Antigua is a 500 year old city and is a major tourist attraction. I don't normally spend time in tourist areas, but this one does seem a bit different for some reason.

It was not a comfortable ride with steel wheels on the Cobble stone streets!

This girl was amazing twirling the hoop to street musicians.





At this point I had been gone about six weeks.

You should have bought one of those shirts. No one else in Greenville will have one.

Hi Donnie. THese bikes are great until you have problems. NOt cheap to work on. I have been on beemers since 72, and the newer ones are good but when you have problems you need to have money to fix. I rebuild 2 final drives for 200 a piece. Dealer wanted 1400 to rebuild and no guarantee. I can buy a new final drive for fifteen hundred with guarantee. I love beemers. I want a 650 with shaft final drive. saludos Farrell

If I bought one, there still would not be one in Greenville, because I live in Clarksdale.

Donnie, we need to ride again. I have not finished indoctrinating you. We did not always agree but we always had a good ride. Remember Alamos? I know a iron worker there now. saludos amigo

Enjoying the pictures Donnie. Just love the old buildings.
I understand on ride reports, a pain to keep up on the road and too many other things more fun to do when getting home. Plus , don't remember where I was when taking certain pictures.
? Did you miss the KLR when having all the problems with the R11GS?
