Is Mechanic Important ?
While for short trip around Leh, a mechanic may not be necessary .. For longer trips, it is important that a trained mechanic is part of the team .. Minor repairs and breakdown can be fixed and you can keep on the schedule .. If not your trip will be seriously jeopardised.
Yes, for longer trip a Mechanic is absolutely important so that you can keep to the schedule and recover from failure
If you are driving solo or a small group of 2-4 riders then adding a support vehicle will increase the cost quite a bit.. In this scenario, ask for luggage carrier which is fitted on the bikes and pack smartly so that you can carry luggage on the bike itself. Care must be taken to cover the luggage so that it is safe from all elements ( Dust, rain, snow ).
For experienced riders adding a carrier will not make much of a difference but for novice it adds to the difficulty as it demands increased balance and more toughness to negotiate tricky sections so take informed decision.
For example, imagine crossing this type of section with fully loaded bike
If you are planning the entire trip on bike then do invest in good personal riding gear from gloves, to knee guard, jackets, shoes etc so that you are properly equipped for the journey.
