Checking the knees for old age...
.
So here’s what I use for riding off-road. The jersey and pants are from @flyracingusa. The boots are the Tech 7 Enduros from @alpinestars. The helmet is an @airohelmets Twist. the goggles are the Racecraft from @ride100percent. The gloves are @officialleatt’s GPX 5.0. The armoured shirt is the Urbane from @knoxarmour and the knee armour is from @evssports. More on each piece of kit soon.

Tiger terrritory!
.
The ride from #Kaza this time has to be the most challenging ride I’ve been on in a while. The rocks and rivers were okay. It was the last stretch of two feet deep slush that really wiped me out. At times, the slush was so deep that it would kick my feet straight off the pegs. The road biased tyres didn’t help matters one bit. Nevertheless, I came back mighty impressed with the #Triumph #Tiger800XCx’s capabilities. And hard as it was, it sure was fun!

Flying high...
.
There’s something about the mountains that bring you peace. And being on a motorcycle just amplifies that sense of calm by hundreds. This was on the way back from Kaza last week, atop Rohtang. I could sit and stare at these clouds for hours. Pretty, isn’t it?

Still don’t get heavy off-road motorcycles, but...
.
So I’m back after having spent some time with the @indiatriumph Tiger 800 XCx and I’ve been extremely impressed. The first thing that strikes me is how refined it is - butter! It can go through some real gnarly terrain too. I’m talking about two feet of slush, overflowing rivers and rocks the size of your head! I’m still not convinced I’d buy one, but if I were to, the 800 XCx now sits there with the Honda Africa Twin as the only two possibilities. Both with off-road tyres, though!
.
Also, @ochacko - 😈!

Heading back to this today...
.
The mountains have become an annual tradition over the last decade. On a motorcycle, there is no better place to reflect on life. It is the most peaceful I have ever felt - the unending expanse of the Himalayas on either side...
.
Also, #selfie!

Happy birthday, @joshuacrasto! Here’s an old grainy picture of you to remind you how old you’re getting! 😬
More adventures to you this year, my friend!

The Ducati Museum!
.
The museum t the Ducati Factory in Borgo Panigale is where you can see Ducati’s story. You can walk around and see all their legendary motorcycles parked all shiny and nice. The Desmosedici RR, the Cagiva Elefant, the original Scrambler... Definitely worth the effort if you’re around Bologna.

No stroke like a two-stroke...
.
Every now and then I wonder if I should make the switch to a modern four-stroke. It would mean electric start and fuel injection. It would mean not getting stuck in precarious situations - trying to kick start the bike on narrow single track. But then I come back and ride the RMX and all the doubts vanish. The sheer excitement of a two-stroke is beyond compare. It’s a heady combination - light weight and manic power delivery. Makes me think that if I were to trade it in, it would be for another two stroke with electric start. Ah, if only we were spoilt for choice like that...

You’re never too old to play in the mud.
.
The Pune Offroad Expedition 2018 was pure insanity! The rain, the mud, the trail... Everything was 100%!

‘Bar talk!
.
@puneoffroadexpedition this year was even more epic. A whole day rolling around in the mud! Is there any better feeling?
.
Also, happy to report that the RMX is back in action and better than ever. After @joshuacrasto set up the suspension, it’s going like stink!
.
Again, gotta love the dirt!

There is no freedom better than two wheels and the wilderness.

Happy Independence Day, everyone!
