Default Bangalore: TBHP drive to Yelagiri in December 2008! Kindly post confirmations here!

This could perhaps be the last drive in this calendar year. So lets make it big.

Yelagiri, is a nice place. Awesome roads to drive, a nice ghat section, pretty decent place to find food, chill out and get to know other BHPians and their rides.

This trip has been done before, twice actually. And I am sure most members including those from Chennai would love to join in as well. So lets roll out the numbers.

For those who have missed out on earlier meets, read the following threads.

https://www.team-bhp.com/forum/team-...-5-2008-a.html

https://www.team-bhp.com/forum/team-...report-16.html

I shall talk to Hotel Landmark guys, see if a buffet lunch can be organized. And handle the drinks part of it too.

Putting up a poll to decide whether to do this on a Saturday/Sunday. Majority day will be chosen.

Hey Guys,

Count me in. I am a Newbie here in T -BHP and would like to take part in my first T - BHP meet. I am in for Saturday as we will get Sunday to realx.

I will bring along my M 800. I have been to Elagiri many a times. Its a Great place.

ON food, one idea I can share is that if there any Biriyani lovers, we can pack Biryani from Ambur or Vaniyambadi. Great Stuff.

Let me know.

Cheers
SBR

Roads are probably the best in this side of the country for some high speed driving.

The place is around 160kms one way from here. Itinerary shall be put up closer to dates we freeze on.

If I remember right most of the fun was had waiting on the hill side for traffic to clear! That is something I've never ever experienced before or since.
