Robi, I use the route you posted often enough and but early in the morning I think this will be a faster and shorter route.

Well I just wanted to enjoy the NICE road experience instead of going through the city as there is no hurry to reach the start up point. Anyways if you guys still want togo through the city I am fine with it.

2) Headlights On

During daytime: On your "small" lights and your fog lights.

To identify convoy cars in the rear view mirror/s


During nighttime: On your headlights and your fog lights (yellow cellophane will be cellotaped @ Mysore on foglights for the night drive)

The yellow cellophane taping renders convoy cars identifiable in the rear view mirror/s at night when every other vehicle has its headlights and/or fog lights on.

Cheers

I've been following this post from the beginning and really wanted to participate in this meet. Unfortunately, my membership was only approved yesterday. I know it's too late but just wanted to check with RSUDARSANAN whether I've a chance or not.

If I'm unlucky, I'll wait for the next opportunity.

Wow! I seemed to have missed pages of updates.
So I am guessing we need to start from our homes at 5.00 AM?

Robi, I have no clue on how to reach the first breakfast destination
Can I join you folks along with my family at the Sony World junction.

You guys will have to move slow though!
If there is anyone else starting from the Sarjapur - Marathahalli - Kormangala region..please PM me.

Folks:

A retro to THE FINAL COUNT DOWN !



“CRUEL TO BE KIND IN THE RIGHT MEASURE”

CRUEL= the itinerary timings, esp. the dep time

TO BE KIND= to the drive ethos

IN THE RIGHT MEASURE= the intention

A twilight welcome beckons.

Catch you all tomorrow at the crack of dawn !

Cheers
