Hi,

Yeah, we've been really lucky to have Suzuki on board. They have been awesome for us to date. The main problem we have with relying on them in this situation is the time involved in waiting for parts to be sent from the UK and then to clear the Colombian customs. We had a few issues when we were in Russia and Russian customs held on to a parcel they sent us for weeks. Colombia is an awesome place but we were hoping to be at the bottom of Argentina before xmas. If we can't source the parts locally then we will lean on Suzuki again but right now for us, time is more important than the money it would cost us to buy the parts locally.

Fingers crossed.
