6 September 2010. On our return journey, we were overtaken by a M'lore - B'lore KSRTC Airavat Volvo B7R that just went over the horribly bad roads in the Shiradi Ghat Section as if the potholes didn't exist! This is a compilation of several videos taken during the 'chase'. Enjoy the superb sounds from the 6-cylinder engined monster and the best-looking state transport bus in the country!
