Default Cruzing to Vikarabad

Could not agree more with Mobike. Heat, cold and rain cannot keep the Hydeez away from their drives.

The highlight for me was driving the WA. The car is, in one word - great!

Once inside and belted into the comfy seats with ample leg-room, one is totally cocooned from the hustle bustle outside. Road imperfections are something that bother lesser cars, not the Cruze. The car is totally comfort oriented and spoils you. Driving it - I loved the very precise steering. The Continetals give it fantastic road grip and are very quiet. The engine is a stonker and putters around in city traffic with ease. Once out in the open it pulls cleanly from just over 2K rpm all the way to 4K rpm. propelling the car like its tail was on fire. The gear shift is nicely sprung and changing gears is a breeze. The WA totally isolates the driver from whats going on outside the cabin and being a petrolhead I would have liked a little more feedback but then one cannot have everything. There was this crazy bus driver who started to move to the right after I was well into overtaking him. The choice was to brake hard, really hard, or push the right foot down, correct course to avoid collision and cut back in front of the bus. The spot I had to cut back was gravelly. Having observed that these offerings from GM have a tendency to fishtail, I was anticipating it and once the rear started to move I flicked the steering and floored the accelerator. Easy-peasy - the WA surged forward in the direction it was told to go. No fuss, no drama, just a clean movement from the car who seemed to be grinning from ear to ear like a playful but well trained pet dog who had just showed off his special talents. All good things however must come to an end and I very regretfully handed over the keys to Mobike who proceeded to pilot the WA with me tucked away in the passenger seat.

Once in the passenger seat I just loved the very things I hated while driving - like the isolation from mundane things i.e. engine, brakes etc. and the softness of the car. Wow, I could sleep like a baby all day long in that car while being wafted all over the place by Mobike.

Lunch left us splitting our sides with laughter. The food was great and we regretfully wound up late in the afternoon.

All in all, a day well spent.

Oh! I almost forgot. That boot thing. We wanted to check if the inside boot release lever worked and Shyamal was the man chosen to try it as he was the smallest. He unfortunately chickened out at the last minute and jumped out of the boot before we could close the lid on him.

Not only deteriorating, but also each trip has some incident or the other.
Mar 2009 - Sai Thakur's accident
Dec 2009 - Myself and Suren's vehicle developing fault
may 2011 - Neilguy's car dying down all of a sudden

Do you mean to say that Vikarabad Drive Meet is a Jinxed venue for our meet?

Oh lovely pics... Jinx, could be. When I rode to that place, I had the first ever puncture on my bike while on a ride and the first ride of with wify.

Could not be a part of this drive, as I met with an accident last week on the way to office on my bike. Thank fully not a major one, nursing a sprained foot, knee and wound. All on the right leg. Bike suffered a broken Dome. Been working from home all week.

Loved the pics of the WA. She looks like a killer whale.

Oh yeah! you can say that again. Some patches have actually improved and some of them were smooth and bumpy earlier have given way to big potholes and sometimes no roads. Next visit on that section would be only until " All Seasons" which is an amazing place for lunch due to their unique tree covered shelterings and decent food.

Ok fellas, now its time to plan the next one and it will be the much awaited meet for some of us to enjoy some really good or rather the best hyderabad cuisine

Thanks to Zen 91, it will happen in early June'11. Brajesh bhai, let us know which day works?

What : Great Hyderabadi Nizami Cuisine Dinner Meet
When : June 3rd or June 10th ( Only Fridays). TBD !!
Where : Nizam Club, Basheerbagh
What's to be relished: Mutton Shikampur, Nargisi Kofte, Mutton Biryani, Truffle Pudding
Note: Let's curb the headcount to maximum of 20 for ease of management at club. Therefore, copy paste and add your name to below list ASAP.

Since I will not be in Hyderabad on June 3rd, I would request this meet to be on June 10th. But if everybody else wants to have it earlier so be it. I'll be sad to miss those Shikampuri's . I would understand DownSouth will also be back from his trip of the Dark Continent in the Southern Hemisphere.
