Day 60 was a miserable day to remember. Yesterday´s drizzle was nothing compared to today´s combo. A good thing was that sleeping in a hotel allowed me to start the day dry. Little did it matter because as soon as I engaged first gear, I was already feeling the humidity in my bones. Temperatures had dropped drastically and as I gained speed my wet hands started to get tense spreading to the rest of the muscles in the lower and upper arm. Wind was also blowing hard, and affected my neck and back which I felt contractured everytime I stopped for fuel. I had got better at driving single handed and using the cylinder head to heat my other hand to relief some pain but this was just a desperate way to keep making more miles until I found a better solution. I tried changing globes a couple times but it was useless as both pairs I carried on me were not water proof, so they just lasted minutes until they got soak wet. I started feeling a bit sick and the only thing that made me feel better was a hot drink in the form of coffee or soup where I found one. In Omsk I stopped in the city centre to find a decent place where to make time until rain faded out a bit. They didn´t have much on offer other than a sandwich and coffee so as soon as I saw the sky opened up I left. Omsk was very dirty due to wet particles on the pavement which also made it very slippery. I felt how the rear wheel lost traction as I entered a roundabout and opened throttle. This never happens in such a low power output bike but here it did almost ending up in a fall. I had to get rid of the worn off road tires and put back the road ones I was carrying. Rain keeps hitting me from Omsk towards the west. I tried putting another set of globes for garden use and after this rain goes away. The wind stays and it is so strong it makes me ran out of fuel 60 km more than usual. With 100 octane fuel I should be getting better fuel mileage but the wind didn’t allow me to pass 100 kph on full open throttle. I managed to get on reserve to the next station where I got a well earnt lunch. The sky is finally clear but the road was a bit deteriorated and with increasing traffic this made me stay more vigilant than usual. With the remaining energy I set up my final destination in the town of Kurgan where I saw the sun go down as I entered the city. The sunsets in this part were simply spectacular. I found a hotel in the main street with a good restaurant and I didn´t have much to think after this day. While having dinner I realize I had three days approx. to Moscow left. Tomorrow it would likely be Ufa, and then crossing the Ural mountain range hopefully would steer the weather for the better.
