Continued from Part 3.
A quite big gas station after Padang Sidempuan. They sold Pertamax here. To be safe, each time we filled in the gas full tank every about 150 km ride.
We arrived at about 12.30 a.m. in Sipirok city and stoped at “Rumah Makan Siang Malam” which is the best restautant in town.
It was rain when we had our lunch. So, Bona and Samuel prepared themselve for a wet ride after lunch. In fact the rest of us did not use our rain coat and wait until it was really the case that we have to ride in the rain. Otherwise it will be quite hot to wear the rain coat.
Here we are.. Not too far from Sipirok we met the road that should be classified as off road. We have to be extra careful here.. And, I wait until one by one rider passing and slowly rode down hill, then I followed them from the back.
My Multistrada has no problem at all with the road and I soon be in the midle of the convoy. But then.. I saw Rizal stopped and pull a side his bike. I stoped at the hill’s top and wait for him. Oh.. please don’t get any trouble in the midle of slipery mud road and fogy jungle like this… So I tried to find a safe place to park my bike and check him out.. I was worry..
The whether was quite friendly and the rain has stoped. We increase the speed to be able to be in Prapat before te dark, if possible. Last short break and refuel, we filled in the gas on the hilly road after Siborongborong.
But we were all ok and contine the ride and finally finished safely at Niagara Hotel, Prapat just after sunset.
Well.. although not the longest I know this is the hardest part of our ride. So I was so happy that we are all manage to be in Prapat safely. Having dinner and a chat at the hotel’s restaurant. I took a deep sleep thereafter…
Tomorrow we will have a relaxing ride, not too far to Medan. See the report in Part 5.
