    Don't know what to say, I m speechless, for the beauty of the place has made me speechless.
    Pics don't do justice to what I have experienced or what I saw, feeling which goes on in the mind of every solo Traveler while travelling Solo i.e What if anything goes wrong, what if there will not be any help, what if any incident happens, but those thoughts just starts going away once you start riding, A feeling which all the bikers experience, a feeling of happiness that yes it is really happening, a sense of satisfaction when you achieve something at the end of the day, something which stays with you forever.

    Enough of this, now time for teasers-

    What do you do when you have 5 days in hand, for you shall contact people who are in your Family, friends, your touring group and find out, everybody is engaged with their prior commitments, then a thought sparks in your mind, why not SOLO, for travelling solo liberates the mind and that too on a Motorcycle.

    You decide lets do it, but there has to be a place where you need to go to, a destination where you should be heading and a place you haven't been before, you come across different options to you,
    1- Take the highway on a Beast and travel as far as possible down south and return to home after you have satiated your desire to tour on a motorcycle.
    2- Take the highway up north and head to Himalayas, a new hill station still unexplored by you, a place where you have been to in your childhood days, for this time it will be different, it will be you alone, nobody to give you company just- you, your motorcycle and a destination in your mind.

    Dates- 8th Oct 2016- 12th Oct 2016
