    Hi everyone. I have had to travel to India for business and now am trapped here by the volcano. There are lots of bikes here but they are all small, mostly Asian. I keep looking but I haven’t seen a big V Twin anywhere.

    It was interesting however to see a family of four riding on a Honda, probably 175 cc.

    Anxious to get home and back on my bike.

    Might as well rent one in India and go sightseeing (crazy traffic though, so watch out :))

    everytime I hear about this volcano I think of the line from the Jimmy Buffett song...

    "I don't know where I'm a gonna go, when the volcano blows"

    good luck BD, hope you make it home soon!

    As bad as the dust is over there, It is supposed to cause the earth to cool down by as much as 3* and that is needed... So mother nature takes care of the earth in ways we can't... SORRY algore

    Let us know if you PUT put, you might like it... Any bike is better than None!

    keep safe!

    I remember a Royal Enfield we tried to get running during the summer of 1972. It would definitely be a conversation piece if you could bring one back. Hopefully air travel will return to normal - Bob
