    Hi all, thanks for the bandwidth!!

    I'm just starting to make plans to tour central america in spring of 2003. I'll be riding an 84 R80gs, leaving from Oakland CA in approx April of next year. I have a ton of questions. . .

    Ideas on friendly places to stay
    Shops where I can get parts of emergency repairs
    Awesome roads or trails to ride not found on RandMcNally or sim
    How to avoid local trouble
    How to avoid vandalism or theft in towns where I'm away from my machine
    Border crossings, legal issues, paperwork and insurance
    I'm sure there's much more . . .

    Thanks, mossman in oakland
