I've forwarded your write-up to her email and (hopefully) planted another seed.

I am just starting constructing a "beach" house in El Porvenir, El Salvador being built by a former employee of mine who returned home. Simple, 2 bedroom, block and thatch, cheap. My plan is to stash two of the CG150 style bikes there year round and visit maybe 2-3 weeks a year. I wanted to do this in Monterrey Mexico, but that area is definitely on hold right now. Sadly, it never happened for me.

As far as storage of your fine little scoot...it is essentially the same bike as a CRF150F, and I have 3 f them. Turning off the gas, draining the bowl, putting a cap full of fuel stabilizer in the tank, and hooking a tender to the ***removed*** battery is all that is needed to assure your bike is ready to go in 6 months or 6 years. I'd trust that method over letting anyone chance a mishap on my bike when I'm not around. That said, I'm the first to offer up my 1000cc supersport to a new acquaintance and not really care about the outcome. But a bike stashed in CR, and developing mechanical issues just when you need it least is whole other can of worms.

Congrats on your life adventures. I hope I can be so brave soon.

Wow! 52 acres...that's quite a spread! RE your plans, I think trial runs are always a good way to find out what you want to do long term. You could rent a bike and do the 2up thing with esposa for a couple of weeks and that might give you an idea. Sounds like a wonderful plan in El Salvador--that's the only CA country I haven't visited yet....hmmmm, when's that house going to be done?

I thought about leaving the bike prepped as you pointed out, but I've got a neighbor and some family members who likely will use it, and I'd rather have it ready for them.

Hope your plans work for CR / ES!
