    Prologue :

    Myself vikram mann an entrepreneur by luck and biker by choice..!!
    i learn riding sportsbike with our group JSB (Jaipur Superbiker) during the time i gain confidence to handle this heavy machine...
    throughout sportsbike is always mine first love and love the feel of riding ...


    This trip celebrates the freedom of discovering the country on a motorcycle.
    It is aimed to encourage safe riding and photography as the two most important aspects of this roadtrip...
    Why KharDung La :
    Everyone I know has a dream... Big or small !!! doesn't matter.. from last 2 years since brought GTR650 i had a dream to ride it till Khardung LA..
    was way tuff and sportsbike are not meant to be ridden on this terrain.. since i wanna change this myth..

    Khardung La has been considered as the ultimate destination for bikers and adventure seekers around the world.
    Riding to the height of over 18,380 feet, which is cited as the world's highest motorable road in the world, is what makes me going there ...

    Why GTR650..!!
    The Sportbike was originally intended for racing, hence the lean forward design. If your back isn't strong, don't expect to feel great ..
    i am used to the position of GTR and can easily ride 400-500 kms in a day through love the speed & acceleration makes my mindset...
    since its more love & confidence on the ride which i rode from a long time.. thats why against the odds i choose GTR650 for the trip !!
    Route #

    Jaipur - Jammu - Srinagar - Sonmarg - Kargil - Mulbekh - Leh - South Pulu - Kardung La
    During the trip I ride 2016 Hyosung GTR650 & Cover 3250 kms in 11 Days..
    | 3250km | 5 states | 40° To -10°Celsius | 1400 feets To 18380 feets |

            Looks like an awesome trip, Vikram Bhaji.

            Memories that will live for a long long time...

            Did you take any high resolution pictures as well or are they all mobile phone pictures?
            Once I have donned my black helmet, I become anonymous. My face ceases to identify me. My black visor shields others from the rigours of my passing glance while shielding me from their attempts to peer into my soul. I am an anonymous rider shrouded in black. I am no longer a specific self. I am a passing Traveller.
