LOL. That sure was one heck of a conversation.
hahaha...naw, no hangover can keep me away from a car/bike meet.

i had gone to meet the guys for lunch, and was then supposed to head to mahabs to meet you guys.

Thats when the Jawa 350 i was riding gave up the ghost and refused to move. Even a rescue Bullet couldn't tow it. So by the time I got it moving, it was already 5 in the evening and it was too late to go fetch a spare bike. Thats when I started calling Mahendra and pestering for updates

Wow! A very wonderful meet accompanied by wonderful reports and pics. Great!
Hats off to you guys. Next time, why don't you invite one of us outsiders as CHEAP guests?

Sure, zak. Why don't you do the honours for our next meet ?

Apart from those in the Mahabs group snap, there were some tbhp-ians who came to the meeting point at TIDEL, but did not join the drive. They must be in the other photos taken at TIDEL. How about putting a name to them also ?

if you dont know, I guess you really dont know.

They had a limited run in India. We've got about 18-20 of these running in existance among friends. Am sure there are more of them around, but unaware of their existance.

It was badged a Yezdi coz it was made in the Jawa factory in Mysore. Most of the bikes today are running brand new engines which a collector friend of ours in Bangalore managed to bring out when the factory closed down.

bike pictured here is from a friend's bike in Bangalore.

cheers

Baggage ? As in people ? Only 2 of us. BTW, once I ignored the 4th and 5th gears, it did make it a wee bit more interesting.
