Well our M.D. Ian Georgeson decided on a road trip with a difference, an All Terrain experience on Royal Enfield motorbikes in India, “It’s been on my bucket list for some time and when a few friends indicated interest we decided to pack albeit small bags and do the tour which would take us through rural India” he said.

In his words it would be a totally immersive experience but they would not try to take on too much in the time allocated as they wanted to enjoy the unique texture and spirit of india. “ We can always go back in a few years,it will all still be there” said Ian.

They are spending a good deal of time in the villages to truly experience the culture and people, ideally they would like to avoid the larger over populated cities and enjoy the famed hospality of the rural people.

India is everything,it’s a heady mix of smells such as incense, food and spices, colourful saris,beeping horns, animals and flowers. It’s a country with a population of over 1,2 billion inhabitants, which will both inspire and challenge the first time visitor, but as Ian put it” We are going to embrace the diverse cultures and engage with people- we are going to immerse ourselves in the experience that is India”.

On his return Ian will share more pictures and details of the trip , but if you have ever been to India or the east please share your experiences at www.allterrain.co.za

My first 4x4 was a Nissan Hardbody thereafter I started travelling all over the country. In 1992 we held a big 4x4 day with hundreds of Nissan families, and then the 4x4 bug really bit. A friend Monty Brett and I started running 4x4 courses at the Hennops Off-road Trail just outside of Johannesburg. At first we offered day-and-a-half courses that started on Friday afternoon and finished on Saturday afternoon. Hannes Grobler the Rally Ace regularly assisted, and we reached a nice balance between our two styles and our skills.
