    Default Youngi's Adventures: The Echoing Green (AJK)

    Youngi's Adventures: The Echoing Green (AJK) - nWMaXe0

    Asslam-o-Alaikum:


    I have never used the word "Adventure" in any of my trips despite of being into touring from last 4 years and have covered almost every location of Pakistan on my bike with an exception of North. But this trip was truly a masterpiece when it comes to adventure.

    Faced flat tyre, shivering cold breeze, heavy rain, hailstorm, running bike over camelion, racing with horses, broken rear shoe in drum, slipped chain, sleeping in truck wala hotel with insanely poor hygenie, insanely long heard of sheep's occupying road, eating canned food, having chai infront of indian occupied kashmir, witnessed a fellow jeep accident, group politics and what not you name it and we faced it.

    But indeed Kashmir's beauty is so enchanting it overcome all the hurdles.It was a complete adventure to visit the undisturbed beauty of beautiful Pakistan.

    We were three bikers from different regions and localities but pooled in our ideas and effort through pakwheels platform.

    1. Imran Afzal from Lahore (Atlas Honda Pridor 100)
    2. Muhammad Imran from Sialkot (Ravi Piaggio 125)
    3. Sikander Akram from Islamabad (Ravi Piaggio 125)

    Preface:

    It was decided that we will leave at 3rd morning of eid and return by next Monday in anycase. As Imran Afzal bhai has some important project ongoing for which he had to report in any case. We planned to do camping so we distributed stuff and duties in-time to avoid any confusion.

    1. Imran Afzal is responsible for bringing cooking posts, utensils, pans and stove
    2. Muhammad Imran is responsible for bringing all the stuff like canned food, cleaning stuff, puncture kit and tool kit
    3. I was responsible for arranging camps and camping related stuff

    Every detail will be shared stepwise so that it wont ruin the taste of keeping interest in whole story expense details will be shared at the end of the thread as well

    Locations Covered: Islamabad, Muzaffarabad, Kundal Shahi, Shardah, Keel --> Taobat

    Day 1 = Lahore to Islamabad
    Day 2 = Islamabad to
    Kundalshahi
    Day 3 = Kundalshahi to
    Keel
    Day 4 = Keel to
    Phulwai
    Day 5 = Phulwai to
    Taobat and back to Keel
    Day 6 = Keel to
    Shardah and Shardah to Islamabad


    So here's a small intro of bikers riding to devour the mesmerizing and enchanting beauty of Echoing Green i.e Kashmir (Neelum Valley)

    Full gang with loaded stuff

    So had to use thier stuff and it was i cant explain.

    So while having Nashta, we decided imran afzal will take a local transport from Phulwai to Taobat while i will go solo and hunt for puncture wala and most importantly tube. We were told that there's a place near by (45min) drive from there we can get deluxe tube without any issues.

    So i left after pumping the rear tyre in order to avoid delaying the other guys !!

    While passing by a village and at this place i started realizing that the rear tyre is again going low on pressure, so shifted body weight towards front

    After waiting for 15 mins the guy came, i was happy finally i have some authentic puncture shop and will find tube, but sadly no Honda Deluxe tube still while doing gupshup he fixed the puncture which was actually an old puncture. But the guy actually did the same thing which those amateurs did he again cutted the tube while fitting it result was as soon as he finished pumping the tyre it went flat again.

    So after waiting for 35 more mins. MMA came i asked him to goto helmet and buy tube while i opened the rear tyre myself again and fixed the puncture and i was very hopefull that its not going anywhere this time.

    Sadly MMA came and said no tube in helmet even and here iam with one tube discarded and another new tube being cutted two times by silly mechanics I pumped the tyre and went with MMA but it was holding air this time longer as i anticipated

    Now one of the funny things that happened was MMA was holding my bikes key which he forgot and kicked his bike and went away without turning back while i was shouting from back "Imran bhai chabiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii"
