In February 2008 Simon and Russell Lister rode 3000 kilometers around the state of Rajasthan India on Royal Einfield motorcycles.
The journey took them over mountains, across deserts, visiting palaces, forts and temples riding through cities, towns and villages.
Along the way they visited a camel fair with 60,000 camel and cattle, that were traded by the locals of the region. They also visited a 900 year old fort with walls that stretched over 39 kilometers with a width of 6 meters, big enough to allow horses and carriages to ride across them. Also temples that were built over 2000 years ago and palaces that housed kings and rulers of the Mogul era.
From this region the culture is very colorful, with rich bright turbans, saris and scarfs, smells of spices and incense, and the sounds of camels, traffic and a billion voices.
Also included with Rajasthan is the region of Ladakh a journey through Indias Himalayas in July 2009. A three week ride again on Royal Enfield motorcycles over the highest roads in the World, capturing the life of the local people from this region.
