Then, the customary Team-BHP family pic :-
(missed BHPian PSM_360 in this pic, guess he arrived bit later)

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)!
Requesting other folks to chime in with other pics that you may have clicked.
We also missed BHPian waspune in the group pic, he was late too. He can be seen on his red BMW G310R motorbike in the ride out video shared by PSM_360.

JoshMachine, I'm feeling privileged that I was part of both the meets!
Let's meet more often so that you keep recognizing me

Here are some photos and videos from my side.
Thanks man for the bike ride out video. I missed checking out the Lancers in person.

Very cheerful kids, gives me motivation to bring my daughter on some meet!

One of the attractions for the biker folks was the Super Meteor 650 of the super lucky owner prayaglele

SM650 felt much relaxed than my Interceptor, I took a spin in the parking lot!

Nice meeting you Mumbai riders! Cheers to your spirit for the return leg under the sun and in the Mumbai traffic. Hope you had enough strawberry milkshakes.

Dhruv Shetty - next meet, bring your Inty 650
TheDarkKnight - Nice meeting you, we should have clicked twinning pics of our same riding boots!

On the way back to Pune, 4 out of 6 bikes were red!

It always feels great to meet crazy petrolheads which gives one the assurance that we're not alone!
Till we meet again, let the craziness prevail.

Cheers,

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

Nice pics guys. Looks like a great meetup.

Is that red Honda a VFR 1200? That's quite a rare beauty if that's the case - was perhaps the first DCT that Honda ever brought to India. I recall seeing it at their Mumbai showroom years ago when it was somewhere on that saki naka / marol road. I don't know that area too well but somewhere there. Still remember the sales guy then was a guy called Partho or similar.

Got your pm Sir,

Feeling extremely sad I couldn't join. Next time I will make sure I can.

Awesome pics as seen above.

Navin Sir, we could have gone together too.

I am sure you all must have had immense fun meeting like minded T-Bhipan's from the forum and their rides.

Surely! But nothing of that age showed given the very good care that you have been providing.

Special thanks to you, since it was you who initiated the meet discussion few weeks ago!

Grabbed a chance for a group pic later.

Thanks for posting additional pics and the video. Your Cedia Sports was amazing and looked like it can give quite a few, a run for their money!

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.
Thanks, your son deserves all the praise he is getting. Its a rare gift to have at his age, something that we BHPians can appreciate a lot
I believe with some curated access and guidance from you, he could well be on this forum in the near future!

That indeed is my VFR1200F DCT. I too remember meeting Partho at the Honda showroom in Sakinaka back in the day

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

My first Team-BHP meet was a great experience riding along with the Bhpians and hoping to have longer rides along with yall.

As I am not supported by my parents to ride a bike for long distances I rent out various bikes and have a blast of a time.

This time I was on a TVS Apache RR310 along with my friends on RE Himalayan and a Gixxer.

Lovely photos guys ! Really wished I could have made it considering Lonavala is barely an hours away from Navi Mumbai :(

But loved the photos. My eyes immediately went to that beautiful Honda VFR1200 ! Have yet to see one in the flesh.

Nice pics! I would've definitely made it had I seen the thread��. Maybe next time. Is the meet held around the same time every year? Or does it happen multiple times?

Looks like an amazing meet. Unfortunately I had to drop out due to personal reasons. Mapro seems to be a go to for all Mumbai - Pune meets. 28 vehicles are surely a good number, but I am sure the participants would have doubled (or tripled) if the stars of the show (GTO, Karan and the likes) came up like 2020 meet
