These pics are dedicated to the bikers. They must be seen in high resolution to get the actual effect.

Looks like I missed a good meet, I had a gruelling day yesterday and also my car has gone in for a service (was not able to go and fetch it!) so decided to take a rain check.

Next time!

Hey guys had a wonderful time yesterday - the meet was short and sweet. Finally managed to put faces to the handle names.

All in all, a great day with an equally great company of like minded folks. We should do this more often, than sit at our desks and type away :P

Cheers !!!

Bring em on!

It was a wonderful drive, Curvy and empty. Me and my abarth loved it.
Hemanth, Did you come back and exited the SH and went beside the resort? Or you went ahead and curved around the hill far ahead via Thondebhavi?

What a turn-out

Been ages since my last meet and it was nice to meet so many like-minded folks.

The weather was hot, i was cooking in the heat and secretly i was wishing i had driven down instead, but it was a nice change to ride after a long time as well.

Had a great Sunday morning, thanks to each one of you.

Seeing this, I remember my Ferrari gifted which I got in shell...in 2009 IIRC.
Bangalore's summer had melted it and it went out of shape when I had fixed it there and parked it in the sun.

On my return journey, I took the Ghati subramanya road Just before that railway overbridge. I didn't go to Thondebhavi.
Below is the route I took from our breakfast point and back to the same point.
On top, you can see Gunjur lake which brraj and shishirbn went.

Zoom in on the curves

There were 3 hairpin bends/ U-turns/ Switchbacks Whatever you may like to call them.
Since tarmac was good I took those fairly fast and enjoyed each one of them.
By the time nkrishnap, KarthiK and crazy_driver could finish a tender coconut, I caught up with them near D-cross.

+1. During monsoon, this is the most scenic area between Bangalore and Gauribidanur

@brraj, please post the picture of your i10 which you took at our meeting point with the mud wall as the background.


A stat:
This meet had the attendance of 5 of the top 10 TBHP sticker spotters
IRONHWK, hemanth.anand, suhaas307, astonlobo and KarthikK

@brraj is the unofficial off-road scout for the Bangalore BHP gang. In previous meets, he has gone where no SUV has gone before. His i10 has jumped onto some rocks that even @aviorp's Scorpio did not think of going to!
