Default Nandi Hills Drive

Some of us guys who went to GM's free check up camp on MG Road today decided to go on a drive later in the afternoon as the weather was just too tempting for a drive.

Finally set off at about 5pm from Yelahanka, the guys who were present are:
Mjothi and Family -Aveo
Bombatt and family - Spark
Vaseem and family - SX4
and yours truly with family - Optra.

It was pretty cold on top of Nandi Hills and all our efforts to get accomodation for the night went in vain as the place was completely booked.
Nevertheless we had a nice time and returned home after dinner at Green Park near Devanahalli.

Happywheels indeed it was a good drive and YES the continuation of the Singapore mini meet which we had 2months back in Singapore.

B'cos we both had our numbers and were able to catchup and go for the drive which was a very good one and lets hope we do meet up some T-BHPians next time when i am back in Bangalore in July.

Lukeskywalker & others great family meet guys and 3 Chevy's good & only 1 Maruti & 3 guys(No Hair).

The drive last Friday was brilliant. Though Tadu and myself landed up really late it was shocking to see Steer's Safari "handling" so well. Up until now, I never thought I would the Safari and handling in the same sentence. But dropping the truck by around 3'' has really made a huge difference to the way it handles on the road.

And we found a really nice dhaba which could eventually replace Kamath for dinner in the future drives.

It was nice meeting Steer and Ashwin.

Happy wheels, my number is 9900665757/9739961019. Just msg/call me and give me your number. I shall keep you informed about the future meets.

I dont know how did Happywheels & Gowda missed the drive, Me and Raj reached the meeting point around 8.15pm and when we left to the drive it was 9.15pm. We were at the meeting point for one whole hour. Anyways it was a nice drive in raj's elantra doing 120-140km/h except for that scary curve . BTW Steeroid mentioned about the drive to kerala, Anyone creating a thread on that?

Anyway, hopeful about the next one!

Infact, it was Vijay at the wheel. And it looked like he forgot he wasn't on his bike.
