    Default Bike Trip to Head Balloki + Rana Resorts [Completed]

    -- THREAD COMPLETED --

    Today, on 20th March 2014, I completed a bike trip from Lahore to Head Balloki + Rana Resorts. I am in Lahore since last week and squeezed a day free for this bike trip.

    I was with a friend, a fellow PWer @smartsyco We had been planning for a bike trip since my last couple of visits to Lahore but nothing could be finalized before. But this time, it was a success.

    The ride was Honda CD70. Camera used is a Canon P&S.

    Here are few pictures as a teaser, detailed narrations with pictures are coming soon.

    Right beside these snack shops, there is a Trampoline Bungee jump area where a boy was taking its ride. Took his snap and moved to advance further on jungle trail. There were more self praise and warning signs for discipline.

    As we continued our journey, we were intercepted by two traffic policemen on Phool Nagar city road. I was riding the motorcycle at that time. He asked for my license and I gave him my "Karachi" based driving license. When I first handed it over to him, he was a bit confused seeing it like I have given him something from other planet. He kept watching it for good couple of minutes and then handed it back and let us go without any further questions.

    As soon as the PhoolNagar city road hits the Balloki road, we have to take a right. Rana Resort people have put many sign boards, graffiti so it won't be hard for anyone to spot the correct way.

    On Balloki Rd, we were again intercepted by two policemen (kalay walay). They asked for bike papers and we handed them the registration copy. It was not on friend's name but on previous seller's name. So he gave a threat that our bike will be seized until the real owner on papers won't appear and started to write name, address on a plain paper.

    We didn't utter a single word and he kept writing. He was expecting us to negotiate to let us go but we remained mute. When he was almost finished with writing, he took my friend away and said, "tussi kin chakkaran wich khajjal ho ge, 200 rupayya kaddo".. My friend said, 200 nahi, 100 le le.. and he was like de do yaar hor jao.. doja shikar pharan deyo..

    So we handed him a red note and kept going on Balloki road.

    (Sorry no pics of both these events)

    Walikum salam. Thanks for nice words. And don't worry about the boy, he is suspended by harness and big elastic bands, thats why its called bungee jump trampoline.
