Currently waiting for Dean to do a long overdue oil change on Betsy. We have managed to get an area in a KTM workshop to make life a little easier. They have all been amazed with the bike, helped all they can and given us chai to drink 😊
We left Rishikesh yesterday after chilling out for a few days there… I did a couple of yoga classes but we mostly just enjoyed having a clean room to relax in for once!
We rode through Dehradun yesterday in search for some good oil for the bike but it appeared the whole city was on strike (which we later found out was due to a new tax that was being added to jewellery?!!) so that was a waste of time, then we headed back into the mountains to a place called Mussoorie.
Whilst looking for a hotel (story of our lives!) we met Pieter, another friendly KTM fanatic who ended up helping us find a room and taking us to a pub (yes, it was a pub) in the hills which was done up like an old English pub (I was in heaven!) and also brought us back down to KTM this morning and arranged for us to get the area to work in.
Pieter is from South Africa but lives here at the moment, it’s amazing what a different experience you have when you meet a ‘local’! Thanks Pieter 😊
From here we are making our way back in to the mountains (it’s too hot to be down on the plains now!) to a place called Shimla 😊
