                    My views on the YZF-R15 V2.0:

                    The pleasure is when your rear wheel slides, and you bring it back; and when the front wheel lifts, you take your time bringing it back.

                          2nd june 2009: start at 6 am from manali less traffic reached rohtang at 9 am eat noodle at marhi.crossed rohtang easily .reached keylong at 1 pm .took room and sleep but i think person starting from manali can go upto sarchu . there is nothing to do in i got bored there .

                          at rohtang

                          after rohtang


                          3rd june 2009: big day for me woke up at 4 am take bath and start for my most difficult ride full of excitement .these pics u r seeing are from darcha bridge was broken .in crossing bridge my shoes and socks are all wet .from here on to leh i have to cover whole route in wet shoes with poly bag in my both foot.

                          have to cross this near darcha bridge was broken

                          and the result

                          starting fom keylong reached near baralacha this is deepak taal named on me heheheheheh.

                          reached baralacha snow snow and snow nothing else u will find here this is the most difficult pass of my life i can never forget it.look at urself.

                          and more

                          reached sarchu at 11 am looked for tent accomodation they are offering me 500 rs with lunch and dinner but its only 11 am sit for full day idle like keylong last day naaaaaah atleast not for me i cant sit idle for so long so i left for leh .wise decision i think.

                          3rd june 2009: after sarchu comes gata loopes there are many shortcuts here but dont try to do it if u are in 150 or 180 cc bike with luggage no no i havent done it after gata loopes comes nakeela la and than lachunlga sorry for any spelling mistakes

                          after crossing those comes pang i want to to warn bikers watch out baralacha and the place just before pang one nallah is there named kanglajal even i see one sumo stuck in that nallah and soon after that nallah main skid point for all bikers mind it for all bikers me also hehehehe check out the pics of that skid point.

                          this guy is also victim

                          in pang i met one guy sumit beniwal he recognized me talk to me like this hey i know u ,u are a senior member of folowing forum deepak tomar na ,i say yes and from this point i join him till rumtse .he is with 3 other fellow bikers nice guy all they are.
