I see. Part of the reason I was eventually thinking about getting a bigger bike are countries like Argentina in which I'm going to have to thousands of kilometers on straight highways in order to reach Tierra del Fuego, for example. However, I can definitely imagine that more than 300-400 isn't necessary in Colombia, or even Peru for instance. But then again, you guys know better so I guess I will follow your recommandation and get the XRE 300 as I originally planned. Very nice pics btw, they scream of adventure hahaha And thank you for the helping offer, I will definitely keep it in mind in case I need it. For now, JuliusR is being a of a great help to me in Bogota as he's helping me through the whole process The only thing he can't help is choosing for me, that's why I'm here, considering all the different possibilities I have before making a decision.
