ATTN: DIANA, THE TWO GIRLS AND I HAVE MOVED TO MEDELLIN APRIL 2012 TO START A BRANCH OF OUR MOTORCYCLE TOUR AND RENTAL BUSINESS - MOTOLOMBIA AND WILL NOT BE AT THE HOSTEL ON A DAILY BASIS. DIANA'S SISTER LEIDY WILL BE ADMINISTRATING THE HOSTEL LIKE SHE HAS BEEN DOING THE LAST COUPLE OF YEARS. SO NOTHING CHANGES. MIKE WILL STILL BE AVAILABLE ON EMAIL OR PHONE FOR ANY HELP YOU MIGHT NEED IN CALI.

WHILE WE WILL NOT BE OPENING A HOSTEL IN MEDELLIN, WE WILL OPEN OUR PRIVATE HOME TO THE BIKER COMMUNITY. WE HAVE TWO GUEST ROOMS AND SPACE TO PUT UP A TENT OR TWO IN OUR GARDEN. PRICE IS 50.000 PESOS PER PERSON/DAY AND YOU'RE FREE TO USE THE HOUSE LIKE YOUR OWN. COOK YOUR FOOD IN YOUR KITCHEN, RELAX ON THE PATIO WITH GRILL AND HAMMOCK, WORK ON YOUR BIKE IN MIKE'S 5-CAR GARAGE WORK-SHOP AND USE THE TOOLS AVAILABLE.


SO IF YOU'RE LOOKING AT A MORE SUBURBAN QUIET AND RELAXING TIME IN MEDELLIN FEEL FREE TO DROP US A PM!!!



And here's a bunch of our biker guests:

Great pics Mike! Good to see such an influx of bikers in less than one year! Hoping to network with you so that all the riders continue to choose the best places to stop in each of the cities on our route! By the way, will be heading down to see you in the first part of '09!

Hi Buddy

You're welcome, hope you figured out a good solution for the bike shipment. I have now started the process of suing this other shipping guy...

It would be great with a biker lodging network for Colombia. People always ask about other cities and where to go!

Hi I think its Jorge and Sory that owns it now. But I also think Sory is Pacos daughter.

There a group on Facebook about Paco:

Yup, more motorcycle maintenance, the full stuff, the stuff that makes the road worth while. Thanks to Mike, I was able to change my time!

Are they Canadian? Strangely I recognize the panniers on the KLR but can't quite recognize the faces in that photo and I thought they were both on BMW. I think I met them in Valpo

Mike,
Thanks for the pics, and for all your help when I was in Cali. I'm now back in Panama and the bike is in Buenos Aires. I'll return to BA in July and ride back to Panama through Brazil and Venezuela.
