One of these days I'm sure Jo or I will get around to writing a ride report of our trip to India. We had a great trip (despite my attempt to twist my right leg off at the knee on day 4 which kept me off a bike and in a support vehicle for the best part of a week - and now costing me $$ in physio visits). Met some interesting folk along the way, received innumerable waves and smiles from the locals, had some great times, and quite a few times when we hot and flustered and frustrated and annoyed and wondered WTF we were doing there!!!, but then at the end of every day there was a cold beer and suddenly everyone just remembered the good times.

Between the two of us we took almost 5000 photos... about 10% are worthy to share. Here are a sample of mine...
