Panama City; the destination is the end of the road
I had a few days to kill in Panama City, so I rented a bike and did some exploring:
Filling out the paperwork at the Moto Tour Panama booth in the BMW showroom, called "Barvarian Motors" in Panama City
Checking the bike out and loading it up
Lunch in the town of Paraiso
the entrance to gamboa, the panama canal railway train line bridge in the ackground, crossing gatun lake to the prison
Hummingbirds at Gamboa
The view of the jungle from a canopy tower at gamboa
Heading out of Panama City towards El Valle
Many roads leading into the mountains turn from pavement to paths
The view down to Punta Chame from Chica
The view from Chica
I arrived to the end of the road and found a place to stay. The owner insisted I park on his porch.
The view at night looking northwest
Heading out of Chica in the morning
A nice way to start the day
From this point I could see Punta Chame in the distance, where I ended up in the evening.
I stopped at a market in El Valle de Anton to get some snacks.
Exploring the hills above El Valle
Nice roads heading the back way out of El Valle
I happened upon a spa hotel and stopped for some lunch while the rain passed
A paradise of empty back roads
Back down the mountain to the Beach at Playa Blanca
Then along the coastline until I arrived at the end of Punta Chame
At which point I decided to call it a day.
From the beach looking up towards Chica
Locals fishing at the tip of Punta Chame
Exploring the beach the next day
Taking in the views
And back to via the Panama Canal
Panama Canal near Miraflores Locks
Past Casco Viejo
Back into Panama City
Best BMW dealership ever.

"... a couple of days to kill in Panama City." An enviable predicament! Thanks for the report. Looks like a great place to ride.
