    Default short ride report

    Some time has passed since I had taken a long ride, so kind of restlessness


    was settling in. Matters got worse when the mega trip to Khunjarab got


    delayed for the month. Longing for the road and wilderness was driving


    me crazy and i had to take a ride despite very high temperatures in our


    part of the country. I was waiting for an opportunity and when it presented itself,


    i grabbed it with both hands. I took two days leave for a family matter and got sorted


    out pretty soon and i was left with a day and half of free time plus recent rains had improved


    the weather a bit, though it was still hot. This trip was to serve another purpose, it was


    a chance to test the equipment and luggage system i was planning to use for


    mega trip.


    Enough b**"'*t now few pics.


    The following few pics r for PBC members


    as i promised them. my prep for the mega trip


    saddle bags (not of very good quality but hopefully last the mega trip)

    Packed, loaded and ready to go



    short ride report - 055







    At this point a strange thing happened, all ready to go when i mounted the bike, suddenly i realised that i was not wearing the gloves. I dismounted and looked for them thinking that i put them on seat but were not there. I looked around the campsite but still couldnt find them. Atlast unpacked the luggage and looked for them inside but the same result. I clearly remembered wearing them to the campsite last night but couldnt find them this time. Only explanation i could come up with was that i left them inside tent and packed it. It was tightly packed and couldnt make up my mind to open it in the ever increasing heat of the day. Lets hope i find them in there when i open the tent next time otherwise it will remain an unexplained mystery. Total effort took almost 20 to 25 minutes of my time.






    Track mostly goes through the dry river bed this time of the year



    short ride report - 058







    Only fresh tracks were mine from the last night or local father and son who rode the camel in the morning

    Mostly the track is good for third and fourth gear but some times it becomes too rocky or deep gravel


    1st and 2nd gear only

    these r very common in the rivers of Balochistan

    There were quite a few tracks running in the riverbed as the track changes every season with the change of water course and couple of times i took wrong one as here


    picture cant show it properly(should have chosen another angle) but there is 3 to 4 feet sharp drop ahead of bike with no possibility of taking loaded bike down it and i had to turn back

    new road was not open for all traffic but small vehicles were an exception



    short ride report - 077?t1248813502







    I wanted to stay in Uthel until the day cooled off a bit but had to leave in the early afternoon, it was good in a way that i avoided the late afternoon sand storms and secondly tested the bike if it was good to run in the hot conditions as was planning to leave for the mega trip in few days.




    in the total the return trip was little less then 300 kms.









    keep looking for more interesting ride reports in the future.

    AOA

    Lovebikes you are really adventurous. I would appreciate your efforts.
    Would you like to share about the accessories that you installed on your gs-150.
    I am especially concerned about carrier rack and saddle bags.
    From where I can get accessories like this and their price/make, as I guess those are not availlable here in RWP/ISD.

    Dude, like the other posters, I must ask what made you gather the courage to CAMP alone. I am also camping enthusiastic and since I am back to Pakistan, I am afraid of camping. My three tents are waiting for fresh air
