i'd sell the bikes and get a ticket to a place i could work or atleast find work asap where you are. you don't have enough fuel $.
are you looking for donations from here? others have done it but you need some good writting and great pics plus a paypal button.

I spent $930 to buy the bike and roughly $1,800 on gas, food, liquor and the odd accommodation.

Not too far off from the original 230$!!!!

ahh yes. Sucre, Bolivia

We were desperately looking for some decent moto gear and this was the best we could find. They had some foam padding in the arms, not that that would do anything. Either way Tom and I avoided all bails and Zack fell twice, but without any really damage to himself. His bike was a bit funky after that, but he was fine.

The jackets were 200 Bolivians from a street merchant. Which is roughly $30 I believe. I will keep that jacket till the day I day.

Yes needless to say I had to borrow some cash to make the rest of the trip. All paid off now though and I'm on my way to Germany & Switzerland this fall to do my masters. Pretty excited to do some riding in the Alps!

Good for you, that's exactly what credit is for: allowing adventure for the spririted ones with holes in their pockets (I am pleading guilty as charged as well if you wonder!), that is what Christopher Colombus did in his own way back in the days!

Enjoy the Alps, fantastic riding to be had there as well...
