Damn looks like I missed some serious fun this time. Not for long guys.

That engine can rev upto 6000 rpm unlike the verna boy! And maybe that was a practice run by Nitrous in his face lifted Mistress.

Ok to update you guys:
1) There was no pre declared drag race. It was just me trying to catch up to nitrous on a relatively empty OMR stretch.

2) Fiery enzyme I guess you deserved a mention since you were a part of the trip plans. Unfortunate that you couldnt make it.

3) Phoenix, avoid this "meat" talk because vijay and I are 'naan' veg.

4) This yelagiri drive was just a discussion that came up between me and hellstar when we met up at Ignite on saturday. I said something like, "anoop, lets do something during the long weekend. How about a bangalore drive. I wanna go to nandi!". and anoop was like "Sure. But how about we get those guys to come down to yelagiri and we guys can drive up from here". and I was like "hey, that sounds great. lets pitch the idea to the rest of the guys". And that is the story behind our tentative yelagiri plan. So as phoenix puts it, who is game??

all these figure mean nothing if you have a talented driver behind the wheels man and , well you know that better nitrous.

the drive to nandi is really something which cannot be recreated anywhere else the short lovely drive and the mist and cold winds that await you at Nandi is just too good , and the clean air brings out the best in both men and machines. yelagiri is the nearest you can get to the same kind of feeling

Sorry, somewhere near vellore, as mentioned by Perakath it should be ambur.. I never stopped till now for a biriyani since I am not aware of a good place. I stick to vegetarian at the saravana bhavan when driving down from Bangalore.

It is based on hear and say that the biriyani is good. Nowadays don't have much choice near my office in Chennai, used to eat biriyani everyday for lunch when I was working in electronic city.

I repeat Vikram's question. Why was I kept out of the loop too ? Maybe this meat was only for the youths of chennai ? Or maybe you feared the storm & the carb esteem ?
Anyway, looks like you guys enjoyed a good dinner and finally Mr.Bean got to do what his signature says. LOL

Why is nitrous being so much buttered ? Are the Hyundai CRDis planning on roasting him sometime ?

Dude I tried to reach you last weekend, I guess you are not using that number nowadays. The meet was good but one of the dish (first one we ordered) had caused big trouble for me on Monday & my tummy is yet to settle down.

Would like to checkout your car next time we meet, between I brought a baleno but did not take it for the ride as we decided to go with Nitrous in his stock esteem

@phoenix - when your deciding this saturday's meeting point, any place where we can watch the india pak match on big screen? And I suppose such a place will require some kind of reservation?

I did not say that you are not talented i just said that sometimes it take more than just flooring the pedal to pull away.

yeah something like that, was being planned but being the budgetminded guys we CRDI'ians are, we realized that this was not a cost effective option as we will need too much butter to get this done completely to our satisfaction.
