Before not after. Been friends for quite a while obviously.
Long enough to know not to play truth or dare with him because in the end, you’d lose!
Thanks CJ. As a result of my tight budget there isn't much food porn, beans, rice and chicken isn't cover material for Home Cooking. Brasil was great for the $5 buffets, but it never occurred to me to grab a shot. Other than that it's road side snacking. I miss the road side taco stands of Mexico etc. they just don't have that in Brasil.
Just checked their website, no launches planned in the near future, may have something to do with the endless thunderstorms in the near future. Buggah.
I tried printing out a green card or two in Belem but the resolution was horrible, my lack of Portuguese didn't help either. Should have saved myself the trouble and bought some beer instead ha ha ha!
You own me a two euro coffee YFF!
No worries, I’ll have euro trash in Troy whip you one up! He'll use his swizzle stick just for you!
And don’t try to bullshit the ADV crowd, if you quit spending all your money at the red light district on the exotics, you’d have enough to buy some real food!
Carry on, sir.
Lovin' the Amazon shore pic's!
The Guiana Space Centre. Operational since 1968, it is particularly suitable as a location for a spaceport as it fulfills the two major geographical requirements of such a site:
it is near the equator, so that less energy is required to maneuver a spacecraft into an equatorial, geostationary orbit, and it has open sea to the east, so that lower stages of rockets and debris from launch failures cannot fall on human habitations.
Some photos that I missed.
Beto, who coordinated the event in Tangara. He literally gave me the shirt off his back
Beto's sweet ride
The entrance to the grounds
There was a bike raffle too
Douglas and Gunther, having lunch at Gunthers house. Even though this has happened to me many times now, it still blows me away that total strangers who talked to me for 10 minutes, would invite me home an serve up an incredible meal. Thank you so much guys!
No idea, we were pretty drunk by then!
Some walk around shots
I wouldn't give up the mower for it, but it sure was comfy
"Custom parking over here guys!"
My interpreter for the weekend, Israel and his beautiful lady
Saturday I was presented an award, a very nice hand made sculpture of a moto, unfortunately it was too large and made of metal. It pained me to leave it behind
Not sure if I posted up Junior from Brokton, MA and the fantastic burger he made for me, wouldn't take a dime either. I met Junior in Vilhena
In Cacoal I met Lady Liberty
Wow, great set of photos! You must’ve been gawking at all of those sweet customs that you know damn well would never fly here in the red tape of ‘Merica. Very cool.
Yep. All those bikes that were imported get another 75% import tagged onto them too. Brasilians pay big money for those bikes!
I was wondering what the import duties were. Yikes. No more complaints about Canada Customs.
Nice, option to mail the moto sculpture home?
I guess with the scoots being so expensive the Vulcan and Star bikes still have the logo on the tank, unlike up here where they are usually painted over or taken off...?
How cool that a person in a wheelchair had a ride!!! Good stuff bud!-D
Definitely! Cool way of reversing the regular sidecar set-up; rider in the seat, passenger on the saddle. Creating a thing like that with relative simple means says so much about a persons attitude in life
That would be my guess as well, just about every bike still has the badges on them. Many people will finance the bikes for seven years, or more!
I was surprised how many riders in Brasil had injuries from a moto crash. Many have a crash story with the scars and missing appendages to show for it.
For De Oppresso Liber, I splurged a couple nights ago, Roquefort cheese burger.
Bravo! Well done, sir!
Pleasing the masses, per usual! Always entertaining.
What’s on your agenda for the remainder of your time in SA? Any other special places or roads you’d like to see before hopping on the boat?
It looks like you are having an awesome adventure. Thanks for keeping us posted . My wife and I were catching up on your posts. Good luck Flaco Loco. See you when you get back.
