When my friend Gaurav asked me if I wanted to go on an off-road motorcycle trip with his Royal Enfield Himalayan Group, my answer was obvious. I’d be craving to get back on a bike since arriving in India, and this was my chance to begin riding on Indian roads. So, […]
I recently took a 2016 KTM RC 390 from Delhi to Rohtak, Haryana to eat the largest paratha in the world. I’d wanted to get some more experience on a sports bike for a while now since I predominately ride upright adventure tourers like the Kawasaki Versys 650 or the Royal […]
I’ve always had a love affair with Parathas. How can you resist them? Imagine naan bread but thinner, made instead with whole wheat flour, stuffed with potato, chillies and spices, then simmered and covered in butter. It’s heaven in the morning.

Ladakh is the land before time. It’s the beautiful, rugged, untouched region in the northernmost Indian state of Jammu and Kashmir (J&K). It’s a part of Indian not frequented by foreigners probably due to the road passes to Ladakh only being open in the tourist off-season when they’re not frozen shut […]
I never thought I’d drive in India. Driving in India looked too chaotic and dangerous. “I’d rather let someone experienced drive for me,” I thought. But after living here a while I realised, like at home in the West, I love driving and riding a motorcycle and the freedom they give […]
