After we hang with the penguins we head west on the 25. Man, there is alot of nothing out there. We find a place to set up camp by the river.
In the morning we hit the dirt road to Corcovoado and get our first glimps of the Andes, and out first pass through them.
We come out of the Andes at Villa Santa Lucia and head south.
One for the V-strom'rs
Milena taps on my shoulder telling me that she hears a strange noise. I go to stop and have no back brake.
One of the bolts had come out of the break caliper and the brake pads had come out and destroyed them selves.
Luckly I had a set of new pads that we flew in with, and even more lucky, one of the bolts that hold the crash bars on was a perfect fit. The bolt couldnt be more than a 8th of an inch too long or it would hit the brake disk. I couldnt believe we found one on the bike that fit.
Any bike can be taken off road. The question is; How much fun did you have doing it?
