North South Motorcycle Expedition by Advento360 for which Throttle was the biking partner was successfully completed recently. 39 riders rode through some gruelling landscapes, riding from Leh to Kanyakumari, covering a distance of 3810+ kms in 7 days.
Here is what some riders have to say about their awesome feat:
Judah Precious, the youngest rider of the group completed the ride on his Bajaj Dominar 400. He started his ride from Delhi and rode across Leh, Jispa, Chandigarh, Gwalior, Nagpur, Hyderabad, Bangalore and finally reached Kanyakumari. His best experiences include riding in snow, rains, bad roads and slush. But nothing stopped him from achieving what he had dreamt for since last three years. He is very happy to be the youngest rider to have completed the expedition successfully. He would like to thank Balaji Mohan for organizing this ride.
Prateek Chaturvedi and his wife Shikha completed their K2K dream ride with withering snow, scorching heat, rains, bad roads, black ice, slushy water crossings having maggi, aloo paratha, poha, biryani, idli sambhar crossing 12 states and 4000 kms. They started from Leh on September 16, at 6:10 am and reached Kanyakumari on September 22, at 7:57 pm. They took the Leh-Jispa-Chandigarh-Gwalior-Nagpur-Hyderabad-Bangalore-Kanyakumari route to finish their expedition.
A lot of people suggested them to take Jammu Srinagar route while going to Leh but they took Manali-Jispa route to Leh via which they had to come back for the record ride, to prepare well for the ride. Manali-Jispa-Leh route has all the highest passes of the Ladakh region...so they wanted to take this route to test the bike and themselves. They encountered bad roads, water crossings, weather throughout the ride.
Vaishali Bhagat, an avid rider, who has successfully completed many riding challenges earlier was very happy to participate in this expedition. Balaji Mohan, the man behind this expedition was happy to guide the group for this expedition.
Throttle Team wishes him for heartiest congratulations for this awesome feat !
