The feeling of open space on a motorbike helped us at least from boredom. This stretch of road between Calgary and Regina is normally pretty much boring. Usually, it takes about 6-7hours of driving. This time, it took us a whopping 10 hours to reach Regina as we took several stops. We even had a one 2-hour stop at Medicine Hat.

On our way to Regina, just after Medicine Hat, we somehow caught the tail-end of a thunderstorm. As we continued driving under the rain, we still felt comfortable. I guess we came prepared for this.

NOTE to ourselves: driving high-speed at +14C is very cold without the proper gears; driving even at +20C without the proper gears is still cold; and driving at +30C with mesh jackets/with our gears is just as comfortable when you are cruising but will cook you slowly at stops!

Gears: Armored Mesh Motorcycle jackets, boots, gloves, thin waterproof rain jackets with hoodies for underlayer when needed, another layer of sweater if needed. DO NOT GO without these basic essentials; otherwise, you will be hypothermic even at a +20C run specially when driving through the mountains.
