Only if I would have known about it.
I was alone at home with wifey and kid out of town and was getting bored doing "nothing"!.

I hope I come to know the next time and make it too.

Went through the same agony when I missed the initial 3 drives.

Make sure you follow this thread for updates. Safe to assume, the next Zombie drive is a good month, or maybe more away now.

Cheers!
Cartman.

re: Fortnightly mini-meet : Mumbai BHPians

Zombie Drive - Saturday night - 1st Mar 2014 (and early morning 2nd Mar)

Although lot of us love the zombie-drive format of the meet, somehow one did not happen for ages. Then with a really short notice, one clicked a week back.

We were supposed to meet at Reclamation at 11pm. I started horribly late, picked up minimalist from Powai and was joined by Shenoy brothers in their Zukie. We did go through the new terminal at the airport and experienced the new SAR road. To avoid the jam due to flyover work on WEH, Akshay (minimalist) took us through Bandra internal roads. Me as well as Aditya were completely lost by the end of it.

By the time we reached, it was past 11:30pm and everybody was just rearing to go. Stopped just to say a quick hi to a few.

PlatzaTurbo's A4. Dippy was riding shotgun with him.

Yogi and wife.

ArunShekhar and cutie.

Ramie's Getz.

Rohan's 530D? A policeman shooing us away.
Fortnightly mini-meet : Mumbai BHPians-dsc_0936.jpg

We quickly started towards the Sea-link.

That's VVB just before the toll.
Fortnightly mini-meet : Mumbai BHPians-dsc_0939.jpg

The sea-link beautifully clicked by Akshay.
Fortnightly mini-meet : Mumbai BHPians-dsc_0947.jpg

A long straight.
Fortnightly mini-meet : Mumbai BHPians-dsc_0950.jpg

Practically drove in a convoy from Worli onwards till SoBo.
Fortnightly mini-meet : Mumbai BHPians-dsc_0953.jpg

Stickers everywhere.
Fortnightly mini-meet : Mumbai BHPians-dsc_0955.jpg

Saw a familiar Linea.
Fortnightly mini-meet : Mumbai BHPians-dsc_0968.jpg

That's Raj. He joined us for a drive barely 2 weeks after a surgery.
Fortnightly mini-meet : Mumbai BHPians-dsc_0961.jpg

The GT Tsi twins. Mango_pal and Esma1981.

A quick catch-up in front of VidhanBhavan to sort out a confusion about where to stop.
Fortnightly mini-meet : Mumbai BHPians-dsc_0983.jpg

Fortnightly mini-meet : Mumbai BHPians-dsc_0984.jpg

We all went to Horniman circle.
Fortnightly mini-meet : Mumbai BHPians-dsc_0992.jpg

The buildings in this part of the town are beautiful.
Fortnightly mini-meet : Mumbai BHPians-dsc_0996.jpg

Desmosedici dropped in to say hi.
Fortnightly mini-meet : Mumbai BHPians-dsc_1000.jpg

Akshay1234, Karan and a few more joined in. We realized that there is not enough space to line-up all cars.
Fortnightly mini-meet : Mumbai BHPians-dsc_1004.jpg

We moved to the next building, but this drunkard (the one on the left) was hell-bent on extracting some money from us and slept on the road just to block our perfect line-up. VVB tried to reason with him, but we asked him to let go. We somehow squeezed all cars in the remaining space.

re: Fortnightly mini-meet : Mumbai BHPians

Akshay1234, Desmo, Yogesh were getting late and left.

After some effort, we lined up the rest of the cars.

The DRLs on VVB's city stood out in the entire lineup.
Fortnightly mini-meet : Mumbai BHPians-dsc_1026.jpg

We moved to Ayub's around 1:30am.
Fortnightly mini-meet : Mumbai BHPians-dsc_1029.jpg

We dispersed around 2:30am. A few of us came back via the Eastern Freeway which was completely empty at that hour.

Here's the last pic.. when we stopped towards the end of the freeway. That's cartman almost hanging out of his car, a sight which is not really rare.
Fortnightly mini-meet : Mumbai BHPians-dsc_1039.jpg

Overall, had tremendous fun. Lets do this more often.

Powai Mini-Meet on 7th Mar 2013:

Yogesh had hinted about a big surprise in the next meet and all of us were eager to find out.

When I reached and parked, found nobody around.
Fortnightly mini-meet : Mumbai BHPians-dsc_1047.jpg

Then an Accord pulled over with a lot of familiar faces inside. So that was the surprise. Yogesh got an Accord!
Fortnightly mini-meet : Mumbai BHPians-dsc_1046.jpg

Nilesh, Yogesh, Swapnil, Aman.. and the Accord.
Fortnightly mini-meet : Mumbai BHPians-dsc_1044.jpg

Shenoy brothers and Akshay joined in.
Fortnightly mini-meet : Mumbai BHPians-dsc_1049.jpg

Arun in his trademark pose. See that yellow-plate Indica and its driver closely inspecting the front bumper? Ahem.
Fortnightly mini-meet : Mumbai BHPians-dsc_1051.jpg

A very tightly parked Fiesta.
Fortnightly mini-meet : Mumbai BHPians-dsc_1052.jpg

Yogi was kind enough to treat us with pizzas at a nearby place.
Fortnightly mini-meet : Mumbai BHPians-dsc_1056.jpg

That's me and Yogesh.

Back to the Accord.

The boot is so huge that it can easily swallow a couple of dead bodies.

Swaps and Akshay tested the rear-suspension as well.

Thanks for the report and pics Sanjay. To my bad luck, how much ever I tried, and even after strong persuasion by Aman and Varun, I still missed the Zombie Drive.

Hope I can make it for the next one. I guess I'll only have to plan one soon.

Nice stuff! I'll have to keep an eye on this thread for upcoming meets, especially Powai ones!

Off topic: how'd you guys like Papa Johns? I found them to be quite ordinary ages ago and have stayed away ever since.

Bicycle ride to 'town' - Sunday 9th Mar 2014

After the SGNP bicycle ride, we hadn't done a longish ride together. Did exactly that today morning. Dodge_Viper, AdiShenoy, SiddarthDeb, Sa_Kiran, minimalist, SDP and a couple of friends. Rode from Thane/Mulund to Gateway of India and then to Kyani near Metro. Cartman and PlatzaTurbo joined by car directly at Kyani.

Here are some pics from the day:

Started at 5:20am from Mulund.
6:15am: First break at Priyadarshni.

Adi seemed quite happy with the exchange.

Hmmm ...Kyani and Co. Long time since I had their mutton patties. Looking at all the biking shots reminded of the Himalayan momuntain biking expidition I am going to miss this year.
Being a relatively new member here, I hope to join these meets sometime soon with my friend Accius.
