Here's the hitch, are we going to run into any trouble because our bike is here in the country when we return back to the states? We'd only be gone for a couple of weeks and we'd still be well inside both our toursit visa (still 2.5 months left) and our vehicle permit/insurance (the same amount of time left).

Also do we have to re-pay to get a tourist visa again or can we exit and reenter with our current one? I know it's not expensive but it'd be nice to avoid the fee since we haven't used up our current visa yet.

i could be totaly wrong,
but i think only a fm3 allows multiple exit & reentry.
a fmt requires turning in/canceling and getting a new one when back for the time left on your 180 days.
if you went into say guat. and back on land you could fake it, but the flying is much more controlled.
