After 8 years of planning and many delays the wife and I should be in Costa Rica in October. I've spent many hours on these forums in anticipation of the great rides ahead of me. If anyone would like to show me some good rides, I should have a bike by December. (probably a Tornado 250). If your passing through CR on a long trip let me know and I'll meet you for a ridealong and a beer. I'll be in the Southern Pacific zone and hopefully stay in that area. I'm just gonna keep blabbing now just cuz I'm pumped about it. Never really done any ADV riding. I love dirt biking but have lost so many riding areas, got tired of street riding in Alberta on straight roads with cops and speed traps everywhere. I go to B.C. every year just to hit some corners. Looking forward to some longer trips into Nicaragua and Panama. Before long I should have some good rides and amazing destinations of my own I can share.
