Good luck and have fun, guys! You're providing me with some ideas of my own re: charity touring.
SgtMike, welcome to this part of the world. Drop me a PM when you are here. Maybe will join up. Will end up meeting CJ too.
Chander, nice nickname u got there man. Let's meet. I have relocated to New Delhi . Will drop you a PM.
Final prep is underway. Going through the bags tonight, stuffing gear, clothes, cameras, books, sorting it all out. Carry on will include electronics and Helmet - pray they don't lose my bag, it's only one connection!
Pics to post later this evening.
Have great, safe trip SgtMike. I'll be following this one for sure!
Have a great trip!
I'm @ Rocky River Rd & 485. If you need me to run you out any last minute "shit I wish I had a ___" let me know
Game time, Green flag, Go for Launch!!!! Going to Charlotte Douglas International Airport tomorrow, flight leaves at 3!!!
I'll update upon arrival, pics will be taken from here on out.
Here are just a few of the books donated so far. Thanks ZeRedBaron, and Matt H. for helping out. Not all books will make this trip. The balance will be sent in post for upcoming rides.
I'm leavin', on a jet plane. (I know when) I'll be back again...
You wouldn't believe how much stuff is in these bags. I think I'm under 50 lbs, Continental allows 2 checked bags, with my carry on - I gots alot o'crap!
My pleasure Mike
Thanks everyone for helping out.
So kool. Cant wait to see u here Mike.
Your bike will be here today and make sure you get all the sleep you need on the plane because we'll running a lot of errands when you land.
Picked him up a couple of hours ago and now with a belly full of indian curry, we are hitting the sack.
Awesome trip Mike!
Just remember, eat with and gesture toward someone with your RIGHT hand only. The left is traditionally used for something else. AMHIK.
Phew! I found this just in time! Can't wait for the RR. My wife and I went to visit CJ and Richa in December. Then we rented an Enfield in Pushcar and rode around Rajasthan.
Dude, the road between Manali and Srinagar, via Leh will turn you into a different person- you will never be the same again. That road will ruin you for all other roads for the rest of your life. Well, I haven't seen it in 19 years but still. Take LOTS of pics for us!
CJ and Richa, you should take him to the place you brought us with the water and sound show. That place was amazing.
Hey this guy should be in town while you are: http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=460631 (that's one of my more favoriter RRs).
Any pete, i've been waiting for the postman to arrive in delhi for sometime but he's stuck on cannabis drinks in banaras jk
He should be in town when we get back :)
So when you are on a riding trip, what do you first thing after you wake up.............................yup, Ride the Bike !!
Away he takes her
Thats a happy camper
Just got back from the shop !
Getting Mikes bike fixed
Only a tank needs to be placed and the bikes ready !!
ps I like the NGATT setup with the Snell approved flip flops. He and the stoned Postman will get along fine.
This trip has been just what I was looking for. To experience a place like India has always been a dream, something an average guy like me just doesn't do. I've only been here a couple days and it has been more than I expected, in a GOOD way! The deep cultural heritage, the traffic jams, the people, the food, an absolutely amazing experience. The warnings about riding in Delhi were spot on. I have found it o be a "cooperation" of people, versus the rigid structure in the US. Everyone here has an understanding that we are all together, got to make room 'cause there's no more room! About the only thing you adhere to are stop lights. Lanes, speed, direction... usually depends on volume and diversity. Everything from push carts, to drawn carriages, o cars, trucks, bikes, scooters, people, animals... all vying for space - and getting it.
I thought I was prepared for the heat as well. Shoulda hit the sauna alot to prep better. Drinking alot helps, and the mountains will be MUCH cooler.
Leaving EARLY tomorrow for Minali and the hills. Pics coming, thanks all for checking out the report, the best is yet to come!
OK, we're off
Seeya guys in 15 days !
