Oh well, between them, they took enough pictures for all of them,so no problems there..

sajjit,dhanushmenon, alex and Sunney sir were sorely missed, I hope to meet them next time.

come on jose and antonian, post the pictures soon!!
I thought i would say something about it once jose/antonian posts the pics;

It was a very nice time I had today and honestly I was looking forward for this meet the whole of last week. Its not everyday you get to meet these many (7 is good enough) petrolheads in a single place.

When i got there Skyline was staring at the Etios display there. Poor soul was waiting for us for almost half an hour. We were joined by the others.

Yes Dhanush, sunney, sajjt were missed. We were 7 but would have been better with 10 people. More the merrier.

Even i forgot the camera, I had infact kept it ready and then forgotten in the last minute run.

You know what was fun ? We all knew the names on tbhp but it was difficult for us to call out our real life names. We continued calling the tbhp names because that was what we were familiar with.

Agreed to meet very soon for a quick lunch meet and also organize a weekend outing.

Jose.. Please post the pics

Thanks for the pics Jose and for the intro Vineeth. Was good meeting you all. Had a great time together. Missed meeting Dhanush, Sajan and Sunney sir. Hope to meet you all soon.

Guess the only thing missed here was the car pics. Too bad we couldnt click them. Hope we can line up our cars for the next meet.

Waiting to meet you all next time. Thanks for taking time and organizing the meet.

Cheers.!

I am very sorry guys. I couldn't make it to the meet yesterday. I am still stuck up. Will return only by morning tomorrow.

The more i go through the thread and snaps, the more i miss being there. I do sincerely hope that I'll make amends to this in the next meet.

+1 to that. Thanks for the wonderful pics and intro. The meet was fun. Lets plan a drive as well. It would be nice spending a day with like minded people !! I am sure we will have a lot of things to discuss.

And yes, next time i hope to meet at least 10 bhpians.

Hi all,

So that was one of the successful longest quick meets with more members.

Sorry guys I couldn't make it, some urgent work made me to stay at work.

Surely I missed you all especially the new friends Next time definitely meet you all in person in detail.

The only thing which console me that, am not the only one who missed it

Sunney sir, lets make the next meet a mega event.

Jose, nice work as usual but would love to have a split up job from Rajesh as well rather than posting all in one shot. It will give more life to the thread.

Guys the meeting went completely out of my mind.

Took my Fiesta for service on Saturday morning. Was visiting some of the cycle stoers in Cochin until afternoon. Went back home, had lunch and the son was in a mood to play with me, we played a lot and he went to sleep by around 3 pm. I went back to Kairali and got the car in spic and span condition. Went to visit my parents and that’s it. Completely forgot the meet. Stupid me , sorry guys, will make it for the next one.

Prashob is a colleague, so will ask him to remind me next time.

I always thought Basil had some prior engagement cos he never marked the timings for the meet that he was comfortable with.

@basilmabraham Next time you are coming. I will remind you.
No forgetting allowed

Still going through the chat we had over and over. I am planning a DIY for sound reduction. Got some inputs for that as well. Thank you guys

More on that when we meet the next time.

Hey,

C'mon man, you have to respect others privileges as its a voluntary call. Inconveniences can happen at any point of time and some day if you do the same also I will not drag like this.

Also, admitting the courage of making such a statement against a person whom you've never met

Attendance is voluntary for sure. No doubts at all.
Basil is a friend and colleague and my statements were in jest.

Oh and the Prashob mentioned in the post is figo_mba that me

Cheers!! Looking forward to meet you as well next time....

Hi,

It was good to meet you all.

Cheers to aBAD Food Court which is actually good! The crowd was reasonable with enough free tables to re-arrange for our convenience.

Next time we should try to find a place where we can line up our rides as well.

Sorry that i had to leave earlier. My friends were supposed to get together (one of them has bought a HD 48 from B'lore) but nothing worked out due to rains & i ended up at the usual watering hole cursing myself for not spending more time with you guys.

+1 to that. I enjoyed the Abad food Court too. nice place to have long meets!!
Lets head towards an open ground or something next time, where, weather permitting, we can have a photoshoot of all our cars withs jose's and antonian's fancy cameras..

Thanks guys for remembering me as 'missed face' in the 18th Meet.
I am sure missed an opportunity to befriend with many young, new faces !
Happy to see our numbers bulging.

At the time when you people were having brotherhood, I was speeding from Badami (Cave sculptures, a UNESCO heritage site in Karnataka) to Bangalore.

Hope to meet you in next meet(preferably not in 30th June, 1,2 July- again out f Kerala).
