Had you come, you'd have had a field day clicking away and posting team-bhp-stickered cars to glory--enough to take care of your monthly target!

BTW--just kidding.

My version : Installment 2 (Final)

On arrival at Hotel DVR Mansion
  • The 2013 Hyderabad Meets Thread : When is next one???-img_5638.jpg

While some of us could park in the basement, most of our cars would have loved to have the sunfilm still on. Not that anyone is complaining.

The restaurant was just open, with the customary poojas & bathis. It was 'misty' inside. The fog slowly settling down.

Could not take enough food photos. Was busy devouring 'em. A small dedication.
However, I cannot believe the below are some of the first food pics of the meet. Come'on folks - Where are the pics ?

Natikodu Vepudu (Country Chicken Pan-Fried) & Pepper Mutton Fry

The Superstars. (Kids who did not complain, but on the contrary Enjoyed the meet). Kudos to the parents.
Now my wifey wants in as soon as my 30 day old second daughter crosses 6 months. Downside, she just told me 'You are not going alone next time'

ArcotSrinivas in full flow. Googled 'Angrez' & watched almost the full movie y'day.

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
. If it's Independence Day, it must be Goa !

1st of all big thanks to waseem for attention to detail right from the word go and I wonder if he did eat or just kept looking after everyone.

Thanks to all Hyderabad bhpian's for inviting us on this awesome drive and it was really nice to meet everyone and a huge shout out to all who made it this possible.

Like others have already mentioned, This was an epic drive and BMW was the center of attention back up and down the trip and good to hear from ravi that things are cool.

It was a fun meet with a good experience on how no matter alert we can be we can still get cheated by the petrol bunks on the highway and I made our jayanth as the Agriculture minister's son and madamji was indeed a movie star in the skoda rapid

Will not speak much about the food that has been said so much that I feel like driving back there just for the fish fry.

Does anyone have a pic with shishir's hat??

Loved being supriyo's rocket ritz's wing man and on the way back being part of a convoy with rapid, bmw, ritz and the dzire had my own adventure on the verna with all electric wiring issues but like the saying goes, all's well that ends well.

I guess let my pics do all the talking now

-Sajan

Meeting point and BMW was our breakfast self service of yummy upma

Now that's what the Verna loves

Worth the drive in the hot sun, missed my sun film a lot
The 2013 Hyderabad Meets Thread : When is next one???-5.jpg

No complaints here, this road is heaven to drive on
The 2013 Hyderabad Meets Thread : When is next one???-6.jpg

Enjoyed being ritz's wing man we kept a steady pace of 140
The 2013 Hyderabad Meets Thread : When is next one???-7.jpg

Was straight out of Top Gear, Clarkson style, should I drive slow and reach to the nearest bunk for full tank like captain slow or?? Well, Power!!! was able to touch 180 smoothly

The beast under the hot sun

We all wait for the xylo to join us and at the same time inspect the beemer's wheel
The 2013 Hyderabad Meets Thread : When is next one???-10.jpg

Now that we regrouped it's time to have a smile and drive along this road
The 2013 Hyderabad Meets Thread : When is next one???-11.jpg

Finally we made it and we did take up the entire road
The 2013 Hyderabad Meets Thread : When is next one???-12.jpg

We were the talk of the town I guess as I don't think that town had seen so many cars
The 2013 Hyderabad Meets Thread : When is next one???-13.jpg

We infact invaded the bus stop as well
The 2013 Hyderabad Meets Thread : When is next one???-14.jpg

On the way back to bangalore, stopped for a nice tea and I got to do a quick clean on my beast and get in time for the pic
The 2013 Hyderabad Meets Thread : When is next one???-15.jpg

Beemer leads the pack while rest of the bhpian's have an gala time
The 2013 Hyderabad Meets Thread : When is next one???-16.jpg

Why not do a nice Pondi trip - probably Bangalore and TN BHPians can catch up - it's an easy 6hr drive; I go to Pondi and Ooty quite often, and even when I had a modest Chevy Spark, it used to hardly take 7 hours with sufficient rest, so I'm sure we can cover it up effortlessly!

Plus, my s80 is dying to get a free run on the highway; I've been enjoying the drive on the NICE road in Bangalore, but a drive to Pondi or Ooty would be awesome to let lose 243 horses!

Anybody up for Pondi or Ooty pls?
