The wind, warm and quick, rushed past the bikers as they made a slow descent to the banks of the Indus river. The engine had kept going but the riders needed to stop. It was hard work riding the passes, the hum hum of the classic bikes and and amazing views. Pete loved his Enfield more than his girlfriend, not that she knew that.
