For those that are interested in participating in this expedition we need a non-refundable deposit of $1,600 by April 8th. We are still looking for 3 riders. The $1,300 will be used as down payment for a brand new 2008 Yamaha DT 175cc that you'll be riding. If we accomplish the expedition successfully the motorcycle will be named after you. $300 will be use to cover the cost of creating a multimedia presentation of the expedition. Then all other costs will be out of pocket - budget $100/day. The plan is to be 15 days on the road but preferably buy an open airplane ticket. Tickets to Nicaragua should be approx $600-700 depending where you are coming from. I highly recommend buying evacuation insurance which from a place such as MedJetassit that cost approx $85 You'll need to bring all your riding gear, camp gear, water filter etc. We'll just provide a bike, the route and expedition plan. Departure date is still toward the end of April. Once we have the deposit from a couple riders will set up the exact date. all the best, S.
