    Well I thought this trip it would be fun to share my adventures of riding in Colombia with you all. It did not take long for me to fall in love with Colombia and keep wanting to come back for more. I have been staying in Filandia, Quindio. It's not far from Salento a major tourist destination famous for it's natural beauty, the Cocora Valley and the local cafe farms. The larger cities close to me are Pereira and Armenia. So I hope to share some local riding and some riding exploring beautiful Colombia.

    I leave next Friday from Vancouver and will be stopping in Mexico, Cancun, Bogota and final stop Pereira. Waiting for me is my 2016 Yamaha 660 Tenere.

    Thanks Amphip,

    I'm cleaning the dust off my camera lens now. I'm eager to get out doing my favorite thing, riding and taking pictures.

    Hey Brian, still waiting for your return to Colombia:D I'm thinking April is a good time to return for me as it will be warm back in Vancouver by then. Any ride plans in the future for you?
