A small introduction .!!!
.. some of my friends who are non kashmiris call me zaheer which is actulie most of them. Working as 2nd officer in merchant navy. I learned driving when i was 24, and now i have done ladakh, 4 to and fro trips from delhi to srinagar, . Shimla, agra on my classic 500 chrome. There is actulie a lot to talk about but lets start with ladakh as this was my first trip as in a long trip on a bike.
Btw this is my first blog m just giving it a try . Maybe helpfull to those who are planning for a trip. I may do mistakes in writting so pardon me for that in advance.
Preplanning:- so this one afternoon i decided that i will go home ie from delhi to srinagar on my bike and the first thing that came to my mind was better to find a group as it wont be safe to ride alone. Truth is i felt scared . We all do when we r about to do something we have never done before. So i just started to search for this group all over the internet and finally landed in one . I got the contact from royal enfield website. There is one website where you can just put up your plan of any ride and anybody interested can join in and comtact you on your email adress. Thst was short story how i met Amit , his wife (dnt knw her name hahah) abisjekh and his wife ,anish and yes raju bhai .. all of them are working in it departments in gurgaon we are were unknowns when we started.
Plan was to begin from india gate and i guess i reaced there first. Tell you the truth i didnt slpt tht night because of excitement. Anewaz all of us were there and the journey was flagged off. We were expecting to reach pathankot by the evening. After driving for 2.5 hours everyone was really feeling hungry u know travel hunger .. and when u r on tht highway u r bound to stop for some parathas at murthal. Honastly guys i was not aware about that place even after being in delhi for 11 years. Paratha ws fun with couple of cups of desi chai. It was an halt of hour. Anish was not feeling confortable thats wht i was able to judge from his face. Some how we kept on ridig and on the way we met some harleys near jalandhar if i remember correctly it was iron 883 one fatboy and 48 and believe me raju bhai and me we were trying to outrun them .. u know how bullet is.. even after giving it everything our bullets were not hitting more than 140 kmph .. next stop was haveli we reached there quiet late around 8 in the evening. First we decided to rest there only but thn it was better to stick to the plan. Even though pathnkot was just 100 kms from there.
In this whole stretch from delhi to srinagar you will find this stretch most haunting at night . There is not a single light believe me not a single one. But i guess thst is the beauty of it.
Somehow reached there found one hotel and i wsx down within 10 minutes after food.
