Hello All,

Just came back from the mega meet. It was a wonderful meet to say the least. Thank you all for attending. Also appreciate all the spouses joining and enjoying good company within themselves. The high point were all the kids (junior BHP-ians) remaining in great mood for entire day.

Today we had army of photography experts with DSLR camera. Request all of them to post the photographs.

The highpoint was breakfast location near Pawna Lake. Most of us have made up my mind to come back there with our spouses.

Thanks,

It was a beautiful day with like minded people, nothing better can be asked for.

Here is a 360 degree photo of almost all the rides at the Breakfast parking lot with their owners chatting away to glory.

Hi All,

Reached safely @ home. Hope all of you also reached safely. Kalamboli to Juinagar traffic was terrible at certain patches - Part of our lives.

Today's Mega Meet was really great. More than 30 cars came @ Pawna itself. Even being first timer for such meet, I found it very good and interesting. Even my family enjoyed a lot. Especially my son just loved FFE show and Gypsy drive.
Will share some snaps later.

Hope in next meet car count will increase with more T-BHPians.

Cheers!

This was really a Mega Meet. A truly successful one. 40 cars in total and more than 60 people. Really had a good time. Waiting for the report and the pics.

It was a nice meet, good to see some of the faces that meet online! Though I couldn't stay till the end ( Sunny's ), I did meet the mumbai people at Pawana. It was good to see a sizeable number of people at the meet. Here are a couple of photos taken before/during/after the meet.

It was a brilliant meet! Great meeting the gang and also meeting loads of new people! Excellent planning, perfect execution! I'm attaching a pic of the cars that drove to Pawna. Rishi's Cruze and Pritam's Octy are missing from the frame.


Bucketloads of pics to follow.

Cheers!
Cartman.

Attended a meet after ages. It was pleasure meeting Raj, swapnil and others. Missed our regular old school guys. Venue was really nice. Sadly I didn't enjoy my ride after entering Lonavala as I was on bike. We should do this often. Thank you guys. 0

P. S.
Can someone share my bike pics please.

Some photos first: They are a bit on the larger side (800x600) so may take time to load completely.

Is this the sunrise? The sun is playing hide and seek, as if to suggest it's too early to be out of bed. But then we are a crazy lot, aren't we?

The Duckling - funnily it dipped into the water and resurfaced a few feet away every now and then. And it held something in its tiny beak, couldn't make out if it was a fish or some garbage:

The ducks are waiting for me to move aside so they can come up through a narrow gap in the pallisade. I realized it very late as I kept shooting and they kept quacking. Finally when I moved away they hurried through the slit into the upper ground:

A wonderful meet. I wasn't sure of attending, but a late evening message from turbo_torque prompted me to change my decision and attend at least the breakfast meet. Happy to make new friends and meet everyone.

Big apologies to the TBHP Wives for not taking them around in the Nano. Next time for sure!

I was missing the sound of the superbikes (not allowed on the e-way) which I had experienced in my first TBHP drive to Manas, Igatpuri. But the Shippie-with-a-loud-exhaust made up for it with his Elantra's exhaust.

The place was good, and specially without any other crowds, it was much more comfortable. The breakfast was good too, and understandably it took a little time with so many people pouring in at the same time. But the staff managed it all well.

A big round of applause is due to Swapnil and his team (and Jignesh) for conceptualizing and organizing this meet.

Am now waiting to see the pictures from the rooftop!
