    It is one of the days when nothin goes right in the beginning and then suddenly everything is perfect for the rest of the day, even if nothing goes according to the plan!

    For starters the droput percentage was 66%~ simply because we didnt confirm anybody who wre registered previously for 5th June.

    So we met at 7.45 am ay the Radisson Petrol Pumps planned. First I went to meet reDevil, shantoo, nishu and Gaurav ( cbr1100 blackbird ) at south extension Planet M, then we all progressed to raddison. Prince ( fazer600 ) was also there, in total there were 5 karizmas, 1 rx135 ported, 2 SBKs.

    After chatting etc and brooding briefly over the high dropout rate of karizmas, the 5 karizmas went on the way. One more karizma dropped out mid way. So we were four left :

    1.Sunny ( black zma )
    2.redevil ( yellow zma )
    3.honda_rr ( red zma )
    4.black zma ( vishal )

    We proceeded to dharuhera plant, on the way we stopped at the gurgaon HH plant and returned from outside after a quick look at their periphery.


    The the magic of a long drive started to work on us. Not only did we forget the high dropout rate, but we enjoyed ourselves thouroughly unlike ever before. The highway was very sparsely crowded and was devoid of any bumps.

    I dont know how to say this but I guess I will stand by the truth ( what i see and experience ), my zma actually touched 140 on the speedo today! It actually did. No incline, no in-direction wind. I did croutch behind the fairing to minmise air drag. Nothing to help except international class unending highways with almost no traffic. I had never was able to go beyond the 125kmph mark on speed o on my zma. The difference was the roads, clutjcless upshifting of gears, redlining the bike in each gear. belive me I myself was against honda_rr strongly when he said that he touched 140! But i had to bow to him today two times. One when he zoomed past me when i was carrying a pillion a 122kmph. honda_rr must be at least 135 at the time, he really had high relative speed as compared to my speed ( 122 ) . and secondly, when i touched 140 alone. I was ecstatic!

    Not only me, reddevil also claimed to touch 140, vishal 138.

    On our next Zma only meet, i will change my sprocket for top speed.

    We stopped at many places on the highway for pics.

    The we went to dharuhera plant and guess what HH unon were goin on, and most people were absent.!! Still on of the officials met us but absolutely refused to share any kinda info. Anyway we werent too much interested in the plant visit at the point of time, we just wanted to go and enjoy another does of highway drags and overtaking.

    And so we did. we went to rewari too ( 85~kms from delhi ), we stopped at a road side dhabha and enjoyed ourselves. This was one meet which i will never forget.

    We were just speculating, people were really amazed watching 4 zmas zoom past them at 130 speeds one after another - Imagine what even 15 zmas together on the roads can do! That of course is totally achievable if meets are not postponed and people are taught to accept that they cannot come ( someshKumarSharma, buddy, do u get my point? ) and not waste other people's time.

    What was the aim of this meet?

    Simple : To see at least 30 zmas riding together on delhi roads. And that will happen. Says Sunny.

    Will make a post containing flyers etc. explaining about the All India Karizma Club.

    I'm sure u guys must have had a super wunnerful time. Depressing that none of the questions were answered, but what the heck, ultimately, it's the trip that matters. tHE Zmas in a line really looked awesome. Real sad that I missed out, but as I said, gimme a few days and then I'll be there with u guys on every occasion, even if others give it a miss. But sunny, how come such a low percentage of riders turned up. I mean, out of eighteen, only five were present. This really is disheartening. Anyways, envious congratulations on your superbly exciting trip, and for the safe journey. (You + the poor people who must have had a heart attack seeing the awesome Zmas at such boggling speeds. ) Two Thumbs Up Man.
