Wishing you all the good luck that can ever come your way. Will surely follow this thread.
Leaders don't force people to follow,. They invite them on a JOURNEY... Lets ride together !!

This is hell of a ride man, you guys really rock. Bhutan is one of my favorites and it’s a place to get settled. The roads aren’t bad at all its just it was little tiring for us to cover it all the way from Delhi nd Nepaul (Nepal). The route and plan look amazing. Saj, good to see your name after so long. cheers
I would rather be riding my motorcycle thinking about God,than sitting in a temple thinking about my motorcycle
