A short delight full book about touring Rajasthan (India) on a classic 50's era British motorcycle...

Books on touring India on a motorcycle are few in number, in fact Divining the Deccan: A Motorbike to the Heart of India by Bill Aitken is the only other book that i am aware of. So if you have any interest in India or in motorcycling then you will like the book, however if you are a fan of old style single cylinder British thumper's the you will love this book. Exploring the back lane's and less travel led roads of rajasthan is almost like traveling back in time. You experience sight and sounds of almost half a century ago. So going around on a sixty year old motorcycle seem just apt..

The book starts the authors first journey to rajasthan on a 1950's Royal En field 500 cc motorcycle (which BTW is still produced brand new in India) and goes on describe how they became guided tour operators conducting motorcycle trip to rajasthan on a regular basis.

The book will wet your appetite for the alluring country that India is - from the sleepy villages of south rajasthan to the killing grounds (traffic wise) of Delhi, the reader get a pillion seat ride as he become part of the authors journey as they experience the beauty of India and at the same time try and get a grip on the chaos that is an integral part of life in India.

A few shortcoming's (that's why only 4 stars)

1) Should have had more photos
2) Maps of the various journeys would have been good.
