Details

A total of 8,400 miles from Manchester, UK to Chennai, India, in just under seven weeks. A challenge for most vehicles, but on an antiquated 1953 Royal Enfield ....

"Your bike belongs in a museum, not on the road," was how one doubter tried to discourage Gordon May from undertaking this journey. Despite intense heat in excess of 40C, a crash in the Baluchistan desert and some of the worst roads and driving standards on the planet, Gordon's old Bullet did indeed make it triumphantly to Chennai.

In his book, Gordon describes in detail the restoration of his motorcycle and the build up to departure, the larger-than-life characters he met and the many challenges he faced. He also recounts the more personal highs and lows life on the road. Above all, Overland To India is a heartwarming story that illustrates human kindness and hospitality and encourages other riders to take their own motorcycles on a long-distance journey.

I know Gordon personally from all the classic shows sprinkled around the country,and his books are wonderfully written in a clear and uplifting way that made me almost feel like I was with him on the journey. He takes time to bring you on bard right from the off with the ups and downs of his motorcycles problems and fixes and a lovely insight into his personal challenges, I truly found myself holding my breath at times! Great Reading. (Posted on 11/01/2017)
