Motorbike Adventures of India

Follow Kevin and the adventures he has in India

'HOW LONG'..............

Air

It is now 24 days to lift off on the worlds greatest motorbike adventure...........well okay may be not but certainly my greatest adventure

I will land in New Delhi around 1030am on the 7th October, which is only 8 days before I am 58, yep fifty bloody eight years of experience have led me to ride a Triumph Tiger 800cc XCA (supplied by Triumph India) for 2 months around the most wonderful country in the world.

However, before doing so I shall walk out of the aiport around 11030am and be hit with the desire to breath, because the air there is different and it took me 24 hours to adjust to the oxygen levels last time. I just hope this time I wont have to walk fast after anyone to get to a car, carrying a 30kg rucksack over my shoulder, with my helmet dangling from my right hand whislt trying to keep up with a thin Indian man wearing flip flops !

Of course there is concern about flying, riding, sleeping, eating, drinking and having the time of my life, after all who wouldn't have concerns about such things as I then head off down to Jaipur.......by train, maybe, ish.....and I bagzie sitting on the roof ha ha ha 

Then following aclimatisation it will be back into Delhi to speak with http://www.triumphmotorcycles.in and also for Deejays bike with http://www.eaglerider.com/new-delhi and finally picking up tank bags from http://www.dirtsack.in well at least the store to pick up the tanks bags as DirtSack are based in Mumbai 

Then final preperations for the route will be organised to make sure we have a route to set off with, however like all good battle plans as soon as things start plans can change, so it will be a fluid plan ready for adjustments as the adventure starts to take shape

So it is now time for final preperations at this end with my jabs being up to date, anti mosquito death tablets have been collected, both Sena intercoms/cameras, the 10C model have been set up, vitamin sweets checked for tastyness, Buffs still on the cardboard holders for now, as as my Re-Winds radio and torches still in the packagaing, the quick shifter motorbike wipes are still sealed to keep them moist, must keep moist you know, then to make sure the ride power charger is going to attach to one of the bikes to keep the phone charged, that the Rav Power power banks are all charged up to keep a power supply for the drift ghost cameras that the filming will be done with, my Vision Direct supply of contact lens have arrived and being kept to one side for packing, and without question my HELD rider equipment mesh suit, gloves and helmet are tip top condition and of course my Forma boots to keep snakes from biting my lower legs. A tent has been supplied by Twist Moto but we've been advised that camping is not a good idea where we are going due to Leopards, and snakes being a hazard, and my NOOZ specs so I can see when reading and alongside everything my Sun God sunglasses in my attempt to look cool !!

So that is it really except for making sure I have enough Insulin, and bags to poo in (90 should be enough I hope, or I might take 120) along with painkillers to keep any aches and pains away along with anti shit tablets to keep any 'interesting' experiences at bay also, and loads of Lucozade tablets in case I squirt in to much Insulin and my blood sugar drops to low

The only thing I've yet to make sure about is a camel pack to make sure I keep my fluid levels up whilst riding 

Now............just have to find where I've put my passport for safe keeping..............

KRIEGA are you listening !!!
