Folks please don't take the Nerul flyover as there is a massive jam. Take the palm beach road instead.

Pune-Mumbai meet @ Mapro, Lonavala 19Feb



18 fantastic cars + 10 fantastic superbikes + 41 fantastic folks + 3 fantastic kids = a classical Team-BHP meet!

The moment this thread started rolling off on 30th January, quite a few jumped on it with enthusiasm. And the tribe grew steadily to the point where many like-minded people from the forum (and some off it, too) came together today morning, to have some great time!
The venue zeroed in was the tried and tested Mapro Garden, Lonavala restaurant - chosen due to lot of parking space available (our TBHP meets can have a seriously big convoy) and the excellent food available (pizzas, sandwiches, that yummy strawberry ice-cream topped milkshake, coffee et al), plus it serving as a nice median-distance rendezvous for Pune and Mumbai folks.

All of us started trickling in around 8.25-8.30 am at the restaurant from both Pune and Mumbai alike. And the moment people started parking, handshakes and introductions few thick and fast. Guess this meet was a long time coming!

Few pics for your viewing pleasure.

First up, the thundering yet beautiful superbikes raking in all the attention:-

Mumbai + Pune Meet | 19th February 2023 @ Mapro Lonavla-img_5338.jpg

You name a superbike - be it the Gixxer, the Ducati Multi , the Interceptor, the Super Meteor, the Duke 390 et al - you got to see one in the flesh today , an absolute joy on 2 -wheels:-

Mumbai + Pune Meet | 19th February 2023 @ Mapro Lonavla-img_5339.jpg

Everyone wanted to have a close look and click a pose on these magnificent machines:-

Next, the cars getting lined up:-

Yes sir, standing at attention:-

Ran out of space on the main rack, so some had to park along the side:-

And then some more:-

Mumbai + Pune Meet | 19th February 2023 @ Mapro Lonavla-img_5357.jpg

Such a myriad ensemble - the Hybrid City, the #Dark and the Kaziranga Harriers, the workhorse Swift, the classic Fabia, fiesty Polo & the Vento, the reliable Duster, the majestic Laura, the ubiquitous Creta and the Nexon EV, the mighty 530d, the super Mitsubishi Lancers and an A4 thrown in the mix!

Some special attention and love being showered on Navin_V8's Lancer:-

Mumbai + Pune Meet | 19th February 2023 @ Mapro Lonavla-img_5355.jpg

Special note: BHPian Jaisalmeriya's son also joined in the fun and impressed one and all by his ability to sound off and identify cars in a jiffy. By the way, his name has been recorded in the Indian Book of Records (IBR) for identifying the maximum number of cars when he was aged ~3 yrs (link):-

Mumbai + Pune Meet | 19th February 2023 @ Mapro Lonavla-img_5353.jpg

Will the forum witness another record by having his registration maybe in the near future at such a tender age?! I hope so.

Then, the customary Team-BHP family pic :-

(missed BHPian PSM_360 in this pic, guess he arrived bit later)

With all introductions over, time to head off to the restaurant:-

Mumbai + Pune Meet | 19th February 2023 @ Mapro Lonavla-img_5358.jpg

In the true spirit of family camaraderie, almost everyone got the food ordered in small groups so as to continue enjoying the food together and continue the car conversations

Never knew how time flew, couple of hours went by just like that - it was that great fun!

On the way back, few of us paid a visit to the walk-in store and got hold of some classic Mapro goodies:-

This being just my 2nd meet in the last 10 years, have to admit that such meets are a great place to share 'n' care for our loved ones (yes, the ones over here on the forum)! You get to learn and listen to, so much from your fellow BHPians and also exchange notes and anecdotes - like you can never do anywhere else.

Wishing more of us can meet ever more so often going ahead.

Quite easily, one of the best Sunday mornings that I had spent in a long time!

Requesting other folks to chime in with other pics that you may have clicked.

Re: Mumbai + Pune Meet | 19th February 2023 @ Mapro Lonavla

What an awesome meeting it was today. We were all talking about cars and motorcycles non-stop. The gleaming and well maintained cars/bikes in Mapro's parking lot represented the high standards of TeamBHP. Thank you all for the wonderful time. Truly well spent Sunday morning and sweet memories to cherish. I believe my Mitsubishi Lancer was the oldest of all the cars in the line up today. Here are a couple of random pics to feast your eyes on.

Thank you everyone for organizing the wonderful meet. A well-spent Sunday morning witnessing the thundering bikes and a variety of cars. It was my first Team-BHP meet. I met with like-minded, welcoming, knowledgeable automotive enthusiasts.

For some reason, I got a bit late and missed joining the team at the Pune gathering point, so went straight to the well-selected venue.

Grabbed a chance for a group pic later.

Thankfully, I got a good parking slot and my car (Mitsubishi Cedia Sports) got photographed along with other members' cars.

Re: Mumbai + Pune Meet | 19th February 2023 @ Mapro Lonavla

Wow, Wow, Wow! Amazing experience from my 1st Team-BHP meets and could not have been a Sunday better spent! All things to be loved - Cars, Car enthusiasts, lip-smacking food, and lots of car talk. A lot of conversations and quite a few insights.

I must say my boy got to experience the camaraderie of like-minded petrolheads for the first time today and was indulged by all the BHPians at the meet. Special mention to BHPian JoshMachine to let him experience his Audi A4 and BHPian navin_v8 to spark his inquisitiveness with his Lancer's open hood and the tech talk.

Adding some pix from the meet.

What an amazing meet it was! Got to meet so many new TBHPians and reconnect with the veterans post infamous pandemic.

Loved the passion for cars and bikes that is omnipresent whenever TBHPians meet. Lots of car and bike talks over overpriced but aromatic black coffee.

The meet was also useful in terms of gathering all the latest highway information.

Unfortunately, I couldn't click any pics but the line up was super impressive.

Looking forward to the next one!
