    After I got out of Pokhara , I decided to go to back to Kathmandu but taking a detour via Chittawan and Tribhuvan Highway
    I was going to do it all in one day but the Enfield wouldn't go faster and the road was horrible . So i decided to stay in Hetuada ,a town to the south of Kathmandu.

    Yes Kudos to You Mate! The Kiwis were on the Honda CT110. These are called Postie Bikes in NZ and Australia as the Postal Service uses them for Delivering Mail. They were well used by Farmers over the last 20 or 30 Years and have changed little since. Started out as a 90ccc then upgraded to the 110cc. Ultra Reliable and very Tough!!! Those Guys had obviously modified their Bikes for the Journey with an Extra Fuel Tank added in the normal position as the standard tank is under the seat like the Dreams here.
    Cheap way to Travel and I bet a lot of fun, so long as everyone is on the Same Bikes it really doesn't matter what they are! Top Stuff.

    Looks like you had a great time Art.
    Maybe your next trip could be a postie bike ride around Aus :)
    Using the ubiquitous (in Aus) postie bike as an adventure bike is not so unusual and there's a mob in Brisbane who specialise in them.
