We had a drive this morning on the airport road. We planned to meet up at 7.30 a.m., but the rains started at 6.00 a.m. The bikers sadly had to dropout due to the rains.

The rains did not dampen the spirits of the others. The passion runs deep and rain or sunshine it is a GO! Today's drive was more than 100 kms.

Great to see these cars out. The minx used to belong to Kavery Pickles if I am correct. It used to lurk around Richards Town

Bhpians Bulletboy and Srinand did a quick dash to Nandi Hills last morning. They were part of another local drive and they just extended it to make most of the morning run

On Sunday there was a quick drive to Bhoga Nadeeshwara Temple and then to Sir M Visvesvaraya Museum at his birthplace, Muddenahalli.

We gathered on airport road near GKVK

Bhoga Nandeeshwara Temple (Kannada: ಭೋಗ ನಂದೀಶ್ವರ ದೇವಾಲಯ) (also spelt "Bhoga Nandishwara" or "Bhoga Nandishvara") is a Hindu temple located in Nandi village, at the base of Nandi Hills (or Nandidurga) in the Chikkaballapur district of Karnataka state, India. It is dedicated to the Hindu god Shiva.

The original temple in the complex, identified as one of the oldest temples of Karnataka, dates back to the early 9th century.....
