After our last meet at Mainak da’s place we had hardly caught up and it was time to plan another meet. The good thing about this time’s meet however was that, unlike last few successful and couple of unsuccessful planning attempts, the gap between planning and materializing was very small. It was just a couple of days between planning and the meet which was fantastic given our group’s previous record 😉 .
Another good thing this time around was that, even though couple of people pulled out at the last moment, the head-count was better than the last time.
About the meeting venue, as always, everybody wanted to drive or ride a bit before actually getting to the meet and hence, the venue was decided somewhere on the Hosur road, outside the city. As always, the ever-dependable Praveen bhai took care of finalizing the venue and made sure no one lost their way to it.
This was the first meet for Nitin who had recently moved here from Mumbai and had not met any other BCMTian from Bangalore other than me. Unexpectedly, he reached the venue before anybody else followed by Sudhir & his friend Shahnawaz while I and Ruchi were almost the last ones to reach. Damn the Bangalore traffic!!
Meeting like-minded people is always great fun and this time as well, it was no different. Ruchi too seemed to have enjoyed the people about whom she had only heard until now.
Few good pointers about an outing in one of the coming weekends and getting some merchandise came up and we have already started working on that.
After some nice food, a lot of bakar and checking Kaushik da’s new riding gears, we started back by 10.30 PM.
