Those pics look so cool. I so wanted to come but ongoing MBA exams have crimped that plan. Still, hoping to make it for the Hyd-Blr meet on 24, time permitting.

Nice group of vehicles. Looks like you all had so much fun.

It was a morning well spent & was really nice meeting fellow BHPians today. Picked Jaggu from Silk Board and reached Columbia Asia at ~7.00 and it was a nice sight seeing some 30+ cars in the service road. Nice meeting old friends & some new friends. Had to return early after breakfast as had work planned later in the day.

Let's do a 1/2 day outing sometime at a lake side/relaxed place where family can also relax.

Here is a picture I managed to take, from my mobile, at yelhanka signal

I attended a meet after a really long time. It was nice to put some faces to the handles here. This was a quick meet only in terms of time, but the number of people who turned up was great as is obvious from the photos. Let's organize a bigger and proper meet next time. It's been really long since we Bangalore folks had one.

Mods: This post contains 20 Pics ! Hope it's not "moderated out". It was a super meet. An exception request please !

It was an amazing meet today. The super excitement that I had since last couple of days was never gone. Thoroughly enjoyed the meet. Amazing roads to drive on. After a long long time, I could touch 120 today !!! Nice meeting the "Baaps" (Mods), the Semi Baaps (Dist., Senior and BHPians).

Here are some pics from my side. I think there was an official photographer or something (with a cap n moustache) ? Will he also be uploading the pics, or one of our mods will upload ?

One more, I missed to capture khan_sultan's Prado. That was a nice looking monster !!

A part of the Line Up @ Breakfast Point (sorry, the shop didn't have a name):

Lookie lookie, who's that grinning fella in the Black Getz ?

A long Shot while entering 'the point':

Another long shot. OK. That Tempo Traveller was not ours'.

Was I shaky while taking the below two shots ? Yes, Pretty Shaky !!!

OK. That looked nice from here. But we didn't go there.

A Random Shot trying to be a Camera Pro !

That's what stopped us from a serious offroading to Makalidurga:

Hmmm... Yes, there were flowers too in the meet !

This drew my attention. I am a decent fan of the Gypsy.

Everyone tried to capture the panorama of the rides. So did I with the shooters.

My brother was visiting me over the weekend to break free from the college grind especially after an internal exam. We had a busy Saturday hopping around town and eventually retired for the night at about 2am. At that point, I wasn't too sure whether we'd really be able to get out of the bed with just 3 hours of sleep. The one thing that did pump up the excitement was the growing number of members who committed to make it to the meet even at about 10pm the previous night.

Sunday Mar 10, 5am: BINGO ! The alarm was successful.

Sunday Mar 10, 6.40am: We reach the meeting point. There were about 15 cars already there and about 3 bikes. That in itself was a huge number for me on a Sunday morning. My first meet.

There was a group of about 4 real "mean"-machines waiting at the same meeting point. For a moment, I just prayed that that group's gonna be with us on our morning drive too. YES - a Suzuki Intruder and some Ducatis. I hope someone was able to get a click of that. It was really a sight to see and "hear" when they pulled off "their" meeting point. Especially the Ducati. YES! My morning's already made. But one thing was now sure - that group was NOT tbhp.. lol.

The growing number of cars and bikes at the meeting point until about 7.10am was a sight to see capturing a lot of attention too from passersby. Some 30 cars and 8 motorbikes!

We leave for the idly shop at Doddaballapur railway station. A convoy of the "whole" group would have been a treat if could have been made possible. But then, there were smaller convoys moving towards destination IDLY.

The idly shop guy was in for a treat. It was all over in no time. Some 40 plates of idli orders instantly. And then lemon rice got over. And then the pulao! I really don't know what IronHawk and <someone else> who got to the idly shop late got to eat.

The locals were stunned by the lineup of bikes and I could see the worry in n_aditya's eyes when they got closer to the bikes..lol. Can't blame him.

It was time to leave from there towards MakaliDurga and so we did.

The flat twisties were really fun. Really empty roads. Excellent tarmac. I only wish they continued for longer. I red-lined after a long time because the roads needed to be done justice to and the Fabia sure did want to stretch her legs too. And of course, now that we were out of the city, it was time to let some fresh air into the cabin too, so turned the Air Re-Circulation mode OFF too. Boy! It was fun. The Ninjas maneuvering the corners was really a sight to see and I was only praying that no one kills the fun trying to overtake on a blind corner.

This is what our destination was:
A not so "quick" Bangalore T-BHP meet with 25 cars, 10 bikes and 40 BHPians-image00001.jpg

The road to the foot of the hill. The Gypsy was now in its HOME-TURF and I could see that grin.

Photoshoot:

I couldn't capture a good panoramic view but I am sure someone did.

While some members of the group decided to cool it off at a nearby resort, I was already fagged out from the heat and decided to head back home. There were a few who joined along. Got back home by about NOON, had an awesome lunch and hit the sack! A good 3 hours of napping.... and WAH! WHAT A WEEKEND....

Thank you Team BHp.

This is how H4WK spots TBHP stickers

Then we reached Doddaballapur railway station to finish the shack's stock of idlis
By the time everyone finished one round of idlis, IRONH4WK returned.
The master spotter had failed to spot the convoy and had flown in a different direction

After this, everyone bid goodbye and left.
I took a detour since I wanted to see the curves what I had come for.
It was a wonderful drive, Curvy and empty. Me and my abarth loved it.
