A sudden trip to tirupati meant I had to skip this meet seeing the messages as I am having my dinner before I drive back

I see 4 of them (you have left out the 24-geared/paddle-shift/discbraked beauty on 2 wheels)

Given that many cars here dont have disc brakes on all wheels, I was mighty impressed seeing them on both wheels of the bicycle.

And it was funny when headers was trying to feel the disc and madan said, "Hey man, careful, it would be hot". With headers replying, "Oh yes, as if this is a car which has come to a stop after a long run, making the discs all hot to the touch".

BTW, yes madan was right, there is a warning on the disc stating that!

And weren't my hands almost burnt?


Awesome bike though!

And madan looks 2 years younger than he was 2 years ago!

well.. as mentioned- i decided to change my sunday schedule from cycling to ECR to going and meeting everyone.

i left home and had a nice ride to the meeting venue, hoping that they wouldnt have dissolved the meeting due to non-attendance. None-the less, i reach there and biju and headers are talking.
so we hang around, i wind down after the ride, and try fitting the cycle on the gypsy - was mighty surprised that it fits.. now my evil mind's machinery starts working overtime in order to figure out how i can take my bike offroadin!

it was a nice small super mini meet... and for the record- the brakes do get hot at times.

Looks like a small bunch had a good breakfast. It was too early for me to make it all the way to Besant Nagar. Maybe next time.

So, what's the next plan ? How about a New Year meet on 1st ?

Vikram, Arka & Ravin - thank you for a wonderful lunch yesterday. It was a pleasure meeting you (again).

Edit: John - my fault, I realize I gave all you folks very short notice. We'll definitely catch up the next time I'm in town.
