    Default Day 14 & 15: Bangalore

    Since the team had reached Bangalore late on a Thursday evening it was impossible to have a meet on Friday. So Friday was a day spent in the confines of the hotel room completing a host of tasks that had been kept pending for the previous few days. A full day of work with zero kilometres ridden was appreciated and enjoyed by the team, as sometimes sitting working at a desk can be a luxury! In the evening a few guys from the xBhp Bangalore came over to help the team put the final touches of preparation for the meet the next day. Suvrajit, Sauban, Uddipan, Sanjoy and Ashish had taken time out to visit the team.

    The next morning it was time to ride with the bikers of Bangalore. The meeting point was Khodays Breweries on Kanakapura Road. Sanjoy and Sunil led the team from the hotel to the meeting point from where everybody got onto the NICE road. Where doing a group ride in proper formation is much easier than the busy city streets of Bangalore. After a reasonably long ride the group of bikers arrived at Hotel Ramee Guestline for the G2G. More than 100 bikers were present at the venue, most had ridden in with the team, while the rest came straight to the hotel. Present at the venue were the xBhp Bangalore Chapter, Bangalore Bikers, Yamaha Riders Club, Born Riders, Bangalore RD350 Club and Naked Wolves among others. All these clubs were thanked for their immense contribution to the cause of motorcycling in the country and presented with a Bundle of Thanks. CS Santosh, Rohit Giri and R Chakravarthy, were also thanked individually for having helped shape the image of motorcycling in the country. Santosh was not present and therefore dropped in to meet the team later in the day.

    xBhpians of Bangalore were also thanked for invaluable contribution to the community, there were some old timers and many of the younger generation who had kick-started the chapter. Akhil, Praful, Phanikar, Srikeerthi, Sunil, Praveen, Juliana and Ravi were thanked for being an inspiration to a host of motorcyclists over the years. Suvrajit, Saquib, Divya, Uddipan, Sanjoy, Ashish were the guys from the younger lot who have been instrumental in reviving the rather dormant chapter of the city. Without these pillars of support and strength the community couldnt possibly grow to be what it is today!

    But the fun was not over, as the xBhp Bangalore Chapter had a surprise planned for the team, they had designed and printed a wonderful poster with all the members of the team made to look like Bollywood superstars! A special thanks to Sauban for creating this awesome poster!

    The meet was followed up with lunch with the Bangalore xBhpians as the team then headed back to the hotel, where CS Santosh dropped in to say a quick hello. It was an early night for the team, as the next day promised a ride to Hyderabad a good 550 km away.

    It was great to catch up with a lot of the junta, especially the core xBhp team and old timers.

    It was great to see the enthusiasm and zeal of the new Bangalore xBhp folks who've kept the fire alive. Reminded me a lot of my time from back 2008-2011

    Ride Safe, Ride Long...
