Im hitting the highways next wednesday and will be away from home for 5 days , and if i again tell them that i will not @ home on sunday also , then you can understand what will happen to me.

But yes, as Karthik plans i can also come to the destination and then drive back.
Bdw where is this place and how long does it take to reach there .

Tried, tested and failed. The manager was a tough nut to crack, so the staying back during appraisal time doesn't work on him. Need to think of other ideas.

I live in Banashankari 2nd stage, so I can come to RR Nagar and pick you up. Easy-peasy

BTW, is this a "boys only" type meet or is it a family type meet?

Thanks KiloAlpha. Sure we can work out a meeting place.

What is the plan guys? What time are we supposed to leave? Madhugiri is around 110 kms from my place.

Would CCD Tumkur road be a good place to meet and start from ? As per Gmaps, it is a part of HPCL and has McDonalds as well. I'm hoping that they can accommodate a few cars and bikes. Note: It's accessible via the service road.

As per these Review1 Review2, 9 AM should be a good time to start at. I'll leave it those who've been there before to decide.

How about a hammer

Back to the topic, what's the plan like? I have many things to attend to on both the days the days. but they are after 10AM.
If you guys plan for breakfast at CCD/McD, I'll join you for that and return back after flagging you off to Madhugiri.
Its been a while since I attended a TBHP meet

@hemanth- yeah i'll get free meals and free accommodation after that, permanently

guys, I might not be able to make it to Madhugiri since I need to get back a little early. I will meet you guys, spend a little time and flag you off from the Tumkur road NICE exit (can try capturing the flag-off and convoy departure on video )

What time are you guys leaving?

@vinu_h/aviorp - is this place on Tumkur road route or do we reach via Devanahalli (Bellary road)??

If its via airport road, meeting point can be opposite Columbia Asia hospital (there's space to park cars there). If via Tumkur road, the cars can assemble at the NICE exit (after toll gate, before passing out of NICE onto Tumkur road)

PS - brraj is silently watching this thread on the sidelines *lol*. He'll show up directly tomorrow, count him in too.

If you'll be using the NICE road to get there then, 200m from the NICE road Tumkur exit where both roads meet will be ideal. Those joining us from North Bangalore, please advise if this ok. I honestly don't know if there's a CCD or MCD close to that.

Does 9 AM sound reasonable ? Have attached a pic.

Karthik and Avi, Madhugiri is quiet tough for me as i have to return back atleast by 12 to get some bank work done.

Carry on, will catch up in the next meet. Drive safe and enjoy the place. come back with lots of pics and videos.

I live in Banshankari too. So, Karthik and I might come together. So, you can depend on either of us, just in case one doesn't show up.

Will I be the only one if I brought along my Yezdi ? If yes then, I'll get the SX4 instead. I live in Jayanagar and will have to pick up a friend who'll be joining from Hebbal/Yesvantpur.

The one just after NICE road exit might be a good place to meet since we'll have to go past it anyway.

Checklist :

1. Lots of drinking water.
2. Shoes/Boots suitable for mountain climbing.
3. Umbrella / Cap / Sun glasses (Not sure what the weather will be like)
4. Biscuits/chocolates.

guys, bad weather is expected this weekend according to the met department. Make sure you carry proper rain protection too.

9am meeting time? Isn't that a bit too late for you guys to start off from here? You'll reach only by 12 noon, start the climb, come back by 3-4 and again take 3 more hours to reach B'lore. My suggestion is to start off earlier, maybe around 7am or so, have breakfast at Aggarwal's or Kamat on Tumkur road, carry something to eat up on the hill also. Have your lunch on the top, get back here by dusk. The toll gate car queues on Tumkur road can stretch quite a long way on sunday evenings *lol*.

Updating :

1. KiloAlpha - Figo (AlphaKilo is another member's handle, hehe. KiloAlpha won't be too happy if you mix up)
2. aviorp - Scorpio
3. addyhemmige (with me or alpha)
4. karthikK - Punto / T-Jet (depends on how much fuel I have left in the T-Jet )
5. Shishirbn - Xylo
6. Vinu - sx4
7. rksans - CBR250R / i10
8. guyfrmblr - i20
9. hemant.anand - Punto
10. d3mon - Swift
