Trip To Murree Hills
First of all, Thanks to everyone who wished me a safe trip and journey. May Allah Bless you all. Hawkzel just got back safely AlhamdoLillah.
Due to domestic and professional commitments, the trip was kept short and sweet. Hence 1100 km's in 2 days
M2 journey was nothing new as i had already traveled to isloo a couple of times recently with her. So, the fun started as soon as we hit the Masyari Expressway to Murree. The curves and terrain of that road is so ideal to push the best of machines' abilities in handling to test, so needless to say i was anticipating that terrain since i left Lahore. It's like after having driven her for almost 2 months now, i knew her abilities and the fun was almost anticipated. And as always, MashAllah she didn't let me down in any way. On that Murree Expressway, it was like some magnetic forces invisibly playing with Hawkzel on those curves. Traction control off and the slight and subtle drifts were nothing but adrenaline shots i must mention here at no time i pushed dangerous speed limits (or at least limits at which i felt under confident). The continuous incline was also suppose to be test for 1.5L earth dreams, but at no time she had to engage 1st or 2nd gear. All in all, that expressway was experienced by me like never before yesterday evening.
