Thoroughly enjoyed seeing your ride through Bolivia. The landscape is so different. What a great experience. I hope your friend that required surgury is all right.

Holy Crap Batman!! What a great report. Extremely well done and interesting, combining challenging riding and the culture. You made my top 3, meaning I am hoping to follow in your footsteps. Have thought about Bolivia/Patagonia as a tour and you gave me some great feel for Bolivia.

What an interesting report. I've thoroughly enjoyed it so far. I notice that the DR650's have stock tanks. What were the arrangements with gas? Did you fuel from the chase trucks alot, or did you find gas other places? How many in the group are running out and buying DR650's when they get home? Did most like the bikes?? thanks for reporting

Great report, many thanks.

Cuppla questions:

1) Why did the shoe shine boys have their faces covered ?

2) Why are gates across the road leading into the towns ?

3) How is your injured rider holding up ? ( I may have missed something)

Yup, I remember the guys in La Paz in the vans barking out something at the was great....

What an awesome ride you guys are having. Bolivia is fantastic.

Thanx for the report. I know how much work it takes while on vacation.
