Pirenopolis-GO, Brazil

Little trip to Pirenópolis city, state of Goiás, Brazil

Two Yamaha XT660 and one Suzuki DL650 Wee Strom!

Warming up the engines:




Talking about the Wee:




Getting off-road:




Up the hill




Staring at the horizon




The road




Going to the waterfall




A beautiful place in the heart of the country








Preparing to go back home




Boooo! :-D




Resting after lunch before taking on the road

You're welcome, GadgetBoy!


This place is close to Goiania City, the start point of Rally dos Sertões!
The rally route goes south of Goiania, while Pirenopolis stays to the north.


Abraços,
Linhares

Picanha is great! I love it!

I don't have more pictures of this trip, but I got some of the one we did last year.

We rode through the same area, but we went further off road.
At the time I had an Yamaha XT660. The other bikes were: Honda NX4 Falcon, Honda XR 250 Tornado and another XT660.





































Abraços,
Linhares

YAY Brasil!!!

My wife is a Paulista, so I've had the chance to visit Brazil a couple of times, but haven't had a chance to ride.

If you're ever in Bahia and want a fun ride, head for Tamburil (not on any map). It's a small village about 25 miles from Banzaê - BA, Brazil down all dirt roads. From Salvador it's around 414 km north.

This past March I visited (the wife's Father lives there now) and an older village resident told me I was the first American to ever visit there. Now that's a damn cool thing.

TK-LA,

it sounds like a cool place to visit. The only city I know from Bahia state is Barreiras. I've been there in 2009. A great place!


Abraços,
Linhares
