    Default Motorcycle Diaries, A doc's adventures.

    No, dont get the wrong idea, this thread has nothing to do with Che and his travels across South America but yes this thread does feature a doc, his bike and the crazy idea to see the country on a two wheeler. Some people have restless souls and no amount of comfort can bind them to a single place for a long time. I may be included in this category, more than a month at a place and it starts haunting me and the urge to move makes me sick. I cant say I have travelled as much as many of you here but I have covered many a miles in my life. Sometimes purposeless and just for the sake of travel and to keep the sickness away. Very little else makes me as happy as I am when on the road, no matter what mode of transport I take. So when did motorcycle enter in the scenario and why? Ok I stop it here, let us leave the details for my blog. I think these words of Ian Chadwick explain it quite well.


    “ If you've never ridden, you can't comprehend. But once you try it, you're hooked for life.




    I currently own a Suzuki GS 150, locally manufactured ,small displacement street motorcycle that is cheap, reliable and handles well off the pavement.

    My Rig

    Suzuki GS 150, nothing fancy but does the job.



    Here, in this space I will share my travel experiences and show you my beloved country as I see it from the back of a motorcycle saddle.




    For those of you who are not familiar with me and my strange sense of fun, here are the links of my previous rides I shared on this forum.

    4000 km trip

    Short ride

    Gwader trip

    In that hotel we met some very nice people, who were as excited about the next day's cricket semi-final match of Pakistan against India as rest of the country. They had actually bought and brought a new dish TV that day from Skardu just to watch that match and asked for our help to install it. Both of us had no idea but assembled the dish following manual and connected the receiver with TV set as instructed but no result. We kept trying for some time but nothing happened, so we gave up and they called a young boy from the neighborhood who had experience of these things. We had dinner and later pitched our tent outside hotel after getting permission from the owner. They were still trying to set the dish TV when we went to sleep, later in the morning we learned that they finally succeeded around 2 am.

    As far as i think... ppl like Doc and others they don't do this stuff for some recognizance or realization at national/international level... instead it is to fulfill the inner thirst of exploration and adventure...

    And like KhanOmer usually says... "Pakistan is the world's best kept secret..."

    Day 4. Shangrila and rest in hotel room:
    Breakfast, goodbyes and we were off for Skardu early in the morning. It didnt take us long to cover 40, 50 kms and after finding a hotel the first thing was a hot shower and clean clothes. Then we decided to see the Shangrila which is not too far away from Skardu and come back in time to see the semi final match. It was good to sit on a bench in the sun by the lake side and relax for a while.
