All I can do is try to imagine what you experienced today, and I confident that my imagination is falling well short of your actual experience!
Thanks for the ride!

Wow, you guys are really making good time!

Looks like you picked a beautiful day to cross the Rhotang La. For those who don't know, "Rhotang" means "pile of corpses" in Tibetan.

Didn't now that!

Great day to cross that pass. The views are stunning!
That pass looks great from a distance... you can follow the road on and on and on if you really look at that picture.

Better than TV

It is incredible to follow this ride. Thanks to all who have posted the additional historical and other information. The photos are amazing. Be safe. Hope you figure out why your bike is using so much fuel.....

You live in Cape Town? You should ride there. Or fly there and get an Enfield and ride it home

Looking at your SPOT Tracker and the direction you are headed, I keep wondering how often this has run through your head in the past couple of days...
