Stay safe!
Appreciate the offer. Perth is actually one of the places that I would really like to visit...... You'll be hearing from me

Hey Mark, I am still riding along with you in spirit. Thanks for the ride! I sure have enjoyed reading your ride stories and will read/ride along the rest of the way. All the best, Jan

Love the report and congratulations!

Your comment about the guy on the KLR 250 made me giggle, as I could see that being me someday, unless I would just take my Ninja 250 to prove it can be done!

Actually reading your report and a couple others has been helping me realize more and more that where there is a will, there IS a way, and you don't have to have the latest and greatest widget to do it.

Thanks for sharing, perhaps your ride is a gift to yourself, but sharing it makes it a gift to many!

Mark, I'm not sure I'd even walk on that death road.

I am not sure I could ride the Death Road. It looks scary and I worry about trucks coming the other direction.

I get goosebumps just looking at your video

Mark,

Thanks for posting the Bolivia vid, makes me wanna ride it too! Since the new bypass road went in, I've read that you don't have to dodge trucks and buses like in the old days, just landslides and rockfall! Looks like a great bike ride to me.

When you heading north, now that you've run out of land? I head south in 3 weeks.

All the best to ya, Hells

Gracias. It is relatively empty with the bypass road taking the trucks. It was a few car/vans and lots of mountain bicyclist.. ....

It has lots of exposure, but so do many of the roads in the mountains of South America.... Just have to keep focused on the road ahead of you not the 2,000 foot drop just 5-10 feet away

I will be going north for a bit, then east, then west .... way west :)

Road of death

I have always wanted to ride that road. Now looking at your video---- maybe not that had to be intense!
