India warm up trip 2011

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

In July 2011, we took the opportunity to spend two weeks up in the Indian Himilayas on Enfield 500 Bullets, riding the infamous Manali to Leh highway. The extreme altitude and weather, rough roads and ill equipped bikes, was the perfect eye opener for what the round the world trip may entail. It was a real test of our ability, giving us an excellent insight into the kind of situations that real motorcycle adventure travel can throw up from time to time.

Despite experiencing some heavy symptoms of altitude sickness, we powered on through and managed to complete the mission in the very tight time scale we gave ourselves.
