Hi MandrillPie, Add Salento to your list of places to visit. I'll be back in Colombia Dec 17th so if you do come to Salento I can help you find a nice place to stay as I have friends from Canada and Colombia who own a few Hotels and Hostels there. Prices for motorcycles new in Colombia are mostly all the same no matter where you buy. Most dealers will take you to Transito to have all the paper work done and do everything else for you. It takes a day or two to get the motorcycle. The dealer delivered my motorcycles right to my place and I have had nothing but good service from Yamaha. It would be smart to buy two of the same motorcycles. Larger cc motorcycles hold their value more. The riding in Colombia is amazing you'll love it.
