Howdy there, I post as SanDiegoLand on the V-Strom forums, but thought my Costa Rica pics would be more appropriate here as I use a Honda NX4 Falcon for work down there. I survey for and inspect installations of telecommunications equipment and actually took up riding recently (8 months and 14,000 miles ago) to get better access to the mountain and jungle areas. Here's a few pics from recent days: Pura Vida The Falcon in action (the other vehicles are parked and the occupants used the footbridge) Loving the twisties with my Cortech soft tailbag (under raincover and bungee net) and Wolfman tank panniers. Very few folks do ATGATT in Costa Rica, it's too hot, but I drink a lot of water and I don't mind the stink that comes from my own sweat (as long as I keep moving!) Some tourists were feeding this critter as we drove by, a no-no!! Sometimes the roads are clear, sometimes they are too much for our combo tires. This guy spotted me trying to scout a way through a construction zone (some very high end housing development) and waved me over. He scraped off a path that had washed out in the recent rains and off we continued. It's just that easy (almost never!!) ...and off we go to work! See the towers in the distance?
