    Default Rapid and unexpected Tour to Bhimber (AJK) on three Suzuki gs150's

    Well this was the third tour for me on GT road. participants were as follows:

    1. Me at my Suzuki Gs150
    2. Masood Ahmed Khan on his Black Bear Suzuki Gs150
    3. Naveed Siddiqui on his Neelie (Suzuki gs150.

    Idea triggered when we were having super tea at Capri Liberty at 11:30 pm. We were frustrated and very sad as our plan for Neelam Valley was dropped due to few reasons. Few mistakes were done at my end. Initially for Neelam Valley bike tour we were 4 riders and all have same bike. We have done 90% preparation, weather proofing... And the route was designed. Tools and extras were bought but things did not work out well. But suddenly a bhimber place triggered and i discussed it with other three. One ( Naveed Ahmed ) was missing that night.

    I called him but he was busy somewhere. So decided to make short trip to Bhimber wich is 199 km away from Lahore. Weather checked as we were more concerned about the weather and the rain as it was the end of autumn and winter was about to take off.

    Time decided and now My Retro, Black bear and Neelie was ready to hit the road on Sunday.

    Time was decided and rally point was set as Cavalry Ground 90 am as it was expected that we may have to encounter with rain in the evening. So wanted to be on return route as soon as possible.

    Till that point when we left each other at Liberty we never knew what wud b happening next day.

    I got up early and just messaged others that i wud b at Cavalry ground chowk at sharp 90am .

    Now this is the time where i thought to cancel the program and ask others to stay at home... I rang and found them sleeping and one was up and getting ready...

    I got some hope but now little worried as the weather indicates that we might hit by rain while going to bhimber...

    They ask me to wait at Cavalry Chowk at 10:30...

    I went there around 10 am and told them to reach there as soon as possible....

    When i sitting thr... I heard a roar of few having choppers... Yes four V rod passed by... And they made three rounds at Pso pump as the time passes it ws already 10:40 am

    Now i ws again worried but they reached me at 10:45...

    There we decided not to wait for another 10mins.. And get going toward destination...

    Only i had my break fast... Other two were still empty tank... So sprinted to gujranwala and there hint of clouds start peeping out...

    We reach Gujranwala... Took lunch plus break fast... And at Gujranwala... We reach thr at 12:15pm... And wen we done with brunch kind of thing and got ready at 12:45pm and then hit the road at 10pm... Now clouds as shown in previous post running around us as we were going toward Gujrat...

    Point to be mentioned here is... We dont know which route shud we take... It was on chance... And just had an idea that we can go straight from gujrat to bhimber...

    By the time we reach gujrat... We realize that we have been travelling little slow... And we had to go at other corner of gujrat or to go through the gujrat inner city...

    We discussed and then ride toward the gujrat airport side by pass road..

    There we iccidently took one bad turn and that pulled us away and it was longer route to reach Gujrat Bhimber bypass road... When we reach the bhimber road... We stopped by the police ... Yes it ws days on Moharam so they have every right to stop and check.. Asked us the purpose ... We explained them and told that we r going to bhimber for recreation purpose...

    They told that we might have picked wrong day... I didnt picked what police man told me...

    From that point... We stopped by police and rangers for seven times ... And that hurt our cause we were late right from start and every stoppage costing us time..

    But we kept going... And atlast we stopped by Army... First time we were guided and told not to waste time if we r going toward "Baba Shadi Shrine".. As we are running short of the time..

    Now we started our hike up with bike...

    Roads were winding.... First 3 km were newly built road and then.... Completely off road...

    We were cautioned in our effort..

    I took lead and told them to maintain constant distance and follow my trail and speed.... I asked them not to over ride the gears... Do it politely....

    As we were cruising... We stopped n took some pics... It ws not the top height but still the view was breath taking... We were not expecting this...

    Now we continued to ride up and finally in 1 hour we reached at the top...

    One hour total uprooted road... And again twice Army checkpost ....checking

    But we managed to reached at Shrine in one hour of ride...

    Here i like to mention that the riders should know how to ride n drive in mountains and winding roads...

    If not.. Do ask some experienced riders and drivers... And most probably they will tell u to ride in low gears... And with minimum clutch usage...least pressure on brake pedals.

    And same mistake ws done by my friend...

    While going down from steep road... He pulled the clutch and wen race increased... He pushed the brakes and slipped...

    Fortunately he slipped on mountain side... Rather toward steep down toward valley....

    I gathered my thoughts and brief him and leave the clutch while going down the hill and stay in first gear...

    I guided him and asked to follow me...

    At last we reach the shrine... We reached thr at 4 ... And had only one hour and fifteen minutes to come down...

    Took fifteen minutes to see the shrine... Took pics... And explore ...

    And then again gathered our thoughts as we have only 15 minutes to sunset... And i dont wana ride down the hill having one unexperienced rider riding down the hill in the dark

    I asked both riders to stay close and stay with me... Catch my pace so that we can makr it in a safe way...

    We started riding and it went dark little early as it ws cloudy and very gloomy...

    I ws expecting rain anytime... And it did happened...

    Almost half of the track down the hill ... It started ... Rain ws pouring down we kept going... As there was no shalter... It ws drizzle...

    Finally in 35 minutes we reached bhimber city... And rain stop... We kept going toward kotla arab and toward gujrat... As it ws getting late...

    And finally reached gujranwala...

    From there we took dinner and finally march toward Lahore ... And throughout from bhimber till gujrat ... We took multiple stops due to drizzle... But from Gujrat onward... It wsnt raining so we east up till Lahore ...
