Manali – Leh Things to Carry

THIS IS A SMALL LIST OF THINGS THAT YOU SHOULD CARRY ON YOUR MANALI TO LADAKH EXPIDITION. THERE ARE ENDLESS ENTRIES TO THE LIST BUT THESE ARE THE ONES THAT WE THINK ARE THE MOST ESSENTIAL. 

RIDING GEAR:

  1. RIDING JACKET – IF ITS TOO EXPENSIVE TO GET ONE PLEASE GET ATLEAST A PAIR OF KNEE AND ELBOW GUARDS. COST 600 – 2500
  2. RIDING PANTS
  3. RIDING SHOES – IF YOU DON’T HAVE ONE, YOU CAN BUY ATLEAST DUCKBACKS ( GUMBOOTS ). THEY WONT GIVE YOU ANY PROTECTION BUT WILL ATLEAST SAVE YOUR FEET FROM GETTING WET. DO NOT WEAR SHOES YOU ARE INTTENDED TO WEAR ON YOUR TRIP ON THESE ROAD TRIPS AS THEY ARE BOUND TO GET WET ON THIS ROUTE. COST 250 – 400 RS.
  4. HELMET – BETTER A FULL FACE WITH TRANSPARENT VISOR.
  5. GLOVESGET 2 PAIRS OF GLOVES. ONE SHOULD BE WATERPROOF AND WITH GRIPS. ANOTHER ONE CAN BE NORMAL
  6. BALACAVA 
  7. MONKEY CAP AND A MUFFLER – THESE CAN BE LIFE SAVORS 😉 
  8. SUNGLASSES

BIKE SPARES:

  1. SPARK PLUGS : IF YOU HAVE A TWIN SPARK CARRY BOTH THE SIZES OF SPARK PLUGS.

  2. THROTTLE AND CLUTCH WIRE : CARRY ONE OF EACH AS THEY DON’T REALLY BREAK MUCH. CLUTCH CABLE IS EASY TO CHANGE BUT MAKE SURE YOU KNOW HOW TO CHANGE THE THROTTLE CABLE AS IT CAN BE A BIT TRICKY.

  3. DISK PADS : CARRY A SPARE SET OF DISK PADS. IMPORTANT: IF YOU ARE RIDING THE NEW THUNDERBIRDS 350/500CC WITH DISK IN THE REAR, PLEASE MAKE SURE YOU CARRY ATLEAST SET OF 2 DISK PADS AS THEY ARE VERY RARELY AVAILABLE IN THE MARKET

  4. TYRE TUBES : CARRY ATLEAST 2 OF THESE. IT IS ONE OF THE WORST FEELINGS TO HAVE A FLAT TYRE IN MIDDLE OF NOWHERE AND UNLOADING YOUR WHOLE BIKE TO GET THE THING FIXED. EVEN MORE CHALANGE IF YOU ARE ALONE. ALSO NOTE THAT BE VERY CAREFULL WHILE USING THE TOOLS TO FIT THE TUBE BACK IN THE WHEEL.
  5. 24 X 27 KEY: IT’S IMPORTANT TO OPEN THE WHEEL IN CASE YOU HAVE A FLAT TRYE. ALSO THE TOOLS TO OPEN THE TYRE.
  6. ENGINE OIL : CARRY ATLEAST 1 LITER OF ENGINE OIL AS BIKES TEND TO EAT UP MORE OIL IN HIGH ALTITUDES . HENCE CHECK ENGINE OIL EVERYMORNING BEFORE YOU START YOUR RIDE.
  7. CHAIN LINK : GET A SET OF 2 .. NOT REALLY REQUIRED BUT BETTER TO HAVE .
  8. SPARE FUSE : KEEP A FEW OF THESE AND MAKE SURE YOU TAKE THE RIGHT ONE.
  9. BLACK TAPE : JUST IN CSE YOU NEED IT…
  10. PUNCTURES : EVEN THOUGH YOU HAVE TUBE, CARRY A FEW PUNCTURES AS WELL.
  11. SPARE HEDLIGHT BULB : ACTUALLY YOU SHOULD AVOID RIDING AFTER 5 PM IN THE MOUNTAINS ESPECIALLY WHEN RIDING FROM MANALI TO LADAKH. STILL FOR THOSE DAREDEVILS BETTER HAVE A SPARE BULB.
  12. SPRINGS : CARRY A FEW OF SIDE STAND SPRINGS ARE THEY ARE TEND TO BREAK VERY OFTEN.

ALSO CARRY YOUR VEHICLE REGISTRATION CERTIFICATE, LICENSE, INSURANCE PAPERS, PUC. HAVE ATLEAST 2 COPY OF THOSE.

NEVER COMPROMISE ON YOUR SAFETY AND SAFETY OF YOUR BIKE !
