The Mumbai Meet was truly awesome. Enjoyed the drive on NH3 and whosoever suggested Igatpuri hats off to him. Superb roads with curves was just amazing.

Got to meet previous bhpians and made new friends Raj_5004, Lamboguy, Procircuit234 and many more. Finally got to meet HVK sir and Iqbal Veerji.

Had reached Jupiter Hospital at 7:15 am only to find just 2 cars. Next time onwards Mumbai bhpians please be on time.

Waiting for next T-Bhp meet with drive first.

Here are a few pictures.

The 500 NM car.

Guys,

Anyone clicked the pics of the ICE on display in one of the Punto post lunch. Was it Raj_5004's or somebody else? I have uploaded the pic of Raj_5004 and his friend (Was it a BHPian?) in the ICEd Punto.

The meet was such a huge hit that it was very difficult to remember BHPians handles. Next time we need to keep this issue in mind and think of a novel idea of displaying the handle names.

Ooh, I still remember the twisties!

I still remember you were jumping on the road when you touched your burning hot front disc when we stopped for a while after the ghats. we were rolling inside the punto when we saw that!

You forgot Amit's (anthony d'cruz) Punto, who overtook us in the ghats?!?! While I was utilising the entire curve, he overtook me from the inside corner, LOLZ! he was with us for a short while and later zoomed off, only to ride the Busa!

The return drive with the altura & the Vento was the most fun part of the drive. Next time, GET YOUR CAR TOO!

Only to spoil the power to weight ratio.

Kidding...

Yes, it was mine.

Post lunch, it was ICE & FFE show!

Yes, he is a BHPian (S2!!!). Where is the pic?


By the way, I was surprised to see three puntos turned up for the meet, and all were 90hps (its a rare breed & T-BHP had 3 for the meet)! Two were white & both had black roofs! I was totally unaware BolBolero bought a new Red Punto 90hp.

Mr. Baleno when can we expect some footage from the rear bumper cam which was taken while descending the ghat?
Thank you bro. Lot of practice rewards you always with improved skills. Still far from being where i want be.

Also, as you were driving around me most of the time i got more than a glimpse of your decent driving skills too. Hope the white vento did not worry you too much, he was just trying to make way for our Go pro to get a good shot at me.

I remember seeing a couple of bikers on similar bikes riding on the Eastern Express Highway from Mulund/Airoli direction towards Mumbai, early in the mornings (7:30ish).

Let me publicly admire your self restraint, I could make that out from the discussions at Manas I overheard. Ride safe!
Those bikers are very regular on that route on sunday mornings, especially during this season. Not many other roads around our city that could bring as good riding pleasure.

Thank you as well for the good words, but as i mentioned earlier, there is still a lot to learn.

What was your Guess Brraj? The ML is not a Brabus Benz but has a Brabus performance Kit which is further tuned to give out more power than the stock kit does. Roughly 285-290 bhp and 610 nm torque, stock kit is 270 bhp and 590 nm torque.

, A different venue this time please.


Sorry for the late post. The morning started off with the cops not letting me take the car out of my residence due to the Marathon at 6.15am, to finally managing a window at 7.40am to playing catch up and eventually being the first to reach Manas. I had a wonderful and spirited drive (wont recommend anyone to try it ). It was nice meeting some of the Members and the next time i shall try and be a little more social, drive and Meet wise.

J.I.G. [Japanese, Italian, German]. Baleno, Punto, Vento, they even rhyme.

Both the Punto 90HP were really pushing themselves to the limit. I was looking at the showdown from back and waiting for a straight to get ahead.

My first TBhp meet and wasn't even sure that I was going to make it, but it sure was an awesome meet. Met up with some old friends and made some new ones, especially Mani, Kaushik, Nikhil and Viraj

Had a late night and so missed out on the "awesome drive", but the fabulous lunch and the vibrant travel stories and experiences from HVK and the invigorating auto talk made up for it.

Kudos for the effort and initiative taken by the key TBhpians in organizing it Was also happy that some of the families made it, so I could make it into a "Son"day outing as well....killing two birds with one stone

28 of Jan sounds like a plan, and would love to join in if it comes through. Maybe we could do a drive to Bordi or Bhandaradhara !!!

Cheers to many more such meets.
