And where are the other Bangalore boys? No one is replying? Dreamcatcher, are you in for the Sunday morning plan? Ace, Libran, BRRaj, IronHawk, etc etc anyone??
I think KiloAlpha is in his office right now, so he should be able to see the update. Otherwise if anyone has his number, please pm me so that i can update him.

Kaushik, since you've been to that place, can you suggest what will be the right time and place to meet up?
As for me, i will be taking the NICE road from Bannerghatta road to Tumkur road.

And I have to do something about Ikka
I have time till Sunday morning to hatch a plan for him. huuaahahahaha.

I just got off call with none other than D-bhpian Amitoj bhai himself!
And, he has agreed a treat to the bhpians present on the Sunday drive!! (taaliyan)

He says, its to all the meets he couldn't make, and reinforcing the spirit of our drives!
(wah- what inspirational thoughts, I tell you..)

So, be there!

Who all are in?

Ace.

~Insaniyat abhi bhi jinda hai!
That's a great news. There is a CCD enroute, the same one we planned last to last weekend which got dumped

Yup, NICE road is the best option and I'll also take the same. So I guess we can meet near your place.
There are two routes, one that's directly from Tumkur, basically you need to take the turn for Siddaganga Mutt. Other one is via Dobbaspete. Both roads are in good shape if I remember correctly. It shouldn't take more than 1.5 hours to reach there. So I think we can start by 5/5.30am around?

From where are you coming? As it's morning time we can meet near Amitoj's place (Just after Meenaxi Temple/Royal Meenaxi Mall) for the people who can come towards this side(south Bangalore. What say amitoj?
Other rendezvous point can be NICE/Tumkur road junction.

Confirmed list for Sunday morning drive,
1. Amitoj
2. Kaushik_s
3. _chikku
4. ITNerd
5. Driverace
6. KiloAlpha

Alright!
Yes we can meet up near to my place.
What time would be ideal so that we can catch the sunrise, if possible?

Considering the current weather condition and the fact that we should do more than just drive, I propose (and Kaushik_s already agrees with me) that we do an early Sunday morning drive and photo shoot to Devarayanadurga hills.
This place is the less popular brother of Nandi Hills but supposed to be more scenic and its on the way to Tumkur. So you get to taste some good roads too i believe.
Now I hope this is sufficient notice for all those who had agreed for the drive tonight! *please*

So who all are in?
Sorry guys, would not be able to join on Sunday.

I am riding to the same place tomorrow morning . Anyone else interested in riding along can join in front of Shell Station near Metro at 5:30 am.

Sunrise will be around 5.57am. You want to catch the sunrise at DDurga? In that case we'll have to start by 4.00am.

Thats fine with me, if its worth it.
I was thinking that if 4AM is too early for those not interested in shooting the sunrise, they can form a second group and meet up later at say 6AM. I think we would still be there by the time the second group reaches.
Then we all can head back together.

Also, those who are in, please PM me your numbers so that we can coordinate.

Considering the current weather condition we might not even see the Sun rising .. But yeah, 4am start would be good if we want to catch the Sunrise. But going in two groups might not be a very good idea. But anyway, let;s see what people are more comfortable for.

I am fine with what the majority decides - 4.00 AM or 6.00 AM. Also please confirm the meeting venue - Royal Meenakshi Mall?

I've never attended Team-BHP meets... would have loved to join in for this drive.. unfortunately for me though, I just got my brand new Linea T-Jet delivered yesterday and I'm not too sure about highway jaunts during the run-in period (since driving at constant rpm is a no-no)

I'd definitely like to keep a watch on this thread and catch up with BHPians in the next meet

Karthik! Please do make it to the meet. Highway drives are a good option to run in your car. You need to stretch your car's legs to get a good running in, which you can't do driving it in a city like Bangalore.
And i am dying to see a linea tjet in action. Its the only car right now in the market on which i am willing to put my hard earned money.
