Amazing pics of Incredible India man. The pics of the fort and its intricate detailing work is awesome. I can imagine the solitude the desert provides from the humdrum of life.I think discovery and other channels never show the world how beautiful and complex Indian art is. All we see is slumdog millionare type documentries that are a small sore on its true and giant heritage.
Anyways rants apart, let us know how was your experience while riding 2 wheeler? How was the availability of food and water, temperature and accomodation in this long route. I am sure food and hospitality would have been great as you are in land of marwaris.

Amazing pics and an amazing feat to accomplish. Now thats the passion called bikes. Rajasthan has a strange glory attached, the deserts are just wonderful.
And it was nice to see you both live the real incredible India in those mud cottages and eating the ever tasty food.
Waiting to get the details of your trip, the planning and care for a long bike ride. How many days was the trip planned, any special incidents, how did the Karizma's perform?

Pulsurge, those are some great pics! Your log is really making me nostalgic man. The hospitality of Badal ji, Khuri sand dunes, and those mighty bajra roties that Laxman cooks to be savored with spicy Daal and a night spent under the stars, Amazing.
Just can't resist posting a pic from my trip.
