    Default The wind, bike & heart; Tour De North

    Its all about the freedom of life on the road, a personal adventure that leads a biker to the highlands of North Pakistan. I done this trip during the flood of 2010, infact it got flooded in the midst of my this journey. This adventure started with passion, hope, fear of unseen and ended giving experience & memories of good times to be recalled. It also helped me discover myself and taught me lessons to be remembered.

    Some Statistics:
    Days Spent: 35
    Distance Covered: 6300km (home to home)

    It was almost sunset time. Pics were going blur due to low light and we were not having any DSLR or powerful Flash so no more pics till Muzaffarabad. Our target was to reach Muzaffarabad, so rode some part of Kohala-Muzaffarabad road in dark with headlight on too. Reached Muzaffarabad, took a room in River view hotel near Gillani Chowk. After refreshing, did some wandering in the bazar of Muzaffarabad and had dinner at Gillani Resturant. Later went to bed. Since we were tired, therefore we got sleep after selling horses.
    END of DAY2.

    Now going pir Channasi, famous tourist spot near Muzaffarabad. Can't recall its height from sea level but its one of the steapest ascend i ever negotiated with wheels. I think you get a height gain of 3000 to 4000 feet in just about 30 kilometers. Once i went there on a Bedford bus(Public transport) and conducter kept filling its radiator with water after each few turns. FYI that bus just goes uptill Danna Mughlan which is the last settelment. Only on sundays, bus goes uptill Pir Channasi top.
    I was afraid that would my bike be able to negotiate that steap ascend with two passengers on it but thanks God it didn't let me down.
    Pics of the road to Pir Channasi; not in a good shape.

    FK, Bro! After having such a Broader Experience at Forums (perhaps more than the Age of some of our young members here) I still could not figure out 'a Happy Balance' between Slang and the one with Grammatically correct (Neither it was anything close to my Major ) . Ofcourse, English is also not my first language. It could also be something like 'You cannot please Everyone' and ofcourse we are not attempting(here) for a BA in English Literature...The only style I hate is 'Sarcastic Projections in Slang', something that seems childish & immature. So do not worry about it...

    I will ofcourse, visit some places you are going to mention here. It's embarassing despite a 'first class citizen' (Desi) of AJK, I have very limited Acquaintance with it.

    Looking Forward towards the remainder of this Travel Log..
