OMG! Here I was with the beast, a shiny Royal Enfield Bullet Classic 500,  my royal ride for next 15 days. I started from Pathankot at 8:00 AM on the 5 th day and thought of riding non-stop to Manali. I had some hyper excitement of meeting my friends, but as I entered Himachal Pradesh, the land of Gods, I couldn’t take my eyes off the beauty of the surroundings.  I was awe-struck with all the amazing glimpses of nature I was seeing while riding along the bank of Beas river.

No GPS to guide me, no email to poke me. Just me and road to endless #possibilities

My bad luck that I was running out of time, But if you have time in your hand I would strongly recommend you to stay in Dharamshala for a day. I was here last year and it has its own charm.

Everyday above ground is a great day #exploring #love #life

The above shot was taken from The Kangra Fort around a year back, which is located 20 kilometers from the town of Dharamsala on the outskirts of the town of Kangra.

TIP : You should have following things handy with your bike when you ride:

  1. Removable Luggage Bike Carriers for the bullet .
  2. Fist Aid kit (with a strip of aspirin, D-cold or NoCold, Paracetamol and bunch of band aid).
  3. You or in your group someone should carry spare part of bikes, like puncture repair kit , spark plug, some extra fuse and if possible one fuel injector motor.

I am an open book. Some read the first page and fall asleep while the rest keep asking me for subsequent volumes.
