Please ignore posts of mine that you can't understand.
Especially since you're in the stone age and still go gaga over a yezdi or a jawa.

I just rode behind flipsyde's esteem and he carried me in his slipstream most of the time.

But the car needs better tires to grip in higher speeds, and it 'feels' like its doing 125 km/h, but in my Qualis when i do 140 it does not even feel like 100.

About Yelagiri, I heard from my friend who had gone there recently that a new resort had opened there which he says was very good. I will get the name in case we do have trip to Yelagiri.

Thanks ravi for the Jawa 350 snap. Heard so much about it, but never really saw one. Please do bring this along for the next meet, would love to go for a spin on that one.

good day fellows!

Yelagiri is a nice Idea, is some serious plan going on?
I missed the 15th drive to Mahaps! saw the photos, they were nice and amazing!
Wonder if you fellas went to the shore temple or not?

What do you guys feel about the new look of Mahaps Shore temple? the lush greenery sprawling around? I wish to know what you guys feel about the attention drawn towards the Shore temple in the name of TTDC ??

Hi,

We did not go to the shore temple..

Instead, we went right on to Moonrakers as most of us were starving, did a tankful, and returned back!

The Yelagiri trip can happen if we have the requisite numbers! [Last time there were only 5 cars from Chennai :(]

Contact Organiser John, little organiser Nitrous, and Madan80 for further details!

Yercaud is an amazing place, but not short enough for a 1 day up and down.
Bad roads - i wont agree, Chennai to Salem my father and brother drove envery week end, and is amazingly fast! Salem to yercaud is neat roads, what we can expect for a hill station!

Ok, that is out of context! back to the Yelagiri idea!

Yelagiri is a nice place, and a stay at some forest house would be NICE

What is John's ID in TBHP ?
