    Default Sober Riders visit Khunjerab: The adventurous way (via Nori Pass)

    Hello Guys so a week back we returned from an amazing journey from noori pass and khunjerab, the tour was full of Adventure and some life threatening events.
    But with the blessings of Allah and dua of parents we returned home safe and sound with life time experience of riding offroad.

    Sober Riders visit Khunjerab The adventurous way via Nori Pass -1713134

    As usual we all sober riders applied for annual leaves planned accordingly so every one can join in, we also met @travel-pole and took feed back about nori pass which he explained on the scale of risk and high climb as 10/10.

    So we started to plan and prepare accordingly.

    This time the bikers league in sober riders increase more then a dozen and we were 16 Riders in total. Initially we thought we will create pairs or groups and further sub divide people so it can be managed easily and it really helped.

    We met Hunza people, we met wakhani people, we met chinese, spanish, swedish, dutch people.. we had a blast of happiness!!!

    The purpose of this thread is to narrate new riders how fun it can be to ride in north and how to be safe and well prepared for any mis-hap ... I would be sharing the story with picture and some deadly high climbs videos here and I hope you guys would like it.

    We reached Nanga parbat View point in groups and had tea/lunch/dinner I and taha team were ahead and we learnt what happened with kashifs bike...

    Soon it started to rain and we rescued our stuff from bikes..

    It sorted out that we will camp here today and leave for naran/balakot/islamabad tomorrow (yani jitna travel kiya ja sakay ker liya jaye..)

    we youngsters stayed up late night and talked the hell out of each other..

    While we were bringing our rides in we met a lady who was cycling from japan and was on visit to Pakistan...

    she was "too" curious to see boys with bikes loaded like trucks and was roaming around with two police escorts..

    when she failed to intiate a talk she sat beside our group and passed a comment to me when I was asking omar to bring his bike inside the fenced area.. "she said loudly where all these boys come from they are loaded like travelling the whole world together.." while police wala was still consuming what she said and preparing an answer for that I replied to her.. lol

    I told her that we knew her already and we even new when she was crossing naran 8 days ago.. she was all caught in a surprise when i showed her @jigzKorner picture which he took a week back with her near naraan...

    Sober Riders visit Khunjerab The adventurous way via Nori Pass -1719472

    she was like on her toes to learn that a dozen of lads which she was noticing for an hour already were well aware of her presence..

    and she started to talk like a a flash flood of all her experience... I had to abrupt stop her that we need to camp and she said ok lets catch up in morning as she was camping right there as well..

    Default Day#9 The Sprint To Naraan? Balakot ? Lahore ? Holly Molly!!

    The 9th day was a beautiful and was refreshing and as soon as we poked our noses out of camps we were fresh like never before...

    We packed up the camps and buckled up our rides .. in the mean time Rocio showed up as well we did a breakfast and lots and lots of discussion related to adventures she had, as she was out there for 3 years now and was living totally hand to mouth and relying totally on her savings she did not had any sponsor, had an old aging bicycle but she had a brilliant plan for her lief ahead and she wsa nailing it correctly.

    I did noticed that the hotel manager charged her 10$ (Aik hazar rupiya 4 roityoon ka) for few rotis and she was so angry with him I felt bad for that, Omar asked what she liked about Pakistan and what she did not...

    Her Answer was a sad reality and cheap Pakistani behavior against women, she said The country is beautiful like she never saw before and that is the best part, she cycled from Wagah to all the way up there..

    BUT she did not liked that people start following her say abusive words to her she said she can not understand but she get the idea what the gossip is all going about, she was properly covered and was completely in a legal form but she always had that issue until she entered Baltistan.

    It was a shame to know about that, but she said she faced the same problem in India as well.. so both countries were on same page, but she was also not happy with Indian roads as well she said she faced the worst roads there...

    soon we hit the road and stormed towards chillas... while she went to Astore..

    Default The Dead Trail Bike and a Road Run to mansehra..

    As soon as rain started all the riders wore rain covers... I got a little soaked while getting it on... but I was still fine... but then tragedy struck..
    @pirates bike started to stall and started to do missing... it was heavily raining.. imran doubted that the carburator might have sucked water.. or may be it is just running rich and pumping more petrol then the available oxygen..

    he leaned it to the leanest position but the problem did not rectified..

    Only @pirates and i were the last I was staying with the comrade because I knew it was getting colder and colder and his bike if goes dead will need to be towed .. all other riders were already above babusar or were travelling towards naraan.

    it took us 3+ hours to reach Babusar top.. as the trail was doing heavy missing and stalling again and again... we had to tow it at places and band like dozen kicks to keep it running..
    @pirates got totally fed up as we were unable to trace the problem.. CDI was fine fueling wsa lean engine was a power ful one and tottally healthy .. what was causing the missing was totally untraceable..

    Kher Allah Allah ker k top per pohanchay wahan shadeed sardee thee.. I indicated pirates to roll down to lulsar becuase we cannot fix this problem untill we find some mechnic..

    I rushed toward lulsar as mujhe bhi ab sardee lagni shru ho gaye thee..

    on reaching lulsar I sat by fire at a corn seller to dry my self up and wiat for pirates.. he arrived an hour later... now we were the last and we both had no signals to understand where ore clan is right now..

    this towing of dieng trail continued and we snailed towards naraan...

    Allah Allah ker k ish'aa ka waqt hum naraan pohanchay...

    We found a mechnic there who diagnosed the bike and we wanted to shhooot over self finding out that the problem was so silly...

    It was a lose jet in carburator which was floating in the float tub... I called up guys and learnt that a bunch or riders are reaching bala kot another pack is crossing mansehra... soon we left naraan and reached manshra.. in between we planned to gather all riders to abotabad...

    but when we reached mansehra we came to know that a couple of riders are already in Islamabad and others stopped behind us in balakot..

    and we were in the middle having tea late night and eating boiled eggs

    imran thats why I asked you for the last camp you had.. these chinese camps are really good in results...

    I am using a M10 SJCAM its an old one... nowadays M20 is out as well .. this M series is different then their flagship SJCAM4000/5000 series, it is miniaturized and cheap in price too..

    Landa= 100% Recommended no parallel, these so called local/sialkoti/Import quality are piece of crap if compared to what we see in landa..

    Default Day#9 the Longest Sprint of my travelling adventure

    The 9th Day was the longest for me, @pirates, @taha66 to say the least, when we reached mansehra we learnt that Half of the team has already slept in balakot which was fine it was a long distance they cover already (we were comming from Jaglot in heavy rain and extreme cold)

    a "racing couple" @faizandawood and moosasyed1 were already reaching Islamabad (Allah khair) and where as @kashi.khan and @Nadeem sahab were on the way to lahore on Bus as there both bikes died on return trip !!

    now only taha, me, pirates, Omr and @ammarzahid were still awake in the middle of the night sipping tea in manshra bypass..

    I was totally charged to hit lahore with in the night, so were pirates and taha but Omar was already showing signs of exhusted body and ammar too.. so they both decided to rest for the night and travel in the morning and not take any risk..

    So they stopped at Abbotabad while we stormed towards Islamabad it was Fajar when we were near pindi we crossed pindi in dawn and reached Lahore before 11AM

    It was 700km in a single sprint.

    Here it the picture of bike after a almost 3k tour..
