    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.

    There was much more ice, water and mud than we expected or were prepared for and had quite a testing time on few occassions. Deep mud was particularly challenging because of the limited ground clearance of street bikes we rode. It was comparatively easier for me because I was used to offroad biking and secondly I had knoby rear tire.

    Signs of some rough riding are evident

    There were lot of water crossings some small some large , some passable some otherwise


    A4000+ Kms long motorcycle journey across Pakistan - DSC00750 width600px








    Sometimes we had to carry the bikes across. Here stream was deep flow was quite fast, we found another group of bikers who helped tke our bikes across, I was light to reach the scene and by that time all were across, so didnt think enough and tried to ride the stream across, water was too deep and too fast than I anticipated and the bike stalled in the middle, thank God Dr sb and Tahir were close to help me out otherwise I would have lost some of my luggage if not bike in those cold glacial waters.

    Reached Chilas in the afternoon, we were tired because of tough riding in the day and it was too hot down there to continue, so decided to stay for the night in Chilas.

    DAY 20, JULY 20, 2009.









    Chilas To Passu( Approx 300 kms)







    Left early to cover the hottest part in the cool of the morning. Road was under construction and riding was not easy in many sections specially when there were big trucks to give us company.
