average mile / day in India

Hi HendiKaf,

Cannot comment on riding an Enfield, but on our Vstrom we always planned on covering about 50km for each hour riding and this seemed to always be close except for Rajasthan where we could do a little more.

Regards
John

KK Here. I am a bike traveller from India and own an Enfield. We (I and my wife) have travelled a lot (1,12,000 Kms ) in and arounnd my country. I have a motorcycle travelling club at my hometown Calcutta. It is possible to 70-75 Kms an hour in case you are on 4/6 lane freeway and 50 Kms hour average at the other roads for an enfield. If you want to buy an Enfield contact me on my phone. We assist all about motorcycle travelling In and aroud India extensively.
