It was the beginning of the season and the passes were just about open. Harsh and I were talking and deciding on our years rides and thats when it hit us that it had been a few years since we had gone up to Leh just for our selfs and not with clients or with an agenda. So we got on the horn with the good peeps at Triumph India and they hooked us up with two motorcycles. The Triumph Tiger XCX 800 and the Triumph Explorer 1200 were to be our steeds for the duration of the ride. We decided to take the Srinagar way up and come down the Manali way as it had been a while since we had been over Zojila Pass as well. 

So we left the maddening heat of Delhi behind and made our way towards the mountains on the Triumph Tiger and what a ride it turned out to be…
