Costa Rica
 
Anybody going soon?
I need to get some parts down to my buddy there, cold cerveza if you can help out.....:evil

Also, if anyone is interested in good single track riding down there, pm me. My next trip down should be in Feb.

I just got back from there. I was right at the weight limit of my luggage anyway 49.5 pounds out of an allowed 50.

I would love to spend a week there on my XR650L.

I think the regulator would have made it under the weight! Fly taca and they let you take 2 bags free.

Check out my youtube or FB page sometime.....

Just checked my Taca millas and it looks like I have a free ticket or two, woohoo!
First half of Feb is the plan, LAX - SJO :1drink

i'm trying to get a group of guys to maybe rent some bikes and do some riding -sounds like you know costa rica and where to ride
any good areas for single track and maybe a map ?

we would like to maybe rent a place or hotel it in one spot and ride the area for 3 or 4 days returning to a home base every nite .
i love saddle baging but some of the guys, that may go -i don't think could handle a full 3 or 4 days riding in a row.

any info would be great

day or two
 
So this may be a long shot, but I am headed to Costa Rica in March for a Habitat for Humanity build in Las Vueltas. The build finishes up on Sat. March 16, and I don't leave San Jose till Tues. the 19th. I was thinking about renting a bike - I have done a 10 day self-guided riding tour through MotoDiscovery several years ago, so I am familiar with the condition of the roads. I won't have gear with me for dirtbiking, but I will have boots, gloves, long pants and a jacket. Am I crazy to see if anyone would be up for playing tour guide on a day road ride? Obviously I would need to borrow/rent a helmet and bike. Suggestions?:ear I currently own a KTM 950 and a 525, and can give a long list of references as to my riding abilities if anyone is considering a loaner. :ricky
Pura Vida!

Oh and if anyone needs small parts transported, let me know. I travel light, carry-on only. :norton

If I was there I'd say no problemo! Still working this day job though....

The cheapest rental is an xr250 from WildRiders, $50
The orange rental company quoted me $295 for a guided day (enduro) ride... https://www.mototourscostarica.com/D...f_Rentals.html
These guys are pretty good;

Now I need to get a new bottom and top end down there....
I found a shipping company, MariaBarquero, about $200 and 3-4 weeks door to door. Still cheaper than buying the parts down there :deal
My next trip down is in July.
