[edit] Information

Our Guy in India Guy Martin sets off on a 1000-mile motorbike trip, exploring a rarely-seen side of modern India as he heads to one of the world's maddest bike races Oil-stained Grimsby hero Guy Martin has set his heart on a trip around India. Not the usual kind of TV trip but one by his rules. He wants to buy a Royal Enfield motorbike, a machine largely forgotten here but venerated in India, and ride it to Goa, where he plans to take part in a famous local race – and win it. Before he even gets to the buying-a-bike scene Martin has immersed himself in the local vibe, stripping off to have his clothes ironed by a street vendor. He makes a hash of the price negotiation on the bike. But he ends up with a glorious-looking machine, which he first takes to see Asia’s biggest truck yard (Martin is a lorry mechanic at heart) and then, via train, to the edge of the Himalayas to indulge his other great love – tea.

[edit] Part 1

In the first of two programmes, the daredevil rides with a 50-strong biker gang, visits Asia's biggest truck yard and finds himself completely out of his comfort zone.

[edit] Part 2

In Part two Guy Martin visits Mumbai, where more skyscrapers are being built than anywhere else in the world, and clambers 833ft to the top of India's tallest building, the Imperial. Back on ground level, the daredevil visits a slum where a million people live in the space of one square mile, before experiencing a downpour on his Royal Enfield with the arrival of the monsoons. To avoid slow-moving and dangerous roads, he makes the final leg of his 1,000-mile journey by sea, on his way to compete in Rider Mania.
