Was just about to do a post to see who was in the area and fell upon this one. Good stuff!
So anyways, I am on my pre-RTW holiday, in India, and sad to say without my bike. I have a couple more months here until meeting my travelling buddy (Baronbolton) in South Korea and starting the big trip. I ride a Honda XR650L.
I am based in McLeod Ganj for the next month at least (volunteering teaching english), and while its not quite on the Manali - Leh route, I would highly recommend a detour, if simply to say hello to the Dalai Lama. I dont know where you all are now, but its his birthday on Monday and so there should be celebrations here that day.
I am suffering severe cold turkey, not having any biking friends at the mo, so if any of you do end up passing this way, whenever, please PM me. That would be ace! I let you know where to get the best Momos!
If not, I wish you all the best on your travels! Whooooop.
Don't be scared your life may end,
Be scared that it may never begin.......
