Wow! That's a big list. Let's finalize on Krishnagiri Dam then. So, meet up around 6AM, so we can avoid the traffic? I think we can catch up before the elevated expressway.

Small change in my ride - after seeing some other bikes in the convoy, I will bringing along my bike this time instead of the T-Jet

KarthikK - RE Thunderbird 350
niranjanrvce - Fiesta / CBR250
floyd.bell - mercedes E220
n_aditya - Ninja
brraj - unknown vehicle with superb power-to-weight ratio. which is it going to be?
nozzlering - Manza
Schoudhury - Ritz
aviorp - Scorpio
BulZire - Lancer
nileshch - Vento
asdon - Punto
hemanth.anand - Punto
_chikku - zen
raj.barcode - i20 / optra

aqualeo2040 - Puntowins2807 - ???

My TB tops out at around 95-100, so this will be more a tortoise and hare story for me. I'll try my best to keep up with you guys, but will be severely crippled and will have to stick to saner confines of 70-80 throughout the golden quadrilateral stretch.

Aviorp is right. 6am sounds good. Let us meet at Silk board junction just before the elevated expressway. The next meeting point can be Kamat for breakfast. Kamat is inside a reliance bunk on your left side, roughly 50km from Silk board junction.

Guys I think the place has less green cover. That is less tree around the dam. (Do correct me if I am wrong)

So if the day is bright, even at 10AM you would be facing the music. Do take that into account as well.
You will have to find a right place to park so that you get good trees around.

If you have important meeting come back by 10am as we are leaving at 6am.

Around 10+car, 5+bikes parking just before the elevated expressway will cause traffic problems i guess, it would be better if its near honda/bmw showroom.

How is the food in kamat compared to A2B/Krishna veg as we should be reaching either of the place by 1hr and there should not be any rush by 7am i guess.

I think A2B is good, we have tried this while going to Yellagiri last time.

Oh please !! dont even think about this place. Shoddy place & stale food. I tried recently during my drive back from Coimbatore.

Stick to A2B/Krishna. At the least you get Fresh Food.

Have a ball !!!

A2B is good. We always stop here for fuel and breakfast on our drives down south.

A2B is good, but will be crowded during weekends. Make sure to be there before 7:30 AM.

btw I will be missing T-BHP meet again this time due to cricket match in office, my team is already down to 9 members and hence they are not allowing me to give a miss to the match. Bad thing is even if we lose one match we still have one more match else I would have joined in between.

Sir ji, to park near Honda / BMW showrooms we must stay down on the main highway, which means we cannot take the expressway above us . What shall we do?

At 6am, there is no need to take the elevated expressway unless you want to donate money to the authorities

The traffic on the regular road (below the elevated toll-way) is sparse at dawn but be cautious since speed camera's are placed on the bottom portion of the flyover to photograph speeding motorists. It flashed at me last time but i guess they got a pic of my lid only.

If expressway is your concern then we should park our cars in service lane which is found immediately after the expressway toll.
