Hello John! Didn't seem long ago when we exchanged PM and you advised me to take something smaller like a thumper and well there you go I am on single cylinder BMW. ha! Yes I made it to the colorful river in Colombia on the road that was once infested with guerrilla and I think you were a year early to try taking the road. It probably would have been safer in 2016? I went although I was advised not to because it is still considered conflicted zone. Also, I enjoyed the death road but unfortunately it got me. I'll post report about them shortly.
