    It started with a comment that's true, but I don't remember saying, "I've always wanted to go to India"

    "Hey Bill, wanna come to India?

    Oh man!!!

    Sooo jealous;) You guys gonna have fun... Brings back lotsa memories... Done the Manali - Leh, and Shimla - Leh (via Spiti) - Srinigar a few times, on a bicycle, bus and in a jeep... Never on a motorbike, that's the one mode of transport I still want and need to do in north of India... Met many guys doing it on Enfields, was always intrigued and promised myself that one day, one day, I will do it, too;) Hahaha... SUBSCRIBED!!!

    Have fun out there and can't wait on your updates;)

    I'm sure you are up-to-date regarding road conditions and openings to Ladakh but here is one more site to keep track. Has the latest info:

    http://www.indiamike.com/india/lada...onditions-latest-reports-hp-ladakh-t12491/88/

    As of right now the road to Leh is open through Kashmir via Srinigar and the Manali to Leh road is open up to Kyelong. That section usually opens all the way to Leh in the first or second week of June;)

    Passing it in the first few days after the road opening is going to make for EPIC pictures!!!

    PS: Oh, and bring some Diamox for AMS, just in case;) It's cheap in India.

    So, I'm standing in line at Travisa, and I look at this place the Indian embassy outsources all of its visa processing to...staffed completely (to what I could see) by Americans...Love it...
