My route - Nagar road - Khadki - Old mumbai pune highway - Venue.
Can pick up people from Mundhwa, Kalyani nagar, Nagar road vicinities. Once I cross the Holkar bridge, it will be non stop till the toll gate.

Also which side of the road is big wheels in. The same side as Toni da dhaba or the opposite side.
MX6 , I have sent you a PM , vipul and me are meeting near MRF Tyres / Golfway Center on nagar road. So lets move out together from there

@MX6: While heading towards Lonavala the Place is on the Left hand side. You will see the Board which is litup.

Hope to see you there.

Cheers!

MCD is on the left side before the expressway starts and you should be able to spot the same easily.
Regarding route, following are some pointers. Drive asking for these locations i.e. Dadar->Sion->Priyadarshini ->Right after Priyadarshini->Chembur->Mankhurd->Vashi-> Road takes right for NH4 and after a few Kms, you would see MCD on the left.
Well, finally, i wasnt able to make it. Good thing i hadnt confirmed
Anyhow, was still in South Mumbai at 5.15 & stuck in traffic so decided to abort & just came home. Kept in touch with Issigonis who was also stuck in traffic at Thane but will be able to make it.

Well, have a blast guys. Looking forward to the report & the pictures.

Couldn't make it :( , had to abort at the last moment. Trust bosses to take on fire-fighting duties at short notice.

I was really looking forward to this......

MX6 and Ranjith.Rajaram are trying their hand at billiards. MX6 has never played before. Ranjith says it's easy.
Guess what happens? MX6 hits amazing shots inbetween equally pathetic and both are inexplicable.
There's a gentleman standing there at the corner watching.
Midway he strikes a chat with MX6.
MX6: blah blah blah. my fingers are short. blah blah blah.
GM: you should probably keep to driving and photography.
MX6: blah blah blah. I don't take much photos as I do a lot of driving.

More blah blahs.
MX6 thinks he knows who this gentle man is. He is using all the intuitive powers and utilizing the Ramanujam title given by HVkumar.
After a few more blah blahs.
GM: That's because you don't know me.
MX6: Of course I know you. You are VRPrabhu.
GM: I'm not.
MX6 misses that in all the noise and music.
MX6: I'll tell you how I found out. basically when people speak or write, they show a behavious pattern, and I analysed and built a pic of you. And to add to it, Ashishpallod tells me that vrprabhu hasn't come in though he sent a pm asking him to come.
GM gives a perplexed reaction
MX6: So I got introduced to all, and then you come walking in and stand here, so you got to be vrprabhu. Because of my "analytical skills". Hows your daughter. Got her admissions done.
GM: I don't have a daughter.
MX6: What do you mean you don't have a daughter.
GM: That's because I'm not vrprabhu.
MX6 thinking deep within, "wow. All that soliloquoy about clinical psychology and analysis and behaviour pattern and ramanujam title, quick pretend you are drunk" retorts: Ok let's formally introduce each other.
GM: I'm Khoj
MX6: O boy. You had me there. You caught me with my pants down.
Khoj: I gave you clues about photography
MX6: That every one knows
Khoj: I hinted about snakes
MX6: That too many know
Khoj: I told about kaas.
MX6: Yes, vrprabhu, 4 members from bangalore, 1 from satara, ashishpallod and many from pune have shown interest and have pm-ed me about kaas.
Any clue you give, I'd still not have found out. Because I thought you were in delhi. And you had me there.
Khoj: gives a devilish laugh inside his mind. Man ki hasi. Please see shool to understand what's man ki hasi.
MX6: I'm sure this will hit headlines in t-bhp, "MX6 becomes jack a.s.s."
Khoj: no it will not.
MX6: It will, and I know who will post this in the forum.

That's just the beginning of all the fun.
There was one member who brought his wife in. Kudos to you dude. I contemplated a lot and decided to leave my wife out as my baby doesn't stand places with loud music. And the deafening music of big wheels vindicated my point. But next time to a quieter place, I'll bring my whole family. Taking a cue off you.

Thanks Ashishpallod. You kept your promise of bringing (exactly 3 rajababus). Bus still, it was sad that the person who jogged in the platform and the one who asked for misal pav werent there. But it was fun. And let me reconfirm, you are the king of information. I'm still a new kid on the block.

Ranjith. Apologies for reaching you home late. We planned to return home latest by 11. So if your wife throws any utensil on you, please take the pains of showing her this message. I delayed you because the meet was a roaring success.

Kenpachigamer. Yes. The pune meet is on. I'm not in pune next weekend so we shall plan one immediately. Let's get the i pee on terrorism (vikram18) guy and his gang as well.

