Hello MWZD,

Sir, regret once again for time that you spent waiting at Atithi Hotel. The venue was changed to Parsi Dairy as Atithi hotel was fully occupied & parking was also almost full.

As I did not had your mobile number, so could not inform you about venue change.

This is learning for next drive to have a car count & note everyone's mobile number before starting the drive.

Going to the Parsi Dhaba was a good decsion as the place was nice with ample parking and no other people. Now look forward to a Monsoon Meet!
Thank you Maverick5490.

Yes Parsi Dhaba was a good place where we have a nice time talking. Only problem we missed MWZD, who was waiting for us at Atithi hotel. Hope the moonsoon drive (& monsoons) happens soon.

Thank you Mohan.

But the bigger appreciation should go to you for offering me a seat in your car, so that I can look on co-ordination activities.

Thank you once again for a ride & yes you are indeed a very good driver. Your car feels rock solid at speeds of 130+.

My first Team-BHP meet and it was a pleasure. A fab drive, especially the return run.

Wanted to meet everyone since ages. Great drivers all. Wizards at gizmos, tremendous knowhow about wheels. Felt good. Looking forward eagerly to the next meet.

Kudos Jignesh/KSM.

Thanx for the heads up Karan and Swapnil.

Had awesome Lassi along with delicious Kheema Pav for Breakfast at the Parsi Dhaba. Would love to go there again someday to explore the really elaborate menu!

Did not join for lunch, so no idea about the food at DD.

There will always be a next time, hope you are ready for that.

Dont know about the b'fast, but lunch was sumptous with lots of interesting thread discussion on the platter esp Desmosedici's Gypsy, pranav's modded Honda City etc. Apart from these the regular veg/non veg fare which unfortunately didnt get any special attention in the heat of discussions.

Inspite of "Sun" maharaj at his tempest best, we have our own Varun (@powertrain) to cool us down. All in all a great meet, would have been super duper if we had the superbikers staying back and given us our moment of glory for clicking some pics.

Hello Guys!!

It was great to meet the most of you for lunch yesterday, although after seeing all the pics from the drive posted here i feel bad for missing out on a good fun drive and missed out on meeting quite a few members who did not stay for lunch. I was actually the last one to arrive for the meet but still managed to have some good conversations on the lunch table specially with Ghodlur, Powertrain, Desmo, Pranav, Engrohit, Dar3devil, Jignesh and Mohan. Got to meet the legend i.e HVK Sir. Special thanks to Jignesh for co-ordinating (i was in touch with him over SMS since morning).

@Carzone good to meet you although for only a few minutes.
@KSM & @Balenopower hope to see you guys soon at the daily bandra meet.
@Powertrain sending you my number over PM, lets be in touch.
@Desmo, @Ghodlur and @Engrohit as decided lets have a mini Powai meet soon. Maybe on a firday evening dinner and drinks at one of the restaurants there. Others living/ not living and working/ not working in powai can join in too
@SDP yes that was me in the HKS T Shirt.

Regards,
Varun

Just a note of 'Thank You' for yesterday's tbhp meet. My son saw your bike at Dahisar toll naka and was really impressed. His admiration for you and your ride increased manyfolds when he saw you zooming past our XUV a few times and saw you leaning in those curves!

You have a young fan now, who thinks of you as nothing less than a GOD.

He clicked so many pics of you and Anku during the return journey that we lost count.

Thanks for speaking to him... he now believes you are his friend!

Would look forward to future meets!

Regards
SDP
Hey SDP, your son surely is a good kid and i could see his enthusiasm and relate to his love for motorcycles. Nothing much different from my own childhood. I am so glad that he had a good time joining us for the drive/ride. Looking forward to meeting you both soon on many such future meets. Lastly, thank you for the pictures, i would cherish the high res of some that i really liked.

Also thankful to everybody else who made it and also to KSM to initiate and execute.. Waiting for the pictures from Urja now...

Yes, of course. Sorry, couldn't interact this time. With HVK and engrohit joining at our table, didn't realize how time flew. Next time!

There was a black Fabia at the meet. Visible in Mohan Mathew's snaps.

Thank you Mr. Harish.

It was surprising to know that you returned from Banglore late last evening & still decided to join the drive. Also you had a flat tyre in morning which you got repaired & still managed to reach Dahisar Check Naka on scheduled time.

Hope you have you on lunch next time.
