A Himalayan Roadtrip

What a great thing to do!

Two friends going on a bike trip from Manali and drove the Trans Himalayan Highway to Leh, then summited Khardung La (The world’s highest motorable road) and headed east to Srinagar near the Pakistan border before returning to Manali. That is for sure one of the great stories you write when you are young and keep telling throughout your life. A very intense adventure with so many spectacular experiences which will last for a lifetime. India and the Himalayan mountains are already adventurous enough by itself but exploring it on a Royal Enfield suddenly becomes a unique and very personal story. I’ve traveled the Himalayan Mountains from India to Nepal from Gorakhpur to Kathmandu by local transport after taking busses from Varanasi to Gorakhpur. But that feels almost a boring and usual way.

The video itself is well done and feels so authentic and real that it’s great fun to watch. The fun, the pain, the disappointments but also the reading feelings come across so real.

Love this open face helmet with the golden design, which was inspired by the evocative Maya writing.

With around 817 Euro for the painting job plus another 400-500 Euro for the helmet you need some little cash for this unique artwork. But, it’s unique and very special. Please read what the guys from “unexpected-custom” have to say about this special.

The ideographs and Mayan symbols are expertly mixed to the sinuous lines of the flame: icon of contemporary biker world, reinterpreted with this unusual combination that creates a refined and elegant aesthetic short circuit. Made with airbrushed special colors for glass on a complete metal lamination. The artistic work of this custom helmet is particularly bright and elegant through the use of our special colors for glass that, airbrushed on the in gold leaf surface, offer a rich range of bronze colors and shades. The realization of the middle lettering is obtained with a airbrushed marbled texture that enriches the customization of this design.

Recent work on the rebuild of my cafe racer, Honda CB750 RC04. The photorealistic layouts above show the bike with a modified upside-down fork, new tank design and new shock absorbers. To bring the fron down and give the entire build a more compact look I’m looking into the race bike front parts like the upside-down fork and brake system. I’m not sure yet what design I will go with at the end. It’s still under construction and an ongoing design process. With the change of the front part, different other modifications, will be needed. Like the entire electronic system, which is original build on top of the handlebar/fork bridge but has to be moved back under the seat or tank.

“Son, once you get those training wheels off,” Mark said, “I’ll buy you your first motorcycle.”

A day later, Haven could ride his first bicycle without training wheels. Soon, he was on a motorcycle…at three years old. “I just thought it was so cool that I could go so fast, and everything was a blur, and I got to do it myself,” Haven says. “I was really free, I think I always held on to that.”

All of the signs present in a typical workshop are here: work benches, welding supplies, spare parts, but the warehouse Mark and Haven live in has been the focal point of their relationship and projects. Now a teenager, Haven has been turning heads with his first few custom motorcycles—that he’s made all by himself.
