    So here I was sitting in the shop when my friend says where are we going on our next ride? 30 min later... Let's draw. Each pick 3 places, make 2 of each for draw, and pick.

    A great result which will end in an unforgettable trip, if you are going there in the summer it will be heading towards or in the monsoon but the weather in the far north will be good and the highest roads in the world open in July through to September with amazing roads, scenery and a culture that is closer to Tibet than India.

    I'd like to target 29 June 2019 - 26 July 2019. Hoping to avoid monsoon season but realize we could hit some of it. First thought is to fly in, buy motorcycles, ride, then sell or give them away. I dont know if any factories in India have a factory delivery program where we could pick up at factory, ride, and then have factory deliver to us dealer for us; that would be ideal.

    I read a little about k2k last night. Lots more ride reports to go through for ideas...

    It is not possible for foreigners to register motorcycles in their name in India although there are ways around this but plenty of rentals, often Royal Enfields and smaller bikes up to 250cc which are quite fast enough on Indian roads although there is an increasing range of medium sized bike available.
