    Dear Friends.
    I am new to this forum the reason i joined this forum is to learn from riders across World as they say all are blessed with something special by god.my hunger to travel got me a royal enfield bike the fun is i bought i before i know how to ride it.:rofl .i know its sounds crazy but i was never a bike guy then one day something struck me very hard which made to travel.i don't want to make you sleepy.the reason i came here to share my experience of travel across India for 90days completing 15000km and travelling almost all terrains going through all kind of weather in 3 months.as my wish is to travel across world on two wheeler i know its difficult task and require lot of money but as they say if there is a will there is a way.i have stared posting my experience on my website which is attached to blog as fellow riders suggested me to write down so that the aspiring travelers learn from it.if i can ask the permission of mod to either post the link to my blog or website or shall i write the experience here in this forum.

    You can certainly post images!

    Here are instructions: Link

    I read your blog, I quote a piece here:

    "our first destination was nearest beer shop,sorry to involved driniking and riding but a beer in 40+ temp will not harm much.we are sitting at road side small beer shop and came to know that this is how beer sold on highways as there were very few as called beer bars you will find on highways.we hit the road again after a chilled beer each and trust me it was refreshing,i am not looking to go away for heat as i know the time i have sellected will give me chance to see all India but again will bless me with all weather also.our next stop was 10 km from the beer shop at some resort at dowaba(kindly correct me if place name is not correct),agian ordered beer and few snacks and started after an hour towards agra.evening spent at a lodge by name Balwant lodge good clean place with coolers i guess enough for travelers coming from 45 degrees hot weather.the day ended with few chilled beers beef kabas and mutton biryani from nai ki mandi."

    Sounds good, post more! :beer

    vey nice Devgun... I was always wondering about riding in India. You see all kinds, and I mean ALL kinds, of different ways of riding. Helmets, no helmets, flip flops, 5 kids, 10 chickens etc etc. You get the picture. ARE there ANY rules out there?
    Safe travels and tell us about all the good beers you tasted, maybe any Belgium Trappist. :D

    Yes rules are there....but following depend upon the rider..:rofl ....As per positives India is only country u can find change in language,water taste,food style every 100km of travel....you can experience all types of weather...sure will tell you about food and beer....as per serious touring guys is concerned they are very particular about safety and rules that i guess more important to know..come to India will make sure ...u have beer and curries...off course travel by two wheeler if u can take it ..:p

    Thank you gawka69 and mav1234..i am glad you like story though it was all about food and beer till now...i am sure my travel will give people different perspective to see India ...and travel here is not at all problem if you have friends.i traveled across India without knowing anybody but slowly by gods grace and bullet community help me out and it was great experience when you see people you never met before they wait at the highway to receive you at night 2 so that u don't end up lost.though you can relate lot of negatives to India..i dont say no to it all have but always try to see the glass half full se the postives also...and come and travel to India.i will make sure no problem u will face by gods grace.:freaky..provided you love beer and food...:p
