    Damn, I just came back from Medellin, probably passed by your pub at least a couple of times. Can't wait to go back... how do you reckon is the ride from NYC?

    Any idea of when the truckies release their road hold, was it a one dayer or more set for tomorrow?, most here are just guessing.

    Went for a local nice ride today so not bord :clap

    We came, we saw, we drunk, we took photos but failed on the moto front.

    When trying to get motophoto bloody cages were cramming the small street thus nomotophoto.

    From Left to right, Oliver, Ellen, me (Heather below) and Al.

    :scratch Juan Valderrama, I am not sure I understand your point? This is overland biker forum, not Medellin or local forum and since major of members are not from Medellin, this is a correct invitation. If you are from Bogota and ride motorcycle then you are invited to ride all the way from Bogota to Medellin and visit the pub!

    If you are looking for a local invitation, please visit local advertising such as magazine, flyer, and Facebook as you will find many special promotion weekly. :thumb

    I've been there. Great place and great people.

    On my side of the world, me and my local friends we have helped many, many long range motorcycle riders with housing, friendship, routes, advice and mechanics and we always recomend your pub.

    I understand what you mean, but being a bit more abstract: Overland? What is overland? These days there are no borders, only corporations....

    I was just pulling your leg. Thanks for the invite.

    I think my Harley Riding friend is correct but since I seen this post I might stop in for a half-N-half as my bike is being shipped to Colon in May 2015. I have my extreme dream of a life time trip planned from Tierra Del Fuego to Prodhoe bay, Alaska! On a ROAD KING BABY! LOL! Are the first three beers free if me and my cousin show up?

    HAPPY ANNIVERSARY ON MY 100 POST!

    Gabeslaw,

    I realized that Juan was being sarcasm :norton

    Anyway.. if you are traveling slooowly from Colon to Ushusia with no timeline for deadline to be home.. maybe we will meet up.. I am planning to leave in May 2015 from NC up to Alaska and then down to Argentina..

    Otherwise, I look forward to your riding report and you should stop by Buster's British pub and have a good time.. I'd like to suggest a week in Medellin.. then Al can provide some good routes before riding down to Cali and south.

    Ride safe!
