it was a great meet like always or IMO one of the best. i am way too tired to write anything - just finished resizing/cropping the pics - i will have to upload them - which i will do either tomorrow (chances kaam - low bandwidth at home and another BANGLA BANDH @ WB) or some time later.

i have a lot of videos - but somebody needs to teach me how to merge the files into a single file - i have tried a lot with windows movie maker but cannot come out with anything positive.

members:
1. rocker, etc
2. shuvc, ninja & kito
3. razor singh
4. wimwian, rony & the other guy (forgot his name - sorry)
5. Xeta & wifey
6. our bong guest of hon. - zappped Zappo
7. BP & wifey - tagged along with us till panagarh.

detailed report coming soon. till then:

Double dang!! The road looks very, very inviting. More pictures maangta, ASAP!
How was the overall condition of the roads? Suitable for a blast in the Silver Bullet? While you people had the open roads to have fun, I got my D/L confiscated for "speeding" on Saturday afternoon. I wasn't speeding at all, just having a spirited drive along my night circuit. The cozzers didn't even have a speed gun!

Oh no. DL confiscated? When will they understand the difference between speeding and spirited driving

GQ roads are nice. Good enough for 160 in a santro. Imagine what SB would have achieved

Kolkata comes to a standstill today. Hope someone has broadband bandwidth to upload snaps from home.

160 in a Santro! Razor Singh doing his thing huh? How did the Silver Arrow behave? And, where is the detailed report and pikkchaars?
The bandh thingy looks really bad. I saw supporters waving flags and stuff as early as 5:30 in the morning. They tried to stop us (Magnum, an Accent and a Fiesta) but we sped away!

Now why can't I see this picture?

Santro behaved marvellously. Had enough in her to play with the big boys. And like p_r said, was amazingly stable and shudder-free at those speeds. I was pretty unhappy that I couldn't take Phoenix along, but the little one did enough to put that behind me
