    Default Some brave riders

    Dear fellow Pakwheelers,

    I was in Naran with my family a couple of weeks ago.

    While we enjoyed a comfortable trip in a temperature controlled vehicle, it was very inspirational to see some young folks who were braving the trying weather conditions on their two wheelers.

    This post is just to appreciate these brave persons. Also, if you are aware of who these people are, please share their story. It might give encouragement and inspiration to others as well.

    I have used a couple of these photographs to taunt some of my friends, who have never left their 'comfort zone', for one excuse or the other

    Pix to follow ...

    Cheers.

    Just an ordinary guy ... @Mak_pk

    It was a team of two bikers ... I shook hands with them, gave them 'thumbs up', and wished them a safe journey ahead.

    These ladies presence invoked a lot of interest for other ladies around, who were interviewing them on their daring adventure ... One girl was on Suzuki GS-150 whereas the other was on Honda 125-Deluxe.

    Well, there were guys who thought these were 'Aliens'. My daughter was quite keen to know more about them. They took off before she could speak with them.

    @makpak the guy on this ride was @pirates and the guy on white derbi was Omar akram my team biking mate and those were not two biker only but 16 in total.

    And we were taking a rendezvous via babusar while returning from khunjerab.

    This specific trail was hit by bad luck and me and @pirates towed it up to babusar from chillas is storming rain and almost 0'C that day it had its first snow fall as well..

    the female riders you met was shoaib-ur-rehamn, taiba (both are famous in riding/touring community) they were on khunjerab trip as well.. they returned like a couple of days back.

    One of the girl rider is Tayyaba Tariq and she was with Shoaib ur Rehman. They are brave riders.

    We also stayed and dried ourselves in Moon Restaurant after descending from Babusar top. While they were leaving for Gilgit and Khunjrab. You can see our bike in Background

    That was a great adventure we had at Babusar. Crossing it in such harsh condition was a challenge for us but Alhamduilillah we did it.

    Thank @makpak for appreciation. Yes its very hard to come out of your comfort zone but once you succeed, The real fun starts from there.

    Where as ETX onwer is flattered by his bike even though it was not "that" quick under the foot as the altered derbi one but it was over all a perfect package .. here are some of his thoughts he shared on his social media as he is not on PW and do not see himself coming here in near future..
