    Greetings Inmates,

    Just pulled into Panama City, Panama and need a shop to straighten out a bent luggage rack on a DR650. Anybody know of a place here in Panama City or somebody that can assist me in finding a place? All help is appreciated!

    Muchas Gracias,
    Chris

    Try DaKao/Hero. The owners are English/Spanish speaking Vietnamese. They sell Hero motorcycles and if they can't help they may know who can. Just left Panama City yesterday.

    I had thought of that, but have had very mixed results in the past (i.e. - ended up in a worse situation than I started off). So I figured why not hit up any locals that are on the forums or people who have been here and had good results.

    Did you get this sorted out?
    The Suzuki dealership on Calle 50 (next to the BMW dealer) seems very handy but if you strike out, I can probably help you find the right person. PM me.
