Since there were 2 of you, one of which was not driving, I guess you were permitted to film while in the car.

Thanks for sharing the pictures and video (and your version) they surely add another dimension to my report.

Kudos again to your enthusiasm.
Thank you Navin Sir!

Well the only vehicle that we had available with us that day was the Activa! So that was it

And yes, the ride to the event was more adventurous but really really painful when you are 2 up on a 110cc scooter with that age old suspension! While returning at every stop we couldn't feel our legs and some body parts used to go numb!

The feeling of sitting on a soft bed at home was "heavenly"!

Would we do it again? May be...but not 2 persons on one scooter definitely.

OT: Even the Jaguar performance drive was made possible via that person for whom we have utmost respect since even though we are not prospective customers of JLR he invites us for such events just because of our interest in them.

We didn't have a car with us so we set out on the Honda Activa! The LR Above and Beyond Tour was true to its name for us!
First things first; You guys are nuts & huge thanks for gorgeous photos of the Classic.
Even in my (not so) wild thoughts, I can imagine going to Amby Valley on an Activa and that even for a JLR event. I felt bad for Navin, when he mentioned about being picked-up in an Etios but you guys took it to entire different level. KUDOS is all I can say.

Regards-Sonu

Thank you brother!

The old Mumbai-Pune highway is buttery smooth to ride on even with the Activa, it is just the other roads except that highway which really (and i mean REALLY) are bone crushing!

We wish we were as lucky as Navin Sir to have been "pampered" with Etios!
