    Default Tough bike ride: how to break your hands, arms and back

    Had a great idea of going to MURREE thru pir sohawa road. Then had an even better idea of going by an unkept road which passes thru neelan bhotu. Usually taken by 4x4 enthusiasts. Ive been to babusar and this was much much worse. 3 hours of gruelling off road. As im typing this, my arms and hands are in pain, so you can imagine what kind of ride this was . If anyone wants a challenge, this is the *road* to ride on.

    the route:

    what you can see in pictures is nothing. the track was simply dangerous at some points, with downward slopes that had big lose stones in them. the trail wasnt faring well either because the track was in extremely bad shape, but the rider was in comfort whereas my bike kept bouncing up and down. i would not take that track on my GS again, thats for sure

    if u haven't tried the road which goes straight from monal than u should check it as soon as ur and your bikes parts stop hurting , beautiful road with beautiful sceneries. And do share some more pics of ur tour so we can see how brutal it was.

    Lol didnt take pictures on the rough parts, bike say utarnay ki himmat nai thi :-) only stopped at scenic points. Yea we have already explored the normal pir sohawa road ahead of monal. This one goes to neelan bhotu but we kept going till we hit ghora gali

    Great ... Well done. As far as I can see, you skipped the Kohala Bala road and turned from Rupper to Phalla (correct me if I am wrong). How far did you have to go on dirt track to get on to Lora road? From there onwards, it must have been OK (mines on your right side). It was fine for my dug-dug 125 last year. What is the situation of bridge repair work over stream before Lora exit near Ghora Gali? Cheers.
    Just an ordinary guy ... @Mak_pk

    Cant remember that much :p yes we took the road that goes downwards from pir sohawa road and leads to neelan bhotu. From there on we kept going towarss phalla and lora hazara. Once we reached phalla the off road track was over and it was pretty much smooth from there onwards. I must say coming back from ghora gali road was a joy with beautifully paved roads and gorgeous scenery. Cant wait to return to the offroad track once i have an offroad bike

    What is surprising ia that during all this torture my GS's tyres did not get a single puncture alhamdulillah. It was an idiotic decision but it paid off and we had tons of fun (at points i wanted to shout out loud because of the excitement)
