And he who skips Colombia has made a grave mistake, its one of the greatest motorcycle countries in the world

Update on Colombia

Seems there are still a few haters out there running around out there saying that Colombia is dangerous. Feel free to scroll through these testimonials from riders who have actually been there recently and see if you agree:

Loved Colombia (ride reports...tuckers to tdf) wouldn't have missed it for the World. The dreaded Meddellin was really quite nice for a big city with a LOT of traffic. Cartagena was awesome. The ride through Colombia was epic!
