We took breakfast and loaded luggage on bikes. Topped up fuel at a PSO petrol pump and changed engine oil too.
On bad broken roads, Pridor showed its fuel efficiency. To give you some idea, from Besham to Gilgit, Usman's GS consumed 800 rupee fuel, mine used 700 rupee while pridor only needed 500 rupee fuel. But this was on bad roads where bike is mostly in small gears. When it came to open road cruising in top gear, my GS average became almost same as Pridor. (more on that later)
Anyway , we were ready to leave and our route was to go through Nomal to Naltar Valley and then to Naltar Lake.
