Cool, thank you so much for those great reports and pics!
Nicely informative, specially since I soon will relocate to Panama and I can't wait to venture in those central American countries, knowing already Costa Rica.
But now I'm just a little concern about the bike choice, now that the KLR is considered a "luxury" bike... I love the DR650 (I had 3 of them) but I was thinking of upgrading to the newest KTM 1190 Adv R, to also be able to go down to South America, and maybe more...

So is a small and simple DS better then a maxitrail to discover central America?
Not talking about the bikes capabilities here but the perception of the bike in those countries, and anywhere else by the way.

I've driven for more than 70.000 miles a scooter the PX 125cc up and down the western europe.
In 2008 I bought a Suzuki DR 350, my first motorbike and still my bike.
I prefer littel motorbike and with mine I've driven from italy to Uzbekistan in 2008 and again in 2009 in Central Asia and I think that a simple bike, without electronic is better to travel in this countries: everybody can repair it and help you.
A little bike is handy easy to push when necessary.

Yes, but even with small and little motorbike in those kind of countries your're always an attraction:
in 2012, in Vietnam I rented a very littel motorbike a Yamaha Serow 200 cc, from this picture you can understand hte dimensions of the bike ( I'm tall between 5',6"-5',7" foot)



Nothing special , but, especially in the north , everybody was interested in my tyres, because they are ribbed for off road:really uncommon in Vietnam.
