I have never used the word "Adventure" in any of my trips despite of being into touring from last 4 years and have covered almost every location of Pakistan on my bike with an exception of North. But this trip was truly a masterpiece when it comes to adventure.
Faced flat tyre, shivering cold breeze, heavy rain, hailstorm, running bike over camelion, racing with horses, broken rear shoe in drum, slipped chain, sleeping in truck wala hotel with insanely poor hygenie, insanely long heard of sheep's occupying road, eating canned food, having chai infront of indian occupied kashmir, witnessed a fellow jeep accident, group politics and what not you name it and we faced it.
But indeed Kashmir's beauty is so enchanting it overcome all the hurdles.It was a complete adventure to visit the undisturbed beauty of beautiful Pakistan.
We were three bikers from different regions and localities but pooled in our ideas and effort through pakwheels platform.
1. Imran Afzal from Lahore (Atlas Honda Pridor 100)
2. Muhammad Imran from Sialkot (Ravi Piaggio 125)
3. Sikander Akram from Islamabad (Ravi Piaggio 125)
It was decided that we will leave at 3rd morning of eid and return by next Monday in anycase. As Imran Afzal bhai has some important project ongoing for which he had to report in any case. We planned to do camping so we distributed stuff and duties in-time to avoid any confusion.
1. Imran Afzal is responsible for bringing cooking posts, utensils, pans and stove
2. Muhammad Imran is responsible for bringing all the stuff like canned food, cleaning stuff, puncture kit and tool kit
3. I was responsible for arranging camps and camping related stuff
