Currently trying to talk a good buddy into joining me, but either way will be pretty awesome.
You and I have both been blessed with great wives! What could be a better gift than a motorcycle trip in Peru?
Are you flying to Cusco, or just as far as Lima? If you have Machu Picchu on your agenda I would highly recommend booking the inexpensive 90 minute flight into Cusco and making that the base of your motorcycling operations. There are lots of awesome places to ride and things to see near Cusco, and the city has a much friendlier vibe than Lima in my opinion.
Feel free to PM me if you have any questions about MC rentals, places to stay, things to see, etc.
