Entering into Belgium

One of the most strangest thing was that in the fuelling station - I had to pay first and and then take the fuel. I am sure it never happened in this way to me riding across UK in all this while. Was strange at first but I knew what I could expect in the rest of the ride going through before the outbreak of the dawn.





Riding into the outbreak of the day, it seems to be like a time travel.



Riding on the R0 of the Belgium Ring and losing my direction. Although it was bit difficult in the early hours and the only place where I went on the wrong side of the lane after riding only on the highways. Apparently the car coming in its right lane and Me positioned wrongly - Reminded me that I m wrong.

Moreover, losing a bit of direction ofcourse made me feel more unhappy and angry on myself.....

Just one turn before my intended turn on A3 and I landed on the Airport section of the Belgium next to R0. The best thing happened here was - It is 4.20am and the guy standing for his cab. I asked him for Leuven and he simply didnt understand english. So, he told me with the standard language of signs and actions that follow his car - and when on the way - I see signboard for Leuven take the exit and be on that road.

That was fair enough that I could understand and following his cab, he switched on his indicators to let me know that I have to go that way and There I was on my way again. Getting ot a point where I was still looking for little more direction.

Blurry because they were all on the move and not a single moment to stop .. - Except that.... it was still dark.

But here we go for more...
-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_

I was just looking into the maps to understand my exact location and there I saw this biker to whom I waved and asked for help and there he was ...
A Pro Biker



This time my Question to him was : Do you understand english ?
He answered : A little bit yes.
I am lost on my directions to Leuven -
No problem, Follow me - I am on my way to work and will get you to A3. From there I take right but you can be on your direction.

To a Biker from a Biker... The Bikers are sooper





On my way following the Biker Angel.... He guided me into the Leuven A314 on the A3 taking me into A2 which eventually gets me going into Netherlands for quick short run and into the Germany...

Ride .... Chill.... Morning..

Damn, its getting chilly and even more chilly as the wait for the sun gets shorten.. the morning mist makes it even more harder..

Following the directions, my body was ready for the warm heat and some break to heat up my manki too :)
Down the A2/E314 came the next break.. ..


Early morning and finding some company, it looks good ahead.. lets go and see..

After 272miles/435kms it all looks fine so far... Possibly just the chill and the cold but hopefully that shall all be gone in next few mins.


Time to finally heat up myself and the Manki...

what better than the Coffeee when it really is making u eat the chill :) last 2hrs or so.. its been riding only in the chill and somehow quite unexpected .. atleast did not fear that it would get so chilly..

Getting to warm up myself with the coffee slowly and getting to see..
The other biker around the other corner was busy digging his morning in the newspaper .. so no disturbing.. Me carrying on my warming up session...


its 6.35am and really looking bright ahead but who knows.. this chill still puts me in two minds regarding what comes next !!



& Mr Manki comes out of the shell to get himself some heat to soak up... Manki'O'Manki


& the breakfast time for Mr. Manki to get the Apple morning.. Oh.. he is so Mean...

He Yelled... One More... So here we go with one.. More.. "Sehr Gute"



& one from the Real M. :) Begining a day with an apple and following the saying to keep the doc away





Getting ready for the next route..
