The Dream Ride | Draft Plan | Kolkata to Ladakh on Motorcycle 2017

Please follow this post for the Final Plan


Dunno, if I will ever be able to execute this. But, this is the initial draft plan.

Yes it is big. It is a dream to realize.

There will be major roadblocks and many uncertainties for sure. For now, it is just an imagination, a dream which I want to materialize.

Riding a motorcycle across around 7000 kms in 23 days is definitely a mammoth plan in itself but it is not impossible. If your passion for riding is strong enough and if your roadblocks are clear, it can be done without any hiccups.

There have been motorcycle rides from Kolkata to Ladakh to Kolkata in the past. Rolling Wheels has such an episode published in Youtube.
There are also numerous others who have completed such journeys over such distances successfully in the past. Mumbai to Ladakh (e.g. Mumbaiker Nikhil), Bangalore to Ladakh, Hyderabad to Ladakh and many more.

Initial Roadblocks:
1. Convincing Family
2. Leave for a 15 working days (23 tour days)

Things considered while planning:
1. Every weekend is consumed to minimize the number of working days.
2. In 23 days: 2 days constitute light riding/more rest and 3 days of full rest in between

Improvements that can be done to Plan:
1. We can easily minimize 23 days to less number of days keeping the same travel route and plan
2. Please suggest. Please comment.
