South India - hi to HUBB
 
dear HU crowd

after a one-year journey 2003/2004 through the americas and africa and a short trip to mongolia in 2008, my wife and I are on the loose again. is there any more to say? yes, i'm an admitted motorcycle traveller, currently curving around in south india.

we bought two of the famous indian royal enfields. the models bold name "bullet" doesn't really represent their attitude. with its 17hp or somewhat, they doesn't exactly offer what i'm used to as a ktm driver. well, at least it's a comfortable glider and the consumption is excellent low (less then a gallon for 100 miles).

here are some pics, hopefully lets you dream of the free world if you're locked behind a desk at the moment:

10 miles as the crow flies, 30 miles on the road... that's a promise!
