He may even be able to organize delivery to Antigua if you are desperate! (like me )

Medellin is great!
Heya Trevor

Our rear will get us to Bogota where we have a full new set of heidis going on.

Front will get us to Antigua but it will be extremely shot when we arrive.

The contact in Bogota is

Gonzalo Bueno
MFG Ltda
Calle 94A No. 60-30
Bogota, DC

Tels. (571) 611 0155
Cel: 315 394 4989
mail: felgon@etb.net.co

In Semuc Champey for coupla days, due to tire restriction we will be heading to Antigua then up to Xela to school up.

Cheers for the pics too .... looking forward to get into that shop, was it a good setup?, will need to do valve shim at + or - Medellin.

Shop looks great, and gets good reviews from the owner of the Shamrock pub just near here - he has a 990 Adventure and a Duke super moto. Told him I'd point you in his direction for a Guinness and some KTM BS!

PS Loving Colombia!

I agree totally! Epic picture.

My friends looking over my shoulder think it is fake... or an illustration?

Excellent stuff guys. Rather prolific too considering the difficulties. I often struggle to keep up with your posts not being on holiday myself. ;-) Love the beaches and the inverted hammock (always happens when i try to mount the things too) Just did a training day with Adventure Trailrides in Chch. Turns out you can teach an old dog new tricks. 90 deg turns and wheelies-who would have thought. Keep up the good "work" Hope your rubber lasts the distance (that's sounds a bit rude eh?) Cheers.

Just checked your profile. Interesting we both had the Suzi 550, RD350 and z1000 in the past before embracing the truth in the form of KTM

.... why... don't you use them

Np pressure to put on a heidi but for adventure touring I rate them as one of the best....but I was wrong once back in 1986 I think it was.

Heya mate

Ellen is stoked and yes it genuinely is a photo with no work done, right place right time ... there are several others in the album too.

Heya Mark

Great to hear from you mate and that you ARE learning new tricks ... sorted doing a rolling stoppie on the 8 hundy yet ... no pressure

Rubber made it, right down to the carcass but no strands .... not a lot left now.
