 more super bikes came. Couldn't recognize two of them, might be KTM Dukes (they were quite high and looked like the old BMW bike type) and probably a Triumph. Didn't notice the Baleno as I was busy shooting.

Hey that was me and my friend. I was clicking some pics of my Scorpio. By that time others have already left. It was actually just after the line up shoot.

at the outset, i apologise for keeping you guys waiting at the meeting point and being late. first, the alarm didn't go off so got up late (but still could have made it on time); this was followed by one of the legs of the tripod slipping (had forgotten to latch it) resulting the whole setup falling down when the car went on a bump. took some time to fix it back again.

here's the cam setup:

haven't edited the videos; will upload once done!

anyways, since the start of the trip is pretty much covered (Brandon i love those pictures you've taken while waiting on the hill; specially the one of your car), i'll try to put some of the pictures which haven't been covered!

it's a bird; it's a plane;

Do you have more details on turbo charged baleno? may be you should create a separate thread.

alrighty, here's a teaser. couldn't get the R1s (they sneaked up on me), but managed to get the Busa. the turbulence you here is because i kept the windows down to get the roar of the Busa's engine



mind you, i'm doing 80kmph when the Busa passes me. looks like the car its standing still

Wow, that was pretty fast overtaking. I think you've lot more videos of the drive? Please share them. My android deserted me when I needed it the most. Video I took got corrupted :(
BTW, Rajeev's remapped Magnum also was flying most of the time while going towards Nandi Hills. And so was the Innova (zoomsun's right?).

Yes, tried to catch them up but no results, we(BR.Raj, brandon,zoomsun & me) had a small break before taking the left turn towards Nandi road and when Raj started or took off, the sound scared and almost took living day light out of few boy/girl bikers standing by road side.

Was impressed by your setup in the car. Now, after watching these videos, I want to get one for myself. Will trouble you when I do so.
BTW, nice videos and you've done a good job at editing them. Waiting for videos with all bhpians driving together. I hope you have some.
