Hello Bikers and Lazy forum readers its vicky2law and friends again...
While returning from our last tour to babusar we drafted a rough plan for a Winter 'ON ROAD' tour as we had enough of the 'Off Road' and mud baths from naran and jhalkad. and our bikes took so much damage that my rides rear brake is still not working and I relied on front Disc totally even on this 'Thanda Tour'
> The most important Ingredient for this tour was to keep it under 500km and no more then that and should be a Highway more and less off road riding.
> Second important thing which we were keeping in mind was to keep it one day tour or at max spend only two days no more then that.
> As this time we have bigger CC bikes with us so these things were important for us to consider.
> Brain Storming Started a month before the actual Tour and these Plans were penned out by main participants:
Plan A: Go to @pirates farm house in dinga (near Gujrat) do fishing, Hunting spend a day and return home.
Plan B: Goto Killa Katas, Kahar, Khewra Spend a weekend at my rest house in choa Syeden Shah and return home.
Plan C: Goto to Rohtas have a BBQ party with friends and riders and return.
Plan D: Goto Tilla Jogian visit the Old temple on top and return.
@angel82 advised rohtas as it would make it a completely highway ride and every body will enjoy, @imranbhatti advised to spice and rice it up more by adding tillJogian in the list as well as both locations were on same road.
but on investigating we found out that Tilla is a no go for super bikes and cruiser and we had around 5~6 big rides in Gang, but on researching little more we found out that local village around it is approachable and we can park our rides there and trek up the mountain.
13th - December was ruled to be the final date of the Tour.
And Finally we hit the Road and to our Surprise ..this time Senior members from Pakistan Bikers Club joined us in the last minute and we were more then Happy to well come them.

Our meeting Point was outside Lahore on GTRoad on Shahdara Junction at 6:15AM which is almost dark these days :).
Around 5:45 am i got a call from Haroon as he was buckling up
At around 6Am I learnt 7thgear is ariving at assembly point as well (WOW finally he is on road... @monoo sharm kero ab aap... Joking )
When i reached the assembly point I learnt I was the second last as all were there in dark.. AMAZING!! ini Thand me bhi Shok ki Intiha
Initially I advised to Group the riders into two groups, one Bigger CC bikes and the other Group for smaller cc bikes.
but as soon as we hit the road (bhains ki ankh :o ) even our Captain slow was like a runaway rider.
While I reached Gujranwala By pass with @pirates and others and stopped for Break Fast we realized 7thgear and @rocketscience have rocketed to wazirabad by that time ... What the.... so we advised them to do a break fast there while we do it here and the wait for us until we arrive so they stopped while we reached and assembled again.
then from wazirabad to Rohatas Junction we had an amazing High Speed Cruise as roads were empty and we had a choice to spread our bikes engine wings to full and let them fly....
Cruiser and Zukis were cruising together while me and @pirates on heavy engine RPs were dragging together and GD/Stock RP and trail were enjoying together .... but all three packs of bikers were hardly a minute or two away from each other.
When we reached Roahtas Turn we had a nice tea break and then we hit the Road to Rohatas and continued toward Tilla Jogian while passing from inside the Qilla.
I must mention that locals were so happy to see big fancy bikes in there town that we can see them talking with each other about them and smiling and waving at us.
Most of them were thinking of us to be foreigners. LOL
Not to mention a Guy ona CG125 tagged with us near Jhelum Over head bridge and started one wheeling in front of our group and braked his tail light then lowering his bike he started to look at us with eyes expecting an "appreciation" for the stunt.... he was thinking that we were foreigners and would applause what he was doing... Crazy!!!
While I and @angel82 were talking with each other on slow speed just getting out of a fuel Pump I suppose another CG125 slashed passed the cruiser thinking that what can this China Cruiser do with it it has no power no speed, but then that China Cruiser Gang B**ged it and over took it when CG was all revved to its red limits then another 200cc paiggio zoomed pass him and he vanished from the back mirror next second to save face from humiliation.
When we crossed Rohtas and started to move towards BHET (a village in the base of Tilla Jogian Mountain) thing started getting interesting.. Very Interesting Specially with the heavy motor Bikes.
Now let the Pictures start talking
6AM in the morning at Shadara Junction.
