Chiriqui Charlie on his XT250 took me out in the western highlands of Panama today. Here is the intrepid rider:
and some of the backroads we were on:
through coffee farms, orange groves, cow pastures with dairy cattle:
until we dropped down to the town of David (dah-veed) to stop at this little hole in the wall moto shop:
where they had a Kenda 270 for 45 bucks. I'll take it.
the center knobs on my rear tire were gone. I had thought of waiting until Colombia to buy a new rear, but when you find a cheap tire in Latin America buy it.
The taxis around here are all yellow Toyota corollas:
Had a nice meal in town at the Chinese restaurant before heading back up into the hills for an afternoon siesta.
