Extremely sorry for the slip-up. I mistook your handle Viju for Vinu_h (another BHPian who attends Bangalore meets), and Nikhil for aajohn. I will report my post to the mods and get it corrected.

EDIT : reported corrections should be in place soon.

Thanks Karthik for the starter snaps, it was indeed real fun riding the ATV and I got addicted to it after the 1st lap, looking forward to another one soon. It was really nice to meet so many BHPians after a long time and almost 20+ cars for a quick meet is a big thing. Every thing was in place from breakfast till lunch... lokking forward to see the snaps from all camera gurus. I lost most of you on Mysore road as I was speeding little bit and waited for Vidyanand at NICE road entry so that he does not miss it, was at home by 3:40pm. I will upload few snaps from my end by EOD today..

These meets are getting better by the month! My second meet already and this time had brought wifey and our baby along to join in the fun! Unfortunately reached late for breakfast and could not attend lunch since my daughter was crying non-stop once we left Speedway! Clicked loads of pics (400+ to be precise ). Will upload when I get the chance (sometime today for sure). More in my next post!

Hi Alstonlobo, do appreciate your (more your wifey's!) spirit in bringing along the little one! She is really tough to have withstood that heat (and turned all red!) without much complaints. I know this, since my little girl is now 16 months old.

Have told my wife. If the next meet is also open to families, I am pretty sure my ladies would also be there! Looking forward to your pictures.

First of all, Thanks to all the organisers for their effort in making a really funfilled and exciting meet. This was my first Team-BHP meet and I loved it. It was great to meet the team members in person (until now it was just the pics of your rides).
Thanks to asdon for waiting for me even though you were far ahead of me in the Mysore road traffic.

Thumbs up Re: Quick Meets at Bangalore

Hey, that was a great meet. Big shout out too all the organizers, especially Karthik.
Karthik: Since I do not have the permissions to use PM feature, I'd appreciate if you can drop me a mail to the contact mentioned on my profile page. There was a small mess up from my side, had to leave a little early.My apologies.

More than the karts, I enjoyed watching the gypsy being off-roaded. Wow, I still remember the climax part of the lap. A couple of bhpians who were on board on the gypsy knows what am talking about. Wish there were more half tickets accompanying the revv heads!Looking forward to more meets, am sure we can plan one during May, considering the summer vacations our juniors would have.

Hehe yeah, the gloss black alloys were not even a day old, so they had to be shown off. Ironically, we didn't have a vehicle photo session at all. Either everyone forgot about it, or people were just too hungry after go-karting to think of anything else .

Actually the reason I didn't get the Thunderbird yesterday was because of the cursed Royal Enfield service centre. I had given my bike for service on Friday morning (in preparation for this Sunday meet), but they failed to keep up the return date and time. I ended up picking up the bike only today morning, thanks to their lethargic approach in fixing the niggles and minor issues I had reported. Idiots really!

Yeah. I'm wondering if they are doing some 'fair and lovely' type photoshop work to enhance their looks in the photos . Looks like I am still the only guy who has posted photos as of now. What are you others doing folks??

KarthikK's sms tempted me but it was really hard to squeeze in another program along with other things.
As I was saying in the sms, I was planning to take both Abarth Puntos onto the karting track for a small photoshoot. The 2 Abarths (white+red and red+black) with the tyre walls and chicanes on the racetrack would have looked electrifying - perfect racetrack-ish photo background for the race-bred Abarth brand, hehe.

We'll do it some other time when you are free, anyway this place is not very far off.

What happened to the photos on the camera's memory card? Don't tell me you did a cut-paste from the camera card onto your computer *lol*.

apart from karting and dirting, there were few interesting discussions during the meet, one of which was at lunch... it was off topic but very interesting.. BTW it was related to income tax/ car lease/ and HR policies

+1

Mustysekhon was in full flow in his Gypsy. Even the Speedway staff was like

Overall it was well organised. Thanks to all the people who attended with friends & family members. Special thanks to Karthik, Waseem & Jayanth to making this meet possible.

Next meet with Paintball??
