    Exclamation The wind, bike & heart; Tour de KPK

    Its all about the freedom of life on the road, a personal adventure that leads a biker to the KPK province of Pakistan. KPK is known as the land of hospitality.This adventure started with passion, hope, fear of unseen and ended giving experiences & memories of good times to be recalled. It also helped me discover myself and taught me lessons to be remembered.

    On inspection it revealed that spring of side stand has been dropped somewhere during that water crossing. It has loosen its tension and it was my mistake that I didn't replace it on time.

    It was a safety hazard if I ride the bike with side stand in hanging position. Went back to check if I can be lucky enough to spot the missing spring in water but wasn't able to spot it. so did this "jugar". But now I was unable to park bike with sidestand. I thought if some situtaion like that arises I would forcefully push my foot on stand to tore off the polythene to make it stand. By saying this, I recalled one of my relative's comments about motorcycle "yeh aisi wahiyat sawari hai jo apney paon per khari bhi nahi ho sakti"

    Went back to Drosh bazar and spotted a motorcycle mechanic shop. It was Al-Rasheed Engineering Works. He was a competent man also with the supply of spare parts of mainly Honda bikes. He told that 2 guys of his town have purchased brand new GS-150 somewhere from down country but availability of spares of this bike is a problem in their area. He fitted Honda CG-125's double stand spring on my bike with alteration which worked pretty fine. I also got Castrol GTX(20W-50) 1 litre pack in Rs.450 from him and got my bike's Engine Oil changed. Then I set off towards Chitral.
    Chitral bypass.
