    Guatrider: I tried sending you a pm but I believe it failed. If you send me one perhaps I can respond to it.
    Did some great riding today , it felt good to be back on the bikes.

    We are really enjoying our time here. We had an excellent dinner & discussion with Guatrider & Mrs Guatrider last night. Today he took me for a short guided tour of the hillside and scenic areas.[​IMG]

    No we didn't go to the Hostel, but we did cook some sausages on the campstove last night. This morning we took both 250 cc bikes on the hillside for a morning ride.

    The Kawa 650 he rode yesterday was backfiring a lot during engine braking.

    What's the current situation with leaving a bike in Guate for up to 12 months, while the owner returns home (i.e. leaves the country)?

    Thanks

    Our paper said 90 days and I believe if you cancel it, rather than suspend it on exit, you must wait 90 days before you can get another one. Not 100% sure on that.
