While cars enjoyed the photoshoots, the bikers had a good go too. Got a chance to meet few new members @added_Flavor,@karthikk,@nirajan, etc.
It was a good start for the weekend. Weather was too good on the top. I might have some bikers pics. Will upload it soon.

Looks like you guys had an amazing meet.
I was being egged on to clean them today as well. Somehow i managed to resist the temptation

Yes it was a great meet. Totally worth the last minute battle at home

Dude, subscribe to this thread so that you dont miss it next time.

All in all, it was a great meet and drive. The wide empty roads were a sight for sore eyes. Somehow Nandi Hills always gets a nice turnout.

Apologies about back to back posts but my edit window expired.

BRRaj's Optra deserves a special mention. That car is a monster of a rocket. But equal credit goes to the driver of the car as well. Put him in an i10 and even that will acquire some ferocity!

And thanks to Kaushik for reminding us just what a Baleno is capable of.

It was good to see some young blood as well, like Niranjan's 1.6 Fiesta, KarthikK's TJet, Royalcruiser's Punto, BulZire's Dzire and Figo's Figo

And I had no idea the bikes were going to be so many in number!! But hats off to their well disciplined riding.

You should've listened to me and cleaned them. Would've looked even better :P

Yeah man, the road after BIAL was awesome. Suddenly a wide empty long stretch. That was fun.

Geez, wonder what hit you guys after crossing the airport! I was only faintly aware of Raj's Optra whizzing past, Kaushik, Amitoj were already way ahead - At least it helped me test the straight line high speed stability of the Punto

Thanks for a wonderful meet guys!
The drive from the airport right upto the top was splendid. Amitoj's OHC sings a really nice tune when on fire! And of course, Raj's Magnum is in a class of its own. Had a tough time keeping up with these two.
Also, Kaushik, you better put up the photos this time at least.

Oh I loved that empty stretch too!
You were always ahead of me inspite of me ripping at high speed, so don't call it a slow baleno anymore

To All about the slow Baleno, "mein toh majak kar raha tha" (in that orient PSPO style)
Just woke up and will be posting some of the pics soon.

BTW, loved your Harley Sridhar. Seriously, it was love at first sight. Hope that someday.

This ride was out of this world!!!It couldn have been more memorable.It was a pleasure meeting you sir.Hope we meet soon.

I've become a fan of JVH.He was so humble for a man who rides a Monster!!!!Instant respect!!It was a pleasure meeting you too sir!!!As i said,my dreams of seeing a Ducati screaming past me has been fulfilled.

Loved Aditya's passion for bikes.So technical and so precise.I hope to go on more rides with him in the future!!!

Lastly i want to thank everyone for making this ride most memorable for me!!!

@car drivers, you will remember my parking in a different spot at the top and missing you guys on the departure

My 'Dimag ki batti jalaa de' stupid moment - I took out the car and started from the top, came across a fork and was trying to use mapmyindia gps navigator to find the correct path down to the entrance *lol* I wonder what was wrong with me today morning!

I was actually standing where you guys had parked on NH7 just before you took the turn for Nandi. Din't know anyone of you and din't know its a TBhp meet till I actually saw all your Tbhp stickers once you guys started and went ahead of me.

The optra had sparks flying off it when it took off!!

Were you 2 guys - one in a red and black jacket, another in a blue and black jacket? I vaguely remember 2 guys looking at us at that turning Didn't observe closely else I would have spotted your TN registration

Yep that would be me and my friend. I had a hunch its you guys, but then I dint see any stickers in the front so I assumed that my hunch was wrong!

We waited for you at the exit for more than 10 mins and then decided that you've somehow sneaked passed us (or may be taking rounds of Nandi Hills Top )..

Anyway, here are the photos from my side,






Waiting and shooting..

Niranjan: Hmmmm still something can be done to make it faster,

Niranjan: Let's swap the engines and then see

Leading from the front as always,

Waiting for the T-jet which was taking rounds at the hill top,
