Hi there, I was a member on bikeforums a long time ago, now I'm back because, well, I've missed you, and secondly I'm planning a Himalayan tour beginning in late April and wanted to instigate a little networking. I have been studying the excellent book "Himalaya by Bike" by Trailblazer publications. A great and so recent (!) resource.
Please feel free to contact me with any tales, tips, stories you may have about the Himalaya.
