    Default Ride to the Mystic Land ~ Spiti Valley !!!

    Last year when we were heading to LEH, we crossed Gramphoo where there is a small board stating turn right for Chandertaal, Spiti. As soon as Ankur and I saw the board we looked at each other and instantly we got to the understanding that we have found our next destination.

    Ride Preview...
    B2L to Ankur’s Mom, pointing towards Ankur’s all new P220 DTSi, isn’t that a lovely bike…? Looking at the sweet smile on Aunty’s face and that slight nod I couldn’t help myself and said, now that we got the bike, we will have to go for a ride… all of a sudden Anuty’s eyes raised and she asked… Where to…? Remembering the LEH episode of the previous year, I had to yet again conspire and say… just a little above Shimla…
    For good 2 months from that Day, Ankur and I used to very subtly say The Ride ~ just above Shimla, when ever there was a discussion about our upcoming ride.
    Total days taken: 6 (27Sep - 02Oct ‘09)


    Total kms: 1750 approx

    Route: Delhi – Karnal – Ambala – Kalka – Shimla – Matiana – Narkanda – Kufri – Fagu – Theog – Rampur – Jeori – Bhabanagar – Wangtu – Tapri – Karcham – Puari – Recong Peo – Pooh – Khaab – Yamthang – Nako – Chango – Sumdo – Hurling – Lari – Tabo – Kaza – Comik – Kaza – Kye – Losar – Kunzum Paas – Batal – Chota Dhara – Chatru – Gramphoo – Rohtang Paas – Manali – Kullu – Mandi – Bilaspur – Kiratpur – Ropar – Chandigarh – Ambala – Karnal - Delhi

    Riders: 5
    Ankur



    Anshul


    Arjun Thakur



    Kartik


    Kartik is my school friend. He is one of few people who follow my rides on picasa religiously. Back in summers he accompanied me to a weekend rafting trip to Rishikesh… ofcourse on bike but as a pillion, supposedly this was his first ride. It was tiring but motivating enough for him to start looking at his 4yr old Pulsar 150 in a different way... like a touring machine. So when I mentioned Spiti he readily agreed. We got his bike serviced, control cables checked, tyres replaced with tubeless ones, riding jacket, knee gurads arranged. Though I wanted him to go for couple of rides before Spiti for obvious reasons, and though he tried a number of times, somehow he wasn’t able to go for his maiden ride until Spiti.

    & yours truly B2L

    I'd rather be riding my motorcycle thinking about God than sitting in church thinking about my motorcycle.

    Great! I was waiting desperately for this thread.
    All men dream, but not equally. Those that dream at night in the dusty recesses of their minds, wake in the day to find that it was vanity; but the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act upon their dreams with open eyes, to make it possible. - T. E. Lawrence
