Met Ironhawk & Lavish at Old Madras road and proceeded to the meeting point on Mysore Road (was a good drive).
I could stay only for a short time - was very nice meeting all of you. Thanks for the good time, happy that I can now associate a face to a name (or TBHP handle or both ). In fact some of us were in a dilemma whether to introduce ourselves by name or by handle.

Thanks for this initiative and great organization skills (karthik, silverwood and others), the Thatte Idly shop was a good choice too

Sorry guys, had to return after breakfast to care of some prior commitments, will definitely catch up next time.

Few of the folks I met today are Lavish (was the only one I'd met earlier), IronHawk, Alston, RSudarsanan, rohittunga, arvind, viju, silverwood, asdon, Karthik, mustysekhon, aajohn, denver85, nikhil, and more - would be great if someone can list out the attendees please (even better if you have a team picture from the meet at Ramnagara).

Have a great time at Speedway, Ramnagara!

Sorry guys, I wasn't feeling well since last night and I wasn't confident of riding 100+ kms. I backed out at the last moment, sorry again. Will join next time for sure.

Hope you guys had a great time.

Rules from speedway (count was debated) and there were some more written ones that made good reading.

My first Team BHP meet. Had lot of fun. An awesome gang to hang out with.

First things first. Sincere apologies to Waseem sir for missing lunch!! I stupidly did not ask for directions in advance and followed the gang heading back to Bangalore only to realise a good 10 km later that I was headed in the wrong direction! Really sorry for the goof up.

Seeing the amount of mud I brought into the house, wifey pretty much understood what I had been upto. I wish at least one more biker had joined in. After a while, was feeling a bit lonely (?) on the bike.

More from my side later. Every bone in my body is aching! Looking forward to the pictures.

KarthikK, fantastic effort man!

Last time we had around 10. Either the heat is getting the better of our biker boys, or you just got plain unlucky.

Even Karthik had plans of coming in bike, but he just had to show off his new gloss black alloys.

Big thanks to KarthikK, Diesel_convert and SILVERWOOD for organising the meet, and personally- thanks to Diesel_convert and rohittunga for helping me with the routes to and from the venue.

No photos yet!!!

Returned home right now and was expecting some photos.
Not finding anything means I can expect some amazing post processed photos

KarthikK's sms tempted me but it was really hard to squeeze in another program along with other things.

Delighted to meet all of you who made it to the Meet and thereby also making it worth the while of the organisers who deserve kudos for their time and effort. We should meet again before the faces to names/handles begin to blur.
So until next time, ciao

Thanks to everyone who participated in the meet, including family members who could make it yesterday. It was great to meet lots of new faces who were coming for the first time.

We left Bangalore around 7.30 AM, stopped for breakfast at Bidadi for some delicious Thatte Idlis and proceeded to speedway for the karting and ATV rides. BHPians just could not keep their hands off the karts, and we ended up hogging the place for a good 4 hours.

On behalf of team-bhp, I thank Mr. Srinivas, the owner of Speedway, for making time to be with us all and coordinating the whole event superbly.

Thanks also to Diesel_convert for the superb breakfast arrangements, and to Waseem sir (SILVERWOOD) for organizing the superb lunch and the help through the whole event.

After a delicious lunch at Taj Biriyani paradise, we headed homewards for a good evening's rest. I lost most of you at Mysore road. As with all meets, IronH4wk and myself were left behind, sedately driving back to the city at snail's pace.

Here are the first set of pictures from my side :

Most of the pictures were taken by Aviorp (avinash) while he was holding my camera for me. All credit for the pictures goes to him . I have another 30-40 pictures to be uploaded, will get those up by tonight. Eagerly waiting for official photographer alston's and other BHPian's pictures now! Out with it!

Hey KarthikK, nice pictures there. Couple of corrections - first picture is mine (may be you meant me). And the picture you have mentioned as of aajohn is infact Nikhil (PC77's friend).
