150 cc in India
There seem to be lots of posts on the subject of what makes a good adventure bike although I'm very much of the opinion of ride cheap and ride well as my previous bike trips will confirm.
If anyone is thinking of an Indian 'adventure' (surely one of the easiest places to arrange) you'd be wise to check out the Hero 150 cc Impulse. Apart from a few monsoon related electrical niggles (and not wishing to tempt fate as I've still a long way to go) this bike is doing really well and returning excellent mpg. I'm 3 months in to a 6 month trip and there's an ongoing blog / review at Simonchegwyn's Traveler Profile - TravelPod
I'll do a final write up on the bike at the end but so far so good. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that it all continues.
I'm sure the autumnal UK weather's kicking in so with winter fast approaching it's a great time to be in India!
