Thumbs up One mans GULAB JAMUN is another mans Lyangha!!!

Hi Guys,

I have been planning a trip to Panagarh to source parts for my recently acquired RCL Jonga from Panagarh.

Can someone please help me with the details of the meeting point in Kolkata and contact info? I will be in and out of Kolkata the same day (I live in Bombay).

It would be great to meet up with you guys. I'm 99% in!

Regards,
Prasad Iyer

They had repaired the Panagarh stretch but it's showing signs of breaking up again. Looks like it wont last this monsoon.

Other than that slow moving trucks are the only impediments to 'brisk' progress !

Headcount as of now:

1) predatorwheelz
2) NOS Power
3) Souvik
4) Evo
5) sumit_jain_usa
6) premjit + rocket
7) octane1002 90:10
8) shuvc 50:50
8) planet_rocker 50:50
9) Saurabh M 50:50
10) R32_GTR

People going on to Panagarh post breakfast at Shaktigarh:

1) predatorwheelz
2) NOS Power
3) Souvik
4) Evo


Guys with the ratio analysis in their minds, please come. Its been a long time since all of us have met. Where are the rest of the crowd, shuvd, me_sid, xeta, 1100D, etc. and all new members. Would request participating members to pass on the message to others who haven't seen the thread yet.

Meeting point is Arsalan, Park Circus at 7:00 a.m. for south kolkata residents, whereas north Kolkata people may choose to take NH2 directly via Bally, and meet up the contingent at the juncture of NH2 and NH6.

If there is any confusion regarding meeting points or time, please PM me for south kolkata and predatorwheelz for north kolkata.

@R32_GTR, please PM predatorwheelz for info as you will probably be coming in from the North.

Still 50:50 I will be able to confirm on Saturday.

I need to tag along with someone - The front tyres are not good enough for a highway drive. Lets see.

@ Aniket - you need to send PMs to all members and direct them to this thread (use the link)

Few Active members from Kolkata - Pancham, Avishar & Shamik.Bose. @Rohin cannot post right now - membership problem - but i guess he knows about the thread already.

Take care and drive safe

Premjit, thank you. Noshu is currently in a "Will I, won't I?" stage. If he doesn't turn up, would be glad if you can take up the ante of coordinating the South Kolkata members.

Btw, I think R32_GTR can be included in the Panagarh list too. He wants parts specifically for his Jonga.

You know that getting a lift has never been a problem. Get your wife along too.

Noshu has already done the PMing today. God bless.

Lads,

Please take tons of pics of the Panagarh army dump (can we have a better term for a figurative and literal gold mine for carheads?). I've heard a lot about this hallowed spot in India's automotive landscape.

Regards and have a safe and fun drive.

Avishar, passenger seats are always available. Could you tell us where do you stay? If you are in North Kolkata then you can tag along with predatorwheelz (PM him), else if from south kolkata then PM me your number and just hop in. But mind you, my car is the slowest of the lot .

We will take a lot of pics of Panagarh. But you can look at the below thread for starters.
