I don't leave until the 26th of Jan, 2013 and I'll be there this time till March 9. I thought about renting a bike, but there's a good chance I'll be going to CR three times over the next 14 months, one 3 week and two 6 week stays. So I think buying one makes sense...but can't break the budget.
I'm about ready to buy a new Honda CGL 125. Dealer wants $1900 which includes six month guarantee and all taxes and insurance for 2013. I'm going to offer $1800 and see what they say. There are a couple of used 2012 ones going for $1500, but taxes and insurance can be around $150, so that's not much different. My brother in law will purchase it for me, put it in his name, then use it when I'm not there. A few shots of the color I think
is available. We'll see how it goes!
