    Default A4000+ Kms long motorcycle journey across Pakistan



    "FROM SILVER SANDS AND WARM BEACHES TO SNOW CAPED MOUNTAINS,HIGH PASSES AND GLACIERS"









    (A 4000+ kms
    ,
    29 days long journey across Pakistan on a Suzuki GS 150 motorcycle)






















    Wealth i seek not;







    Love nor a friend to trust;






    All i seek is the heaven above and road below me.







    These are verses from a poem, but i am not sure if i have got them right, still if someone ever asked me what did i want from life? Most probably the above lines would be my answer. Nothing gives me more pleasure than hitting the road with a thought of long journey ahead, add the freedom of motorcycle riding to it and the picture completes, almost perfect. With the same spirit i left home on 1st of this month from Karachi. I will post the details alongwith the pictures day wise, from day 1 to day 28. For the details of my preparations for the trip see the short ride report i have already posted. For the first 2100 kms i rode solo, then was joined by other members of
    PAKISTAN BIKERS CLUB
    in Islamabad for rest of the trip.
    I work only because it pays for three F's. Food for me, Fuel for my bike and Film for my camera.

    Three of our members had a plan to return from here due to other commitments but Khan sb didnt want them to go back without experiencing camping so dcided to continue till Jhalkad where we were to camp for the night. It turned out to be an excellent decision, I dont know about others but for me that ride from Naran to Jhalkad was out of the world experience, one of the best rides I have ever done. It was quite scenic but all others were so eager to reach Jhalkad before dark that they didnt give any margin for stops. I was enjoying so much that I didnt worry about anything and rode at my own pace.Thank u Khan sb once again because any other time and that ride wouldnt have been the same, time of the day was big factor in making that ride so magical.

    Zhob to D I Khan is 225 kms and the road is just fine if not very good. It took me little over 3 hours to complete that section. It gets very interesting in the area of Danasar where it enters the Suleman range.

    Then I think this is the shortest route for Quetta for people in ISB/RWP. Hows the security situation there?

    I didnt face any problem there apart from D I Khan trouble I mentioned. But people try to avoid this route due to its proximity to Waziristan and the situation in DI Khan but I think it is not that bad and u r right about this being the shortest route.
