You'd be surprised that I'm not a human! My motor organs and my athletic abilities are controlled by a flat-six engine mated to my 'rear-end' just like a 911!

Just Messaged Suhas and mostly I will come along with him
KR Raj! If you're coming, I don't mind waiting around! Take your time and freshen up but don't be too late! I'll meet you in front of Nagarjuna (Indiranagar, double-road) at around 6:45-7:00! I will text you when I leave!

RK Sans,

You can still make it! But if it is far away then we can always meet again sometime!

Ok. The 'meat' report.

I met up with Krish at the signal in front of Koramangala BDA. I recognised his car and waved to him from my bike. As we were waiting for the signal to turn green, I get a call from Sammyboy. I ask him to wait a few seconds and as soon as we take the right turn, we meet him.

We realise that there isnt muhc place to stand by the side of the road. We go a little ahead and stop where there is place. Suhaas is coming with KRRaj. I ask them to come directly to the venue.

Krish, Sammyboy and me reach the venue and sit down. Jassi is the next ot join us. Roy.S follows almost immediately. Then tintin82 walks in and finally Suhaas, KRRaj and mkh.

We order some heavenly chicken wings along with some pork spring rolls. KRRaj and tintin are veggies and they order some salad or something.

Oce we meat lovers are done with the starters, we place an order for 6 identical burgers. The burger is called Moos your daddy. Consists of a huge beef patty between two sesame seed buns and includes pickles, lettuce, mayo, lettuce, cheese and bacon.

On seeing the size of the burger some people are already intimidated. However, most of us finish the burger except for thw two entrants into the Hall of Shame.

Sammyboy and Jassi.

KRRaj and Tintin have ordered two different veggie sandwiches.

Talk at the table ranges from a variety of topics which can all be grouped under 'automotive talk'! It is really good fun talking with these guys. It's been a while since I met up with TBHPians. We have a great time ribbing Sammyboy and Jassi for being the only two people who let the side down by not finishing their burgers.

Once we're done with dinner, we clear our table as there seems to be a crowd of people waiting outside. We continue our discussions outside. This is even better than the conversations inside as everyone is involved. At the table, we got divided into two groups, unfortunately. Roy, KRRaj, tintin and mkh ended up talking together while the rest of us didnt get to speak much with them.

However, when we were outside, we were all together in a kind of a circle and it was really good fun!

All in all a great meet! Would love to do it again guys!

hee hee I am sure each bite would have been followed by lifting huge weights

I still cant get over it. Next time Nikhil mentions the word "huge" it means "freaking mammoth". Note this down boys and gals
Nikhil, Suhaas and Roy finished the burgers with space to spare. They even dug into the salad which the veggies were too stuffed to have. Hats off to u guys.

Krish managed to finish it too but then Krish had this awesome look on his face for another 15 minutes.

Then, when we were able to walk out (somehow) we had a long discussion on After Sales Service and a lot of other stuff .

Who has the pics? Upload them guys.
Had an fantastic time meeting everyone, we should do this more often.


@DigitalDragon: No prob bro, wish your leg gets better soon.

I guess that pretty much sums it up! Everything, right down to the after-sales and service! Or rather, self service!

Let's not forget the fact that Nikhil actually ate a forkful of the green salad much to the surprise of everyone, the spinach included Roy was quick enough to catch the moment with the camera and assured me that the photos will make a grand entrance on T-BHP tomorrow.

I should say that about half the time was spent talking about restaurants and their delicacies starting from the humble hut called Bobby's Dhaba to Malaysian ones which serve everything that runs, flies, crawls, swims and saunters. And guess who was the most authoritative amongst all in this subject?

And ofcourse, Jassi displayed true Team BHP spirit and drove 300 meters down to the Cafe from his apartment. . And much to Raj's chagrin, and mine too, Cafe Thulp had just one grand entry named Coffee in it's menu. And the burgers were so large (and delicious too) that everybody could be heard heaving huge sighs of relief after having consumed calories good enough to keep us going the whole of Sunday and a better part of Monday too.

Jokes apart, it was nice to meet members in real person and get to know them. All topics were trashed about in just the right dosage, thus not letting boredom take over at any stage. Looking forward to meet everyone again.
