      Please share what you mentioned you would.
      Advice is a form of nostalgia.
      Dispensing it is a way of fishing the past from the disposal, wiping it off, painting over the ugly parts and recycling it for more than it's worth.

          Sorry. Just logged in after over 5 weeks. Lots of backlog pending on xBhp. Will try to look into this as soon as the backlog is over!
          The Wheel was a great invention; Two Wheels with a Motor in between was even better!

                      Very well done by both of them. All photographs are really very nice, it gives me immense pleasure after having through on such photographs. Selection of background is also very good.
                      All i can say a very rememberable tour to both the tourers, pleasent to listen & seeing for all of us.


                      Thanks

                      Fabulous beginning to a much anticipated thread. If this is what the quality of the write-up and photography is already, right at the very beginning of this journey, I can only imagine what is yet to come.

                      You're photography is definitely getting better in leaps and bounds, as the days go by. I've noticed something slightly bothersome about photography during long bike tours. Despite the numerous photo opportunities, the amazing locales and the pre-planning and enthusiasm, taking good quality photos become extremely difficult during arduous and lengthy travels on 2 wheels, firstly because stopping to take photos takes away a lot of valuable travel time, and secondly, after a very tiring ride stretching upto 10-12 hours, the exhausted body and mind find it difficult to cope with going that extra mile to capture and focus for good photography. Hats off to seasoned tourers like you and many others, who seem to perform majestically on the photography front too, after a long and tiring ride! Am yet to figure out a solution to this, as far as my tours and photography goes.

                      Brigitte sure is a brave soul. To have travelled all alone to India, and that too for this tough ride to the Himalayas, it sure takes a lot more than just enthusiasm and passion. And as always, Mael is a pro. Being pillion for such long stretches demands patience and skill of a different class, and a pat on the back to him too.

                      Anyway, hope the updates come fast and in plenty. Cant wait to know what happened next...

                      • Excellent narrative and amazing photography ! Some people " live" their life and others run through it . Its pretty evident that you are one among the "some people" and not "the others". Hats off to you for that.

                          • Hi Ken,
                            Wonderful log of your trip. Very well written with great photographs. It felt like I was reading a film script. 'Great Motorcycle Diaries'.
                            Thank you for your effort and great inspiration.

                              • This is indeed a lovely writeup of a perfect roadtrip. The pics r some of the best I have seen and ur writeup actually made me feel ur trip.
                                Its been a long overdue dream of mine to take atleast 1 such ride with my wife as my riding partner.
                                Great ride ken and even better reporting.... Cheers.
                                Its Not the number of Pistons U ride, Its the size of the Piston that matters.
