Sadly not, I think I posted a quick report elsewhere, but let me repeat by saying THANK YOU!!! My ride on the back of his bike through Bombay is something I will long remember! When your friend showed up at the Marriott with two helmets, a great feeling of fear swept over me. Riding through the streets of Mumbai on the back, weighing more than twice my generous host, was quite an experience. His hospitality to take me to his home for a delicious dinner was simply wonderful. I can not say enough of how touching it was for a complete stranger to come to my hotel, take me on his bike (despite my overloading the suspension), then treating me to a wonderful meal and discussion was honestly the best motorcycling experience in my life.

I greatly appreciate your generous emails and kind introduction. I want to come back and rent a bike if possible, but I must admit, the roads around Mumbai are the craziest I have ever seen (and I have seen quite a few). I completely regret getting no pictures, of my ride, but I have quite a few of the trip. Maybe I will post a couple of pictures of the traffic to give the folks here a sense of what "gridlock" really means!

Thanks again, and let me know when you will be in Vegas so I can return the kind hospitality!

Doc

Great pictures, but those seem to be Dehli area. Mumbai was not quite as "scenic"

Agreed. We have more exciting roads, though. "Scenic" was the road to Roha, but I think you had other things in your mind, such as chances of surviving the drive.

YES, the ride to Roha! I will long remember the most outrageous lane splitting in the World! Blind corners and high speed, wrong side of the road, monkeys, WOW!

Thanks again guys!
