How are things Stateside? Missing Brazil much? What brought you to Brazil in the first place?
Hi Will. My wife is a Carioca and when the economy crashed in 2007 it took my business with it so we decided to move to Brazil and live cheaply. I soon found out that to maintain the "gringo" lifestyle I wanted is really expensive in Brazil. When it cost me about $600 USD for tires for my $17,000+ USD DL650 I knew it was time to go back to the states. I miss Brazil a lot and think of the rides I had there. One of the best was with Evandro (Fox) http://www.pisteiros.com.br/profiles...il-sul-offroad
. Beautiful scenery, good and bad weather, great hotel, drinking beer in the sauna after riding the last hour in cold heavy rain. Just a great trip.
A couple of my favorites:
There are so many more.........I need to go back and ride more.
Life is good in the states (with 3 bikes
) but just not the same.
