    no problem. if your sense of English is poor, you'll fit right in with this crowd.

    Striking Viking is currently riding around the world, and is in Nepal the last we heard.

    Advrider has a main page, like the cover of a book, and they put pictures on the cover that people post here. Keep posting your pictures and you are sure to see one on the front page of advrider.

    great job. tell us more about the bikes. you said they were all Indian bikes, and I noticed one said Honda. Is Honda building bikes in India?

    Hey man, those are some nice pics..

    [​IMG]

    This is a nice one.. Is it somewhere Kullu?

    I was up in the parvati valley for about 4 months back in '99, I didn't get to ride anywhere, but spent much time above Manikaran, and really wish to go back and ride those places!
