Leh Trip june 2017

Only bikes and camping

Hi,
I am a Delhi based traveller. I had done Delhi to Leh on a bajaj pulsar 150 in the year 2002 and 2004. It was a time when Indian travellers were very rarely found on these roads. In the year 2009 i got myself a royal enfield thunderbird 350 to do the Leh trip again but unfortunately nothing ever materialized.
2017 june is when i want to do this bike trip to Leh. I am alone and have no one who is travelling with me. I want this trip to be a little different that all the trips i have done with my SUV.....
1. I do not want to stay in resorts and want to camp all throughout the journey except Manali and Leh. I will be carrying my own tent for the same.
2. Food that i'll carry is what you get in the 24/7. It will basically comprise of canned tuna, rice, canned fruits, veggies that last long etc. I am a very good cook so i guess food is all taken care of.
3. Will carry solid fuel in order to prepare meals, boil water etc.
4. Will be visiting Pangong lake and Nubra Valley after reaching leh and again the plan is to camp.

I am open to suggestions and can also do this trip in my SUV (XUV500) if i can find three more people who are enthu enough to try out what i plan to do.

Travel dates are not confirmed. It can be as per the convenience of everyone who wishes to tag along.
