Happy New Year 2015

Festive wishes and greetings to all my friends around the world, wherever you may be. I wish everyone good health and happiness for them and their families.

To celebrate the New Year, I headed out of the house with friends down to the beach, for the traditional New Year's Day swim, however, the waves were big and we have a strong undertow so I didn't manage to get in for much of swim.

Thelma should be out of the workshop soon and back on the road.

Riding Rapa Nui 3

Volcanoes and Bikes

The next morning I'm up early and climbing up the side of another extinct volcano to enjoy the view from the top

Naturally the view includes a few more moai in the distance

Memories of our adventure on the wonderful Enfield bikes

Delhi Days

We had a couple of days in Delhi

getting around in tuk-tuks (auto rickshaws)

Final Riding Day

A bittersweet experience, knowing that this was our last day of riding but what incredible surroundings to be riding through

Moving On

We'd had an incredible time in the Nubra Valley, but it was time to leave, the view from my window looked like this

Clouds are starting to cluster on the mountain tops- we'd better get a move on to cross the high pass before it started snowing

Riding Sand


I was determined to ride my Enfield in the sand- somewhat unsuitable choice of bike and tyres for the task - but it HAD to be done. I managed to persuade two of the riders to give it a go and we headed off


we lined up, facing the nearest sand dune
