    What all do i need... What are the essentials...???

    I faced some problems while riding up at baralacha pass but after that i removed the cover of the air filter and then it gave no problems ... for fuel I never had any problems.

    Just make sure you keep extra clutch cable, a cane for extra fuel, disc pads, puncture kit and most important Diamox tablets

    I even met many riders on 100cc to 150cc bikes and on scooties even on scooters but they were solo ...

    Beautiful indeed. I think the drive that a human being has, is something to cherish. It's no easy feat two up with such a broken tarmac. Keep exploring.

    Cheers!

    Once upon a time, a guy asked a girl 'Will you marry me?'
    The girl said, 'NO!'


    And the guy lived happily ever after and rode motorcycles and watched sport on a big screen TV, went fishing and surfing, and played golf a lot, and drank beer and scotch and had tons of money in the bank and left the toilet seat up and farted whenever he wanted.


    THE END

We did our first stretch of 136Kms and stopped at a restaurant in Mehmadpur (Punjab) for breakfast @ around 7:30AM, after getting fresh and having breakfast we continued our journey. We did a stretch of 235 Kms from Mehmadpur to Talsri and stopped there to give some rest to our bikes.
    By around 6 PM we reached Manali. We were so tired that we dint even had dinner and went to sleep.


    .......................

    I said Ok and disconnected the call and abused my self for ignoring his call again and again and thanked god for getting the Bag back.

    Next morning I met him at his place and he returned my bag with each and everything being intact as it was.

    Marvelous TL and Hats off. WTG!
