Life is the name of searching yourself and the human heart beats to the rhythm of this search.
In searching some unknown and wild routes, we discover ourselves.
where one inch feels like a mile .
Push the bike People ask us why take such a risk, “I say lets go back.
” Shounter track in night, we are riding, it is extraordinary.
“So what do you want to say about this?” “It is indeed difficult.
” “Too difficult” “Are you being scared??” “Yes” Scared!!!!! Here the fear of falling exists but the hope to recover is also present.
And this is our reply.
We left for Kashmir late night from Lahore We reached Muzaffarabad at 8:30 in the morning Our target was to reach Sharda or Kel but due to some reasons we had to stay at Athmuqam.
Since the trip has started , I have awaited for offroad anxiously.
I also told my father that I want to ride to offroad because straight roads are a piece of cake for everyone.
Then after facing many hurdles, we reached Kel.
“HURDLES!” “Puncture?” (Laughter) After facing hurdles!!!! let me give you the definition of hurdles.
We were having bad luck that we were constantly having our tyres “Punctured“ “Puncture“ “Puncture“ and we were playing puncture puncture.
First it was saadam uncle's bike turn.
Funky????? When we reached Kel, so in the morning there were 2 puncture in my bike.
My tire was also tubeless, it was fixed and then it was late so we went to Arang Kel.
Uplifting??? “WHAT HAPPENED?” “BREATHE!” “TODAY I LEARNT THE IMPORTANCE OF OXYGEN” When we came back, in the morning we saw the tire was again punctured.
The tire was tubeless, so no one knows about how to fix this; a temporary fix is being used.
But our real adventure was Shounter , and it was the place where I finally found offroad .
I was behind from everyone and my father was motivating me that “Stay together” “Keep calm! Don’t be tensed!” The first part of track was easily covered.
In the middle, there came some heights where riding as a single rider was very difficult.
And because I was a single rider from the start so I thought I was going to ride better than everyone, but for me the whole situation went opposite and i couldn't succed.
So? Shoes are wet?” For the first time my kids have done such an extreme off-roading.
Nofil, Uneeb rode bike on such tracks.
I didn’t had confidence that they would ride such good bike specially Uneeb , MashAllah.
I appreciate him.
And Nofil also did well.
From the start, Nofil was looking for off road.
And when we reached Shounter , at the off roading part , nofil became hopeless.
“You were hopeless!” And then the part of real offroading started where single riders couldn’t ride Come single This isn't the right way “its that way” “Push the bike” “The bike is tired!” For these kinds of places helicopter is the best.
Bro it is not about helicopter, the bike is not built for this purpose.
The Company made this bike with lower end torque We agreed on this.
They didn’t said to ride on such tracks.
I don’t think it will go any further.
GT road is okay, that Murree express is also fine where the bike was a pleasure to ride.
It is a tough track.
“Sighs” Quaid e Azam has a saying: “Unity, Faith and Discipline.
” These three things are very necessary for a tour.
I mean either your tour can be ruined, or be a peaceful one.
Thanks to God that we had all of these three things.
There was unity, whenever bike needed a push, There was also faith that no one lost hope and the biggest of all there was a unique discipline.
It was indeed very difficult because of extreme ascents.
It was such difficult that I had to get off and sometimes push the bike but still kept ourselves motivated.
“Why don’t you want to go ahead?” “Because to the track.
” “Grandfather was surely right.
” “We should have listened him.
” “I just have this concern that days are being wasted yet nothing is being achieved.
” Bikes are already ruined “Mr.
Uneeb is differently exhausted.
” “By pushing the bike, again and again.
” “Look at him, how is he coming?” “I will give him a advice that lets go back, I think we will have to sell these bikes.
” “Why?” “We have used them up to their ends limits.
” “I am feeling exhausted.
I was waiting that if some car is coming then I will come in it.
” “I think It is better not to waste money daily and we should head back “I will drink sting today and see what happens.
” “I say lets go back.
” Its better to go back “We don’t want to do trekking so for what are we going further?” Let's go back.
“Its better” “Think of your brothers too.
” “If the bike malfunctions, then it will be a big problem.
” It is more tough No! No! Are you mad? “Its Extreme” Too extreme You scared? “Yes”feeling scared Scared!!!!!!.
