Trip to Pantanal in Brasil

 photo IMG_2216_zps205aaad8.jpg
Meeting with buddy in his XT660Z

Front view of a neat bike slightly modified (Jaume take notice)

On our way through the Andes crossing from Chile to Argentina

First stop to rest

Back to back

Side to side

Resting in Barreal, Argentina

Filling stomachs

After 6000 kms (4000 miles)

Needs a wash

Nice Raven

Bucket very necessary in Bolivia, they will not sell gasoline to foreign bikes at regular price ($0.50 a liter)

Black Pearl at home

Slight oil dirt because the screwed tap is cracked

Dirty right side

The rear Heidenau K60 (150/70/18) after 6000 kms on Woody's rim

Left dirty side with a slightly bent shift pedal due to a standing spill

Trip log with 6672 kms

In a bike with 50806 kms (32000 miles app.)
Cheers,
Roberto aka Thagua

I've got a great idea. You leave your wife with me at the lake and I'll lend you a bike to
go ride the Grand Canyon. Really, what else are friends for?

Let me know when you come to Arizona. I'm sure we can find you something to ride while you're here

(It probably won't be as nice or fancy as your beautiful machines, but it'll have two wheels and an engine that runs)

This is my first trip to the Alps. Unfortunatelly there aren't many off road tracks allowed but is a beautifull area also to ride in roads.
