Speedy very frankly if by any chance I could manage to by-pass you, I wouldn't have had as much fun as I had following you, neck-to-neck. Great driving buddy.

yesterday was just a gist I guess. Also little sad about the fact that the group was dispersed after the breakfast because that is when the fun began in true sense, otherwise it would be way too much fun if all of us together got a little carried away!

This was the my first drive with bhpians and I had a great time driving and meeting people who just talked about cars all the time Sadly I couldn't talk to everyone.I had installed the spider tuning box and bmc filter just a day before the drive and I had a great time pushing the suv to its limits in the first half and decided to be modest and drive with the group till the resort. Thank you Swapnil and the coordinators for organizing this trip,looking forward to the next trip.

Lemme start with a few sample pics - a trailer before the pics from the professionals get uploaded!!
I've hardly taken any pics as it was raining throughout! Here's what I managed! This is en-route to Malshej Ghat and not actually of that place!

I am sorry to point this put, but a two-lane narrow winding road is hardly the place to push a large SUV to its limits, especially when you are driving in a mixed group with a variety of vehicles. A few people who were part of the drive did comment about the Grey Fortuner and trust me the comments weren't about how fantastically "to the limits" it was being driven .

So, without being any more preachy, please take care of this going forward. Just a humble request.

Guys,

Please take care during Team-BHP meets. A Team-BHP meet is not about testing your tuning box or displaying your driving skills. A Team-BHP meet is about getting to know the people you interact with online personally and talk about cars.

Cheers,
Vid

Guys here is a short video I shot during the drive.



Seriously hate myself for shooting it in portrait orientation, had I shot it in landscape it would be much better.

In the end it shows that you were driving with your hazard lights on if I am not wrong, which is a very wrong practise. Please avoid that and use fog lamps instead. Nice video, anyway.

Hey Rohit totally agree with you that it is a wrong practise but the problem was I wasn't sure how powerful my fog lamps were at that moment, and being a black car I did not want to take a risk, as the fog was more than usual.

Though Aman later pointed out that my fog lamps are good enough and that is when I stopped using the hazard lamps.

Hi All,
Great time at the meet. Sorry, had to leave early immediately after lunch due to some urgent work at home.

Below are some snaps from my phone camera (amateurish effort with a defective camera, but, still, though of sharing).

1. Impromptu stop somewhere before Kalyan, waiting for some more people to arrive.

2. View from the Resort towards the highway (with a glimpse of all the resting drives).

Swapnil, Aman and all the co-ordinators on this drive, great job.

Here's to many more of such wonderful experiences.
