Having ridden with Heiko from Germany for the majority of the last 2 months this morning I leave on my own as we are heading in different directions.
Heiko would be the first to agree that he is unlike most Germans, he displays similar traits in his preparation, efficiency and is prepared for most eventualities but he is an individual too. It’s been good ridding with you Heiko, we have experienced some amazing riding that will stay with us forever I’m sure.
Ride safe and hopefully we’ll catch up on the road again.
I felt good as I rode down the valley with blue skies, towering mountains and the river rushing south beside me. It’s with mixed feelings I leave the mountains, on the one hand I have had the most amazing time both in Northern Pakistan and in Northern India but it’s been hard work and I feel some time away from ‘off roading’ will be good.
After 230km I reached the bottom of the mountain and I was black with dust and diesel fumes from the hundreds of lorries I passed.
Have I mentioned how dangerous the drivers are in Northern India! They have no idea how to drive and no concern for their own or other drivers safety!
