The plan was simple. Landing in LA, I had to be in Vail, Colorado to attend the GoPro games for 5 days, so I had some time to get there, and then some more days before I would head back to LA. I really wanted to visit Denver and also San Francisco so I made myself a loop that looked doable and interesting enough for two Indians to head out on. My 15-day journey would take me through four states that together accounted for a vast variety of changing landscapes.

Eagle Rider was a great help not only did they set everything up for me before I even left India but when the black bike started showing a fault in Denver. I gave a call to the local shop and they had a flat bed sent to me. They loaded the bike on it took me to the shop handed me a new motorcycle and had me ready to leave in less than an hour. Totally professional and well organised. It’s in a time like this you know how good an outfit really is. I didn’t loose any time at all.

One night in Vegas riding up and down the strip before getting my self a good dinner and a cold brew to celebrate the first day of riding in the US. Vegas seems more like a fun town to come without a motorcycle.

I may have bitten off a bit more than I could chew. The distances were large and my time there was short so I tried to cover as much ground as I could. The Indian was the perfect companion large comfy and planted on the road. I had a blast riding through feeling like a cowboy exploring this part of the world for the first time. The choice of bike for this ride was spot on.
