@raj style and @ Mag thnx for organizing and it was one helluva nice meet !

The roads were good the food was good the jokes hilarious although most of them were at the expense of good 'ol Mag.

The climate on top of Nandi Hills was very very nice , never seen Nandi hills like this except in peak winter or very early mornings. The drives up and down the Ghat section were smooth and incident free. Loved the discussions.

While returning me and Physco ran into a Safari doing in excess of 140 KMPH and actively bullying other cars off the road. the vehicle was almost toppliing over when being pushed to cut across lanes . I guess we did floor it a bit to get in front of the Safari after that.

Wow @ akroy and Rudraji thats a close shave , good that nothing happened.

Now i guess the wait for the pictures begins !

Default aaargh lost the group!

aaargh sorry guys,

I managed to start in front of mclaren but somehow was driving slow and got lost behind a truck! Post realisation and franatic calls to BlueRaven, Benny and Riju, was on the right roads.

Lost lots of time stopping and attending calls from wifey, who claimed the electricity at home was behaving funny, tripping very often. Despite my efforts to calm her down and the zeal to catch up with You guys, I missed the road to Woodrich (oh not again) and ended up taking the road to Nandi Hills.

After realising this, got the right lead and was heading to Woodrich when i heard the mains at home was fuming! I had to return back home disappointed. (was never with the group anyway, am so stupid!!!)

TChau,
+Rocky_Balboa+
PS: The tripper at home had gone kaput resulting in main switch being burnt-off. No idea how it escaped the fuse, now everythings back to normal.

Hi All,

It was fun meet....

saw a Porsche early in the morning who was blasting while we were waiting for others to reach the mall.

Jays Zonda - You have to sit in this car to feel the speed. Initial pickup is very good and scary part is the handling. Enjoyed the drive with jay.

Hellstar Verna - I liked hellstars verna for its pickup and for fuel efficiency.
He says he has done around 900 kms in a full tank of fuel... i was surpriced as i do 450km for a full tank in my ikon 1.6nxt. loved the car...

Thanks to Riju & Mag for organising the fun event.

Riju explains consquences of not paying up

That was a long walk, look like the regenerative process worked overtime. Lots of lamp posts in the neighbourhood?

Default Was one helluva meet..

Many thanks to Maggie and Rijju for organizing the meet.. Well worth the terrible access road + dropped bike + broken lever + useless forearms in the night..

For me personally it was great fun riding wide open throttle .. ..

Really hectic office today. Will be putting up a hard-balled report within the day. Ajmat might yet be protected since he ate 2 round objects yday and therefore should not need an abdomen guard today for when the report hits.
