Karl Johan from Denmark and his XT660R:
Thats where you place our Casa Blanca sticker
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.
Alright Jeff no problem, see you in a couple of weeks. I'll tell Karl to contact you, his having he's rack welded and painted, plus going on the group ride with me Sunday!
Anton heading north:
Charles and Ben finally made it down here after seeing my pictures on ADV rider for more than a year. Managed to hook them up with some free dirt tires:
Alisa was stuffed in a full 10 bed dorm, but took it like a boy scout during camp:
Second timer from Russia with love:
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!
Martin bought he's bike here from a Danish rider Bo, spend some days transferring money, running over the bike and getting ready to explore SA:
Jene and J.D on there second leg of their travels, they are now storing their bikes here while back in the states for some month, trip to be continued later:
Mike, up in San Gil now. The german needs to overhaul the honda in Medellin. (New main shaft and bearings.) See you in a couple weeks.
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!
Good to know. Might want to to a couple things to the Freewind when I get there.
Brazilian rider with his customized pizza delivery box:dg
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)
I'd have to ask around. What do you need and I'll find out?
Canadian Mike and his KTM before we go to Cali airport to ship the bike to Miami:
The breakfast bike loaded with what ever you want to eat while waiting for anti-narcotic police to search the bike:
Mike's bike ready to be loaded on to the cargo plane:
Was it a requirement to wrap the bike in cardboard or did he do it for protection? And how much??? Did he use copa?
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 ;-)
Bridger and Chris from the states:
Daniel from Puerto Rico on his second visit:
Finally my lovely bike crazy daughter Laura:
