    Yup, those were the guys I saw going to Popayan. The tires on top of the bike was the give away.

    I left another helmet at your place. I'll pick it up on the way back through. Should be bringing a German on a Africa Twin too. Maybe a couple others in tow...

    Karl, PM me your route north, we may be able to meet again somewhere.

    We had WAY too much fun in Cali. Salsa dancing until 5 in the morning. Mike found us some race take-offs for free for our use in Bolivia. We really enjoyed our stay at Casa Blanca and it was so cool to actually BE there after seeing these pictures for over a year now. Thanks for everything, Mike!

    Great you're both welcome here anytime. By the way I have just opened a work shop on my parking compound. The mechanic is Santiago who used to work for BMW and later as the workshop manager for Suzuki. He knows what he's doing and work on most bikes at very favorable prices!

    Micha is putting new cam chains and rocker arms in his Africa Twin. Does the Servi Honda shop down there stock any old Honda parts? (1996)

    No unfortunately the cargo plane arrived Friday night, so we where not able to be there for the strapping down the bike on the pallet, so the shipping agent thought it was best to pack it well:huh
    Total price Cali-Miami including shipping agent, transport to airport, a mechanic to go with us in the cargo terminal (a requirement now from anti-narcotic police, because they found cocaine in the tank of two harley's) and the flight = U$1600 dollars with Centurium. But its cheaper with Arrow Airline U$1400 but they only fly once a week, which would mean Mike missed Daytona bike week ;-)
