I spent a week in Playa Grande and area last September and really want to do a moto trip there as well. Love CR!! I've been reading at work and, unfortunately, none of the photos download so I am full of imaginary CR scenery and ticos, etc. Thanks for the RR. Makes me wonder if my wife would go for this...........

Wild-Rider rents suv's too. Let her ride along in luxury if she wants. Just a thought...

I've forgotten how much I miss Costa Rica while looking at those pics.
Not the meals though. I had the same combo of beans, rice, pineapple, and guava three times a day for two weeks.
The thing that really amazed me there was the number of "Imperial" beer ads.

Great ride report

Oh yeah, that was a good one. Makes me want to take the wife of 38 years on a vacation with my DR650, but she won't ride. Something about not wanting to undo her hip replacement by crashing...

A-Bone...
At 25+ years, we're definitely at the "function above form" stage...hence the chubby cheek shot of Carla. Notice I didn't put any of those of me in...and there were some.
Thanks for the attaboy, thats always appreciated.
As far as the size of the bike...I got raised eyebrows everytime I told people how big the DR was. Very unusual to see anything as big as that even. The only big bikes I saw anywhere, were on the Pan American hwy, and I could count them on one hand.

Hope your project is going well. Gotta stop by and give you some manual labor if you need it.

I notice you almost cropped yourself out of the swimming-in-the-ocean pic...

As far as the size of the bikes: You've got to figure if the biggest roads through most of a country are what we would consider side roads here, then what do you need a big ass bike for??? Remember on that ride out through Actworth to go grab the NH tag in So West NH last year, the 12GS got sideways on you right where the pavement switched to gravel on a corner with no warning... I'm guessing that at that moment a 650 or smaller would have been a whole lot easier to get back in line than a full size monster.... Way to keep it up though...

The pharmacy is comming along... should be open by the end of next month... I hope... I may rope you into some labor intensive task one of these days.... you've been warned... Do you have a mobile pressure washer with a heating element at the shop???

Yup...Pressure washer but no heat. If you got a hot water outlet, you could use that as the water source for the unit. You can use it anytime you like.
