Had a very nice meet. An amazing group to hang out !!!
Kudos to Karthik, Waseem and Jayanth for the excellent planning. The breakfast and lunch were really awesome.
About Speedway: The ‘Speedway’ is a very nice facility, located not so far from Bangalore. I have tried my hands on ATV and loved the excellent off-road terrain they have. The most fun part was sitting the open/rear part of Mustysekhon’s gypsy and doing a fast lap on this track Great experience !!!!
Adding some photos from my humble/simple P&S cam:

Reached the first meeting point a little early at 6.45 AM.

Once we left Speedway on the way to the restaurant, my daughter was crying hysterically. Cancelled lunch plan and headed off straight home. All in all it was a fun event! Thanks to all who put in efforts for making the event a successful one. Let's do another one soon! Cheers!

Hi all,

What an amazing sunday! Especially when you consider you are meeting these folks for the first time ever- and you have never spoke, not even a pm!

I missed the meeting spot, and i had breakfast alone at bidadi barely half a km before where the rest of bhpians were having breakfast

But yes since then it was an awesome fun event thanks to karthikk who made sure everyone was comfortable.

ATV was weird- for every biker there you just cant lean into the corners, you need to turn!

Karting was awesome and yes the karts were fairly fast, well maintained and the track was interesting( uphill,downhill,tight turns, blind turns). Recommended!

thanks to silverwood there was a sumptuous lunch at taj. Recommended again!

Headed back having met some really fun folks who share your same passion and thoughts. Looking forward to another mini meet soon!

Special thanks to astonlobo for so many pics mate! thanks for some really nice fb cover/profile pic grade pics!


PS:for the group pic i hope i have got the members right,

Standing L-R, -keyank, Mrs.Astonlobo, nkrishnap, Mrs.nkrishnap, sidhu, diesel_convert, denver, vidyanand, ironh4wk, lavish_n, astonlobo, mustysekhon, ( ), crazy driver, silverwood

Sitting L-R, -sai_ace, aajohn, d3mon, asdon,viju, pc77, ikoner, ( ), aviorp, karthikk, rohittunga, mashmash, ( )

Apologies for those whose names i dont recall or if i have messed up someones name..

I'm you have some photos of your hooter that with such a background would make me repent further about not attending the meet?

I definitely expected those panning shots from alstonlobo
Very nice pictures buddy

Mods: I feel that this meet needs a separate thread. please do the needful if you feel its justified

OMG!! What all I've missed

I knew I wouldn't be able to attend due to some prior commitments. Was quietly following the thread to see the meet planning in progress.
Consoled myself thinking that it would be OK to miss it considering the summer heat is too much now-a-days.
But now after seeing all the fun, I am like:

Moral of the Story: Never miss a Team-BHP Meet !!
