So not only am I doing a blog, have uploaded some photos but I've now even managed a Youtube account. There's clearly no stopping me...................

This is my first attempt at posting one so here's hoping it works. It took ages to upload to the Youtube site but I'm hoping you like it.

This was footage I shot whilst riding down the Zoji La pass on NH1 from Leh towards Srinagar a couple of weeks back.

I was riding with Andy and Geoff and as we approached the top of the decent - with just one corner obscuring the impending road below - I flagged down Andy (who had previously said he wasn't that keen on heights) and told him that the road got much better from here on in, he replied "by that you mean much worse I guess?" Oh how I wish I could've seen the  look on his face as we rounded the corner.

A top tastic 'adventure motorcyclists' road if ever there was one!    

Riding one handed (with my left hand holding the camera) was amusing and if I manage to upload the initial video I took you'll hear me laughing - not at Andy's expense obviously.

Anyway, I'm hoping to get back on my bike this weekend for a first ride since the biggest lie ever told by a medical professional "15 minutes - no pain".

Richard arrives in just over two weeks and then we'll head off and I can start my trip in earnest.


As for the second video.............well it deserved to make it on here - I've never been sung to by an Israeli whilst travelling in an auto before.
