India April 2023 for the next year!

Anyone heading to India for 2023? I'm flying into New Delhi on April 9th 2023. My plan is to be traveling via KTM 390 Adventure motorcycle for the next year or 2 in the north Himalayan mountains for the summer and the south for the winter.

I'm an American coming from the states who's been RTW the last 7 years in Latin America, Europe, and Asia until the world shut down with the Rona lockdowns. I enjoy exploring ancient ruins, abandoned places, and other off the beaten path less tourist locations. When I'm out ridingthe bike I avoid the highway at all costs and try my best to stay on either the dirt trails or paved 2 lane twisties.

Love to connect with other like-minded adventure riders who want to explore Indian, Nepal, and possibly Pakistan

Thanks! Ride safe and stay wild out there y'all.

And I believe it will not get in 10 days. It will take longer.

@gnarlynate and @mjod Best of luck for your journey.

@gnarlynate are you registering it in New Delhi? Have you registered it on your own name? As I am excited to know that if a foreign national can register a motorbike on his name?

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.
