Due to the severe lack of bikes this year we thought we'd finally get round to blogging our biking escapades in India. So here goes...
Last November we went to India for three weeks and while we were there hired an Enfield. It cost around £7 for one day and very conveniently was ready and waiting outside our hotel when we got up in the morning.
Our driver gives us a few tips on starting the bike.
Five minutes down the road and we've run out of petrol. It seems our £7 only includes the bike and not enough petrol to get us to the nearest petrol station (about 10 minutes away)!
One good thing about India is there are always plenty of people willing to help.
Out on the open road at last. Either Gareth has lost his nerve and is driving very slowly or the speedo doesn't work on this bike!
Bored with the main road we decide to turn off and take the scenic route. After about 10 minutes the scenic route turns a little less scenic and more like a sand track.
Gareth tries to manouver the bike out of the sand without falling over.
Back at the hotel. This is the first motorbike I have riden and I was having a lovely time until I was driven off the road by some angry men in a lorry...apparently women don't ride motorbikes...
