Yusaring- Himachal Pradesh. The point where Dhanno (our beloved bike) broke down for the first time ever since we embarked on our journey 3 days ago. We were still at a very initial phase on our trip to Spiti valley, although the tiredness of riding the bike for hours had already set in.
At this point, one of the rear tire of our bike went flat, the reason being a nail which had pierced through it. Because we didn't have a tubeless tire, we had to get this repaired as soon as possible. However, to our dismay, we almost felt like we were in the middle of nowhere. Even though every 2 mins a car or a bike whooshed past us, there were no shops to be seen at sight.
I, being tired of riding for hours as a pillion, took a much needed break from the ride and sat reclining on a piece of rock, gazing at the flowing water. Although it was sunny and warm outside, it wasn't so bad after all. Moreover, it was strange that I had no signs of worry or panic on my face. I was enjoying the moment; the roads, the bike, and the water flowing nearby. I knew that since we were on a bike trip, a flat tire is something we should have expected and been prepared for. So what was the point of being worried? So my co rider and I started thinking of ways to sort this out. After asking for help from a few riders who passed by, we got to know that a mechanic shop was around 4 kms away. We ended up deciding that I would hitch hike to the mechanic shop with my luggage whereas my co rider would get the bike to the location by riding (read: half sitting on it). We soon found a car going in the same direction as we were intending to go and asked help from the uncle driving it. (1/2) ------------------------------------------------------------
