Wow! I just loved the tsi and vrs face off photograph. Wish skoda could have really given us a 'true' vrs that robi's tsi now is. Not that the vrs isnt a kicker. I'm sure azeem has picked up exactly what needs to be modded next

Only two Lauras could make it. One was the stock vRS, the other was Robi's sweetly modded, Tarmac tearing - 300 BHP ride

Long time, no meet . Its been 2 months since the Muthathi / Chunchi falls drive.

Any plans for this Saturday/Sunday? Daytime preferred.

I would like to join in if that's ok with you guys. It's been a while since I did a long one on my Yezdi and the weather is just right for that.

Thank me for it . We managed to give the H4wkmobile's shock absorbers some exercise. They are otherwise never used on your silky-smooth IRR / EC commute anyway, on regular days .

P.S - what's with the new avatar picture? It doesn't suit you. The blue one used to send shivers down the spines of people *lol*. This is a little comical. Not good.

Shishir was asking about a drive to Hessarghatta grasslands this Saturday. Depending on the availability of the members, we can make it Saturday or Sunday.

What say?

Sounds good , but it isn't much of a drive, distance wise, is it? I'm game this weekend or next.

Unless someone's been there recently and can confirm that there's stuff to do, I would stay away from Hesarghatta for a while. Thousands of birds were culled on account of bird flu recently and I wouldn't want to be anywhere near any of that. I remember reading an article about BBMP having cordoned off a 10km area just for this. This happened a month or two ago and things may have gone back to normal, not sure. Besides, when I visited in May, the lake was DRY and locals told me that it has been that way for a few years now. Photographers go there for the migratory birds.

If I may suggest a couple of places :

1. When I'm after peace and quiet; I drive down to the Ayurveda institute(s) near CRPF Yelahanka. The first left after the point in the map. There are lot of instituites/nurseries/hospitals that grow medicinal plants and use them to cure their patients. No traffic, no horns and eucalyptus trees all around. 6 km from CRPF and back. The only set back to this is that, there's a BBMP designated garbage dumping ground after these institutes. Every now and then a loaded truck will go past leaving a bit of stink. Despite this, it's a great place to visit.

2. A trek up Skandagiri/Kalavarahalli betta is also worth considering. This will be a midnight to noon affair and November is the perfect time to visit. 70 km from the city. I've been there once. Get there by 1 AM. Hire a local guide for ~ 500, who'll take us up the safest route to the top that is enveloped in fog and low lying clouds. Have a few beverages(tea & noodles are sold by villagers at the top), witness sunrise and start back at 8 AM. Link 1 (Trek to the clouds : SKANDAGIRI) Link 2 (Skandagiri trek photologue)
