Colombia Libre!Medellin!!! 2009

So Here I am,a Scottish guy living in Colombia and loving it!!!
Then I,m thinking I,m having such a great time why would I want to lt others in on it!!!
Well here,s the story Colombia and the Colombians have made me feel more at home than possibly any other time in my life.So I think lets get my two favorite things together Colombia and motorcycles.
I put out a few feelers around these parts and got fair amount of interest in a motorcycle meet'up without really trying.I sent out a few PM,s and got myself some people interested in doing what they can.
Great so far!!
I think we all want this to be a truly international event with folks from Canada to Argentina and all points in between.
The reason for Cartagena is it,s about midway between the continents and is a great place to visit anyway with the Walled city and surrounded by beaches,Santa Martha etc
It,ll be in November,Why! because thats about the time the majority of folks going south to Tierra del Fuego pass by.
Get the sailboats from Panama straight there!!!
Finally for the moment I just talked to Ktm Medellin and will be talking to Bmw Medellin.
I got a very enthusiastic responce from KTM and I expect the same from BMW.
I hope some of you can make it and we can all do our little bit to change the image of a country and a people that deserve better.

I assure you that we are in! However due to the Hostel and my job teaching, it will be nice to know well in advance. Can we help in any way?

OK, Albert - could we get some more details from your weary mind posted?

Most importantly the DATE and let the promotion begin

for now

I,m waiting for the Christmas,New year stuff to pass by and at the moment I,m in Quito taking care of business.
I,ll be back in town on the 5th of Jan and then I,ll be sending out some mails to people who,ve shown an interest in helping with the international part.
I,ve also got to get in touch with Mauricio at Ruta 40,but I have talked to Ktm and they are very interested.
I,m also going to look into some big time sponsors like Juan Valdez.If you boys have any other suggestions let me know.
Mike I,ll give you a ring in the new year and Lodging we need to get together for a beer on the 6th or so.
Also any international biking organisations in Europe,We need contacts!!!

Let me know on the Juan Valdez progress. If you're in Quito, you've probably seen that they've opened several shops here and are probably looking to promote. If you put something together with them from Colombia, I'm sure it will be easier to get the reps for JV here to jump on board.

I've been wanting, all my life, to be a free-lance adventure writer. I'll send some queries to the motorcycle rags, and maybe they'll let me write something.
