Bike is at the dealership in Lima. Hope to have some news soon.
Found a Starbucks. Now I’m just missing a BMW
Antenna ring, I am guessing. I pack a spare on (very) long rides! Keep us posted, wonderful report!
It's certainly a suspect. But BMW says nothing is wrong and the bike is ready. Awesome.
Stay out of the rain.
Great reports and shots, George. Im keeping up with you again, feeling better every day. Use your sun screen.
I'd insist they change antenna ring.
Even if they won't under warranty and you have to pay you'll be money ahead if and when it finally locks up in the middle of nowhere.
Then carry your original as a spare.
Had a friend who's had same issue in Dawson City, YT and had to be hauled to Anchorage, AK.
Just the tow bill was $3000 not to mention rental car and personal expenses, which where thankfully covered by BMW.
No way to get compensation for stress and lost time out of vacation.
The riding in Peru doesn't disappoint. We rode up to 15,700ft in elevation where we were snowed on while looking at glaciers and down to sea level to find surfer towns. Canon del Pato (before my iphone gave up).
I was looking forward to the coast after freezing in the mountains but what I found wasn't too appealing. Dirty, dusty towns and a straight road towards Lima, lined with piles of garbage and rubble. But there is a certain Star Wars vibe to it.
Hitchhikers Backpackers Hostel. Nice place with six bikers and two overlanders here. Not bad folks to spend a few days with.
Looks moist in Lima
Ha Ha, BMW sells now Hair dryers! Don´t leave without!
we had some awesome rides... and my clutch is (hopefully!) fixed....
Ps thats the mud part....:
Miraflores district of Lima has a very Santa Monica feel to it. Nice restaurants, nice hostels and nice malacon
Pretty cool... I will subscribe so I can read about your adventure...
Try stretching a condom over the fob and antenna ring to keep them dry. Just a thought. Those wet dirt roads look gnarly—fun on a real dirt bike, but less so on a 600 pounder. I still can't get over all you've done and seen on this trip. I go to work and come home and the next thing I know you're in another country. Epic.
Did you get to Medellín yet? I live there if you need any tips
Hey George nice adventure bike trip, I live in Canada and I am in Colombia visiting my family and this morning just saw your post and I read the whole 31 pages, you are doing my dream bucket list, I didn’t see you came to the coast where I am (Barranquilla) but if you come back and pass by here I will be a pleasure to offer you some hospitality! I am here until January. Keep riding bud and enjoy your adventure trip!
Way south now in Peru. But I am traveling with a guy from Medellín and a girl from Bogota!
