A family whose friend witnessed the accident has taken us in off the street. It's Sunday, so they're taking us to the beach today. Tomorrow, we'll make arrangements and figure out what to do. Our best option seems to be to salvage the parts from the bike and head back to Canada and try to figure out if we can continue the trip somehow.

We're going to continue to post here and try to get caught up on all the blogging. Hopefully, our final post will not end here, in El Salvador. We've had such an amazing trip so far, we met so many awesome people, and we don't want it to end here.

We both want to thank John Eamon for everything. He has helped us out tremendously, and we both are indebted to him. Thank you, John, for all your help and concern.
Good to hear that you guys are OK.. Sorry for the bike:(
Wouldn't it be possible to trade in the bake as is for a smaller/older one, and continue the trip with that?
