Video: 2,600 Miles Around the Himalayan Mountains himalayan mountain dirt bike trek 635x356

It’s Thursday afternoon, and you are probably sitting in a cube filing TPS reports when you should be out riding. Might we suggest a stroll around the Himalayas?

If the bossman overlords won’t let you out, then here is the next best thing, as Adam Riemann and his father documented their 4,500 km (2,600 mile), 21-day, multi-national trek across some of the world’s most treacherous, and beautiful, mountain roads.

The narration and story are a bit tough, but the sights are worth the price of admission alone. From the crowded streets of India to the empty solitude of the mountain passes, the Riemann boys seem to have hit every extreme.

We imagine there many more stories that the film doesn’t capture in its roughly six-minute format. To hear those though, you probably will have to undertake the trip yourself. Bring your Pops along too, if you go.

    Its actually a very old video. And the source originally is Hero MotoCorp’s YouTube account; and their bike ridden by him — Hero Impulse.

    Old or new what ever, I have never seen it before and also not a lover of dirt bikes thought it was kinda cool…
