I too love it when a plan comes together. Boxer Metal rocked on getting the parts in house and packed like a champ. Once the parts got here, it was simply a matter of slapping my name on it for checking in at the airport.
customs bought the line of crap that i gave them about the parts being for a 1979 suzuki gs 750, and accepted the prices i made up. no taxes due.
Byron1 and his better half made it to my house in Managua without any mishaps and surprisingly, the google map i concocted for them actually worked (pats self on back)!
getting to work removing his custom panniers.
yes, that's a tire and iron, and yes, he used it in removing the panniers!
a bit later on, enjoying some chicken, beer and then rum
sorry about the red-eye!
all loaded and ready to be back on the road (with yet another concocted google map with directions to the border...which worked!)
Via con dios my new friends. See you in Blighty!
