    Been riding India...



    Hey folks,

    Well I have been away for a while, working in the middle east and then went to India for three months. Bought a Royal Enfield and went from the southern tip, up into Goa then inland to Hampi then back south.
    Incredible biking.

    I hope these pics come out, first time posting pics.

    The police pulled me for no lid, so after placing my cap on my head I was allowed to continue...

    I am organizing a longer (distance) trip over 40 days, at the end of the year. But this time heading all the way up into Tibet.

    Flick.

    Had a steep fine of 100 ruppes, which is a whopping 70 pence... three good meals basically.

    He wrote out a ticket too, which I have kept and am getting framed too add to the collection....

    Wink Velcome back

    Vell, Velcome back mister Flick.
    I have only ridden pillion on the back of a honda Hero throught the streets of Panipat, needed a charger for my phone and did not feel I could trust the bloke to take my mobile to the shop to find a suitable charger so jumped on the back of his Honda Hero (and to be honest it was scarier than any other bike riding I have done). If the sprag on the mille is gone the one from a ducati monster fits and is half the price. I have the part number somewhere.
