    Default Bun Burner Attempt by Sunil Kapoor...

    Sunil Kapoor, aka sportyguysunny on xBhp, who attempted and succeeded on doing the saddle sore in 2008, though uncertified, which was documented by him on the "older" xBhp, has this morning, Monday, the 1st of June, 2009, left at 0612 hours from Dhaula Kuan, New Delhi to try and do the Bun Burner and if possible surpass it! He has left on the NH8. I met him on the HP petrol bunk at 0545hours, filled up and signed the witness form. There were two places for the witness to fill up. I had called up a few xBhp members to come as witnesses.

    While he paid with his card, the receipt showed 0605hours as the time. My watch showed 0610 hours. 2 minutes later he was off. I wish him all the best.

    Some photographs from this morning...







    Filling 'er up!


    This is going to be fun


    Console Check


    All Set


    I accompanied the young man for 10 odd kilometres to see him off till Gurgaon, just tailing him. It was fun to see him go. It got me excited and I felt like continuing with him all the way! But I let him go and took my turn left towards home. As and when the updates come along from him, I will try to post them here.

    Default Lates Update!

    Latest Update

    Sunil Kapoor just called up at 1033hours. He called from Naseerabad. Naseerabad is on the 4 Lane highway between Kishangarh and Chittorgarh after the GVK Expressway. He has done 382 kilometres so far. You guys calculate the average speed. He has stopped to grab a quick bite. So far so good. He is running fine. Bike is consuming a lot of gas it seems.
