LOG ENTRY 34

After two weeks of soullessness, as we, riders call the stage when no bike rolling under us, we received the bikes with the Carnet and completed our first section from the border to Delhi.

On the road again, even though it is the afternoon the weather is crazily hot and humid
Mornings are great in India. I am by far not a morning person, especially not an early bird as Dad but it is worth to wake up early in India. The weather is so much nicer and the early morning sunshine somewhat makes everything look much nicer. Today again we woke up early although not for the orange colors of the rising sun but to finally get the tickets to Amritsar. The twenty minutes spent on buying two tickets was a positive record and we had the whole day to spare. We decided to stay put, hang around the guest house, have some meal and more than some drinks on the roof top, basically charge our batteries for the following days. Our plan is to collect the bikes and then return to Delhi. We only have a single entry visa for 30 days so we have to figure out the extension of that too. 

After spending the whole day relaxing, eating and drinking we headed to the train station. To be honest I really wanted this to happen finally. The past weeks were terrible. I know I shouldn't complain but spending weeks without riding and touring around India without the bike on trains aren't something we planned. The train departed an hour later than it was scheduled and the air condition was set so low that I could hardly sleep but since it was taking us back to our bikes I have nothing to complain about. I don't speak Hindi apart from a few words but I could easily figure out that middle of the night one guy in our cabin started to make out with whoever on the phone. It was pretty funny, especially that others were aware of it too. The train arrived finally to Amritsar two hours late which was great as life just started up in the city, we got rickshaw right away to the border. With lots of hope and anticipation we arrived to the border where our bikes were locked down for the past two weeks. We got there 8 in the morning so still an hour wait. Finally at 9 am the border office opened and we started a very lengthy procedure to get the bikes back.  It was after 3 pm when we finally rode off and headed to Delhi.

More animals on the road than cars sometimes
Riding away from the border and in generally just being on the bike was the greatest feeling I felt for a long time, with everything sorted, only the distance ahead of us to worry about. Well, except traffic, driving in India is chaotic, Pakistan was bad already but India is challenging. We got stopped twice by the police that we had our headlights on at night, he asked us to turn it off as it disturbs the incoming traffic. Elephants and cows wandering randomly on the road are also common. It is demanding, takes lots of energy and attention but somehow also fun riding in India. To be honest, where else in the world you drive between elephant hordes on the highway. Due to the conditions we couldn't go as further south as we planned. Initially we wanted to get to Delhi but that plan slipped away with the late start already. Surprisingly we found a very decent and cheap hotel on the side of the road. We did actually plan to sleep in one of those free truck stops but for a few hundred rupees we decided to stay in a nice room with shower. The next day we headed towards Delhi, to read how we ended up in a presidential suit and changed the whole trip's itinerary please come back and read LOG ENTRY 35.

I love reading the continuation of the riders’ article and their road journey on bikes. The excitement can be clearly seen in the words. By the way that is a nice bike. The road may be rugged and the weather may be very warm and humid, but I can bet these are noting compared to the fun and excitement and adventure and education derived from the experience. I love and enjoy reading your articles. Please keep them coming. Best wishes to you.

    The Riders:

    Aurel Maracsko and his son Aurel Maracsko jr. 

    We are a father and son duo who loves riding motorcycles. Aurel Jr. or Tom is an enthusiast enduro rider and Aurel Sr. is more of the adventure rider. 

    Me, a combination of Tom Sawyer and the Little Prince, adventurer, dreamer and a crazily enthusiast rider. Jules Verne was the ultimate hero of my childhood, his foresight's of the future and exotic adventures fascinated me to a level which still influences me today. I believe the constant thirst for exploration and the need for learning is the key engine for every adult just as for every child.
