Up the coast to montanita

We took the new bike for an overnighter up the coast to Montanita as I am trying to get 1000K on the odo so I can get the 1st scheduled maintenance done. The bike came with a 1 year or 12,000km warranty and the work must be done by the authorized mechanic(I’ll take pics of his “shop”, its classic 3rd world). Its also free, well included in the purchase price!

Playa Rosada




We then followed the coast up a nice graded dirt road to Ayangue for lunch.

After lunch it was a quick run up to Montanita


We went to visit Tio Poeta and have some pina coladas


Saw a good live reggae band, drank a bunch of beers, woke up a little hungover and since my wife had to work we headed home without getting to do any more side trips. There is a neat waterfall near montanita though its probably pretty dry right now as well as some great beaches up the coast.
We stopped here for the sole reason that it’s a friggin ship. Apparently food on Spanish Galeons is expensive so we just grabbed a beer.

I had not noticed that my helmet is from a well named company.


You can see the high rises of Salinas through the haze


Put nearly 200 kms on the bike and used just under 2 gallons of fuel at 2.10$ a gallon
This little 200cc china bike really rides pretty nice with the 2 of us on there and gets up to 80 kph pretty well.

Thanks for sharing this. I was in Montanita almost exactly 8 years ago. I don't recall any galleons there at that time, must be recent? The wiring looks the same as I remember.
