Swapnil was discussing the Dynamic Damper Control from BMW that time and Arun provided him the ultimate tag-line for that technology.

Absolutely fantastic meet.
Looks like you guys indeed had an awesome meet. I wish I was still working in Powai; would've met during my shift! I miss the place. Is Starbucks still open??

re: Fortnightly mini-meet : Mumbai BHPians

Powai mini-meet TODAY
Time: 7pm onwards
Place: In front of Hiranandani school (old building). Please refer to 1st page of this thread for a map.

If you find a lot of TBHP Stickered cars but no BHPians around, please head to K3 Snack Joint nearby. You will find the group standing outside with a lot of animated discussions going on.

Everyone is free to join. Please feel free to walk in or rather drive in.

Cheers,
Raj

Hey Raj,

Will try to make it today if I am able to leave on time. Was just telling Aman that only. If I am unable to make it, will see you guys in the next meet after the mega meet.

Cheers.

Dang! I used to work in the building bang opposite to K3 (the one with D-Mart i.e. Spectra). How cool would it be to have mini-meets during my work hours?! Sigh Name:  date062.gif

re: Fortnightly mini-meet : Mumbai BHPians

Another great meet! Lots of interesting topics discussed
Pretty good turnout as well. Thanks SDP for getting your children. Your son is a true petrolhead. He spotted a Nissan Terrano and got everyone's attention towards it. We also spotted some harley's [but most of the riders were without a helmet :(].
I am glad that all of you liked the sweets. The next lot comes in January
The dinner at Utsav was also very good. Even Varun (powertrain) joined us for the dinner alongwith Raj and VVB.
Now eagerly waiting for the mega meet.

P.S. Swapnil's bike is a Bajaj Avenger and not a Yamaha Eliminator *lol*

Ugghhh!
Earlier I used to get colors wrong and now I am getting even models wrong!
Why does it always happen with Swapnil's vehicles? Now I just hope that Swapnil has not noticed it.


PS: Bajaj did bring in the Kawasaki Eliminator in India some 15 years back I guess. There was one in the office parking. Was imposing and droolworthy. The current Avenger is 'inspired' by it and is much smaller.

Thanks Aman for Correcting. But you forgot to give me the Sweets. I was to take them back home.

SDP... It is the Avenger 220. The Previous version was known as the Eliminator. So I excuse you this time.
Yamaha had the Enticer.

And... Nice pics BTW!

re: Fortnightly mini-meet : Mumbai BHPians

Guys you had fantastic time, saw two i20's meanwhile, whose machines? Good to see junior Team-Bhpian's too... And Aman, seems like my Surat trip ensured I missed those lovely sweets too. I was waiting for them :(

Your welcome. Really sorry about the sweets part. Actually we parked and went to the paan shop and you left from there itself. So it just slipped from my mind. But don't worry, January me new lot coming . BTW, Varun(powertrain) took the sweets home.

P.S. Even i got confused on the eliminator and enticer part. Man these names are becoming confusing *lol*

We sure had a nice time. Only the silver i20 sported a sticker. You did miss the sweets. But don't worry, more will come soon

What's the point of discussion in the pic where both Raghav and Sid are pointing down? Seems something interesting

re: Fortnightly mini-meet : Mumbai BHPians

I know its been a few days since the meet but since i was able to manage the time only today thought of posting a few more pics from the extended meet.

As SDP mentioned a few of them decided to stay back for dinner namely Swapzone, Aman, Siddharth, Raghav, and Akshay. While a few of us decided to join in later namely Rakesh, Raj (Desmo), Varun (Powertrain) and myself. We all had a good meal at Utsav, thanks to Akshay for recommending the place. Unfortunately Varun and Raj joined in only after dinner was over, Raj was in fact invited only so that we could use his company ID for a discount.

After dinner Rakesh and Akshay left while the rest of us headed to have paan at Jewel Pan Center from where Swapnil and Raj headed home while the rest of us spent some more time chatting and laughing. We must have all said our good byes at least 5 times till we finally decided it was enough and called it a day.

Some bad quality snaps below;

Final good byes that lasted for a good 15mins
