To Quote from the Rocky Horror Picture Show.....I would like, if I may, to take you on a strange journey. It takes place in 2016. The main character, Chat Lunatique (aka Buddha Bill), finds himself widowed and alone after 41 years of marriage. Seeking to blunt the pain he turns to his tried and true tools to forget....adventure and alcohol. Oh, and toss in bikes too! So our hero sells his house and everything he owns and heads off on the solo Bullets, Buddhism and Beer tour. The pic is local beer, my prayer beads and the keys to the Bull, my ride. A theme photo, so to speak. I'm sitting today in a bar at my hotel on Had Rin beach, Ko Pah Ngan, Thailand. I have 6 weeks here of doing absolutely nothing so I decided to finally do my RR for last years' trip. I'm doing Thailand and Vietnam this year but that will be another story. The story will be my experiences on a 9 month trip around the borders of India. From Delhi up to the Himalaya, across the north heading east thru Nepal into Sikkim, down the east coast to lands end and up the west coast back to Delhi. I've visited India and Nepal many times before hiking, climbing, backpacking and renting bikes. This time is full on with my own Royal Enfield Bullet 500cc. I'm also a practicing Buddhist and visit here to do retreats in the mountains in Tibetan Buddhist monasteries. I chant in Tibetan with the monks and this insight into this culture will be not the usual RR.
