Same veiw here.

Snow still falling. Because of the wind, depth ranges from grass blades showing to obscured wheels of my neighbor's car.

It was a dark and stormy night…. No really it was. But the following Saturday was beautiful! It turned out to be a great trip!!! The abridged version of the trip is:
The weather was great when I woke up Saturday AM, John thought it was going to rain and we would be postponed, so he drank his weight in Jagurmeister at a Friday night night party in Trinco. We met in Matale later than planned, after his hung over ass ran out of fuel before reaching me. There he was in his full face road bike helmet, big yellow bug eye rave glasses, weight lifting gloves and a bag wrapped in a big blue tarp bungeed to the back of his Suzuki Djebel trail bike. We call her Jezebel. It was going to be an interesting trip. He with all that, myself with a flat black German WWII helmet with flames, black t-shirt with a slogan on it that has caused my friends to call me "The Ambassador of Good F’n Will”, on a 2005, but engineered and designed in 1950’s Royal Enfield Bullet. We looked a very motley crew. We rode through the hills, and had a wonderful day of riding, even though we got lost and found ourselves way off course, where I hit a crater the size of the Grand Canyon, at speed and bottomed out the suspension and almost tossed me over the bars. We found a hut that sold beer and stopped to refresh our selves and find out where we were. None of the gents there spoke English, and from the looks of things had never seen a map. We would point to a town on the map, and they would say the name but couldn’t even tell us which direction it was in. Soon we figured out that the sun was on the wrong side of us, and we needed to flip 180. Oh well, the beers were good!
We spent the night in Badula, had some great food, many beers and headed out the next morning for Arugam Bay. We encountered a protest rally alnog the way, where we found ourselves sitting in the middle of some very angry people shouting slogans and waving banners in Sinhala, so I am not sure what they were upset about, but it was unmistakable they were UNHAPPY! We passed through many checkpoints with men with AK-47's asking us questions before laughing at us and letting us proceed. After searching the many establishments for one that had rooms, power AND cold beer, we settled into the Stardust Guest house for the next 2 days of sun, beer and watching the surf chica's on the beach. We rode down to Panama where the road turned to sand, and we turned back. We stopped along the way and found a place that sold liquor (which was rare as the area is mostly Muslim) and bought a bottle of Gin, as we finished the scotch and rum the night before. We proceeded to finish the gin by sundown, in our search for more libations we ran into some Israeli surfers where we smoked a jungle bong, drank and had a BBQ with them for the evening. In the morning we rode back to Kandy, almost running over a monkey along the way on our longest riding day of the trip. We hung out in Kandy for the next 2 days trying to wait out the rain and our friend Kris came up and hung out with us for the night. We drank, told stories, sang with the Sri Lankan version of a Marachee Band and played snooker in to the early morning hours. Someone should have sent us to our rooms much earlier, as we were all over served.
It was then time to part ways, as John was headed back north, and I south. On the way back to Colombo there was a traffic jam, due to a stubborn elephant in the road. About 20KM further down the road I witnessed an accident happen in front of me. A government minister in an armored Mercedes was in a caravan with Land Rover Defenders loaded with men armed with AK-47's and Uzis. The first Defender made it through but the armored Mercedes was struck broadside by a large dump truck. The car spun, and came to rest next to me. The first Defender stopped and all the men jumped out cocking their guns and surrounding the car. After a few tense moments with me frozen in their sights they relaxed and waved me on through. I arrived back home safe and sound, though with all the diesel smoke my face and arms were black with soot. It was a great ride. It was just over 1,000 KMs in about 5 days of real riding, on what they call roads. My only regret is that I hadn't done this sooner, But I will do it again!
Enjoyed meeting you the other day and can't wait for your upcoming Puerto Rican ride report. I've seen a lot of strange stuff riding in other countries, but never been able to put it to words like you.
