    Well shit, I'm in the middle of episode 5 and watching you check in to The Hyatt Regency in Delhi.
    You don't know that we have a tent space thread and there's an inmate there who may have been able
    to put you up for the night.

    Probably the best part of ADVrider. I've hosted maybe 6 riders and gonna call in all my karma hosting points this summer.

    Loving your videos.

    Excellent and a "little" different than the typical RR. The look on your face when the young man rode off on your bike was classic!

    Your trips are certainly an adventure!!

    If you ever got on an "Adventure" bike, there would be nothing that could stop you.

    Well done mate, I look forward to your next adventure.

    Cheers

    Thanks for taking the time to create the footage and share your trip. No small amount of work there.

    I think he stated that he travels minimalist, and just stays in hotels. Doesn't look like he has any camping gear, nor a lot of other things.

    Very nice Daniel. I just signed on, but from what I have seen, your adventures (and video editing) are quite entertaining.

    Just finished day 5, after you hunted for the drone and then a truly scary ride back to buy another one. Thanks so much for all the hard work documenting the ride.
    Amazing, well done Daniel!! Your emotion at the end of the day was so heartfelt, as you say, just trying to stay alive and by the looks of it no small feat.
    Thanks again for a super entertaining ride so far, great editing and music too.

    I was laughing through most of your video, all the crazy situations you got yourself into, but you managed to pull through each time, and didn't need to sleep outside with the monkeys even once. I was looking forward to seeing that. I don't see myself going to India anytime soon, despite all the amazing people you met, just too busy. Thanks for all the hard work and the great editing.
