Awesome trip Mike!

Just remember, eat with and gesture toward someone with your RIGHT hand only. The left is traditionally used for something else. AMHIK.

Phew! I found this just in time! Can't wait for the RR. My wife and I went to visit CJ and Richa in December. Then we rented an Enfield in Pushcar and rode around Rajasthan.

Dude, the road between Manali and Srinagar, via Leh will turn you into a different person- you will never be the same again. That road will ruin you for all other roads for the rest of your life. Well, I haven't seen it in 19 years but still. Take LOTS of pics for us!

CJ and Richa, you should take him to the place you brought us with the water and sound show. That place was amazing.

Hey this guy should be in town while you are: http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=460631 (that's one of my more favoriter RRs).

Where the rubber meets the road!

This trip has been just what I was looking for. To experience a place like India has always been a dream, something an average guy like me just doesn't do. I've only been here a couple days and it has been more than I expected, in a GOOD way! The deep cultural heritage, the traffic jams, the people, the food, an absolutely amazing experience. The warnings about riding in Delhi were spot on. I have found it o be a "cooperation" of people, versus the rigid structure in the US. Everyone here has an understanding that we are all together, got to make room 'cause there's no more room! About the only thing you adhere to are stop lights. Lanes, speed, direction... usually depends on volume and diversity. Everything from push carts, to drawn carriages, o cars, trucks, bikes, scooters, people, animals... all vying for space - and getting it.
I thought I was prepared for the heat as well. Shoulda hit the sauna alot to prep better. Drinking alot helps, and the mountains will be MUCH cooler.
Leaving EARLY tomorrow for Minali and the hills. Pics coming, thanks all for checking out the report, the best is yet to come!

Ahh, Manali........... Well, CJ is the expert and my info is old, but I think you would want to stay in Old Manali. Or even better, go up the hill to Vashist and hang with the hippies. I forget what time it is that they change the water in the hot springs, but you only have to ask, then go right after that. It's very cool (well hot, but you know what I mean). And the view of the river is nice from a few of the cafes up there. I rented a house up there for a month and really liked it.

Remember Sgt. Mike took Shustrik to the races when he visited? It was awesome! Now it's payback.

Gonna check your myspace later for any updates there too.
