I had to miss the event, but had some last-moment hiccup in my biz, which didn't allow me to sleep for the whole night, and didn't fancy driving 500 kms without sufficient sleep!

Would certainly try to join the next one - and yep Goa sounds like an AWESOME plan!

Although I'm one of the newest TBHIans, this time, I'd like to lead the road with my s80 and clear the traffic

That is such a shame because you missed a great event.

If you were tired and did not wish to drive that far, you could have sat as a passenger in one of the various vehicles going. Some of us did that. The company is always welcome.

And it would have been so awesome on this trip with an s80 and a 320d leading the way and clearing traffic. A true opportunity missed. Ah well, perhaps next time.

It was an awesome team-bhp meet and nice to put some faces behind the handles.

Reached Point A(Just after Hebbal Flyover) by 6:10AM
Awesome B'fast by Waseem Sir. I normally don't like Upma but the one he brought was delicious.
The drive was excellent throughout. Driving with Bhpians and never felt that it was a 760Km drive.
Nice restaurant with good ambiance!
The food was excellent too, especially the fish. Also, despite the huge number, Waseem sir made sure every one got what they required. Great effort from him!
I couldn't interact with each and every one, as it was a huge group. Anyways, there is always a next time.
A BIG thanks to ALL who made this meet a grand success.

Total Distance Covered: 761.8 Kms
Fuel(Diesel) Consumed: 40.39L
AC: 100% ON
FE: 18.86 (Had it not been for the traffic between Hebbal to Bannerghatta Road it would have crossed 19).

Now, waiting for the next meet.

Therefore, organizing a repeat would not be too much of an issue as long as there is interest from all BHPians from all these states.
Aha, been there, done that. I was just upping the ante on Rajesh Rawal’s Pune-Hyd meet thoughts. Well then, this calls for a separate thread and in good time another meet…whenever, wherever. Over to you Mobike008, our very own Tbhp-mega meets ‘PiedPiper’

Thank you for all the kind words.

It was such a pleasure meeting all of you.This drive meet was something special for me,met old pals and made lots of new friends.

I hope we have such drive meets as frequently as possible and yes, we should do the Goa meet.This place serves some great sea food.We could try local cuisine and visit restaurants which are frequented by locals, (I can dig out many of them.).

Lets set the ball rolling.When do we do this GOA MEET.?

Suggestions please.?

Waseem.

Wow - that's quite an amazing meet there - and an equally amazing turnout as well!! It was a well deserved break for everyone out there I guess!! Kudos to all the organizers who pulled off this meet!

@mobike008, @rkNair, @jeet

Nice report.

What a Mega drive meet it was! I had a great time interacting with everyone.

A lot has been said already by everyone here but I would just like to add a bit to it. The day started off with a delicious breakfast. Special thanks to Nikhil and Bajaj saab for the idly's and eggs. They certainly got the juices churning and I was hungry in no time.

I've never been to DVR mansion at Kurnool and boy what a surprise it was. The ambiance was amazing and the food was fantastic.

And, once again, thanks to all who organized this. It was a day very well spent.

@Rider60

Hope you reached back in one piece. While returning, we halted for a while at Munnawar dhaba and while others turned up you didn't or maybe you zoomed past us without we realizing it. Looks like 110 horses is not just for show.

btw, did you write your ownership review on how you remapped your punto 90 hp to 110 hp. I tried searching here but couldn't find it. I would love to read why you went for a remap and what are statistics after the remap.

So sorry. My bad. I meant to say, an s80, a 320d and a RAPID. Sleep deprivation makes you forgetful

Anyway, you were an awesome sweeper and lead car. Looking forward to the next drive when more videos of both vehicles will come.

Going by the pics and reports looks like this mega meet was a mega success. Feel sad I missed out on the event and meeting all the T-BHPians, esp the Bangalore team.

Good on you, Silverwood and Mobike008 for taking care of everything. Not many pics of the food though.

Was just kidding, but thanks for the compliments anyway!

@arun_josie
Great photographs!

If people don't mind their number plates visible I can upload them right away!

I wll not be interested in Goa during April, May and most of June, essentially, till the weather conditions are conducive at Goa. If we are talking late June to August, I am interested.

Post the photos with number plates showing. The plates are already showing in earlier posts so does not matter any more.

My version : Installment 1.

Me & Torrent were late by 3 mins at Point A. Hence no pictures from there.
The traffic police shooed us away from our original meeting spot(Point B).
We improvised & gathered a few kms away.

It turned out to be a better location.

I made one mistake, while waiting at Point B, had a quick dig at a couple of mysore bondas at Shamshabad to compensate for breakfast.
I did not expect the below. May be I would want to be better informed next time.

The Idli/Bread shop in full swing with itz fare

Just before starting, a quick get together to sync the GPS/phones/etc on the next pitstop (New Munavar Hotel). See the group huddle.
It is a different story that 2 vehicles were looking for (Old Munavar Hotel)

As Hyd_Traveller already mentioned meet in Goa in this summer wont be too great. Firstly, its too early for another mega meet, secondly, most of the people wont be interested for such a longish drive so soon ( if its proposed for April/May).

Why not repeat 2008 inter-state meet? I anyways plan to be in Goa during Aug 15 (Thursday) weekend during which period iam sure plenty of other BHPians will also be planning to holiday there which can be used to coincide with a mega inter state meet.

We can start a dedicated thread to discuss this early June-2013
