The Pink team left a little before us from Boigangaon. We’d expected them to be zipping along towards Guwahati. They had also taken the Goalpara route. About 75kms later we came across them, broken down, with the town and the kitchen sink giving them a staring reception! Their engine had just given up. We tried to get a mechanic from the town, but none of them had opened shop yet. They decided to drain the fuel tank, thinking there was a problem with the fuel line. Nothing much else we could have done at that point. Wished them well and we cracked on along the Long Long Way to Shillong.
