CLASSIC BIKE ADVENTURES ® - Winter 2012

Namaste, Tashi Delek, Julley, Sawatdee

Ayubovan…


... we are happy to announce our Winter 2012 newsletter. Here we go...

First, like always, a personal message from Roadcaptain Peter:

The year is coming to an end; we have moved down to our  Winter-headquarter, "Casa Tres Amigos" in Goa.

With pleasure we are looking back on last year, being the most successful ever. Never before have we done this many tours, partied that hard and had that many adventures!

The awesome Mustang Pilot Tour in autumn requires a special mention here, as well as the two regular Magic Nepal tours, thre Bhutan and three Goa & South India cruises and of course, last not least the spectacular Thailand tour.

All those tours have been managed and overseen from my farm house Casa Kath Kuni in the Kullu Valley….

My operational freedom of movement was temporarily limited, due to a certain tree, that I did not cut and I certainly did not snatch up the wood. 
The Blog to this bizarre story

Meanwhile my passport has been returned to me and I am enjoying my regained freedom of moving about…

For this winter there are some exciting tours in our program like South- India, Sri Lanka and Thailand.

You will find an overview of "available" bikes right here:

http://www.classic-bike-india.de/termine_preise.html

I would like to specially point out to you two adventurous tours:

Our third Tibet pilot tour from  Tue. 28.05.- Wed. 12.06.2013 (16 days):
Cruising through Tibet with our touring Bullets, together with our own excellent Nepalese camping crew and...

The second Mustang / Mukthinath pilot tour in November:

Just recently the Mustang pilot tour has reached their final destination point, the holy tempel city of Mukthinath. Here is the Link to the first impressions of that tour! The tour will be repeated in 2013, with a slightly different but improved routing. Date: 27.10.- 10.11. 2013

Additionally back in our program and still open to bookings: The  "Magic Nepal" tour in October:
Link : http://www.classic-bike-india.de/touren/nepal.html

The tours for next summer are almost completely booked out; except one date: 10.08. - 25.08.2013, we have four bikes left for this one.
Five tours climbing up to the highest passes of the Himalayas are to be planned by our Himalaya crew for 2013. This year we will limit the amount of bikes to 15 per group.

And there is good news from Goa:

Our Casa Tres Amigos in Goa will be fully operational for the  P1000592season 2013-14 by our staff and crew.
We just made this decision to everone's delight.

For this winter we have very good occupancy, many old friends will visit again and we are going to have a great time, relaxing and cruising around on our Bullets in beautiful Goa.
There are still some romantic cottages available for the time between 20. of February until mid-April.
Two cottages and rooms will be upgraded to AC standard.

We got very lucky this year:

Biking, Trekking and Relaxing

Tours in Indian "Tyrol", Himachal Pradesh
and relaxing at Peter's  Casa Kath Kuni


For almost a year now we are residing in our new place in the Indian Himalayas.

We have made extensions to our farm house, added some guest cottages and are momentarily busy putting up a nice garden and improving road access.

We will be needing another year, after that we would like to offer our  "Casa Kath Kuni" officially to our friends and guests as a holiday destination.

In April, May and June 2013 we will be inviting our biker friends for the first time to stay at or new residence in the Kullu valley and to roam around the surrounding mountain roads.

We'll make sure you have a good time!

Here is an album with some impressions from our first year

Grand Tibet motorbike - round trip - pilot tour

Dates are fixed: Tue 28.05.- Wed 12.06.2013 (17 days)

An extension of our pilot tours of 2012 - with a side trip to south-eastern central Tibet, a partly forested Kham at just under 3.000m (highlights are Draksum lake, Tashi Gang and the Serkym pass, plus Chongye, the "Valley of the Tombs of Kings".
 
Eight overnight stays at hotels in Tibetan heritage hotels and seven campsite overnight stays in tents are planned. We have our own Nepali camp crew that cooks our lunches. 

Thus we can really stop and camp out at the nicest of places. On this tour we will be visiting the wild Khara valley, right at the foot of Mount Makalu for the first time. The tour ends in Kathmandu.

From there we will be cruising downwards from Mount Everest base camp to the Tibet-Nepal border where we stay overnight at "The Last Resort".

As always we do this tour exclusively with our trusted Bullets 500cc.

This will be the best Tibet routing ever! Flights from Kathmandu to Lhasa are already included in the price.

We will have more time to get aclimatized this time, climbing up to 4.000m only after eight days, which makes it comfortable for everybody, even for the "flatlanders", no dizziness or headaches...

Tour price for bikers 4.950 € and 4.450 € for pillion drivers who can always choose to ride in the jeep for a change.

Flights from Europe to Kathmandu are extra.

Latest news about our project to help seven orphaned siblings in Nagar, Kullu valley.

Their mother died giving birth to her seventh child, the kids are now between four and 14 years old, all are attending the local primary school, their grandparents taking care of them. 

Recently their father died in a working accident in the forest, of course he was uninsured. The family is in dire straits.

What to do? The children need regular support so that they can still attend school, otherwise the eldest would have to leave and look out for a job in the "unskilled labour" sector to feed his younger brothers and sisters.

I took it upon myself to get them through the first couple of months. By now we have found four partners, who in a combined effort, will make sure there will be 200€ coming towards them per month to guarantee the family's well being and survival and give the kids an education to become self reliant at some later stage.

 


Here is a link to Peter´s Blog

Those of you who feel inclined to support project that is genuinely making sense, do write to Peter to get more information about this.

 


Latest News

The project: "Help those that they can help themselves" can start as scheduled next February. 

Between September until December we have received well above 2.400 € in donations.

We have received some questions about our next big Sauerland Classic Bike Adventure Party.

Originally in 2013 the next big party would be due, but since  2014 we will be celebrating our 25 year jubilee, we decided to postpone the party to Summer 2014. You can bet on that!
