After getting to Chris's Casa...

(as previously posted) we made it to Sharad's place to get the "Green Monster", the 350 Bullet I will ride on this trip.
Traffic in Delhi was overwhelming at first, until I came to understand how it works. The congestion makes it neccesary to take "liberties" to get where you have to go. So many vehicles/people and only so much room.

Striving for...

Incredible RR and someone from NC no less.

After drifting away from a 20y love affair with motorcycling
(after momma realtor in a Volvo stationwagon used me for a hood ornament ),

your adventure reminds me of what I have missed. It is a nice confirmation that I know that I earned my spurs and am ready to get back in the saddle. Subscribed and waiting for the next installment. Thanks.
