    Jeez!

    How many really are coming after all? This enthusiasm was lacking in earlier group meets.

    Way to go!

    The Same question right now in my mind...11th hour cancellation case are very common..now lets see finally how many are in

    Who is thinking to come lil late request to them please try to come by 5:30 am. We all are lazy to wake up at early morning but that is also u have to think guys event doesn't happen everyday......5:30 am is our meeting time and by 6 am we are leaving Cool Joint at any cost with present riders on the spot.....

    And strongly I wanna mention ..there should not b any show off things ......if total riders are finally 20 or lil more ..we will make two groups....One will lead one will tail....never ever try to overtake anyone...we have to remember we all are in a same group so no need to overtake my front rider ....especially never overtake the lead rider unless emergency case. Without shoes no one will b allowed. If anyone is not ready to follow rules and anything goes wrong with rules breaker no one will b responsible for that .......I know all of you are very sensible rider ...just for reminding ......

    Helmet must for pillion and rider both
    Without shoes no one is allowed
    Proper bike docs
    DL
    Jacket (any jacket)

    Hope everybody is comfortable with group riding rules

    So i'm back early. During the ride back from the dam to the maddur CCD, i managed to find a XXXL pothole about 4 feet inside the left edge. I stood up to lessen the impact but there was no way i could avoid it at such speeds, as I could have put other bikers on my right in danger. The result was a bent rim. Thanks to john, vicky, mithun, who promptly stopped at a turn ahead. I was given directions to AS auto service near Monotype Bus Stop, as they left for CCD and I had to return back, sadly, missing the second half of the G2G. As I reached AS, the service advisor there, Mr Rajesh, helped me out alot regarding what I had to do. He also told me that no other parts were damaged, front forks were fine, no fairing vibes, rear of the bike didn't take the maximum impact so everything was fine.

    Apparently, insurance coverage is full on metal/alloy parts, therefore, I wont have to shell out alot. So everything is in order. Tomorrow morning, first thing, I will call Bajaj Alliance and claim for insurance.

    This was my first XBhp G2G, and I am glad I got to meet everyone there. The group was large and it wasn't possible for everyone to stay together, therefore small groups were formed, but by and large, everyone was friendly. I have to mention though, on the way back from the dam, as soon as we hit the tarmac, going became a little crazy. A few riders had bursts of adrenaline, I think . And once we reached the main road, then saw some few aggressive overtaking maneuvers. As for me, I hit the ditch, and here I am back home posting in XBhp . No worries though, always a next G2G.

    Eagerly waiting for the pics, guys.

    P.S:- FZ was such a treat to my eyes.
