Great ride report, guys. I'd guess you could go back to the CO mountains a dozen times and find each one a new and awesome trip (except for the slog from Wichita, of course).

On the morning of the 7th day we packed up from Mandi and headed off to visit HH The Dalai Lama in McLeod Ganj, a small village halfway up the mountain above Dharamasala. We were, shall we say,...

The next morning it was clear we had a problem. P was not only feeling freaked out by the heights and the steep drop offs (which we knew were only going to get worse over the next few days), he'd...

Day 4 - Further up the mountains

We started the third day of riding in great spirits and headed out towards Sarahan, a tiny village way up on a mountain with a temple that dates back to the 1200's. The roads were starting to get...

On To Rohru

We began the second day of riding by backtracking a bit down the valley we came up to get to one of the few bridges across the river at the valley's floor. The scenery was just as great going down...

First two days in India

After a short red-eye from Doha to Delhi we hopped into a van and took an 8+ hour ride from Delhi to Dehradun in Uttarakhand. The 8 hours was a bit shocking because we only went about 250km in that...

I'd go with an iPad Mini, or just a smartphone
