Now a bit OT and rail spotting info for the day.

WDG3A with red devil horns with an unknown rake near Doddaballapur Railways Station. The horn was too good.

Twin WGD3A (Orange) from Gooty with BOXN Rake toward Rajankunte.

WDP4 from KJM Shed with Kacheguda - Yeswantapur Rake. Loco Pilot waved too.

Gooty - WDM3A towards Hindupur with an unknown passenger - Guessing it is the Guntur passenger. It had a lousy horn though.

Missed it! I was preoccupied the entire weekend. Hope to make it for the next meet. I am sure it would have been a great/fun meet.

Did anyone spot a 3 wheeler bike with the size of maruthi van? It was coming in the opposite direction when we were heading after yelahanka signal.

Bring em on!
Even you Linea would have made it.

key is to
- Slot it in first gear and slight acceleration when required.
- Have a recovery vehicle before doing it.
I wouldn't have taken risk if it was only my vehicle but after seeing 4 tractors for the rescue did it.

By the way love the snap which shishir has taken where i10 rear left single wheel was up in the air.

It was a wonderful drive, Curvy and empty. Me and my abarth loved it.
Even myself & shishir took the Ghati subramanya road Just before that railway over bridge and did not miss the curves which Hondadude has posted.

I would have surely trekked the hill if it was 6am, anyway next time.

If so, it's the Can Am Spyder.

Ok, NOw I guess everyone has seen what the total group did in the meet. I will not be posting the same photos.,

I will post the photos which every one missed. It was one heck of a drive and I guess everyone would have loved to be at this below spot.

It was worth the drive for Me and BRRAJ.

The lake was so awesome and I can challenge everyone would have loved it if you guys had followed us.

So let the pics speak for itself

Thanks a bunch for capturing this. The Ducati hiding behind the Intruder was a meanie. And I really mean especially after he leaned-in the left side of his handle bar almost below the right side of the handle-bar of an HH Splendor in an overtaking manoeuvre when he sprung into action.

@speed kills - That was the one.

@n_aditya - Humorous, Shishir is going to post i10 on 2 wheels so be prepared with another hilarious photo .

@Shishir - You should also post the off roading pictures at Makalidurga main meeting point which many missed.

Now i missed to mention "Petrol Scam" story while on the way to hebbal meeting point.

This petrol bunk is in JC road and that is the only one in JC road i guess. Asked him to fill for rs1500.
Didn't get out as i could see the meter readings from my rear left window. He started to fill and as soon as its nearing 1000rs a person came to me and asked..

He - Sir, please type your mobile number to get discount coupon for cafe coffee day.
Me - Not interested.(Gave me his Credit card reader to type my mobile number)
He - Sir, you will get discounts on you next fill as well.
Me - Not interested.

Meanwhile i turn to see whats the meter reading (was around 1200rs by now) and the guy who was filling petrol stopped filling and was typing 1500 on console. Immediately came to know its a scam and my blood was boiling. Early morning not in a mood to fight got down as if i am going to hit him. suddenly the guy who was offering discount coupon knowing the scenario told me that the meter has tripped and asked me to wait till he rectifies and went inside the building. From the building he shouted to the filler saying the meter has tripped and wait for some time. After some time the meter reading from 1500 got back to 1200 which was the actual fill. Paid 1200 and left to meeting point.

Thanks to everyone for the amazing meet yesterday. What was initially supposed to be a 4 member meet multiplied by 10 times, fantastic stuff! It was great to meet lots of new faces who were attending a meet for the first time.

Nice report by mempheS.D, gives a gist of the entire event from start to finish. nkrishnap, Sidhu, crazyDriver, Soumyajit9, PC77 and myself headed back via the same route after the event, after stopping for some tender coconut. A few of you went to Green valley resort for lunch after the meet, could you please post pictures of what happened there? *winks*

Awesome pictures by everyone, especially superb shots by guyfrmblr and hemanth.anand!

I didn't take too many pictures since there were so many others taking better shots. I'll post whatever I have in the evening. Keep 'em pictures coming, whoever took pics.

P.S - Sorry for the rather late entrance at the starting point - alarm clocks and Sunday mornings don't go hand in hand you see.

lol. We went to Green Valley resort and were not allowed to enter inside. The place was empty but they said they only allow entry by appointment!

Pretty silly. The manager said you need reservation or you need to opt for package deal. We went back towards Yelahanka and stopped for snacks and refreshments at Silver Oaks resort next to Angsana.

Very peaceful place. Ended up chatting there for more than an hour.

Also realised that the next meet we do should be a half day package with lunch at one of these resorts. While we were at Silver Oaks, each one of us was tempted to jump into the pool.

I think this area of Bangalore has very good roads that are relatively free and lots of resorts as well.

+1 Nice idea there. I wish there were many more such meets every month or every two months atleast.

So here goes the I10 wheels up in the air. Though I don't know what it was supposed to do. But I guess since I was watching it, it didn't do anything there.
