Sad to hear about the road condition vis-a-vis bikes. However, I still can't wait to drive and ride it!

Scooby, you should know very well that if your wife is happy, you're happy as well !! Ofcourse, I'm still a newbie at the wife bit though!!

Yeah I wasn't really criticising you, hehe! Its real cool seeing the Audi in action like that. About the drive lines, this was my first actual long drive. At the beginning on the narrow roads, I did find it a bit a bit hard coz I was also a bit nervous. I could realize that I was over steering a bit. But after getting the hang of it, I could manage to keep the lines almost steady. No offence taken obviously! I'm learning, I'm learning...! Next time, maybe you could be the co-driver and gimme good tips coz I know of your experience. Looking forward to that.

Cheers!

Sajo, the American cars include:

1) A Ford V8 - very unique considering only 200 - 300 were made worldwide.
2) A Chevelle V8 4 door sedan. (In a pathetic condition)
3) A Ford Mustang convertible with an inline 6 cylinder engine
4) A Chevrolet Impala
5) A Chevrolet Biscayne
6) A Dodge Kingsway
7) Another Impala undergoing restoration
8) A Lincoln Continental undergoing restoration

Non American cars include:

1) A VW Beetle made by Maruti
2) A Toyota Celica
3) Another left hand drive car from the 80's (Forgot its name)

Edmund and group missed more of the cars but Me, Karl and Ram were dedicated to take a look at all the beauties and it was worth the time!

I wish Scooby . But the owner recently bought all these beauties in a row for restoring and making them gleam in his parking lot!

Only cars that do not belong to him from the list are the Beetle and the Lincoln.

[HTML]Received some detailed criticism on my driving from Mr. Shrivz! EVO6 had his usual sudden zhatkas with TT and brilliant tailgating shown by rahulvilas!
[/HTML]

Is that a compliment for tailgating? .....moral was .


rahul.

Default Weekend drive to Lavasa

On Saturday night (23rd August 2008) I got sms from Shrivz that they plan to have a drive to Lavasa on Sunday (24th August 2008) morning at 7:30am. I was exited as I have never been to Lavasa and only seen the pictures of it.

The plan was to meet at chandni chowk at start at 7:30am. I reached around 7:20 am and saw Vivek (1self) there with his Sonata V6. Soon we were joined by Shrivz and Kiran (moralfibre) and we had a brief photo shoot courtesy Kiran. Shrivz wanted to audition my ICE and he did so. Soon we were joined by rest of the people. As soon as Evo6 (Bhushan) came in his Audi TT, everyone ran towards him to book the passenger seat. But Vikram (vikram18) was lucky to have it. While waiting for the people to gather, there were some bikes group and happen to see few super bikes too (Sorry I am not good with bike models )

The final list of people was as follows:

Dhaval
hkanitkar (Corsa)
shrivz
moralfibre
1self (Sonata V6)
EVO6 (Audi TT)
vikram18
amey (Swift Diesel)
kumar_ranjan (Swift Petrol)

We started from chandni chowk at around 8:00am. The drive was very pleasant and the road was too tempting. There were lovely view of the hills and valleys. Finally we reached the check post of Lavasa. The security at first did not allow us to enter as there was some confusion. Finally everything was sorted and we were inside the Lavasa city. We reached the Resort called Ekant and had morning breakfast. There was some healthy discussion about the various topics while having the breakfast. After the breakfast Vikram wanted to audition my ICE and I gave him the demo. After some photo shoot of the lovely surrounding we left back for Pune. After we reached back to chandni chowk, we all went to CCD. After that everyone left for their destination as I left for my home.

It was a lovely meet and I really enjoyed every moment of it, sad part is that I did not carry a camera and would request people to post pictures of the trip.
