Radioman, This looks like the fort that was used in the 1984 movie "Romancing the stone" with Michael Douglass and Kathleen Turner. Part of the movie took place in a Cartagena old fort. for what it's worth, rj

Pliers and Police Motorcycles

Hi - Nice shot of the flying pliers Mark. My question today, if you'll indulge me. l. Is that a Honda Transalp that the police were riding?

Thanks - be safe and see it all while you can.

Awesome shots Radioman! Meagan had seen the ones you posted to Facebook and said I would, "Crap my pants" - and although graphic, she was almost right! Just more than a bit envious of your trip at this point!

I do have a serious question though - OK, almost serious.

You've been riding in the tropical/rain forest/jungle heat and humidity. How is it that you smell fresh enough for the locals to want to get near you for a picture? I know from my summer trips that a day in a helmet and gear makes me smell like something that died last week and was rotted in the sun...

Ride safe!

C.

Gear gets sweaty for sure. Quick dry shirts and pants help as I can wash and hang them to dry. Otherwise I think it is just the good looks that does it
