Who's with BMW K-bike with Sidecar in Delhi

Hi,

I've just spotted what looked like a white and blue K100 Beemer with a Sidecar sitting outside a Hotel in Mahipalpur (just off the Delhi-Gurgaon Expressway).

I was wondering if any Overlanders were in town, maybe we could meet and swap some lies

That will probably be monsieur Vincent - VinceK100 from this forum. (search for him and PM him)



Photo above is from Tajikistan 5 months ago (in a bizarre 3 way meeting) but he should be in India by now. He will have some great lies. He recently went thru Afghanistan! (Vincent is the guy in the cap on the right)

I will be making my way from Rishikesh to Delhi tomorrow on a rather dirty KTM 640 Adventure if anyone is about for a or several. Not particularly looking forwards to the chaos.

Beer sounds good! I'm currently in Delhi, on a dirty KTM Mil on the way to Nepal ;-) I was considering leaving tomorrow, but I still have a few things to do to the bike, so I might also stick around for another day. I'm staying at a shitty (not recommended) hotel in Bahargan (but there are a trillion places to choose from, so you'll probably be more lucky than me). If you are around, in or beyond Delhi, you can reach me on 9876547417 (Indian sim card).

Thumbs up

Hey Vincent,

It's a shame i've missed you, since i've left Goa 2 days ago. I have shipped my Bike from Kenya to Mumbai 10 days ago, and Now already in Hampi. my next destination is also Thiland. Do you know the cost and avlabelety of ships/Ferris from India to Thiland? It sounds like a good alternative to fly from Nepal...

Thanks,
Adam Shani
