SSinVzla spotted at the Shamrock on a brand spanking new 990R. He was traveling with good Cuban cigars and excellent Venezuelan Rum!





The best part is that he shared those cigars with myself and throttlemeister, and gave me that bottle of rum for my birthday!

^^I love that pic of Vinnie, SS and me, I feel like a real bad ass motorbike rider here


During my time at the Shamrock I met a Frenchman on a XT Yamaha on a quick RTW trip, I forget the good fella's name here:


He carried stickers too, his is the big one with his .fr website and also notice the stickers from the guys on the really old European bikes that went around a couple years back. This door at the Shamrock is getting stickered up


While hanging out at the Shamrock Adam, Vincent, and myself got our third degree to Pablo Escobar through this nice guy named Marino Castillo who was a civil engineer in Colombia and acquaintance of Escobar who was asked to design Pablo's private prison but politely declined the offer


Then there was the good soul Joe from England who's been on some neat rides around the world, he's currently working his way up North now:


Be on the lookout for this bike and rider, good people


When at the Shamrock, got to watch out for these two killer guard dogs too


And here's Dennis the good Dutch guy running the bar for Albert, along with one of the more longterm guests Vinnie:


This is a fun place to be, its too easy to get stuck here for a long time


Viva ColombiaI like it alot

What concrete? I dont see any concrete. Aint that right Al?

I was going to head to the Shamrock again this week, but just got the word that the road from Bogota to Medellin is now closed indefinitely. I will call the police tonight and see about alternate routes. I rode so much knee deep mud the last week that I really dont feel like doing any more of those alternate routes.

Also I was stuck between two landslides for a day as well. Thats lots of fun too.
