The respective bikes have gone to the shops for work and repair. Blondy has spent the whole day at the BMW dealer in Lima, and I understand that Uli's TIGER is getting the thrice over at the new Triumph dealer in Lima. From what I understand, the customer service and focus on repairs is much better at the latter shop....
When the chain came off, it left its mark on the swing arm..if you can see it through the dirt and dust...
This shop reminds me of Panama: all about selling cars, and the bikes are incidental.. In this case, the car de jour is the Mini Cooper.
We helped this poor fellow from down south load 6 brand new F800GS and 2 650's onto his truck and trailer. Apparently he has a touring company 1000 km. south... A few bucks tied up in this load..
Uli and I had been passed by three bikes a few days ago. These three Kuwaiti's doing a RTW in sections showed up while we were waiting, and we had a good gab. They are heading south as well, and they seem well organized, and are travelling light. They have ridden all over the planet, and simply head home to work? to make more money to travel...Nice bunch of guys who are enjoying the world, and documenting their travels..
Their website is www.ospkw.com
There was also a young guy from Houston Texas who showed up, looking for tires:
