Wow! Nice pictures and reports guys.
I can see that you all had lots of fun and lived up to true TeamBHP spirits. The place you guys went to seems amazing. How far is it from Hyd? How's the road? As from the pics, it looks clean too.

The Dhaba story is indeed funny. FRIED FRANCE! YOGA CHICKEN! What on earth were they thinking? My goodness!
I'm sure there're more pics coming.

Thanks for sharing good detailed reports and pics with us. Looking forward for more.

Hi Speedzak -

This place is about 160 odd kms from Hyd. Road was excellent. We have reports of guys zipping at 130 KMPH as well, though i seldom crossed 100 KMPH myself. But a steady 90 KMPH was easily attainable. There is 1 patch of bad roads (about 3 Kms total) once you hit the 100 KM on your Odometer out of Hyd. The best part of the drive was the hilly terrain that we had to cross to get the the Falls (Ettipotala). Driving time would be about 3 hours from the city (with a break and all). We did face a couple of bottlenecks when we had to cross a few small towns which had the Sunday Bazaar on in full swing. But all in all a good drive.

Cheers

A

forgot to narrate this really amusing incident.....on my way back, I was doing about 70-80 KPH and there was this guy on a hero honda CBZ rding right up my ***. now, i was a little apprehensive that if I have to brake suddenly, he will run into me- not something I want on a highway (or any other place for that matter) to happen. so I slowed down a couple of times to let him pass, but he would also slow down and owuld refuse to overtake me.

I even gave him a hand signal to overtake, but he just would not. the road condition, and fading light, did not enable me to speed up to open up a gap.

so i got an idea and manouvered the beast so tht his guy was on the rear right side of the truck. then, at 80 kph, I downshifted from fourth to third, which meant the revs rising beyond 2500 rpm, and a huge cloud of black diesel fart, bang on our rider's face.

now THAT stopped him for sure and all of a sudden he fell about 50 paces behind me with a bewildered look on his face (no, he was not wearing a helmet).

That was amusing man. I am wary of errant bikers everywhere, all the time. Esp at night in Hyderabad. But dosent modern diesels have a 'overrun fuel cut off'? I mean dosent fuel supply gets cut when u let go of accelerator and perform engine braking as u did when u downshifted? .. Just asking..

lol its great fun to see these kind of people. On my return, myself in Xeta and another M800 were trying to overtake a DCM / Nissan or whatever Mini Lorry and that guy was not budging even an inch to the left or right on a 1 and half lane each side highway. This was after Ibrahimpatnam. It was like we both were flashing lights like mad and that guy was not even bothered and at last after about a km or two of tailgating, i was able to successfully undertake and then i took my own sweet time to let him get mad of his own behavior. I was not willing to go beyond 70 Kmph on the right and soon, the M800 followed and we made this guy go as low as 50 Kmph for a Km before we left our ways. Another thing i noticed was as soon as we try to undertake earlier, this fellow was steering a bit left so as to block us from going ahead and this really pi**ed me off. I made about 4 undertake attempts and succeeded in 5th due to mad autos with 8 passengers (yes 8 passengers and cyclists and other two wheelers).

Best thing to do to these **sholes who dont want to give space for overtaking! In fact when i used to drive in Kolkata, i used to stop in the middle of the road and start asking directions / act as if my bike stopped just for the heck of pissing off the Mini Bus drivers who used to drive very rashly to pick up passengers. Trust me they will not hit from behind no matter how much time you take to move , and then once they overtake you after lot of honking, you just come up to them again and show them the finger and take off! Dangerous but whole lot of fun specially with these types of drivers! Wouldnt recommend to any novice drivers!

This is a new one on me. What is undertake? Did you mean overtake?

Cool Overtaking from the left (here in India) is undertaking.

The practice of undertaking, therefore, may only usually occur on a motorway or other road where there is more than one lane in the same direction.
