Riding in Ooty

A few days ago I came across some old negatives of one of my first rides in the southern part of India. I made a call to the good people at Royal Enfield and they lent me a Thunderbird. I picked up the bike from the Bangalore showroom and rode out towards Ooty. I rode past Mysore, Gundulpet past Bandipur and up the 36 hairpin turns from Masinagudi. I spent a few days riding around Ooty and Coonoor and enjoyed every moment of it. Here are some pictures and two videos (taken from an old Nokia phone so they are not the best) from that ride.
