Day 4 ( 31st May)
Plan : Sujangarh to Moga
Actual : Sujangarh to Faridkot (Punjab)


Today we were excited as we will be crossing the real desert of Rajasthan and were not sure how hot it will be to ride through this climate.

Cleaned the bike as it got dirty because of the dust for driving last few days.

As usual got ready early and hit the road, as our hotel was on highway it was easy to start cruising with decent speed before Sun starts shinning bright :weedman:

First stop was on the way for breakfast , again we got good dhaba serving authentic paratha's. We went around doing some photography after ordering the food, as it was expected to take some time and our model Deepesh was getting ready for photo shoot in real desert.

The Dhaba :

Whether was really hot and we had to literally stop every 30-40mins to drink some water , i was soaking my balaclava in cold water whenever we stopped. As it was completely dry region and desert on both sides. Because of the wind sand was coming all over the road which was reducing the speeds.

Here they have huts made with bamboo and have some khatiya ( Beds) which really helps keeping the place cool. We also spotted a bird while seating inside there.

Huts made with dry grass :

Throughout this trip we followed one rule, where we used to have heavy breakfast and lunch should be light to avoid the afternoon laziness. today also we saw a fruit stall and order one full watermelon and one full musk melon which was finished by 3 of us in no time. It was really refreshing.

We were really enjoying the ride, even though it was hot and stopped in between before Bhatinda for a Jumbo glass of Sugarcane Juice freshly made.

Around 5pm we reached Bhatinda and thinking if we take a break here for the night. But Shridhar went and asked few people about the staying option at Moga, thats when we realised it's off track from the road to Amritsar and locals suggested that we should halt at Faridkot which on the same route which goes further to Amritsar.

Nice collage
But
Is this a shortcut to end the log:-k ?????????????
No Gaurav, will not disappoint you. Will write it till the end. Difficult to manage office and updating this log at the same time during the weekday.

Will definitely take you to Leh in next 2 days as weekend will give me more time to update =D>
