On the way to Agra I asked the driver to stop as I thought I'd seen a cub.
As it happens it was an indian copy, a Bajaj.
These are the lowest of the low as everyone has Hero 125's, automatics or the occasional Enfield.
As I was taking the photo, six guys in the open fronted shop spotted me. They couldn't believe I was photographing such a machine. They came out dragging the gentleman who owned it, laughing all the while and pushing him in front of the camera next to the bike.
They then wanted to know if I wanted to buy it.
Bahnu our guide told me that they'll be pulling this guy's leg about it for days.
I video'd the whole thing.

Still not a dicky bird sign of a single cub but the thumpers are never very far away.
Went in to a shop by the side of the road, aka fire station, where the only vehicle was this Bullet.
The rear has spaces for extinguishers each side.

Not a single cub seen on my trip.
Lots of Hero 125's and about 1 in 75 bikes was an Enfield, mostly 350cc.

And in the airport .....

Unfortunately tis the end of "The Curry and Cub Run" as we flew back yesterday. The Virgin Atlantic flight was actually cancelled but that wasn't a problem as we'd been to one of the local bazaars and .......
