    The point of ISG2G is to ride with friends, meet with fellow brothers from other states, hang out, share stories and ride back.

    Destination is important in that, it should not be too crowded, weather should be pleasant, accommodating large group of people + bikes (parking space) should be possible, and the distance for one of the states should not be so much that by the time the group reaches the hotel every one is dog tired.

    Yes seasoned riders can ride 1000+ kms in a day on small capacity bikes. But riding 700 kms alone (or 2-3 riders) and riding 700 kms with a group are two very very different things.

    So I am a bit disappointed that Varkala was not included - but the reasons are good. And Kuttikkanam is looking beautiful on google images. So I am pretty excited...!!

    Personally I am good with any and every decision Phanikar of Praful make - distance, destination, accommodation whatever. And Kochu - that design is awesome, definitely buying the T shirt even if for some reason I cant make it to the G2G :P
    Hey mate, great to see you here. Let's hope we get to meet this time. Last time was a close call..!!

    it has already started raining here... will be worse in september. so maybe oct-nov can be good. rains are bad for group rides na??
    I'm a responsible rider.It doesn't matter what you ride,but what matters is how you ride.

    Depends a lot on comfort zone of the riders, I for one love rain rides, it is always much cooler and better.
    But in group rides rain rides means more chances of slight mishaps like slipping and skidding and stuff like that. A very proper riding formation helps clear that to a extend. Then it's kerala roads, the element of risk is natural, especially in ghats.

    Have voted for Dates as well as location.

    Going through the posts I agree that Varkala would sure be a very good location but considering this to be a g2g of a very large group as always and the distance for the TN and KA riders will be too much to cover for a one day event.

    I remember leading the KL team from Coimbatore during the ISG2G in Yercaud and the kind of trouble they faced and the stress they went thru to make it to Yercaud.
    Reaching late night they simply went off to sleep and a few riders did not even eat their dinner and next morning too they were hardly able to come for the Photo shoot and again left early noon to ride back home.

    It really had taken a toll on them.

    It would surely help if the organizing team decide on a place which is easier to ride, reach on time and spend some quality time with other state teams. My suggestion is that the state heads take an internal poll and post collective result about the destination and then the organizing committee can declare the place over here.

    Just a suggestion.

    As for Coimbatore team which would consist of approx 10 members there are only 4 nos of Four Strokes and the majority is of Two strokes, Longer distances in travelling and not getting enough time to spend or rest is going to reduce the turn out from the Coimbatore team at least.

    Hoping for the best

    Cheers

    Spot on @Josh .Even though the ride to Yercaud was one of the best,riding such distances in a space of just 3 days is something i wouldn't recommend,we need to consider our fellow 2 stokers(even though most of their rides are in better shape than some 4s'ers ) and also newbies to long distance riding.It will sound exciting but only once you start riding you realize how to fatigue is going to take a toll on you.

    Nice t- shirt design kochu.

    I second what @JOSH5898 has said. I wouldn't mind riding 700+kms as an individual or with 4-5 ppl. But with a large group that will be tough to handle. We would only get a half day or so to meet and interact with the riders from the other states if the travel time is too much. Personally I feel varkala can't handle 100+ bikers.


    PS: I was out of town for a week so couldnt reply to few posts, also I have never worked in Bangalore or been a part of the bangalore chapter. :-D

    We are working on Tshirt colour possibilities. We will consider different factors like design suitability, riders choices and cost. Then we will come up with a single final available colour.
    Please remember that we cannot have all colours printed and I request all to accommodate our thought out decision.

    Thanks

    Kerala Team, can you please draw out the timelines for for each tasks?

    Last date for polling and destination
    Head count
    Resort options
    Tee shirt costing
    Budgeting

    Also it would be nice to give a presentation for newbies on touring etiquette and where to start. We can volunteer our own riders to share ideas and thoughts in a proper forum that would benefit many.

    Guys, pour in your thoughts to make this meet just more enjoyable one.
