Columbia

Thanks Decodant

We are going home to Vancouver to work during the rainy season and will ship the bikes from Panama city to Bogata at the end of September. Sara

Bikes in storage

We were storing the bikes here for the next 5 months, so we drove them into the lot for the official to inspect. Then they will be moved into the bonded warehouse. We will return to arrange shipping at the end of September. They want 100$ per month per bike, which is 40 less per bike then the Tocumen Storage company next door.

Ingrid will check you in and will want to see your passport. Once you enter this area you are technically not supposed to leave.

The official will check the bikes and document any damage or scratches. He will want your passport title. He made his own copies.

Some of the other toys here.

He then hands you the Girag registration paper to take back to the aduana where you started. Inside there is an older lady to process your permit cancellation. She was so excited to get our sticker for her collection.

Then the sad part we had to part with the storage fee. They said we could pay when we came back, but we decided to pay now as we had the fee agreed on and were not sure what they would say in 5 months and we will have to pay for the shipping then too.

With the bikes stored and unloaded we have our stuff to head home.

There are only two airport hotels near Tocumen and wow they are not cheap, but they are nice. We stayed at the Riande which was very chic.

Home to work for the summer

Thanks to all who have followed our RR this far! We are headed home to Vancouver for the summer to work. We will ship the bikes to Columbia at the end of September. We will post our one year gear reviews soon. See you in October for the continuation of our RR.

good news about the bikes

We got a nice email from Claudia and Ingo from Switzerland. They had arrived at Girag to pick up their bikes and they sent us an email and a photo to let us know our bikes are safe and sound. The good part is they might arrive in Vancouver before we head back to fetch our them at the end of September and head to Columbia.

Cool!

It must be a good feeling to get confirmation that your bikes are fine. Looking forward to reading more as you get time to post.

Great RR.

Very intrigued to know this man's story with his dogs:

This rider was travelling with two german shepherds in his side car.

Dogs in a sidecar

The bike was stopped at the same gas bar we were at. We looked around for the owner, but he never appeared. His set up a perfect example of the unique local characters you see in the Yukon and Alaska. Sara

We saw this in the window of a framing shop on Broadway in Vancouver.

Maybe the two German Shepherds were traveling independently?

I used to fly over Alaska coming home to Europe from The Far East back in the day when Russia was the Soviet Union and had restricted air space. The plane used to stop over in Anchorage and it was just amazing. I would loved to ride that part of the world one day.

Thank you again for the inspiring ride report, and best wishes.

Thanks

It is stunning in Alaska and the Yukon! We did not want to get too close to the dogs in case they were guard dogs! Sara
