Ride The Himalayas

“If you don't go when you want to go, when you do go, you'll find you are gone”

Seeking travel / adventure partner for a motorbike journey (3 to 4 weeks) into the Himalayas (East India) – I have a motorbike, experience & ample enthusiasm. What you need is the will, good instincts (to verify the authencity of my offer).

Clarifying: I am not seeking a holiday partner – but an adventure partner. However, I am not seeking an expert. I imagine our ride to be about attitude, achievement, team work and the wonder of riding together in extreme and isolated terrain. Such spectacular life experience is all about who you are and not how you ride.

Ride in the Himalayas


I am a keen 26y/o New Zealander with plenty of motorcycling experience. I currently own a sv650s.

Am looking to go to the Himalayas in late Feb 2010. Does that suit you?

I'd say August makes a heck of a lot more sense than Feb. Although I know someone that did it in November and they said it was no problem, which surprised me.

I'm hoping to cross from Myanmar to NE India early June 2010, then follow the Himalayas as much as possible ( Bhutan being sorted before end of this month hopefully) and arrive in Leh in the West early August.

Weather being the key to the pace of the trip - and in no hurry to be sure !

If you're about that way going in either direction keep in touch !!.
Cheers !
