    49947400_10218935037386030_1420804511848464384_o.jpg Hello - didn't know this site existed until a friend told me about it ! I love EPIC rides it's what I live for ! I'm a corporate guy so riding really puts me into another space that is truly a healthy outlet for me ! I love the danger the unknown and the challenges along the way - I have just returned from India - I rented a HD 883 little sporty in Dehli and really wanted to challenge myself and see how close I could actually get to Mt Everest - I did no planning, just money and booked accom along the way. This was a serious adventure and extreme riding would be an understatement - india is like nothing I have ever experineced and I have ridden a lot !! I am a try hard YouTuber (just a hobby) and VLOG all my trips....just Youtube "can you ride a Harley Davidson to Mt Everest" or check out my channel. Million Dollar Bogan - off on another cray trip in about 12 days and will post some pics - I cannot stand tourist spots, I need have to get as remote as possible and try capture the footage.

    As a Sportster hound I'm curious about that choice of ride for this destination. Therefore, I'm in. Actually I would be anyway.

    Can you recommend the correct order to watch them? Part one has me hooked!

    I’m leaving for a much shorter less adventurous bike trip in southern India in two weeks! Need all the help I can get here.

    I've always thought of Harley riders as challanged already:jack

    I rode around India and across Nepal on an Enfield. Couldn't get parts(spokes) for my Bullet in Nepal as it was considered a luxury bike there. But I guess you weren't afraid of your Harley breaking down?

    Greetings from another colony.

    I really like your style and the videos, but I too am getting challenged by the order. I've watched 1 and 2, now searching for 3.

    You'll fit right in here.

    You are taking it this way but it isn't positive or negative; I would really like to see an approximation of route.

    The friend of mine back in '02? rode from Kirgizstan to Mnt Everest base camp on mountain bike.. stayed there for 6 days. It has been on my list ever since..

    the is worthless without" ", is just a advrider forums inside joke without position. anything could have been placed there according to what would be "Nice" to see or maybe just off the wall depending on the " character" typing it, all in fun.
