I was in Brazil on business and found myself with a free weekend in Porto Alegre. Not being a soccer fan, I had to figure out a way to get out of Dodge before the fans descended. I remembered AEK from this forum and emailed Flavio middle of the week to see if he could rent me a bike. He showed up Friday night with a brand new BMW 800GS Adventure, helmet, GPS and even rain suit in my size! Two days later I had out on 1400kms and saw awesome beaches, twisty roads and ate way too much Brazilian barbecue. Can't say enough positive things about these guys. friendly, professional and extremely knowledgeable about the region. I'll be back soon. Probably when the temps in Winnipeg hit minus 30 again..... Anyone else from Santa Catarina?
