Hard to tell, just picked up my bike this morning. I'm really looking forward to exploring the country. Getting my bike organized with Girag to fly over was kind of like going through two borders . . . twice. Lots of waiting.
I dropped my bike off on Friday and Girag wouldn't have it available until today. Fortunately I have some friends in Bogota so leaned on their hospitality for a few days. Bogota is a massive town (10 Million) and should be avoided at all costs on a motorcycle. The drivers are stupid crazy and the traffic is insane.
I'll head over towards Medellin in the next few days and camp out there for awhile.
Ride safe and enjoy the boat trip.
