    Filmed last summer, but it’s taken this long to get round to editing.

    Two weeks in North West India on rented Classic Enfield 500s.

    Stared out as a trip from Manali to Leh, ended up in Spiti Valley.

    Mountains, rain, snow and landslides.

    Yes! Good stuff. I’ll be visiting India next year, based out of New Delhi. @CA Stu, who’s done a similar ride, gave me some good info. I’ve been reading up on India and tours like these, but this video is just perfect.

    Incredible ride! Those road conditions were horrendous and doing it on Enfields! Trying to move quickly through the Himalayas is like trying to push a wet noodle across a table.:lol3

    It brought back vivid memories from my trip including the overnight stay in the lean-to. Thanks for posting.

    Great video!
    Nice to be able to enjoy some motorcycle travelling by proxy, I had planned to ride through that part of the world this summer on my ride from Australia to the Netherlands but unfortunately some virus popped up and I had to fly home and leave my bike in Indonesia.
    Seeing these images keeps me motivated to keep working away and saving up to finish my trip when, if?, it's possible again to do so.
    Those mountains are something else, great scenery!
    Thanks for the entertainment on a rainy Sunday afternoon.
