The Biggest TBHP meet I've been part of!
26 Cars and 4 Motorcycles!

First of all Thanks to KarthikK for sparking this off...as usual

I couldn't wake up in time for the breakfast so joined the group directly at the Reservoir.

Just after I reached the dam, but couldn't see any cars. I called KarthikK and realized that they were on the opposite side.

On top of the dam...

As soon as I arrived I could see the whole line up

Attendance

After the Initial hand shakes with known faces, I just clicked a few snaps here and there

German and Italian

Then we all lined up our cars...a Lineup so big that getting in one frame was not easy

All but one

Every camera equipment got busy

I went a little farther and captured the vehicles and the people in one frame

All in one

Then came luvurride with his LUV and that took the count of the day to 30 vehicles

The final line-up

To wrap it up, every one had a round of introduction for some 20 minutes and Sidhu_bangalore officially closed the meet by thanking everyone. It was indeed a quick meet!

Now for some accidents!!!

sunniboi's beautiful yellow palio S10 was rear ended by an auto in the morning while he was on his way to the meet.

Quick Meets at Bangalore-dsc_2825.jpg
A Sad picture this

And the two wheelers were not spared either.
Today no one looked interested to go back soon. So everyone were having discussions with every other guy.
No on were looking at the vehicles. So Tharian's Bullet decided to get up close and personal with unk9ja's 390
Since it was a lake bed, the ground was moist. after all this time around 1 hour, the bullet's stand slowly sunk into the ground and fell on the Duke.

Everyone rushed and held the duke from falling to the ground. but the bullet's weight did a small damage to the Duke.

Quick Meets at Bangalore-dsc_2846.jpg
Luckily this part is a sticker

After this, slowly everyone started to leave the scene. KarthikK and I hung on for the Abarths Photo shoot. This was the first time the Abarths met in some 4 meets of which KarthikK and I were part of.

Its Picture time...

KarthikK then left for a Go-karting session while I tried some macros with the reverse lens mounting. But without a tripod, I could get better ones

We must have stepped on thousands of such flowers

Brought some of these back as mementos

The only car I met on my way back was soumyajit9's green Beat.

A nice first half of the Sunday finally came to an end at 12:30PM when I reached my home

Thanks to everyone.

This is something we surely missed. Where is this?

Anyway it was good fun meeting so many BHPians albeit for a short while. Wish I was able to go to the dam area and get to know all the guys well. Thanks a lot to Karthik and the others who took the initiative.

It was sure hard to get such a large group in one frame. But Krishna (nkrishnap) did manage to click a couple of images from the high vantage point.

Waiting for the result of this effort (with the handles tagged)

Alrighte, here comes my set of pics. Please don't kill me for being over obsessed with my Beat.
First of all, thanks a ton Karthikk for getting us to the Thatte Idlis. Me and my wife enjoyed it a lot !!
It was nice meeting each one of you. Although I don't remember each one of your names, but I can remember a face to the handle. This being my 2nd meet, I met some familiar faces and some new ones.
Add to it, I had my wife and just born kid also, which made it more special !!

Guru's hotel definitely did a rocking business today !! The group, scattered though.

And there were millions of these:

My little BHPian kid was fast asleep till we reached the riverbed:

Quick Meets at Bangalore-img_4033.jpg

And then he woke up and got super excited so see so many cars and bright sun and cool breeze !!

And after everyone left, I had some nice photosession with family. Thanks to luvurride for taking the family pic. Thanks sandsun7 for the family pic also.

Truly Your's with Family:

Quick Meets at Bangalore-img_4069.jpg

While finally leaving the riverbed, suddenly I notice a white and a red car far far away and two guys discussing something. Now I know what Hemanth and Karthik were upto !!

Default Photos from Quick Meets on Sept 29

So here is a brief summary and few snaps from my side.

