What’s been up? This is what...
.
I’ve just come back from @royalenfield’s #HimalayanOdyssey and what a ride it’s been. Ripping the Himalayan through its home terrain just proved to me again how well the motorcycle works up there. Still wish it had more power though. But it can really take a beating!

Like the 200 before it, the @tvsmotorcompany Apache RTR 160 4v is a quick steering, punchy little motorcycle. In an age when the displacements are going higher, the little RTR is proof that you don’t need big cc to have big fun.

Many moons ago, on Spanish countrysides...
.
The Bobber marries style and functionality so seamlessly that it is hard to draw parallels. That hardtail look makes you want to cry. I like mine with those ape-hangers. Oh, and not to mention that immense 1200 motor that makes it tick. Sigh!

Hi friend...
.
It’s been a fair number of weeks since I rode this @suzuki2wheelers GSX-S750 around the @buddh_international_circuit. Still can’t get over how friendly a motorcycle it is. I want to now find out what it’s like to live with on the street. Soon. Sooooon...

How pretty is that?
.
Day 1 done of the weekend. Didn’t go too well. Been off the track too long, methinks. Lines were all over the place. Gear selection was all wrong. Was braking too early. Just can’t seem to tie it all together somehow. Ended up seven seconds off pace. Saddle time did help a bit in getting to know the RR Cup bike. Hopefully tomorrow will go better 🤞🏼

Xtremely likeable!
.
The Xtreme 200R is a super likeable motorcycle. Lots of low end grunt and a chassis that is happy around a racetrack and should do well as an everyday runabout too! That’s great balance!

The mountains are calling...
.
Been dreaming about these peaks a lot lately. So be prepared to see more mountain pictures for the next few days!

Take me back...
.
It’s been almost two years since I visited the Himalayas. What was a yearly ritual has turned into a faint, distant memory.
This is one of my favourite photographs from the mountains. There’s a sense of being directionless while being surrounded by incredible beauty to this. A certain loneliness, but also a sense of peace. I’m hoping this year, I get to go again. I’m hoping this year, I come back with a new photograph.

Stand up, send it!
.
Get used to low traction. You’ll be amazed at how much it adds to your skill on black top.

Number two!
.
@joshuacrasto’s Yamaha WR450 is the RMX’s constant companion. Light, ferociously fast and enough capability to make mountain goats cower. It’s difficult to keep up with this motorcycle even on a two-stroke 250!

Number one!
.
A two stroke 250. Light enough to not be a burden. Quick enough to make you stain your pants. Daily dosage can result in happiness.
