    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.

    As soon as we crossed Kohala bridge and the Papu road begins some of us forgot that we are sober riders so including myself, sannan and kashif, started a session of local motogp and that race ended with puncture bike of sannan and few other also joined us while we were fixing the problem, it was our good luck that the bike got flat a few meters from tyre shop so it was a very very hot but easy fix.

    After filling up our tummies with delicious food, we filled the tummies of our bikes and started heading towards our destination for the night

    After neelam jehlam project @moosasyed101, @ammarzahid, @kashi.khan, @jigzKorner, his cousin and @mfaizandawood (me) we increased our pace as we were targeting Sharda as our destination for that night but once the fun road disappeared and the rough road took the fun away we decided to stay in Keran, once we reached Keran the hunt for hotel started right away and sannan found a perfect place for the night.
    We woke up early assuming the people behind us will leave early to join us in sharda

    Default Day#2 Sharda and buckling up for Nori Top

    On reaching sharda we met our other 9 riders and teamed up again and decided the Game plan as we knew from @travel-pole and also had inputs from Locals about it.

    I was noticing that my front mudguard was very near to nobby tire I was using in this tour have a solid off-road grip and any stone which get stucked in the nooby grooves will break the Front Fender so I removed it.

    We got Biryani packed with us to have a nice dinner on Noori Top, also packed up Shami kabab and rotiyaan to be used as breakfast.

    We knew that there are bunch of 125cc among us and couple of 150cc bikes which were bit of a concern for me because the riders were first timers too.

    And they have never been to mountain and noori top was no joke..
    @angel82 advised that we should unload the bikes as they were loaded too heavily professional rider might not have any issues with the luggage but first the laden weight can be fatal for first timers and smaller cc bikes..

    we also knew that when travel-pole and his team climbed it the got there 150's clutch plates fried and had to ship it back.

    so over lads switched to over drive sprockets to make the bikes more torquee and it did help..

    Secondly we removed all the weight from bikes so they become light weight and climb easily..

    We hired a back up jeep in case any biker falls or if any mishap happens and we need emergency commute, or if any bike collapses we can tow it with that jeep as well to nearest city... we shifted all lugauge inside the jeep as well and then Finally...

    The Dance Started!!!

    Just before the Hike which start towards last resort the "Sargan vilage"

    Our back Up Jeep

    Default Day 2 # Climbing nori top - Broker Liver and snaped cable

    As soon as we started to climb towards sargan @ammarzahid sliped b/w jeep track grooves and broke the clutch liver I advised other riders not to stop and continue the journey while imran, angel82, akber, kashif stoped to get his liver replaced.

    a kilometer ahead I notice @pirates parked and opening up the tool box and we found out his race cable snapped and he is replacing that.. I was like really ?? not now.. we were already were way passed the after nooon and had a narrow window of day light ...

    few more riders stopped by him to get his ride fixed...

    I advised and pushed riders to keep on moving while the seniors are with the people who got there bike broke...

    Soon we reached Sargan..

    @ammarzahid all mangled up in dust after getting slipped

    @vickytulla @Akber3 You can see the how steep the height is... It will become steeper and tougher with time.

    While our brothers were saving lives and enjoying the cold water, the group in front was already in Sharda and we knew that they will take a few hours to reach to us so we decided to have some fun as well
    Unlike the other group the most dangerous thing happened to us was that the scarf of Kashif fell into the stream and i rushed for it but than i realized AB KYA SCARF K LIYE JAAN DU but a local boy managed to save it
