    Default The Great Escape - Ladakh: A Journey beyond Reasons!

    The Great Escape - Ladakh: A Journey beyond Reasons!

    12 June - 26 June, 2010









    The Rides & Riders:

    Ananth - Hero Honda Karizma ZMR



    Steve - Hero Honda Karizma R





    I want to thank the following people, before i brag about the ride to Ladakh - for without them the trip wouldn't have been so successful.

    Special Thanks to...

    Hero Honda - For making a Bullet Proof Engine, featuring amazing Fuel Efficiency & an amazing Tourer!

    Born2Lead - Mr.Imran - The Man behind it all. From logistics to accommodation to food to YOU NAME IT - He helped us all.
    I can proudly say, Our trip was a grand success just because of this kind hearted person. Thanks so much Imran, We owe you a lot.

    Sir Old Fox - Mr.Sandeep - Thanks so much for the tips, tricks, advices and the gyaan - It was indeed helpful. It was motivational and helped us complete the trip SAFE.

    Mr.Aparajith - Thanks for that wonderful GPS. It helped us locating where we were LOST. Thanks again

    Kirosh - Mr.Kiran Roshan - Thanks for all the spares. Thankfully we never had to use most of them. Anyway, It saved the day for us

    And Steve - Mr.Srinivasan - The fellow rider, for putting in his efforts whenever i dropped my bike, to pick it up and land it back on two wheels

    I also wanted to thank this family we met in Shyok. They offered us Butter Tea, Maggi, Biscuits, Sweets, and what not! We rested there for about 2 hours, ate for atleast 300 Rs. and they didnt even accept a penny from us, Not to mention they were a not so well off family - living with the gains from a small shop in Shyok. Hats off to their love, affection and care for a by-passer like us. May god give them a wonderful future.



    More to follow, watch this space

    Ananth: Finally, we have your thread up and running. Great! It was good to meet you and Steve here in Delhi, during a hot and humid evening at the dhaba.

    I'll be glued to this thread now, for days to come. As for B2L, he is as kind hearted as the word "KIND" itself is.

    Good going guys!