At around 5.50am, i lined up at the NICE road entry after paying toll on the bannerghatta road and clicked checked if the roads are clear for the convoy
Quick Meets at Bangalore-_mg_6792.jpg
Quick Meets at Bangalore-_mg_6795.jpg
Quick Meets at Bangalore-_mg_6799.jpg

And then we have our south bangaloreans lining up to start from NICE road -
Quick Meets at Bangalore-_mg_6790.jpg

And then our leader Karthik led us to our formal meeting point on mysore road -
Quick Meets at Bangalore-_mg_6810.jpg

And the lineup is building fast -
Quick Meets at Bangalore-_mg_6813.jpg

Everyone stopping for a casual hello! There is a detailed intro session planned at the meetup destination already, but we wont wait till then!
Quick Meets at Bangalore-_mg_6816.jpg

And to capture the lineup, i had to go further head and stand on the median to cover everyone!
Quick Meets at Bangalore-_mg_6846.jpg

Oh by the way, this was a meeting point for some bikers, not part of our convoy though -
Quick Meets at Bangalore-_mg_6869.jpg

When we started moving towards the breakfast point, i followed our RSudarshan sir's famous BMW. For records, call it first sticker snap!
Quick Meets at Bangalore-_mg_6890.jpg

Hey by the way, you know the mysore road speed breakers can't dampen our spirits when we have our moderator n_aditya making our spirits fly along with his ninja -
Quick Meets at Bangalore-_mg_6892.jpg

When we took our breakfast stop, we met junior Soumyajit (Soumyajit9) greeting us - he was by the way the expert of all. Ask him anything about auto and he answers with a smile! Here is the trainer and and trainee -
Quick Meets at Bangalore-_mg_6897.jpg

Thanks to KarthikK again, we enjoyed the thatte idli and the hot coffee -
Quick Meets at Bangalore-_mg_6901.jpg

And i actually noticed that we have more cars in our convoy than this express train has bogies to it!
Quick Meets at Bangalore-_mg_6906.jpg

When we moved on from the idli joint, on the way Ganesha procession with a nice idol. Couldn't take a good picture unfortunately.
Quick Meets at Bangalore-_mg_6918.jpg

And finally when we reached our designated turn on mysore road to reservoir, we again lined up to see if everyone has made it safe -
Quick Meets at Bangalore-_mg_6923.jpg

And there comes our leader in his signature abarth punto -
Quick Meets at Bangalore-_mg_6931.jpg

When we reach on the reservoir bed, everyone starts parking -

When my daughter saw the open grounds, it was no bound to her joy - the actions tell the feelings -
Quick Meets at Bangalore-_mg_6958.jpg

And when she settled, gave me a pose to click -

Quick Meets at Bangalore-_mg_7089.jpg

And just then luvurride and his Ertiga arrived. Better late than never!
Quick Meets at Bangalore-_mg_7109.jpg

I left as soon as photshoot and intros were over. The photos i took from the banks of the dam were posted as teasers earlier. so that's it for now.

A great meetup - first of mine and a first in which many people participated. Thanks to everyone and looking forward to seeing you all again!

And this brings to the end of my photos with just one thing that i noticed on my return - there was another meetup of few bullets on the other side of the reservoir -

Hi Soumyajit,

Thanks for the tag but unfortunately it is nitish.h who was entertaining us with some car vs wild stunts.

Great pics. Glad to see Jr.Soumyajit also enjoying the presence of so many cars.

Cheers

Sorry for the confusion. I was trying to identify the handle with the ride name as per the list.
So Nitish entertained us. Thanks Nitish for the stunt !!

Oh! Man! I knew the timing of my trip onsite was wrong! And going through the pics has just doubled my misery.

Waiting for more pictures. Looks like a really fun meet.

There is always a next time ...

My first meet and was good to meet members and put names to faces.

I missed the meeting point and the breakfast since I left home post 7am.
Had a good ride and was able to catch up to the convoy soon after the Mysore highway cut off .
A good location where the whole of TBHP can be accommodated if required.

unk9ja's , apologies on behalf of my 500. I guess old and new technology don't get along after all. Glad the damage was limited to the sticker being scratched. Could have been much worse.

Some pictures from phone.

It was nice meeting you guys. This was my third TeamBHP meet. Decided to bring my ladies along and therefore, had to ditch the bike.

We had a great time. My daughter enjoyed a lot seeing the open grass land, the birds and the dragon flys. It is not often that a kid can enjoy such freedom in a city like Bangalore!

Hope to meet you all again soon.

Regards
