Maan what a meet we had. 8 / 9 cars (well I am oozzee) 1 bike and a scooter. Now the base line for mini meet is laid. 20 is for mini, 8 for miniscule. Anything less its just friends not TBHP meet.

Mazaa aa gayaa yaaroon. We met made friends we drove (vini vidi vici types). Its a treat to be with so many GOOD drivers / riders. My guest Nanak was amazed to see so many good ones at the wheels / handles together. He is an old motor head.

Drive back was the best. Avi kept his promise and never crossed 100. Ofcourse he was warned. If if he did that he would become sandwich material between a scorp and a safari.

Good drive, good food and lots of good fun. All of us did ENJOY. What say you you folx?

But we have come to an agreement .. the Hyderabadi moderator needs to be expelled from his seat.

We have also come to this conclusion that the moderator MUST participate in every meet. Biryani rule.

Zappo could I make you angry enuf???????cheers: the beer is on me when we MEET.

Drive / Ride safe

Kaushik

disclaimer:
I have mentioned the cars, not the names of the drivers.
I remember your name, its the other guy's I cannot remember.

This post has not been edited. I don't want to.
read it for what it is.


was a great day.
keep watching for some great snaps and great write ups coming up.

for starters, there were 21 of us, who had lunch together.
and some who came to see us off, some who skipped lunch.
thats a good 25+ people who met up.

some interesting cars, one scooter(I am in so much trouble for calling a blaze, that) and of course yours truly rode his bike.

some interesting speeds, a great view, a bee which almost stung me(you must have seen the stinger on that one) was found in my jacket.

I was at SD hospital at about 9:30 AM, found the following
red Viva
modded Accent GLS
red Palio
Kinetic Blaze

introductions, stupid ice breaker jokes later, there is another red palio or was it, leave it getting confused now.

of course all the cars were accompanied by the drivers.

A short 1/2 km ride later, find Safari and Scorpio parked.
do our contribution by spoiling traffic flow on that road.
some snaps are being taken, I remind myself. smile don't growl, you don't look fat, its this jacket, stupid jacket, hides all muscles and shows only the, whatever.

someone needs fuel, so decide to meet at the nearest Reliance bunk.
thats a good 1 km away and ofcourse it was closed.
meanwhile a black NHC joins in.

my bike is begining to act funny now.
she is having trouble breathing.
its like stall and fly, stall and fly. bloody thing is moody like hell.
I am thinking is it that time of the month or what.

am taking a turn, nice speed, stall. oh this is going so well.
bye bye world.

make it thru the turn, stop cursing bike, start loving life.

anyways, decide to put the bike in reserve mode, switch on headlight and go for the horn.
turn the petrol caps lid to open position.

it's either the battery or some block in the air vent on the petrol cap.

and playing with the bike in this way and then there is this noise.

tavera hits brakes, I can see smoke under its tyres.
stupid driver, but hey it's one of us.

wonder what he was thinking, lucky dude stopped his truck in time.
and I guess he was lucky not getting rear ended.

there is a tea stop.
free chai, god bless the good soul who paid for it.
or did anyone actually pay.

slight elevation on the road, the bike is still troubling me but not much.
I have decided the best way is don't touch the brakes.
taking all turns in whatever speed I enter it.
this is fun.

We then stop somewhere in front of a gate, nice view.
Viva is missing, they are on the other side of the road.
we drive on there and all get together.

nice view and ofcourse a couple of snaps.
modded accent opens his dicky and shows a pair of...ha ha this sounds so crappy oops.
music system.
loud music, very loud music.
then someone comments this is the problem with Accent, it vibrates tooo much.
hmm, whatever. but its loud man.

we then take off, but everyone is going the wrong side.
ok got it, everyone wants to experience a ghat road, even the tiny miny bit of it.

we come back to the original spot, the one in front of the gate.
bike gets ridden by scorpio guy.
I drive his scorpio. Its not bad. I actually liked the gear knock and screech brake and sorry about those nasty dents. just kidding.

bike goes to the scorpio guys friend.

I had told him about the stall action and he did something amazing.
He rocks the bike like he is having a fit or something.
whatever it was he did, it has exorcised the devil.
my bike performs well on the return trip.
she makes me feel so well. love her sooooo much.

Safari guy rides my bike, then his daughter gets on the bike.
she is angry with her dad cos her feet don't reach the footpegs.

We are off.

bike feels so good now.
and hitting the road with all the speed she can give me and I am willing to do on this bumpy, wavy road.

just when my jeans was getting all the way in, we stop for lunch.
its so nice when you are an animal eating carnivore.
had the sabzi and the chicken.
roti and rice for side dishes.

now do you guys know where all the chicken went.
the NHC guy ate it all up.

Then started the trip back home.
traffic, getting stuck in wave after wave of college buses coming in.
some of them must have been filled with amazing hot chics.
however they were not on this route.

one guy did point at my helmet and went like wow...and got his friends to look out.
none did.

now thats the guy who will come to team-bhp a couple of years from now or maybe already is here.

so one fine day, he will sit under a tree, with friends by his side. tell them war stories of how he punched someone or dragged a race or well you know the story, you were in it.

I get back home.
a long hot bath later. I would hope I can think straight but thats not gonna happen now is it.

Trying to console myself, saw a white Lambro at Taj Krishna on Friday night. The time was about 10 P.M.

I had to get my car serviced and had few other things as well. Did you not go to Anathagiri Hills? There was a good meet even last time I believe.

I heard that there a White Lambo in town. Last time when I heard it was spotted at Taj. So might be a frequent visitor or is it that they are using it as Taxi :P

It was one of the best meets in a long time. Probably after the Nagarjunsagar trip, this was one of the biggest turnouts. A detailed report and pictures will be coming up by tomorrow.

Btw, even i saw the White Lambo in front of city center mall on Saturday morning at 9am
