I'm back in the states now, Telluride actually, and figured it was time to post some of the pics of my last year riding down in Costa Rica. This bike started it's life as a stock 2006 SMR450 that I bought used while living in Santa Monica (ugh). So I raced it out a bit for canyons and then a year later I departed LA and imported the bike to CR, but not before I converted it to a ADV ready TE style 450. Also, import fees suck! I ride almost entirely solo so pics usually do not have me on the bike unless I was doing a two-up ride. There are a LOT of river crossings during the wet season that I simply couldn't get pics of due to riding solo, or having to rush so that the rain storms didn't strand me in canyons with rising water levels (no time for pics). So most of these pics are of pleasant non-stormy rides, but those are fun too. I'm not going to annotate most of the pics but if anyone wants to know a location on a specific photo feel free to ask. Riding in Costa Rica is a blast - and the bike is still there for when I go back later in the year. More to follow once the second folder syncs. I have some nice pics of the Samara to Santa Teresa "beach highway" in the next set.
