Nice pics Sidz. Brings back some REALLY fond memories of Miami. Loved that place. When I get time, I'll upload some snaps I have. Cars, babes, the works. Of course, given that one of the photo sets is from Spring Break 2006, most of the (ahem) true portraits of Miami won't make it to this forum. Those unfamiliar with Spring Break, please google it to know what I am talking about

PS: @Sudipto: I can see your point of view dada, but there are quite a few travelogue threads that have very little to do with cars. Personally, I have no problems with these.

Hey Sudipto - I was with you on your first post but this second post is not in keeping with the points posted so far or the concept of the travelogue section at Team BHP.

Firstly, I have moderated myself sufficiently to the point where moderators or others did not have to rein me in

Secondly, you mentioned about there being hardly any automotive connection behind such posts - did you miss my experience with the Corvette, the Hummer or the other automotive beauties that I had uploaded or were you focussing more on the other beauties in my travelogue?

Lastly, to my understanding the Travelogue section of Team-BHP is to share ones' experiences at travel to different places & not to act as a travel-guide to any place. Hence, your expectation on Team-BHP being the last place for a travelogue on Miami or Chicago is entirely misplaced.

Hence, chill out & take it easy

As somebody pointed out, I too have heard that there is a minimum requirement to become a HOOTER girl, not sure though. . .

Have you considered this section ?

http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/shifti...ge-thread.html (The Official non-auto Image thread)

And Dadu - no I am not offended. I have been to Bondi and Surfers' in Australia. But neither did I take those photographs nor would I post them here if I had indeed taken them .
After a certain age certain parts of the body become vestigial. I have certainly reached that age. You certainly have not. At this age I ride only my car on a daily basis and occasionally the Bullet.
Enjoy

Understood your body vestigial part explanation (was not required), but this was a generic statement and I wasnt expecting any clarification from anyone here, you surprised me.

Smile More Miami!

Was feeling very nostalgic about my adventures in Miami. So here are a few snapshots from some of my trips there. Enjoy!

Default Miami pics contd...

Some sights around Miami. Initially, I was stunned by the galaxy of exotic cars that were abundant. But I sorta got used to them in a bit. Never thought Hummers and Ferraris could be so, well, common!!

good pics Razor and sidz. after my trip to myrtle beach SC, I realized it was the best. I mean even after soaking in water, florida was too hot to handle, specially with kids. and i meant the temperature.

but really nothing can beat the image of a beach lined with careless sunbathers in terms of a vacation.

Thanks for adding your pics Razor. I guess no one is complaining with all these snaps of Miami.

The more the merrier!!

I guess you can understand how one feels when you recollect your memories from this awesome place that's called Miami

Cheers!!
