You of all the people should stay shut

That said - I have a spare Mico +30% bulb. Why don't you pick it up sometime.

Hmmm, get the broken number plate fixed - an open invitation for your friendly neighbourhood cop to make some money at your expense

Is this near Kufri? The trees and your HR plates tell me its North. I went to one of the muddy roads which looked quite similar with your permission I can post the picture. One of these roads looks like Morni Hills & Kasauli

delhi to chandigarh does not have any bad road like in pic 3, and then undivided roads, so it looks like in Uttaranchal, somewhere around Ranikhet

It should be somewhere in Uttarakhand

Guesses could be - Any one of these Hill-stations Nainital, Mussoorie, Almora, Kausani, Bhimtal and Ranikhet

Yeah - it was just a matter of trying to take out wallet from pocket while belted in, and car rolled forward onto an Amby taxi!

That was part of the route - Dakpathar, not Dun.

and its UK for sure - even the file name says so!!

@suman - lol. I know. On the agenda. But my number is still clear - unlike 50% of delhiites who deliberately obliterate a digit or two

Deoban didn't go simply because it was a hailstorm at Chakrata itself - called up deoban and heard that it was not worth it.

Of course, marked it. Need to come back sometime and ride all the way to Mundali. But that is not fit for a VDi - but the 180!

PS: The mount is just 120 bucks from reliance autozone!

OT: NCR being so strategically located has good and driveable options for weekend trips.

Hyderabad. Not so much
