Overland To India:
The Book

The good news is that both bike and rider survived to tell the tale. I undertook my overland journey to India between August 22nd and October 8 2008. Despite intense heat, a crash and some appalling road conditions, my wonderful 55-year-old Royal Enfield hardly missed a beat. I hope you will find this website useful and that it may inspire you to load up your bike and set off on your own adventures. Gordon G. May 2008
