    Default Bike Trip (2,039 Km on Suzuki GS-150 with my wife), From Sept. 10, to Sept. 17, 2015

    IN THE NAME OF "ALLAH"
    Assalamu'alaikum Wa Rahmatullah to All,

    I have completed a bike trip with my wife from Lahore to Gilgit, Hunza (up to Attabad Lake) and Astore (Up to PTDC Rama). The tunnel (Attabad Lake) was not open during our visit, disappointed and decided not to go ahead, On return via Naran we changed our route and traveled via Balakot to Garhi Habibullah,Muzaffarabad, Murree and Lahore. Overall it was a wonderful trip for us. Thanks to Almighty we didn?t face any single problem / discrepancy regarding bike / trip. I especially want to thanks Mr. Rizwan Mir (rizwan_mir), Mr. Muhammad Izhar Ahmed (A biker and friend of Mr. Rizwan Mir) and Mr. Nadeem (basic) for giving me very useful guidelines regarding our trip. I also want to thanks Mr. Nasir Jamil and his fellows (A bikers group from Faisalabad we met in Gilgit city) as they also gave me some useful guidelines. Thanks a lot and God bless all of you and your families and grant all your prayers and wishes. I also met with Mr. Sagheer Sufian (Xoofi) & group (on the bikes) near Chilas as they were returning after completing the visit of Khunjrab Pass. He was astonished that how I know him? Sagheer Sufian Bhai you are admirable member of this esteemed organization (PakWheels). I have visited your all beautiful threads and my given remarks are witness. Thanks and God bless you. Another Bikers group met us at Rama (Astore) Mr. Moeen & group (Biker from Lahore) with some foreigner / female bikers. My last visit for these areas was in 2000 and long time has passed I couldn?t go there (Northern Areas). Although it was not a complete trip of the area but we enjoyed very much there.

    Preparation

    I have purchased GS-150 bike after detailed discussions with my friends and this is my personal opinion that GS-150 is trustworthy traveling companion. I have already some bike traveling experience in the past. I have done some changing / modification in my bike as I changed the rear tyre (Service cruiser 18-90-100). Changed the headlight bulb with LED and installed 02 extra U-3 Torch type lights with headlight for extra support of night traveling (as on low head light and on high U-3 lights).Installed car cigarette lighter device for charging of mobile during traveling (very helpful). Installed double foot rests both sides for my wife. Installed Denso horns. Installed Studds (an Indian Bike?s accessories manufacturing company) side box (on the right side use as tool kit box and for some light accessories. Prepared an extra seat cushion (with help of fiber ball filling material). I and my wife felt more comfortable by its use during the traveling. Changed the original power plug with NGK G-Power Platinum Plug.

    Tool Box


    02 extra tubes for tyres, complete puncture kit, 01 extra power plug, 01extra engine oil pack (Liqui Moly 20w-50) and some necessary tools / panas. Extra brake shoes. Extra Clutch, Brake and accelerator cables. Extra clutch / brake handles. Extra Chain lock.


    Itinerary


    Lahore (Via GT Road) ~ Abbotabad ~ Batakundi (Via Naran) ~ Babusar Top ~ Chilas ~ Gilgit ~ Hunza ~Attabad Lake ~ Mina Pin ~ Astore ~ Rama (up to PTDC Rama) ~ Chilas ~ Babusar Top ~ Naran ~ Balakot ~ Muzaffarabad ~ Murree ~ Lahore.

    Expenses


    Petrol consumption = 62.76 Liters = Rs. 4,690/-

    Engine Oil Liqui Moly 20w-50 (02 Packs) = Rs. 1,400

    Hotel (Total 07 Misc. Night stay) = Rs. 4,650

    Foods (Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner) = Rs. 3,770/-

    Tea & Misc. Refreshments = Rs. 1,751/-

    GRAND TOTAL
    Rs. 16,261/-

    Note:-
    In Abbotabad Petrol was stolen in the hotel car parking area the rest tour was excellent and safe.

    Wa’Alikum Asslam Wa’ Rehmatullah Dear Brother,

    Bundle of thanks for your kind words. Yes agree with u that without help of Almighty we can’t do anything. Brother believe me that traveling on the bike for a long trip is full of adventures although this is dangerous but with the help of good planning & commitments one can do easily.
    About Diran Guest House it’s nice, calm and very beautiful place as suitable to stay there with the family. Regarding location it is at the distance of 76 kilometers (approximately) from Gilgit going towards Hunza when u cross Jaglot ~ Sikandarabd~Jafarabad ~ Rahimabad then the next will come Nasirabad (bridge) and stop there. There is a small sign board along the road and an arrow pointing regarding Diran Guest House from there leave the KKH and turn towards right and that road leads to Diran Guest House this road is known as Diran road and from there it’s hardly 9~10 Km. You will reach there within 15~20 minutes. Road is single but in good condition. Mr. Israr Hussain is there
    very good and cooperative person. It was out of season when we visited there and charges were less than Rs.1,000/-per night.

    Kind regards,
    Ali Imran

    Dear Brother aliarshad26,

    I had purchased the side boxes from Vohra Autos McLeod road Lahore and the price was Rs. 2,600/- for each. As I have seen now days many bikers have installed different type of side boxes other than Studds brand and those are in different shapes with more storage capacity. We had used this side box for some light accessories / tool kit during our tour. Yes brother you can use this for storing of clothes but I think a good traveling bag is more suitable than a side box during traveling.

    During our traveling we had stopped for meals, refreshments, prayers and rest purpose according to situations. This is my personal opinion to stop away from population area I mean outside any city / town and chose any Dhaba or truck’s stop hotels / restaurants. Mostly they all are so good and will serve you with good manners.

    Best regards,
