Thanks pdxbrit! If I come that way I'll drop you aline for sure...thanks!
No his trip is the reality. Anything else is just dreaming of the next trip.
Yep... But, it will be nice to be home for a bit to catch up with friends and family. I'm also looking forward to planning for the next adventure...I think an RTW is next on my list!
Day 299 - 300 Bogota, Colombia 06/16 - 17/11 Mileage: 0
I met the Lyncargo representative at the airfreight terminal at 8:30am along with a handler from the airline, but not before making a D&D run!
I must be getting closer to home....
.....though the signs were still in Spanish...
The national police were also there and they went through my bag and side cases, presumably looking for drugs or other contraband. They even made me start the bike while one of the officers had his nose in my tailpipe
.whatever floats your boat, fella! I tried to take a picture of him but he gave me the wave off which was too bad
.it would have been a funny picture. So with that complete and signatures all around, the bike was cleared for export.
That done I made my way back to the hotel where I hunkered down to update the blog which was now over 2 weeks behind way back in Manaus, Brazil! That night I walked around downtown Bogotá and had the best hotdog
It goes like this....put onions on the grill, smothered in ketchup, mustard and mayo, then put a big fat hotdog in a bun huge bun, cover it with said grilled onions, then a healthy (or unhealthy as the case me be) layer of crushed potato chips, then 3 more unidentified sauces, followed by diced tomatoes and relish, smother it with a big layer of mozzarella, steam it for a minute to melt the cheese, then top the whole thing off with pineapple sauce. I didn't make it up folks...that 's just how I watched it being made!
The following day was more of the same
walked around the downtown, more writing and updating the blog,...
The police here ride Suzuki V-Strom650's...pretty cool!

Yep, I ordered a new tail light lense from them and had them swap out the rear tire with one I had waiting for me in Miami...
That tail light hack is an SS in Vzla classic for sure!
Thanks sonnyboy! I hope to be reading the RR of your big ride one day!
Hell of a ride amigo, you done good! One of the best Americas RR's I have read for sure, you did a fantastic job keeping up the RR as well.
Thanks bro! I calculated that if I put the amount of hours I put into the blog/RR into riding the motorcycle...I'd have been home 3 months before I left....
You've got the Western Hemisphere taken care of, buddy. What next? Oz?? Africa?? Asia?? Europe?? ANTARCTICA?!
I think a round the world ride is the next "big" trip... Hopefully I can put that together inthe next year or two....
