Hey Guys,

Hope everyone doing good... Its been almost 4 months since I left Charlotte and moved back to India. Have been busy here with my Royal Enfield Bullet clubs. But I still missing the gtg at Hawthorne n the ADV rides.

Here are couple of videos from the recent ride we did in South India. Its bit long but u'll get an idea about the roads in India.

Planning to ride the Himalayas this year from July 20-Aug 6th. Will be covering Marsimek La and Khardung La which are the world's highest Motorable roads at 18600 ft above sea level.

Will keep you guys posted.

Cheers!!
Bharath

Was a good ride. Nice to get out during the week even if its only for a couple of hours. We need to do it on a more regular basis! I'll let you know about Tuesday as soon as I figure out my work schedual.

Any riding planned for Sunday the 27th? I'll be in Charlotte for the weekend and will have some time Sunday morning, maybe early afternoon to do some riding. Probably need to be done by 2 or 3pm though.

How about this weekend? I'm thinking of hitting Carolina Adventure World in Chester SC on Saturday. Its about 30-40 mins south of Charlotte. $25 for all day riding in the dirt. Going to see some family Sat night and then eventually heading back Sunday at some point. So Sunday is fairly wide open in Charlotte right now!

I always liked this place for pics...



Otherwise, I would suggest following secondary roads - I've never had trouble finding some interesting places along Rt. 27 near Mt. Holly and from Mt. Holly towards Iron Station, for example...

Cool. My RT is in the process of being taken apart to remove what MUST be 10 pounds of Mexican dirt and dust that found it's way into places that would astonish you...but I digress... I'll probably get up there for lunch, driving the cage and toting the wife along.

Damn! I would have ditched the fairly lame harley ride I went on in Columbia and come up early to check that out! Oh well, If anyone is thinking about riding tomorrow during the day. Let me know!

BOIKE333, I doubt I will still be around at 6pm. Need to get back to Columbia and get sitchiated for the upcoming work week. We'll make it happen one weekend!

Jesse
