Thanks heaps for the tips and support.
HUBB is a wonderful place indeed.
OK Dave Ill keep an eye out for a Seppo riding an Enfield...
What does a seppo look like these days?
denim shorts, headband, dali stache??
As for scratchs and dents... I couldnt care less, but I would be lost if my ignition switch and fuel taps are snapt! Will think of something.
Ill be sure to put the bike on a train going through Mumbai rather than stopping there.
Point taken about the fuel, will refrain from doing it, didnt think about the enforced conciquences. I like to stay away from officials.
You mentioned the bike will be fully covered if I left it at its destination for a few days. Fully covered means what? Sorry.
Covered in a cover? Burlap and Hay? Dust? Insurance?
You guys have given me confidence to do this so Im not worried about it arriving late. All the Indians I know are pretty thorough chaps so I trust they will get it there eventually.
Id be interested if you could pass on the details of the courier service that uses the rail network. Sounds good.
We are OK with riding in the wet. Floods are another thing though.
Heat doesnt bother us if we can keep moving, traffic avoidance is difficult in that part of the world I guess. Maybe we will get back on the bike in Ahmedabad and ride north to Dehli. If time permits and weather not too oppressive Rajasthan looks good.
Night riding is a complete impossibility for me. No way, but thanks for the idea!
Thanks a lot.
Nathan and Aki.
