Good idea, but I have a vague feeling that you might soon run into Technical issues.

One more shot of Lil Red Fire:

Here, I present you the amateur video clip shot by Maahir using his Sony ericsson.

That was one help of a 'Scorpio Bashing'!

And the 'dialogues' were

Thumbs up Here is a Drive!

Guys, see how Safari bullies itself thru some expected and unexpected offroading.



I'll add some dialogues later.

This video is a historical proof as to why Santosh swears by the beast! Amazing.

Whaddaya expect?

A 5-series driving on the wrong side of the road with headlights on had to give way on the way back to Cochin later, scurrying away to the shoulder as we refused to move from our rightful side of the road.

On another note, we also got fined for speeding. Twice. Gimme another vehicle that will do all of the above within the hour.

Great write-ups Steer and Zak. And thanks to the turbo wistle / Green filter houl which made us role up the window on time. Otherwise these two Goondas would have (refer the evil laughter of ASHVIN) splashed us. One incident on day 1 - The Beast was just ahead of us follwed by lil Redfire (thanks Steer for that name) while The Beast did a small offroading on a turn pulling lot of stones with its claws to the road and the lil Redfire had to roll over them crying 'eey eey eey eey eey' shaking all of us hitting stones underbody. The whole scene was like a cartoon film (Beast throwing stones to road by pulling them with its claws and a lil bug has to run over them with its jaws hitting each other )

Certainly not something that is recommended for a morning reading... checked my mails and then came here and started grinning when I read these posts (Steers + this one)! People here have confirmed that I am a wacko!!!

On another note, does anyone have a GPS tracklog of the drive? It would be nice if someone posted it here.

We would've loved to have a GPS tracking done. But unfortunately, I think we forgot to even carry a gps device (you can blame it on our excitement). :
