A friendly stop by the Karnataka Police Force just outside Mangalore. I overtook their police van and a few minutes later, they were flashing their lights and waving me over. I thought, 'OK, here we go, first police stop in India...' but no worries, they were just curious and friendly and wanted to take some photos and then started telling about me to a passing journalist ;)

I had a good ride through northern Kerala and when not stuck behind trucks, the twisties were a thrill to ride.

I reached Udipi and met up with the United Riders Udipi Bullet motorcycle club, having been connected by the Madras Bulls. The brotherhood here took fantastic care of me and it was good to share stories from the road :)
