Man You work in IT in India and don't have a CAM??

Dude, un believable ,
High time for you to get a cam. That tooo seeing the rides that you do It would be a pity not to take photos.

The last time I went on a smallish ride(Weekend ~250KMS) my friends kept shouting at me and then eventually waited for me at the end hotel as I stopped every 500 meters for a PIC.

Sometimes i wonder wether I ride to take photos , or I take photos to remember the ride. :-)

Western China Pics and Video

Fairly comprehensive pics of some truly wild places from the Tibetan and Qinghai plateaus to the Taklamakan Desert, Silk Road, Ancient cities n' stuff. Some of the landscapes have never been photographed before.

All photos are coordinate geo-tagged and map browsable. It's a good site and will soon be rolled into Google Earth, if you have interest in geo-tagging your images, Panoramio is a great place to share them.

Well, I've some pics on my website too. Go to "Ridereports" and choose a report. Sorry, most of'em in German only, but...ey, we're in the photo-forum here, right!? So it's anyway about the pics and not the words;-)

Jarax, stunning pics! Jeez, really gives you a bout of fernweh...

I've got a few questions:
- I saw you riding with a GPS. Would you share the tracks?
- How did you and your bikes get there? Did you fly / take the Trans Sib / ride all the way?
- Which road maps did you use?

Only when we pause to wonder
do we go beyond the limits of our little lives.
