Great meet and pictures guys! Congratulations to the organizers for planning and managing such a large meet despite the monsoon odds.

It seems to have become a habit for me to miss the "meets" regularly. I was in Kolkata from Jan till mid Jun ready to attend a meet and then all of a sudden work calls and I had to take month long visit to my customer's .

Hope the mods will not delete the below as OT and thread hijack!

But wait, while you guys were meeting I decided to do what a BHP'ian could do best at Munich. Yes you guessed it right, I treated myself to a visit to the BMW World and BMW Museum.

So here are some pictures for you all. Enjoy!

There are so many threads on the museum in the forum, including the official trip last year, that I don't think it would be worthwhile opening a new thread and post another bunch of pictures. Do let me know if you want some more pictures, I will upload them here.

My first Team-BHP Kolkata Chapter Meet, and it certainly was a big pleasure meeting so many of you folks there, and managing to put faces to so many names I am familiar with on the forum.

Indeed, it was fabulous and perfect, with your effort and contribution in large measure. Really appreciate the way the meet was organized, the thoughts and untiring effort that went into pulling it off so successfully, and of course, a big to PapaBravo for the excellent T-shirt!

To all organizers as well as Kolkata members: Thanks for coordinating the meet schedule to allow me to drop in and meet some old friends, and make so many new ones.

Thanks a ton, 1100D, for coming all the way to AHD to meet up, though you couldn't make it to Rajarhat. And a special vote of thanks for adc too... you did find the time to drop in at Rajarhat - it's been many years since we last met.

It was really sporting of him to take the time out and drive all the way from Kolaghat on NH 6 towards AHD on NH 2, just so that he could meet up with you.

Re-enforces your legendary stature

The subject line and the meet photos differ. As we see in one of the pictures, Samba's Etios rightly gives the right title to the meet.

Beautiful pictures taken by all the participants and me again the unluckiest one, not to be present in the frame. Its lovely to see new faces and super gurus meet at one place.

All the Thars' looked "ek se bar kar ek". My MM 550 would have looked like an ugly boy in front of the 'Tashan' boys.

Probably only because of the length of your 550 and am not sure how the Thar guys will take to your "Tashan" reference.

I really missed the Azad Hind drive and the kachauri session as Avrendu said. Will make it up during the next meet for sure. Awesome meet and very well organised by PapaBravo. And what to say about Samba's photography, awesome as usual.

An awesome meet. Was great to meet all the members, new and old and enjoy the rains with our vehicles. Aniket and SS Traveler dropping in were a bonus as well. Was really keen to do the AHD leg of the meet but opted for kachoris at City Centre, before heading linking up with Hero Sen for my first experience at Terrain bashing. All in all, a very well spent Sunday for me.

Since 2008 (My first meet), The Kolkata gang has grown by leaps and bounds. What is even better is the high turnouts that we get at these meets with an average of 30 vehicles, at least. Kudos to all Team BHP Kolkata members and I hope the tribe keeps increasing.

Thanks to Pawan for organizing the meet, ordering tees and patiently managing last minute requests and Samba for running around and taking some awesome pics. Hoping for a great Overnight meet, come December.

Regards
Premjit

Hi Avishek,

No doubt there will be a winter meet this year. It usually happens in December. The thread for the same will be started soon. In the meanwhile, you can search for my number in this thread & send me a message.

Namaskar Kolkata members!

Please decide on a winter meet. I want to be part of the gang. Have been waiting for too long. There was no way to communicate with you all, the learned members.
