The Indian head bobblewobble drives me nuts. I'd probably not be able to take it like you do...I'd punch one of 'em. LOL
thanks, Im always easily "entertained"! I can't believe you dont like the headwobble! Its awesome, it says so much without having to say anything and breaks the ice in any situation. Head into you nearest Indian restaurant and give it a try, they'll love you for it!

I live in Kuwait, where there is a large amount of Indian expats...all the headbobble says to me is "I don't know, but I'm not going to say yes or no." Thanks.

What a Great thread!!!I have been out to the Himalayas many times and am addicted to it!! Been over the Rohtang 6 or 7 times and each time its completley different . Great to see your videos,and you are right the only way to do India is on an Enfield.The 500's have the edge in the Hills but its doable on the 350's .I fell in love with the Enfield ,and am due to pick up a Woodsman today!!!! Thanks for posting

Thanks Vaish. Riding the Himalaya is certainly one of the most fun and exciting things I've ever done.

I deleted a photo album which sorta destroyed all my threads, but Im slowly putting them back up again on another photo storage site. At least the video's are still working.

Truly wonderful RR.

Even without the pics - but, now I want to re read it with the the pics and see if they match my imagination. Any chance you could put them back up?
