Default Ladakh 2009 - Yet again.

Since Nov'04, when I saw snow in real. I always wanted to ride on snow covered road with plenty of snow all around me.

So, after my 2008 visit to Ladakh, I decided in 09 it will be as soon as the roads are opened for Ladakh. So, me on Fiero and my friend Nitin(Trance_nut) from Delhi on his CBZ decided to head to snowland in first week of June.

June 06: 462km: Dehi - Sundernagar
June 07: 270km: Sundernagar - Keylong
June 08: 367km: Keylong - Leh
June 09: 144km: Leh - Nimoo - Chilling - Leh
June 10: 156km: Leh - Karu - Pangong Tso
June 11: 309km: Pangong Tso - Karu - Upshi - Mahe - Tso Moriri
June 12: 335km: Tso Moriri - Sumdo - Tso Kar - Pang - Sarchu - Keylong
June 13: 261km: Keylong - Sundernagar
June 14: 460km: Sundernagar - Delhi

Trip distance: ~2,700kms.

A few pictures to kick start the fun. The trip log of this one will definatly come in next couple of days.

a fiero conquering Leh. This should be amazing. I see that you have the new headlight fairing?. Did you do any mod to the bike or is it stock?.
