Safety & Kit List
Your safety is of paramount importance to us. The road conditions and temperature changes between the Indian plains and the Hill Stations and the high altitude driving in the Himalayas can all lead to problems if ill equipped. We make it easy as possible for you.
Our local team fits all our bikes with everything that you could possibly need for this adventure of a lifetime and are maintained to the highest standards.
We carry all the relevant spares and equipment that you will need in our support vehicles, and our camping setup is done to maximise your comfort and safety from the weather conditions.
