wachs,

I'm glad you enjoyed the report. I assume you are Dave Wachs of Giant Loop. If so, your Coyote bags were the perfect choice for this trip. They served as my checked luggage, and kept my entire kit safe and dry throughout the many kilometers and water crossings. Plus, the Coyote bags mount/dismount quickly and easily, important after a long day of riding.

If you would like to use any of my pictures feel free. I would not hesitate to recommend these bags to anyone, they are the perfect setup for a fly-and-ride adventure.

Thanks,

palla62,

I am happy you enjoyed the ride report. After reading your "Milan to Umbria" I have decided that I must return to Italy. I hope your wife's leg has now healed completely.

Ciao,

Hi Poolman,

Thanks for taking us along with your latest epic ride at the Sacred Valley of Incas. I really enjoyed reading your very detail reports and your spectacular pictures & video clip as well.

The Machu Picchu & Galapagos Islands is on my bucket list and hope to fulfill another dream sometimes soon. I will send you a PM if I need some help...

A Life Adventure!

Man, what a superb RR package: identify a specific region of the world, engage some local support and logistics, and live a major life experience! This is doing it right. And a very engaging RR. Thank you! Great to see some someone from my part of town telling these kinds of stories.

I also had to chuckle - I have the same Castle Streetgear jacket as your friend. I bought it to serve just as my very-hot-DC-area-summer-weight riding jacket, and here I see it tackling sky-scraping altitudes, rain, dirt, rivers, and mad dogs! Nice.

BadWHooper,

Hello neighbor, I am glad you enjoyed the ride report and appreciate your kind words. The trip really surpassed my expectations and I could not have been happier with the route, the bikes, or the outfitter we used. I know Culin was pleased with his Castle jacket as well.

Thanks,

khaitronic,

I'm glad you loved the thread, and what a blessing to inherit a 400 Falcon! I am sure the previous owner will look down upon you with pride as you enjoy the bike.

Cheers,
