    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.. [​IMG]

    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..

    Picking up the Pace, it was still bit cold in the air and as I was heading more towards Germany.. it seemed to be getting bit more cool .... #
