Bitten By The Bullet by Steve Krzystyniak and Karen Goa

Buy a copy from AmazonThis is the story of how Steve Krzystyniak and his partner Lily (both long-time global wanderers from New Zealand), came to set up and operate one of the many Bullet-based tour companies which take small parties through the north-western Indian state of Rajasthan. They had such a great trip themselves that they decided to take the plunge with their own touring business using Enfield bikes, encountering wild animals and wild people along the way.

This 189-page softback offers two distinct storylines -- the main one follows a particular tour group's adventures over a three-week period, which is underpinned by Steve Krzystyniak's account of how he and Lily took on the bureaucracy of India in order to achieve their dream. The text is illustrated by a small colour section.

'I've loaned this book to a variety of friends, bikers and non bikers who have all loved it. It's a colourful and entertaining account of some of the highlights experienced in Rajastahn by Steve and his partner Lily in their ongoing joint role as tour leaders.

'Mounted on their trusty bikes the intrepid duo negotiate their way through teeming cities and isolated villages -- visiting temples, palaces and bustling markets en route. Their encounters with people and places, including some memorable skirmishes with Indian bureaucracy, make fascinating reading -- and offer a tantalising glimpse into this most alluring country.'
