I am planning to travel to Leh/Ladakh on my Avenger 220 in this month (July).

This will be my first drive to Ladakh so I am looking for people who have experience on the Avenger on such long routes. I don't mind if you are an individual or a group as long as we can look out for each other :)

Not decided on the dates but am free most of the time.

Looking forward.

Hi friends Bajaj avenger is an awesome bike and for long routes its extremly comfortable..provides better leg and back support than other popular bikes on leh routes..i just came back from leh 2 weeks back. I rode my avenger from delhi to srinagar, leh manali del.The most important thing to remeber is to take along spares..while for bullet you ll find almost everyyhing along the route, for avenger you would not get anything at all. Not even the tube even in the cities along the way. Let me know if you ve any specific questions..:) best wishes.

Hi Jainischalverma,

I am Rakesh from Mumbai & have planned Ladakh trip too in July. I am travelling solo on my RE. I am starting from Mumbai on 28/7 by Swaraj Exp. Would be doing Jammu-Srinagar-Kargil (Parikutchey)-Zanskar (Padum)-Panikar-Alchi-Leh-Nubra-Pangong-Tsomoriri-Manali-Chandigarh. Total 22 days. If you could match the dates, we can plan together.
