Finally got my bike back

So after an official letter from the ambassador(israel)
That was asking to help rush the process.
Getting the title sent from ny, wait for them
To approve it, wait, more wait, hire someone
To deal with custom(you are not allowed to)
I got my bike back.
22 days of hating anything costarican
When I went to pick it up the bike was not
Running.
It looked like they rode it from the border
To limon and when the fuel light came on
They just laid it flat on the back of their pickup.
I had to jump start it, the engine was off.
And it was throwing gas from the hose under
The bike.
So had to take it apart when I opened it
I realized there was only about a liter left
On the right tank and the right one was empty
The whole right side was covered with red
Marks from a gasoline spill.
Cleaned the carb and tighten a hose.
So it was stressful and aggravating.
Left Costa Rica not sure if I will ever come back.
