Reminds me of the time I was riding on the Himalayan roads in Nepal, a great experience I will never forget.
However, not on a Enfield, but on a 250cc Honda CB72.

When was that, Peter?
I think I remember seeing a website with that story.
Did you publish?

Ger, The website you have seen was not mine.
This trip with the Honda was back in 1978, long before the internet was invented. The bike was rented in Kathmandu.
I've been back several times to Nepal after that first trip, that country changed a lot over the years, unfortunately not always for the better.
The natural scenery however, is second to none.
Now I read they even have a small classic bike scene over there. bigt
