    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.

    Bundle of thanks for your kind words. Many couples have done these type of trips on the bike but they were young and we r aged. Thanks to Almighty as without his help we can't do and also good planning, sincere comments, encouragement and good guidelines of friends are shares of this successful trip. Sure brother more snaps will come one by one. so please wait.

    Best regards,

    Brother from Chilas till up to raikot bridge road is not in very good condition and if you are on the bike you can't drive speedily. Mixture of good and bad patches but manageable.

    (Day4) September13, 2015 (Sunday) Gilgit City to Mina Pin Nagar

    After breakfast we made some snaps with Mr. Nasir Jamil & group. Started our journey towards Attabad Lake via Hunza and on the way stopped for tea and snaps at many places. The Attabad tunnel was still closed. I & my wife stayed there for some time and took some snaps there and started back traveling towards Mina Pin and reached there as the sun was setting. We stayed in Diran Guest house and met Mr. Israr after a long time as he is owner of this beautiful Guest house (Snaps will tell the story). He was very happy. We taken dinner together and after dinner he served us with traditional (Kehwah) green tea. We chatted till late night and reminded our old memories. Next morning after breakfast we said goodbye to Mr. Israr as he was insisting to stay more days here but we excused due to shortage of time. We started our traveling and our next destination was Astore…...
