Day 9/10 th/26th April 2014
After 4/5 tense days today was a good day. Vikas and Priyanka left for Shimla and will be taking overnight bus to Delhi. We had breakfast and straightaway went to see the mechanic.
Bobby – The guy who finally fixed the Black Bull
Adi has already purchased the chainset yesterday so it was just a matter of 20 mins when Black Bull was roaring again.
The damaged Chainset – close look will reveal that there are no grooves
Day 9/10 Route Map
We had our lunch at Rampur and moved towards Shimla. It was almost evening when we reached Narkanda and decided that we will have a night halt at Shimla. Since Vikas had already reached Shimla he arranged for our stay and all four of us again met at Shimla for dinner.

The evening was spent roaming around at the mall road in Shimla. The next Morning me and Adi moved from Shimla to reach Delhi by evening.
This was one hell of a ride : met with an accident the 1st day ,Welcomed by snowfall at Narkanda ,Night ride in heavy rain with slush to reach Rekong Peo , Escaped missiles like falling stones while riding on the world’s most treacherous road , Became 1st bikers of the season to reach village Losar and Komic (the highest motor able village) , Experienced what’s it’s like to ride a motorcycle in minus 10 degrees, Made two great friends (Vikas & Priyanka) , Humbled by the efforts of Jamaica to help us in every way and last but not the least the amazing scenic beauty of SPITI valley.
Incredible India – Unforgettable HIMACHAL
We will be back soon…!
