Over the past 4 months I have been riding a Royal Enfield, 2006, Bullet Electra around India and Nepal. I bought the bike in Goa, India from an Australian couple who had ridden it down from Nepal.
Funnily enough, the paperwork for the bike also showed that the bike was sold 3 years prior to that in Pokhara, Nepal which is the exact place and same company that I have asked to sell it for me this time.
There were many good times and a few bad times while out on the road. I had one small crash which cost £6 to fix and I just had a couple of very small scratches on me so nothing major which was lucky – coincidentally, I was riding away from a place called Lucknow.
In total I covered around 10,000km, which took me about 350 riding hours. I know, it’s slow but the roads in India and some in Nepal were not built for fast riding. Not to mention the fact that there are a bunch of obstacles on the roads, like goats, cattle, people, chickens and just about everything else you can imagine.
