Hi All

I now have a new website up and running. I will continue to update the blog here for now as we move slowly over but please take a look at for further updates on events and product reviews etc.



Royal Enfield Himalayan Review

Ah! Nostalgia. It ain't what it used to be.

Royal Enfield have been making bikes for as long as bikes have been around! In fact, they are the oldest motorcycle brand still in production having built their first bike in 1901. They sell in 50 countries and surpassed Harley Davidson in global sales back in 2015. Yet they have not exactly been forward in bringing out new models over the years, preferring to stick with the old classics like the Bullet, and...well, the Classic! The Bullet is pretty much all anyone rides in India so is it a case of 'why fix it if it ain't broke'?

Finding Direction - Two Months On!

‘No GPS is going to help you out of this one.’ I thought as I tried once more to take control of the ping pong ball that was bouncing around in my brain with random thoughts and unwelcomed emotions. This was getting far deeper than I had expected and I had not prepared for this leg of the journey.

‘What are you going to do when you get back?’, said just about everyone I came across near the end of my trip. ‘I’ll figure it out’ I’d say with a confident nonchalance, ‘It’s just the next chapter and I’m quite excited about it. A blank page to fill with whatever I choose.’ That was what this journey had done for me. I felt I could do anything I set my mind to. The World had made me an optimist.
