India on a Royal Enfield Bullet

I went on a one month ride in India. Staring in Mumbai we did a 4500 km ride of central and south west India.
We made a lot of mistakes even got involved in a crash. If anyone considers a ride in India have a look at my blog. I have tips for bikers in India, Video and Pics.

helga is in puik kondisie....fabulous bike, het vir Plaasmeisie aangeskaf ook, sy is bietjie meer ongeskik as helga....XT660 Yamaha....
het die kanale gaan ry nou die dag in die modder met a paar WD en het grond gekoop langs a treinspoor...so ek ry nie tot in Julie, wanneer ek volledig hersteld is nie....
Kom gerus na die Limpopo bash, ChrissieB sal ook daar wees met haar AT...baie AT's hier...einde van die maand.

Great trip Herm. India's on my bucket list. Was planning to do it with an Indian couple next year. Trying to get him back onto a bike. This could be a good way to do it. Not sure if his wife agrees. Got some more spade work work to do.
