Finally I’m on a roll with publication of stories about my 10-day road-test of the 2015 Indian Roadmaster in South Africa in May, 2015.

I’ve written various versions of the story. The first appeared in the December 2015 issue of Robb Report. A second appeared in the South China Morning Post.

These are pure travel pieces. But I was concerned to have some more technical piece published too. One such is to appear in the February 2016 issue of Rider. And others in forthcoming issues of Australian Road Rider and Bike (UK). Stay tuned here!

So I was delighted when the editors at Sawubona, South African Airways‘ in-flight magazine, said they wanted to publish the piece in their motoring section. That allowed me to provide some detail about the bike’s superb design, manufacture and handling.

This story will be placed in South African Airways’ flights beginning January 1, 2016. A great start to the New Year!
