    Correcting the mistakes early on before mainstream helps not only the thread starter but also to fellow Bhpians. Thread moved/merged.

    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.

    It would not be wise to go for your first long ride to Leh. Do some longish rides before and see if your body is capable enough for log rides. Riding to Leh isn't child's play and can be fatal if not careful.

    As for renting riding hear, again its not a good choice. Buy the gear and get comfortable with it on your test rides.
    If you wear the gear for the first time, it definitely feels awkward at first.

    In terms of mobile service, what carriers provides good coverage.
    I was advised to take BSNL post paid connection before going to Leh as other carriers do not work or are very flaky?
    Is that correct?

    Basic wrench tool kit, plus some spanner & spark plug. Also carry spare brake, Throttle & Clutch cables... Most importantly, service your vehicle & change Clutch plate, Oil sealant, brake pad & Chain Sprocket if needed. Dont service your vehicle unnecessarily during LEH ride. If you are confident about your vehicle than go ahead nothing gonna stop you. And most importantly don't play with ABS setting few days before or during ride.

    PS. I just went with WD40 & Duct tape :P
