What I hated on this journey (Especially while coming back) was the horrible amount of trucks. Since I was on the locomotive on 2 wheels, they hardly gave way and I had to struggle past them everytime. Till Hosur, making the way through the truck traffic was exasperating, with the near-zero acceleration capacity of my buffalo bike.

Absolutely mind-blowing stuff from all of you! Superb photos @Aqualeo, Aviorp and nileshch. I think Sajands is yet to upload his pics. He has taken some amazing photos too in his DSLR. Awaiting the pics from his cam now.

Was fun riding with the RD350 - the only problem was I didn't know when or where he overtook my locomotive . Either he was flying or I was crawling, or both.

Come on guys, what organizing? The only thing I did was I uploaded 3 pictures of my previous visit to this place on page no.230 .

For the record, even Manchanbele dam near Mysore road has a similar kind of setup where you can take the car/bike close to the water, only difference is the place has no mountains like K'giri dam. For those of you who want to do auto mag style photoshoots, thats a closer option.

For the next meet Brraj was suggesting Lepakshi / Horsley hills since that road will not have any traffic at all. Eagerly awaiting the next meet. I have not been to either of the 2 places, and curious to know how they will be.

@H4wk - what are you and superutp upto this weekend, pinning some sponsorship tag and all on me?

Hi All,

Oh boy!!! so much of discussion on me, I feel like a celebrity

1st of all, thanks to Mahesh for letting me piggy back on the RD, boy does she know how to sing, awesome sound of the 350.

@Aditya, more than guts, it was real treat to get an ride on the RD and real good riding by mahesh.

@Karthikk, Loved your T-bird

@Mahesh, Tea bills were on me and next meet, Its on me.

@Avinash, I hope you get the Scorpio ready to respond to the i10's challenge soon......

I wont go about the ride as its been covered in length by all. Highlight of the drive was RD350, A-Star's with its wheel's up in the air, sadly no one captured it on cam, i10's rattling the scorpio on its 4x4 capabilities.

Now, enough talk and here are the pics.........taaaaaddaaaaaaa........

-Sajan

In my case its not the rider but me sitting behind. No practice sitting pillion so its scary for me even at low speeds

And Mahesh calls himself the learner. What about us on our puny machines?

don't look at me - everyone has thanked Karthik for this his organizing skills (and someone mentioned about tea bills) so here we are - official organizer/sponsor


@sajan: where's the macro shot? want to see what you were so patiently shooting

Why isnt the harley in the Krishnagiri pics? Did it belong to a non tbhpian?

Looking forward to participate in meets after my exams. Looks exciting

Karthik, I think everyone knows by now that you are a humble down to earth kinda guy! You've acted more like an adhessive to the gang else we all would have landed up in different locations. Well, ok that may be a little too much. Anyways you have done a good job at whatever you did, period.

Agree with Raj, since both these are on Old madras road, less traffic fighting and recently widened roads. Should have a stress free drive. Bring it on!

Nice pics. btw whos the dude in your 2nd pic? Yeah, throwing one wheel up in the air was a moment! I felt I was in a swamp or something. Was fun though not as much as Raj's rock bashing and hill climbing

Wonder if any of you all took any videos?

Nice pics, Avi! Yeah, the Verna started it all by not giving way on the road. One clean overtaking swoop and he did not attempt to block again

I've been to Lepakshi. Yes, the 15km state highway connecting Lepakshi to NH7 has very less traffic. But the road condition is less than ideal. So the fun of driving to Lepakshi is the fun one can have on NH7. There are some nice green spots to stop on the way, though!

@aditya, I agree with what mahesh says as he is still learning to fly low below radar detection Our machines dont stand a chance against his mighty FZ1 and RD pocket rockets.

@IronH4WK, I was trying to get a macro shot of a skeleton remains of a fish, found lots of dead fishes around the banks of the lake, guessing the water is polluted and has less content of oxygen :(

P.S. Tea bills are on me for the next meet...

@Parthasarathig, the harley was some lone rider who showed up while we were having breakfast, decided to click a snap.

@Glenrox, the dude in the second pic is an non-bhpian, I was trying to focus on the jetta and he showed up, I guess he wanted to say he owns this beauty and has all rights to be in the pic

@sajands and @BulZire - fantastic pictures, top class stuff. Thanks for the locomotive pictures, especially loved the one in black and white. I'll send my email ID in a PM. Do give me the original source images. Would love to preserve these for my collection.

@IronH4wk, superutp - sponsorship aside, when's the next drive planned?? It's been 4 weeks since Nandi hills happened.

@H4wk - nandi hills images please. I didn't get any dropbox notification yet.
