The next morning the moto would not run. Three days and it would not run, so it was hauled 120 miles to Guatemala City to the BMW Motorcycle Dealership.

BTW, I waited over two weeks in south Mexico for my friend Hector from Lazaro Cardenas, Mexico. Ultimately he was not able to get away due to to a serious illness in the family of one of his key employees. That is OK, we will re-schedule it in the future.

The moto spent nine days in the Guatemala Stealership. It ended with them having me sign a form that said they could not find the problem and that I was taking it under my own responsibility. It was not a pleasant experience you can read about it here:

The moto ran the entire time it was at the dealership. They thought it was a bad wire somewhere. I decided to ride in a northerly direction for a few days to see how it acted. Maybe they fixed something they didn't know they fixed. So I headed to Antigua.
