India - Pune / Mumbai (Bombay)

Hi,
Any riders passing through India in Pune are welcome to contact me at the numbers given below 9881498694 or you can mail me at the address haribombay( at )gmail.com available in the link above. I would be able to provide accomodation in my flat that I share with friends(free of course) and Maybe a guided tour of the city if time permits.
I ride a Enfield Bullet on Smallish rides in and around city here so Maybe I can show you some interesting places around.
Contact me If you need any help in this part of the country and I will see what best I can do.
Red Bull

Thumbs up Very Generous

That's a great offer, Red Bull. I might take you up on that one day. Meantime, if you'd like to spend time in the UAE feel free to get in touch.
Stephan
BTW What would it cost to hire an Enfield in Mumbai per week?

Stephano >> I don't really know how much it costs to rent,

I bought my Bullet about a year ago .
It is a Second hand Bullet Electra (2003 model) in Top condition , 350 CC, 18 BHP
and the price that I paid then was 39,000 Indian Rupees

but if you are going to ride around for a more than 6 months I guess its chearper to Buy an enfield here and sell it while leaving..
Enfield dealers are present in most state capitals and some major towns I guess.

Second hand enfields ,, well for that contact the local bullet club of the city where you land / arrange for some contact here to show you some second hand bikes for sale etc...

Are you planning to come down anytime soon?? Do you Want me look up on prices for renting Enfields?

And Of course you can take me up on my offer >> Welcome :-)
That's a great offer, Red Bull. I might take you up on that one day

Smile Sorry guys, I have migrated to Aus and no more stay at the above address

Guys,
If you happen to be in this area. might be able to put you in touch with other biker friends of mine.

Can't help directly in accomodation though. If you are travelling around Melbourne, please see my other thread !

thanks

Membership - help keep us going!

Horizons Unlimited is not a big multi-national company, just two people who love motorcycle travel and have grown what started as a hobby in 1997 into a full time job (usually 8-10 hours per day and 7 days a week) and a labour of love. To keep it going and a roof over our heads, we run events all over the world with the help of volunteers; we sell inspirational and informative DVDs; we have a few selected advertisers; and we make a small amount from memberships.

You don't have to be a Member to come to an HU meeting, access the website, or ask questions on the HUBB. What you get for your membership contribution is our sincere gratitude, good karma and knowing that you're helping to keep the motorcycle travel dream alive. Contributing Members and Gold Members do get additional features on the HUBB. Here's a list of all the Member benefits on the HUBB.
