    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.

    (Day2) September11, 2015 (Friday) Abbotabad to Bata kundi

    Checked out hotel and Started Traveling towards Balakot and stopped at Mian Gee Punjab hotel (Islam Kot Mansehra Road) for breakfast. We stopped many places for snaps and tea etc but didn’t stop at Naran and crossed Naran because our target was to reach Bata Kundi before sunset and finally we reached there (by the grace of Almighty). Checked in Shan Guest house (very nice place) the cool weather, good neat & clean room and nice location. The Guest House’s managements were very kind and helpful. They have charged Rs. 600/- as room rent from us (including breakfast) We discussed regarding our trip and they suggested that we have some extra luggage with us if possible to drop here under our safe custody otherwise it will be inconvenient during rest of the trip. After detail discussion we dropped our bag along with some clothes there and repacked the luggage. No mobile network coverage is available there so, we have taken dinner and have some walked and slept because we had started a tough journey in the next morning like Babusar Top and so on…..

    Thats excellent Sir. Congrats on your successful trip. Thanks for recognizing me while crossing paths near Chilas. I felt honored.

    Bundle of Thanks Sufian Bhai, Yes thanks God it was successful trip without any discrepancy. It was a short but nice meeting with u during the trip after crossing of Chilas. I had recognized u as u have removed the helmet (due to your all nice threads) i.e. Chilam Joshi festival, Punjab and interior Sindh traveling and beautiful coverage etc, secondly your nice and typical Urdu accent (All the time remained attractive for me) as I have spent more than 05 years in the Karachi with my family. you had said “Asslamualaikum” with wearing helmet and after helmet removal my memory recalled me that he is Sufian bhai. Then I said to u "Sufian bhai kya haal ha". Alas! Couldn’t capture any single click with u. Later on my wife said to me "Aap ko snap bnani chahiay thi un logon k saath" but that time u people had gone far away from us. Again thanks a lot and God bless u & ur family.

    With kind regards,
    Ali Imran

Then I said to u "Sufian bhai kya haal ha". Alas! Couldn?t capture any single click with u. Later on my wife said to me "Aap ko snap bnani chahiay thi un logon k saath" but that time u people had gone far away from us. Again thanks a lot and God bless u & ur family.

    With kind regards,
