Headed to Nepal, - 950 km approx -01

Am Up at 0300 hours, little butterflies in the stomach, we start ride to Nepal today, & call time in 0600 hours

Rajat Ready for the road

The rides sees me go inward and dwell on the self, it is a calm time as I prepare for the ride internally, and I wait for r0430 hours to wake up and start the routine to prepare for the ride, ( I know its foolish to follow time like this, but habit)

Finally the clock says 0435 am awake & extract myself from under the sheets, the cold seems to have subsided but is an illusion, while on the bike we are always cold, and n proper protection is must.

MOM is in town and insists on waking up and making tea and we sit have tea together n chit chat,
Its 0530 time to get my bags and tent and chair n all on the bike, (yes we do carry it all on the bike), so Ruma (my moms help) and me head down n saddle up, am set to leave the house at 0552.

At kadma, DOBO bridge

I will be at the meeting place by 0600 as planned and sure enough I am the only one at the location, a few calls later I am told other riders Sishir – is looking for his ridibg gloves  and Raja- saddling up  will show up soon,  Meanwhile Biswaroop, ( another rider )  bless him spots me on the road and gets coffee for us,  and I am treated to a hot steaming cup of coffee as we wait for the riders who would be accompanying me today, and 5 riders come to see us off, finally its 0730 hours and one of the bikes tank has developed a leak,  we are yet to leave town, so better to get it reapired before we start out, Raja heads out to the repair shop  and I head home, next call time is 1030 hours to touch base with sishir and raja and hope to leave town by 1100 hours today.

Crowed helping us inspect bike :)

Watch this space for more ,,,
