That was a wonderful meet yesterday, lots of fun, food, and adventure

BTW, when I reached home it was already past 12:00 am, so got a earful from other members of the family.

Somebody with good writing skills please provide a detailed write up

Nice to have met you guys! (I made it this time). I had a good drenching rain ride back home!

Write up please.

Had a nice meet with a twist at the end. Following turned up:

nitrous
bivin
gilead
ajay2332
hirevbg
jagxf
mi10
dwind
pr 007

Met at CCD and then moved to Al Arab. Pr 007 nearly paid 600 bucks for a pepsi.

Then Mi10 and I got a wild ride on nitrous' 'stock' Mistress. It didn't sound or drive like any stock car that I know of.

Came back around 11:30 pm to retrieve our cars and found the psycho watchman holding them to ransom after having locked up the gates. Gave us gyaan on CCTV cameras and 'CM route' and insisting we come in the morning and meet the 'manager' and take the cars. Had to grovel for a few minutes and eventually bribe that guy to get the cars out.

Then I latched on to the tail of bivin's Swift driven by jagxf and had a fast n furious drive till college road. Slowed down after that. Still reached Anna Nagar in about 8 minutes from Citi Center.

Nice meet overall. Nice food. Only hirevbg had to settle for some thayir sadham and adai.

Sorry for the OT:, But i think it deserves a mention here.

Mistress is quite an apt name. From the outside she is just like any other esteem save that alloys and fatter rubber. No extravagant colour schemes, no "Shanker" graphics, No Blingy LEDs, well, not even projectors .

Even when it starts rolling there isn't much of a clue, prob'ly the exhaust note is not muted, but for a laymen it may be a case of corroded muffler.

Past the 4K RPM, the Mistress takes off (not literally ;-)) all the way till 7K and then the shift. she jumps forward and screams as wildly as a wolf on full moon again to 7K mark.

It was fun. Infact it was a truly dizzing expereince as we blazed past quite a few ANHC's Verna's, Fiesta, and Autorickshaws. All went by in a Blur.

Hope Mr.D comes out whats' under the mistress (hood)

And ya, i never knew we would be held at ransom by a watchman.

Think Pr007 took some Pics, buddy care to post it ?

Guess you all remember the way that watchman handled that bike!

How did you trust your cars with him ?

It was great meeting the Chennai BHPians in person. Hope to meet a lot more in future. The watchman turned out to be villain at the end. Anyways lesson learnt, We now know how to keep him humored the next time we leave the cars with him.

No Gilead I did not pay any money for the food and even the Pepsi that I drank came free of cost. As that guy said that he won't charge me for the pepsi.

Photos as follows.

Photos taken from my cellphone camera so please forgive the quality of the photos.

I was the one taking the snaps so I will not be there in the pics.

Wow, now we know how Mi10 got all the dough to buy the Morel equipment. He's raking it in.

And nice 'Close Up' smile in that last pic.
