With the reports flowing in, I understand that I have missed an epic meet! At 10:00 on 2-Jun, I couldn't help feel a little sad to know that while I was in TVM, the drive had started in EKLM. Glad to know all who joined in the meet, had a great time. I hope there will surely be a 'next time' -- SOON -- for me & family to join in.

Please convey a special thanks to all the family members who joined in despite the rain. Their support is inevitable towards the success of this meet.

Hey Guys,

I was enjoying the posts and pics from all before deciding to post my feedback.

Starting from the rain drive with revintup, meeting the convoy in Arthunkal, convoy drive to Marari and the moments in the beach; so happy to say we enjoyed the day to fullest. Driving with small kids is not so easy but we decided to keep them for all possible drives to ensure grow up as Junior BHPians and let them drive us around in our old age .

My wifey believes the theme of our ride was Inclusiveness; yes she never expected the drive with motor maniacs would turn so lovely. Yes we were really inclusive, we had ladies, kids and a cute doggy too. Special thanks to all who made it to this event and all our beloved well wishers.


Let me not duplicate the already posted snaps and also I did not manage to click many; here are few snaps to complete the story.

As we assembled near Arthunkal Church. Mistaken guy looks lost in thought!

Yes, I hardly had time to interact with anyone - commitments in the morning and a long drive back to Palakkad meant that I had time only to show my face and say hi!! Looking forward to the overnight meet now

Here goes my set of pic - jacs & revintup are bringing up the story, so I'll spare my part of the words!!

Convoy to Marari entering the destination

Well destination is "A BAD TURTLE BEACH". Special thanks to Mrs & Mr Naveen for owning the arrangements here

Drive way to reception had a beautiful bridge. No need to explain why Suzuki lives happy in India.

As we reached the reception, parking 15 rides is not that easy.

While TBHP dominated the complete parking area and the space around the reception block.

Birthday boy himself takes a closer look through his microscope to ensure no "Dengue" germs are active on the cake! See how many lenses are active around him including the man behind this cam?

Nice pictures guys, keep them coming. Very glad to be part of a lovely meet!

The rain, the coastal roads, the beautiful resort, the private beach and a bunch of joyful BHPians with their steeds and family made it truly special. It was a great decision to ditch the highway. I had a rather boring drive on the way back.

We should definitely do it more often. Vagamon beckons!

PS: Now, I know the best spot in the convoy. Just in front of jacs' big brown behemoth!

And I am sure you know the worst spot in the convoy. Just in front of Sree's White Lady

Sree : No offense. Just kidding.

Now I am scared to drive behind deet's swiftey; not sure where the magnetism is. Better get the rear bumpers removed and checked if there is some Bermuda triangle hidden there

No worries guys. Being in front of jacs' Behemoth will ensure that your ride is going to get featured in a lot of good photographs. That's all I meant.

And going getting a new bumper pretty soon.

Too bad I work on saturdays

But do me a favour guys. Gift him a My shaldan or Areon and make sure he sticks it on the dash. Should go a long way in pleasing his higher ups at Godrej and ensuring his job does not come in the way of future meets
