Great Super Turnout.

By the way any discussions on the drive and any decisions?

Where is Sudarshan sir in the pics? I did not recognize him. Landy was very much prominent.

Bala so what was the reaction of juniour bala after reaching home?

Cool ! Seems that you guys had a gala time on a Saturday morning.

@Noops: As usual, well written report. Thanks. What happened to your builder and the meeting?

That Sonata rocks man. Got to see it in flesh one day. Looks really killing, IMO this is the best looking ride of this meet. Sorry, Sudarshan, have to give it to the Sonata this time.

Great to see the Expert Adventurer, Mr Abhyankar. Damn! I missed the opportunity to meet him. Next time, the chair next to you is reserved by me already.

@mikon, @ninjatalli: Excellent photos. Loved the one in Sepia shade.

Well well, fabulous turnout and unfortunately I missed most of the meet. I would have been on time but the +1 wasnt ready to move so early on a Saturday and would not let me go either! Better late than never I guess, though I did get a couple of threats of no food next time.
Fabulous pics guys, great efforts there. It was good to be introduced to some people I had not met before or hardly spoken with. I hope to have enough opportunities to speak with you in later meets. notably, throttleking (I owe you for the bunmaska sir), ninjatalli, vikram18, padikpanthar.

Discussions on the drive: yes fleetingly while I was there.
Proposed for Sunday the 21st, so everyone can attend. I will request for a change in title and put up further details in a couple if days, once everyone has reported on their omelets

The junior has a few questions, not necessarily in the same order:
- when will he get to drive next in the big green vehicle with the shed? I need to explain the vent system on your LR better, Sudarshan sir!
- when will he meet the 1+ boy on his school bus route? (the one whose pic was shown to him by the uncle in dark glasses)
- when are we going to vohuman next?
- why do we put cheese slices (instead of cubes) in omelets when we make them at home?
- when will he get to see the car built by dada? (didnt remember Tejas' name, I had to prompt him)

Awesome meet, awsome food!

Guys, I truly wanted to be a part of this - would have been my first - unfortunately, I had taken the steering off my Opty (check this), so could not get my car out!

When is the next meet - will try to make it then!

@Ninjatalli
@Mikon
@Sudarshan

Nice Pics! Thank you!

@noopster
You've summed it all budd.

A few points noteworthy:

This morning, while coming for the meet, Swanand & I spotted a neat black Polo (MH 12 xx 89xx) with LCLC sticker on the rear right. This was parked right opposite Durga Car Accessories shop Nr. NCC Canteen, Law College Road. Is that a familiar car?

While driving back to my office after finishing my scheduled work in the area, I spotted Maulik's GP90 on J.M. road at around 3.15pm.
Had a small chat. He was busy shopping through the day. Enjoying the day off, not me.. him!

I spotted an OHC on my way back, near the SNDT/ Paud Road flyover. IIRC MH12 BG xxxx, headed toward Karve statue.
It was greenISH in colour, not green but I cannot describe it well either!
It had a LCLC sticker at the rear and the URL on rear windscreen, driven by an elderly gentleman.
Anyone know this ride/ bhpian?

Is it just me or the meet discussions these days are actually veering towards automobiles? Thanks all for the vivid and explicit descriptions and pics.

Arrow re: Next Tapri meet in Pune-6 January 2013 Breakfast, car demos & drive) at Chandni Chowk

A comment on the Route for this ( Pune >Varandh> Tamhini>Pune ) Drive

This will perhaps answer many Q's

1) Why Bhor (first) > Varandh & why not Tamhini ( first )> Varandh > Pune

Answer :
1) Shivapur Area & the Toll booth there -- better be avoided in the evening ( while coming back ) . People who frequent must be knowing the evening time delays at the Toll Booth & the Shivapur 'Bhel Chowpaty chaos '

2) Avoiding the tackling of Varandh Ghat ( narrow & winding roads ) at late afternoon or evening . Remember we will be climbing it ( if we choose to come back by that route ) In comparison Tamhini roads are wider


What to expect

1) Pune to Bhor -- NH 4 good roads ,distance 55 km time 1 hr. on route attraction Bhatghar dam

2) Bhor > Varandh> Goa highway ( near Mahad ) winding roads --Bad surface , will take 2 hrs for those 70/80 km ( up to Mahad ) Approx . Speeds wont be exceeding 40 kmph . But a challenging drive ( the Ghat ) ,Awesome scenes & good rains + FOG ( On top of ghat ) . beware of the single road in Main ghat section ( some stretches ) its been there for ages

3) Mahad > Mangaon 40 Km approx , wide road , expect abrupt POT HOLES & good surface . good scenes

4) Mangaon > Tamhini 60 km approx winding roads mixed surface -- Major difference >> Two vehicles can pass alongside in the Main ghat section

Disclaimer : 1) distances are approx , will give accurate details of route if the trip is finalised
2) This is for the people who have not travelled by this route , not for experienced guys
