BRM 600. After a short stint of drama, I finally rode this, with Somaskanda, Ashok T. and Yuva.

Freezing cold at nights.. Extreme heat at days and both, associated with head winds..

Thanks to Deepsan 's advice, I tried a cap this time, inside helmet. My problem of undipped head lights from oncoming vehicles were solved. Also, comparatively, the dust/air/sunlight reaching eyes reduced.

There were several occasions I wanted to quit and take bus, but the letters PBP holded me to ride further..

Surprisingly, all four of us suffered uncontrollable sleep problem, the second night.. Frequent sleep breaks made the buffer time to reduce from around 3 hrs to 0.

    Ashokji : Thank you ji :-)... Yes really... We need to work more on that cold part...

    Deepsan : I accept that.. Need to really work on timings...
    But the winds in the cold as well as heat proved tough..
