What about a city meet up on the 15th or 16th of september?
please give us your opinions and preferences so that the planning can start. This can also be accompanied by a short drive for breakfast or lunch or atleast coffee

@anand,
good write up!

@ezhil,
sure, will make it early and will not keep others waiting

I prefer a saturday evening with in city meet,
but open to any time any day any where

@All,
how about having a fixed day-time and location for monthly meets?
for example, every 2nd saturday @7 PM @some prominent location
guess this would allow everyone to plan and make themselves available for the meets, post the meet also it would be helpful in deciding future rides. what say guys?

Sounds good. after the meet we can also go for short drives if possible. We can try out a few places and decide which is going to be the chennai meet point

Maybe we can have a consensus/poll on this as well.

options:
1. once a month
2. every 2nd saturday
3. last/first day of the month.
etc.

If it works out, then it could be emulated by t-bhpians across the cities - we could call it the T-day (or something like that).

Just thinking out aloud

A small suggestion from my side:

Why dont we plan a meet where we show the general public that teamBHP members are not just about revving up engines . During our next meet we can plant a saplings to show our commitment towards a better and cleaner city.

I know people are going to flame me for this. It is just a suggestion from my side. When companies do something for the environment why cant we do something from our side?

The fixed day and place sounds great! But, it must be within reach. Not too far.

And I remember sedatedDrive telling me that there will be a drive to kerala where the Chennai Bhpians get to meet Bhpians from bangalore who also drive down to kerala. Instead, we Bhpians from Chennai can drive down to Bangalore once in 6 months and for the next meet B'lore bhpians can drive down to Chennai for those long drives because it takes hardly 4-5 hours & it not only saves time but the fuel bills too!

If Bangalore BHPians can host Chennai/Hyderabad/Other City BHPians, then we can surely drive to Bangalore! It will be an inter-city meet which will be about socializing and getting to know others' rides.

Drive meets will usually be away from cities and civilization. The destination will likely be some exotic location. Or simply riding into the sun...

It is my belief that city meets(or even inter-city) build the foundation for drive meets.

Regarding question about choosing a spot in the city, anything in and around central Chennai should be reasonable from all suburbs of Chennai. That is why I prefer The Lounge@KNK or Barbecue Nation@T.Nagar. If distance is not an issue, then the Marina early morning is a great place to meet at.

There are many eateries that I have not listed which can serve as meeting points. It is the location and parking facility that matters.

as sedateddrive mentioned, for the in city meet, parking will be a concern.

may be hotel ashoka / palm grove and many other hotels in and around egmore can be considered.

A morning meet at marina / besant nagar would be great too.

Getting to know the bhpians from other cities would be great! may be after a few in-city meets , we can plan for longer drives!

@ezhilsundar, yes we can plant saplings. some good for the environment that we pollute?

I am not available on Sep 15th,16th ! But the idea of having a meet at a place like CCD for about an hour or two sounds brilliant. We should capitalize on this idea by Anand. But parking space for about 8 cars + bikes could be an issue.

Lets plan small, within the city meets like these more often, then utilize these meets to properly plan and execute an inter city trip

Ezhil photography takes the credit But the fort was fun too, some shade it offered when we most required, how good the drive would have been is anybody's guess!

I vote for monthly meet up like a 2nd sat / sun. Once we do this regularly we could even talk to Auto manufacturers in Chennai for a factory visits.

We ve got a enough manufacturers to keep us occupied for a year.

@haithereitsme - factory visits?? I would love that! That's a great idea, mate!
Fellow Bhpian @aravind.anand works for an Auto Giant! We can ask him about the visit!
