Hello, here are some photographs of me and my friends riding scooters to the highest village on earth (approx 14500ft). We rode a LML Vespa, Bajaj Chetak and a Kinetic Honda DX (two stroke). This village is in the Himalayas and is called Kaumic.

You should. I'm now part of a company which organizes guided tours in the Himalayas Royal Enfield Classic 500s. It's the best way to ride around the himalayas. I don't know if its allowed to post the company website links here so I wont take my chances.

Brilliant stuff, I deny anyone to say they are not jealous. Just like the old saying

it's more fun to ride a slow bike fast than a fast bike slow.

Beautiful scenery, great pics. I didn't believe the first one at first...looks like a Photoshopped background. Pic #7...the scooters enjoyed the view too. Are you still working for the company? This is a fantastic idea for a road trip.
