Can you please pin this on map for me? I will not be joining you for the entire meet but trying to make it to formal meeting point or breakfast point. My goal is to return back home by 10.30-11am :(

Though I am not participating in the meet this time, I may bump into you guys at McD or Salem since I am driving down to Madurai with family.

Hope to see some of you on the way.

Drive safe all and happy diwali in advance. Play safe.

Srinath

Sorry folks. I returned yesterday evening from a long trip down the same route ( to Kovilpatti) and find that I cannot join.

The entry from Karnataka to Hosur was a royal mess yesterday and the jam extended from half of Hosur to well ahead of the last KA toll gate.

Hope you left early and have fun!

Long drive + less traffic. Lunch can also be done some place on the way back? Other suggestions also welcome.

Btw Nov 1st is the beginning of a long weekend which means mad traffic towards Mysore. Are you guys sure you wanna ride to Mysore?

I'm ok with anything Aditya! I've the same prerequisites! Two wheels and no rain.

Guys is the meet/ride happening? I am gonna wait till noon for a final confirmation and itinerary

It happened... Yes, we drove/rode along and had fun

All of the above seemed to indicate an expectation of a "must meet" on 1st Nov. which kindled the 'cpr' effort; especially when it came across that it was the drive/ride that mattered not the destination.

With n_aditya (and his buddies) riding into the sunset/(hogenakkal ?), a hurriedly cobbled up drive meet was put up to meet that expectation.

A quick call to DC and Dr AD ensured a happening drive. Abirnale and Arjitin joined us, as planned, upto the breakfast point @ Shoolagiri. Thanks guys for a delectable breakfast meet.

Perhaps a case of 'too little too late', responses just didn't match the volley of questions in the thread.

That notwithstanding, for those of us who made it, it was a day well spent at the wheel and off it.

No doubt, where there's a wheel there's a way.

The drive turned out to be a 'royal cruiser'.

The misgivings of 1 Nov i.e. the expected traffic / pile up on road / toll gates couldn't dampen our spirits. Once we got past them, in our own inimitable patient stride, we took charge of our rides, 'ice' belting out our
favourite numbers and teased our way through the outbound convoy of holiday makers.

That in essence was the 'Added_flavor' of the day. Truly "Got Bhp ?"

Until the next meet, bye for now...

Wish you all a Happy Diwali

No teaser this:

It was great meeting you all. Thank you Ravi sir for the cpr; My first team bhp drive and I had fun. Icing on the cake - Diwali cracker shopping @ Hosur which wasn't planned.

Missed this one. A last minute Vijayawada trip forced me miss this one. Vijayawada drive wasn't bad either. Did see a few tbhp stickers enroute as well . Will surely try join the next one.
