What a meet!

First of all big thanks to the organisers who did all the hard work..

Then one more to Narayan..thanks buddy for putting up with us
BTW your Yoks were awsome uphill. I owe you one

Thanks E_L for letting me park in your garage.

Over all it was a good meet neverthless a tiring one since I had been working the previous night. It was good to meet all the Bangy boyz.Wish there was more interaction.

Sorry for the leaving early part couldn't help it ..too tired.

will upload pics and video of narayan's OHC doing 170kmph later.

Having a few problems with the system now.

Bala.

Tadu seems that you need a gear more.... No wonder people call you mad mallu...

I distinctively remember Riju parking his car somewhere and I didn't see him for quite a while. I guess this is when he came up with this. But Riju, where are the pics of my car ?

And did the Santro sneak through in between the two lorries, leaving the Elantra behind (at least temporarily)? That is what Santros do best, when there is a lot of traffic around.

well.. i was riding in the santro with jassi... tempted him to do that but he was pretty cautious... cos just then the lorry on the right side started speeding up and finally we had to wait till tadu had gone past us to squeeze in front of the getz...

Infact we were all lucky not to have got caught behind more of those drag races amongst trucks. I remember once getting stuck behind atleast a dozen trucks drag racing at not more than 10kmph for over 25kms. I had to be on first gear all the time, momentarily dropping back and shifting to second. It was the most frustrating time of my life.

well i remember after we got past one of the longest drag races, each one of us rolled down our windows and gave gaalis in various languages

ofcourse we all know its not gonna affect them truckies, but all our pent up adrenalin (due to lack of speed) had to be vented out somewhere
