I am planning for a 15 day trip to leh, pangong lake, from manali. IN the month of june. I need travel companions.
Going alone is good, can find friends on the route. But a planned trip mightsave some time.
I welcome any one who want to join us. I am planing to rent a KTM or get my own enfield. Either way I am good with bikes and can repair them.
We are a small group of 3 now. 2 of them female of which one can ride a bike. Hoping to see more people join us. I wish to make a pack of 6-8 riders.

HI Dhiraj.!
I did that twice.
Rented a bike is usually not good. Till yours isnt perfect.!
moreover, a pillion rider would be way more comfortable on an enfield than any other bike.!
Either my delhi group or bangalore group(4 people), you can join us.!
In whatever case, just 1 suggestion, who so ever is riding, make sure you have an experience of 500-600 kms of trips.! if not, experience doing that before Leh.!
:)

You can write to me for more.
Sachin.

Hi Dhiraj,
Have you finalized your dates? If you have slots, we (me and my friend) can join you. I am planning to take my bullet 350 with me.
Please reply.

Hi Sneha..
I am also looking for a travel partner.
I shall be on my bike.. Would you be interested in tagging along??
I might or might not have other bikers with me.

Sachin.

What I can tell you with my practical experience is that Even Suzuki Shaolin and HH Splendor can go to that high altitude but then you may face some problem.

You need to ensure that you distribute the weight through saddle bags on both side of the bike. Though I don't doubt on the capability of a women rider but however you need to have more precaution. There are list of things which you would like to take it along with you as precautionary items.

Plan out the avg daily travel length and pit stops and finalize ur stay in prior. Chances are you may not get hotels during this time being vacation.. and you need to look out for alternative.. also do check out PWD guest house if you can book it in advance...
