This excellent RR...

... helped me a lot getting a feel for what to expect next year. Luckily I have a few months as opposed to your few weeks to do more or less the same trip. So I'll rather buy than rent a bike, and after your experience with the old REs I think I'll look into these newer Japanese-Indian bikes.
BTW, while backpacking in 2002/03 I rented an Enfield for a day just to ride from Udaipur to Chittogarh and back. I had no problems on these well-paved 200km, but I wondered if the RE is good for anything beyond riding from one of Goa's beaches to the next, trying to impress the European girls.
Thanks for the write-up, I really enjoyed reading the whole thing!
