Still the same fuel prices as when we went the first time in 2005! And yes, it does inspire roaming around.

Diggin' your report.

I have enjoyed this very much !
Thanks !

Loving my Sherpa.
Is the dark colored tank a 4.7 gallon Clarke ? The tank in your Super Sherpa thread post is red.

I have a friend with land in CR and would love to get down to SA too !

Initially I fit the red Clark tank onto the bike . While grinding the rear mount I hit the tank with the 4" angle grinder and compromised the wall thickness in one spot. I decided to order a new tank and got it in a color to match the bike. I believe its 18 Litres.
