    Hi Mike,

    I'm heading to Medellin for a day or two. Will you folks be around?

    I was also wondering if you knew where I could find some tires for the bike. It's a Tiger 800xc


    cheers,
    Clay

    I've been meaning to write something on this for awhile so here goes:

    This place reminds me of a slightly lesser drug lord's old pad:lol3 This is a huge place with an awesome garage and great patio out back, perfect for entertaining. I had the privilage of showing up at the beginning and helped Mike a little shuffle some bikes and move some furniture in his new pad. I had a great time hanging out with Mike and his great family and two beautiful daughters:clap:clap:clap

    The crazy eyed veggie chef:lol3

    I had a wonderful time cooking meat on the grill with Diana as she is a most excellent cook and some wonderful meals where prepared in my short time spent there with Mike and family.

    What a dinner:tb and some nice import Dannish beer I'm thinking:

    One cute Sofia, great natured little kid:

    Later Dan the Man, a parttime expat from Bogota came over for a little riding and we did some more cooking and found out a little problem with the gas grill but got by:

    With a few extra bottles needed:lol3

    Nice little baby pool table out back got some good cutthroat games in over the weekend:freaky

    More great meats served up:

    And oh how I liked the nice garage full of bikes along with my dirty girl:

    There is plenty of crazy good riding nearby just as wild as you care to get:

    Then go to Santa Fe for a nice meal on the square:

    Colombian girls love foreign bikes too:wink:
