LEAVING GOA FOR NEPAL
After our adventures in Goa we decided to go up north straight through India. I have never had a motorbike. When I was 17 years old I had a Kreidler, a 50 cc bike that we can drive in the Netherlands without a drivers licence. I had it for 2 years and have never driven again but 4 lessons at a motor driverslicence school…. So we decided to buy the big Royal Enfield, the 500 CC. We were with 2 with two backpacks and kitchen utensils. I had a high backrest made, got a Ladakh Rack with some custom made boxes. I changed the headlight for a big light, installed a loud horn and legprotection.

Travelling by motorbike in India is a great experience. I have seen India as very few have seen it. Haveing an Enfield gets you in the nicest places with cheap guesthouses and local restaurants. Sometimes I could stay for free with local families…
