    Default The First Interstate KTM Exclusive Meet

    Hello Everyone,

    This is may not be the right forum for it, but over the past month, we have been working closely with KTM/Bajaj to try and organize the first Interstate KTM Exclusive Meet.

    I have decided to post here since we have an extremely large and active population of KTM owners in xBhp and we need some feedback from you guys to help us move forward. This is more for the southern region and we are targeting, Maharashtra, Karnataka, Kerala, Tamil Nadu, Andhra Pradesh and Telangana.

    We will try to have the meet at a location that is both scenic and not more than a day and a half ride from any of the above locations. To do this we need your feedback.

    - Would you travel 700-1000kms for a meet such as this?
    - Would you be willing to spend between 3-5k on stay and food (trying to get it subsidized)?
    - Is 2-3 days for an interstate meet good enough to meet and exchange stories with fellow KTM owners?
    - Are there any specific activities that you would like us to hold( track sessions, unfortunately will be out of the question due to budget constraints)?
    - Last of all if you are an administrator for your local KTM Owners group, would you be able to guarantee the participation of at least 10-15 owners?

    Moderators, please move or delete this thread if this is not the right forum for it.

    Looking forward to all of your feedback.

    Cheers,
    Pizzaboi aka The Fat Flash

    Approved and moved to G2G section!

    Keep 3 days as minimum. Since there would be the entire southern peninsula taking part, I guess 800-1000 kms should be the average distance figures for most. Also, it *may be* a rainy ride; so keep some time as buffer.

    Option #1 Mahabaleshwar


    Hyderabad- 591 kms
    Vijaywada - 883 kms
    Vizag- 1199 kms
    Bangalore - 783 kms
    Chennai - 1136 kms
    Coimbatore - 1046 kms
    Kochi - 1180 kms
    Pune - 120 kms

    We are looking for more options, also places that are no regular tourist destinations will be an added attraction.

    Hello there,

    We need to know how many riders are willing to make the ride, we have confirmation of 12 riders from Hyderabad and that's about it.

    You will be #13, so that should be lucky.

    Could you help me get in touch with the admin from Coimbatore, we will need their help

    Thanks in advance.

    Status is that KTM has backed out because of the massive logistics involved but I think we should be able to pull it off with a little planning. The guys from hyderabad refused to ride in the summer heat since a few of them ended up dehydrated last year. However first week of June should be cool. Amir nikam will be town this week, will catch up with him and discuss

    How about Hampi it is in centre of the map ll be almost equidistant from all places.
    Even Goa ll be good as everyone loves Goa. But too far for me from chennai.
