    WAY below that :D, we have been staying in 80 Q places .. very basic but all we need, we are on a budget so when we don't blow money on accom we can blow it on tires :clap

    Maybe out of town centro?

    Is Antigua more expensive than other places?

    Cheers Andi

    Saweet

    We will find something I am sure but we might have to raise the bar a little by the sounds of that.

    If you know of anything then let us know.

    Cheers mate

    Have you tried the bike dealerships in Guatemala City ?
    Also a lot of bike shops on 7 Av, Zona 4 around the Torre del Reformador

    I am in Antigua and I have asked several shops including KTM, Yamaha, Honda, Suzuki, VRC, FPR (or so), Held...do not know who else. Maybe better to have it shipped...?

    Haaa that is funny!
    In Boston of all places!
    Cool! Thanks for the info!
    Then please let him know that I would like to buy it! Where does he live? I am close to La Libertad now.
    Two solutions on one day: even found an intake boot surprisingly at motomania Guate today : )
    BTW the border crossing was easy and even fun. Saturday was a good choice ( I took the second one from the west, forgot the name, sth.with a C : ) )
    Cheers