Khoj: It was so nice talking with you. I shall think about the administrative stuff you told about.

All others, it was great fun in the meet. Watch this space for photos. Too sleepy now.

Vasuli Anna. 410 bucks is great deal. You rock dude.

Super select: Thanks for all the kind words. Brief interaction we had. But yes, I keep driving to Mumbai atleast once a month. We'll catch up for a mini tapri meet in mumbai. Khoj has volunteered to put me up at his place. (like 7 - 8 other people in mumbai).

Amazing memory, almost verbatim, Excellent, the score however remains 2 vs 33

I had like a pint and I certainly do not remember making that offer. What is this "Maan na maan, mein tera mehmaan??"

Koi nahi yaara, chadeyan de ghar darwaze nahi hoonde. Any time pal. !!

Damn good meet it was. A pleasure getting to know all of the guys especially Speedy, Ranjith, Ashish & Sujit, Throttleking, Super Select and MX6, hope to catch you all at another meet sooner than later.

The venue.

Mumbai-Pune megameet at Lonavala: 17th July 2010-2.jpg


There was pool table as well. MX6 and Ranjith decided to try their hand at it.
MX6: I've never played pool.
Ranjith: It's easy. Let's have a game.

MX6 goes on a frenzy and hits everything everywhere. Moves balls with his hands as he can't even hold them still. Hits the cue ball in atleast 6 times. But surprisingly, he's finished off all but one of the striped balls while Ranjith the better player is playing too technically and is struggling with all but 1 of his ball pocketed.
Then it dawns upon MX6 that Ranjith is no better
The Saint is walking towards the rest-room. He shouts from there looking at MX6 and Ranjith playing, "When I'm back I want to replace the loser".
MX6: Absolutely no issues. We both are losers who are desperately trying to hit something in!
Ashishpallod is on a frenzy shooting MX6 playing pool. Maybe it's to show 12mati people how people in big corporate finish deals.
One fluke shot and something goes in and MX6 comments: Abhey, this is very easy.
Ashishpallod: I too thought it would be tough.
MX6: I don't understand why they showed villains in bollywood movies playing pool as though it's a damn tough game and mouthing dialogues like usko khatam kardo, with the camera showing a ball falling in to a pocket at that point.
As MX6 speaks, a ball goes in, and Ashishpallod quitely slips out fearing the unspeakable.
The Saint comes back sees us struggle over and is amazed. He apparently missed MX6's comment on his way to the rest-room.

Default Meet Review

Hi !

This is WDM007, planned to attend the meet just two days before, the reason being:
Major one: Wife & kid out of station
Minor one: No other plans to kill time

So made entry in the thread, PMed few guys, but at the end decided to march alone towards the venue. It was a lovely weather in the evening all the way, except rains.

This was my first meet with the T-bhp guys. So had some apprehensions in my mind, but went there with empty mind without much expectations from all others, just to meet new people, make new friends & last but not the least, get 2 cents of information from others related to any damn thing.

Reached the venue at around 1759 hrs. Searched for others, no one was there. Searched for cars with tbhp logo, not a single one. So went inside, inquired about the guys from Tbhp, they said no one yet arrived. So went out again, and what a surprise ! Saw Ashish Pallod getting out of the car with other RAJA Babus. He arrived exactly at 1800 hrs. What a great planning boss ! Really appreciate it. Greeted him, talked about general things, slowly people started arriving.

People started introducing each other, then all of us went inside to explore the place. The theme of the place is unique & somewhat different.

Ashish also got a chance to meet with the owner and know about the History & Geography of the cafe.

There were lots of car models, pics, instruments etc related to biking, can you believe, ashtrays were made of piston cylinders !

And not to forget, there were lots of "puneri patya" [read signboard or message board] at this place. Hey hey hey, a place in pune without patya ! Impossible to imagine. The best one that I liked there was:

Bikes dont leak oil,
they just mark their territories.

When majority of people were arrived, started conversations on all sort of topics, enjoyed a lot to hear elderly suggestions, experiences warnings etc.

Thanks to agnagpur for a quick demo of latest Nokia gadgets.

Also thanks to Amit for the great company yesterday. [Whats your handle here?]

Special thanks to Ashish, MX6 & Khoj for the funny experiences you guys shared.

Kudos to throttleking for the arrangements.

And yes, thanks to all others whose (user)names I forgot now

Left the party at around 2330 hrs.

While returning me & my car was heavily loaded with new experiences, knowledge, friendships & happy moments.
