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.
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.
