It does help to know that the states down south are harassment free for out of towners. Actually had planned one earlier but dropped it due to the negative reports. I will certainly fix a trip down South.
Ha Ha you bet and to tell you they were very happy posing for the pictures.

I guess they stop only suspicious looking cars ( just my guess )

Hi VKochar , I'm so sorry for not posting pictures since last 2 days as i was really caught up with work.

I'm pasting lots of pictures this time.

These pictures are on our way to Lonavla and Khandala on the 1st day in Mumbai and our visit to the Gateway of India and Elephanta caves

Harish, what was the route you took down to Bangalore? I'll be driving from Delhi to either Chennai or Bangalore at the end of June. Solo, in a Zen. Haven't begun planning the route yet though.

You wont believe , it was a Harley and the Zig wheels team was there to take some videos ( kinda documentary ). Also they were test driving the A-star so i took a picture with it just for the records.

@ Prince @ Kochar @ Mobike : You guys are correct. Thats milind soman in skin that we saw. He was in shorts and a gym top and was coming back from a shoot.

There were 2 innovas with the camera crew etc , he did'nt look more than 30. My wife forced me to stop the car and take his picture ( he's been our fav model for a while now ).

I'm going to paste more pictures soon after this

These pictures were taken in front of the Famous Amby valley in Lonavla.

I really wanted to go inside but only managed to get a snap in front of the entrance , also to let all fellow BHPians know that this road to amby valley was so beautiful ( the nature ) that we spent a lot of time taking pictures and having fun.

2nd Day in Mumbai.

The car was real dirty by this time and thats one thing that was really irritating me , so i woke up very early the next morning and started to hunt for a clear in the building that we were staying in ( my cousins place ).

I asked a couple of them including my cousins cleaner but they refused even though i offered them Rs 20- Rs 30 for the same , finally i found a old guy and to m y surprise he agreed to do it for free so i expected a casual cleaning but when i came after 30 minutes i was surprised to see that the car was looking as good as new both from outside an inside ( the best cleaning that i've seen after the showroom cleaning ).

Our agenda for the day was to go around mumbai so here are few pictures of

Siddhivinayak Mandir
Gateway of India
Old Taj Hotel
New taj hotel ( as you can see the rope which was used to seal the area as we had gone there in december i.e soon after the 26/11 )

I did'nt do the Delhi- Bangalore stretch.

My route was Delhi - Jaipur-Udaipur-Ahmedabad-Surat-Mumbai-Goa-Karnataka-Mumbai-Indore ( MP )-Agra-Delhi.
