It was not possible on that day to overtake on this road as the there was huge jam on Outer ring road and traffic had spilled over to this road which is generally empty. There was no ego clash here but just the car could not cope up.

When i saw him crossing me and i saw the sticker, i caught up with him when the road widens for a small distance of 500 meteres but he was not bothered. I am not sure whether there was any genuine reason as he overtook me over the hump. i could see him enjoying the song and driving.
Sure, point well taken. Could be this scenario too.. we never know. However, I find a couple of contradictions - heavy traffic viz a viz the car not being able to cope up. But I guess its best to leave them alone and give both gentlemen the benefit of doubt

Having said that, following holds true while out there -

EDIT - on second thoughts, a person jumping speed breakers outside a school might not be that gentle

Saw you around 1:40pm today on ORR, and you were closely following @shishir_bn ... not sure if you guys met. I was on opposite lane, first saw him pass by, and then you within a span of less than a minute.

noticed this i20 after it passed me on the IRR, before the Ejipura signal. if you were trying to butt into my lane to show your sticker, i forgive you your trespass (trying to get yourself acknowledged can get the better of you); but if it was a blatant attempt at getting ahead - believe you me, next time around it will not be a pleasant experience.

coming back home (and down the Silkboard flyover), saw this white Swift join the Hosur road from the side lane. it had a LTD on its hatch. the picture got shaky as i hit a bump when i clicked.

Spotted:
White Swift 7587
LTD sticker on hatch
On Comm street at around 4:15 today

You were trying some tricky parking maneuver in front of one of the shops. I gave you a couple of short honks, but by then a lot of people were honking, so I guess you couldn't have noticed..

Who are you, BHP'ian?

Cheers,
R_S

I followed a black Fortuner with number 'KA 51 MA xxxx' from Dommasandra till it took a left at Kodathi village on Sarjapur road. It had 'got bhp?' on the right of rear bumper.
I also saw a goldy-bronzy coloured KA04 old City parked at Doddakannelli, with 'got bhp?' on the left of rear bumper.

That was me Rohan :-)

Around 5 pm today, I followed a silver I10 with TBHP stickers on Sarjapur Road before overtaking (after Decathlon) and waving. The waving was to acknowledge a fellow BHPian...my wife said that she has seen the same vehicle earlier...probably someone who lives close by.

PS: I was forced to overtake from the left since we were in a hurry, and I had flashed my lights a few times with no response. Perhaps you didn't notice....

Cool!
Do you live nearby?
And do you remember the number of that i10? I have been driving on that stretch daily for almost 3 years, but have not noticed it..

I live near the Wipro office. Don't remember the number...I think there was a couple sitting in front. And I think the guy was too busy talking to the gal to notice - which is understandable.
