Default Long drive(Bangalore)- Sunday morning!!!

Hey guys,
I know this is coming your way with a much shorter notice however this is the plan: Me and a few friends have decided to go for a drive on Sunday morning(11th Feb)... We plan to do around 300Kms max(two way). The idea is to just get away from the city hum drum n just DRIVE!!!

We have decided upon meeting at 6.30am at Dakshin Honda on hosur rd then take Krishnagiri rd and drive on say around 100 to 150kms, halt, chilllout at some desi food joint and return.

My OHC Vtec and a swift confirmed...Around 6members confirmed as of now... We planned only some time back so we are expecting more numbers anyways in times to come...

If anyone interested, kindly let me know...My number is 9845312601.

The whole idea of this drive out is to DRIVE our loved and well preserved machines on the roads we love and not to to visit some tourist destination...so, here's an 'Invite' to those enthusiasts only...

You can bring along anyone with you; Friends, non tbhpians, spouses etc...

Though this isnt an Official Official Tbhp meet, bigger turnout is only better!!!

May not be a good idea. Next day is Karnataka bandh. Atibele-Hosur-Krishnagiri.. Looks like a borderline situation.

The Wolf,

Might I suggest Bellary Road - you could even catch a glimpse of some those fighters at the same time. As Rudra suggested, avoid Tamil Nadu border.

HOw about Horesley Hills in Madanapalle on the way to chittor, It is around 150 kms and your car will be put to test on flat road, steep curves and the ghats.

My two cents

I guess if u plan to take the chintamani route to madanapalli you will be hearing a lot of curses from many here .. Roads are not that good , specially not in the krishnagiri , mulbalgal or bellary via tumkur league ..

Well im not sure as of now , dont have a ride unless a certain uncle decides to give me a taste of some BOOST over the journey .. Will confirm surely by tomorrow evening .. If i get my car by then , then pls make sure that someone gets a 800 or something to give company to my pace ..

May be wolf should get a iron clad mesh on his OHC to fend off those flying rocks, or even dodge the rocks(skills permitting).

Jokes apart, couple of my relatives got stuck near mandya for a couple hours, and the situation seemed tense. Showing the middle finger to riots and going on with business is the right thing to do, but you cannot get into the middle of a riot, and think you can do the same. I am not saying there is going to be a full scale riot, but why take chances.

Dude, riots are on Monday and the drive is planned for Sunday early morning...Do you still think that it might not be a good idea??

Well, rioters do not make an appointment. All you need is a cab with TN registration, that decides to tour Mandya on a quiet sunday morning.
