    Glad to have y'all along! I have been foolwing your European Tour as well! That was a very nice offer! I had one of the first models of SPOTS, but I give it way when I bought the second generation, that fell off the moto today. I guess they are up to third or fourth generations now.

    I do not have the opportunity that you have to make a trip like this, savor every moment with Modesta on the ride.
    I have had a good run 35 yrs con mi media naranja.

    Hello!! Today our tour of these roads that we have past through before. But it is very nice to go back to see the green fields, birds, some lakes. We passed through some light rain, but all was good. We rest when we fill up with gas. It is nice to talk with people while eating. It's something wonderful that is what I like about each adventure ... to see that my country has many very good things !!

    Here is the young Frenchman I told you about yesterday. He left out earlier than us. We passed him and then stopped for lunch and re-passed him when we got back on the road. He rides about 60 miles a day and we have ridden over 200 miles since we last saw him, so it will probably be while before our paths might cross again. Maybe when we start head back toward home from Panama we will pass him somewhere.

    Aquí está el joven francés del que te hablé ayer. Se fue antes que nosotros. Pasamos junto a él y luego nos detuvimos a almorzar y volvimos a pasarlo cuando volvimos a la carretera. Monta alrededor de 60 millas por día y hemos recorrido más de 200 millas desde la última vez que lo vimos, por lo que probablemente sea antes de que nuestros caminos se crucen de nuevo. Tal vez cuando comencemos a regresar a casa desde Panamá lo pasemos a alguna parte.
