Day 3: Off to Sibasagar

Good morning! Today I'll be visiting the historic place in Asom,
Sibasagar. This place has a temple, a lake and some ruins of palaces,
all dating to the time of the Ahom dynasty. About 700-800 years old I
think.
I started off at 6 and have currently done about 30km. Breakfast due
in 10kms more :-) The road till now has been nice and flat. Great
scenes of sunkissed tea estates on either side of the road have kept
me engaged. Small cycle problems too - needed to fill air in the back
tyre and disengage the back brakes.

I plan to end in Jorhat - still about 100 km away(total for today
140), so some night riding is expected. For those worried about my
security, there is no military presence after Tinsukia - so no cause
for worry!

Your blog has a hardcore bikers perspective--relegated to describing the bike, road, lodging and such with the people,place and local culture being purely incidental.

Non-biking bloggers often are curious to know the last three most from an aliens original perspective.Hope you dont mind the rant;)
