What Not to Do When Going for Your Solo Motorcycle Trip in India

Traveling solo is a feat everyone with an adventurous bone in their body should attempt at least once in their lifetime. But is going alone as romantic as it sounds? Well, that’s what this article discusses – how to avoid risking your safety while enjoying your lone journey.

There are fewer pleasures in life than going on a solo motorcycle trip in a country where language, culture – and often landscape – change every 100 miles. The cult of motorcycle road trips has been around in India for quite a while; however, most of these trips involve groups – the solo rider is a rare breed.

If you are one of those who have been inspired by the stories of epic journeys of those who found their calling in riding across country roads with no one but their wheels and the cool air for company, here is what you should avoid at all costs when you finally hit the gravel.

Welcome to this week's edition of Black Book Market Insights, with in-depth analysis of used car and truck valuation trends and insights straight from the auction lanes. Click here to download the full report.

 

In this week’s report, the Black Book editors saw data that showed a brief change in car retention in early July before car patterns quickly returned to a more “summer normal” rate of depreciation this past week.

“After an aberration last week, car values continued their decline at a higher pace as compared to trucks. Entry Level Cars dropped the most while Compact SUVs retained their value,” said Anil Goyal, Vice President of Automotive Valuation and…

On This Day In History

July 29, 1958: NASA created

On this day in 1958, the U.S. Congress passes legislation establishing the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), a civilian agency responsible for coordinating America’s activities in space. NASA has since sponsored space expeditions, both human and mechanical, that have yielded vital information about the solar system and universe. It has also launched numerous earth-orbiting satellites that have been instrumental in everything from weather forecasting to navigation to global communications.

NASA was created in response to the Soviet Union’s October 4, 1957 launch of its first satellite, Sputnik I. The 183-pound, basketball-sized satellite orbited the earth in 98 minutes. The Sputnik launch caught Americans by surprise and sparked fears that the Soviets might also be capable of sending missiles with nuclear weapons from Europe to America. The United States prided itself on being at the forefront of technology, and, embarrassed, immediately began developing a response, signaling the start of the U.S.-Soviet space race.

On November 3, 1957, the Soviets launched Sputnik II,which carrieda dog named Laika. In December, America attempted to launch a satellite of its own, called Vanguard, but it exploded shortly after takeoff. On January 31, 1958, things went better with Explorer I, the first U.S. satellite to successfully orbit the earth. In July of that year, Congress passed legislation officially establishing NASA from the National Advisory Committee for Aeronautics and other government agencies, and confirming the country’s commitment to winning the space race. In May 1961, President John F. Kennedydeclared thatAmerica should put a man on the moon by the end of the decade. On July 20, 1969, NASA’s Apollo 11 mission achieved that goal and made history when astronaut Neil Armstrong became the first person to set foot on the moon, saying “That’s one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind.”

NASA has continued to make great advances in space exploration since the first moonwalk, including playing a major part in the construction of the International Space Station. The agency has also suffered tragic setbacks, however, such as the disasters that killed the crews of the Challenger space shuttle in 1986 and the Columbia space shuttle in 2003. In 2004, President George Bush challenged NASA to return to the moon by 2020 and establish “an extended human presence” there that could serve as a launching point for “human missions to Mars and to worlds beyond.”
