And you thought there was no justice in Bolivia?

Hahaha maybe you need to set out a few more 'decoys' for those slimey bastards.

It reminds me of how a few years back here in Picton, there was a spate of thefts of portable fuel tanks out of the boats parked in the marina.
I even chained mine into the boat and had the chain cut and two tanks taken.

So next time I left a tank in the boat, this old rusty thing, full of petrol, diesel, sand, salt water, a bit of mud and sure enough, somebody stole it and I never had a tank taken again.

Awesome pics as always guys, sorry to hear about the bad things but, I'm sure they'll make funny stories when you look back at what you have done. Listening to those stories in you kiwi accent will make them even funnier if the listener is able of understand anything. You better leave Ellen do the talking

GO KIWIS !!!

Heya Mike

Thanks man, pretty cool backdrop to work with makes it easy although the fog was making unusual light so the camera struggled a bit.

Yeah that piss bottle will get him .... bastids deserve any shit they get.

Enjoying your RR to mate, cool places you guys are at.

Cheers Andi

Heya Te Hopo

Yeah man, it would be great to be a fly on the wall if these guys suffer

Good trick you did mate, best thing to do really when you want to defend your stuff is to make it so un-worth their while and trouble is if some dodgy bastid wants something they will get it eh

Caranarvi To San Aborje

Wanting to gas up we discovered there was no gas in town or as it would turn out none of the next towns for 200 km and we already had 200 km on the clock, thankfully we both had good capacity

Getting away at 9.30 am they said 6 hours, sweet that is a nice ride time.

The first part was good, then it got progressively worse, then very then very wet and muddy with roadworks stifling progress every 10 - 15 km with up to 1 hours waits.

With rock falls across the road they had heavy artillery clearing rocks off the road all the time costing us time, Plan B was discussed about camping somewhere as progress was extremely slow.

Yes this is a WTF discussion



Then it really caved in, serious road works couple with serious mud and truck jams blocking the road, we were too far into it to turn back as we would not have enough gas so we stuck to Plan A and continued from one blockage to another and ruts deep enough that our cases hit the ground at times.





Gail was also hit by an asshole truck driver, Gail was completely stopped and the truck driver just drove into him from a few meters away on flat ground, luckily damage was minimal



I was very hard work to be fare and of course we were going down from 4680 meters to 188 meters so a huge elevational drop and the Amazon jungle heat with it, two days ago we were freezing and now we are sweating like a pig.

Things were improving





It is about 38 degrees C and sticky here, 100.4 F translated to USA language



The last part of the road had huge potholes and mud sinkholes although flat, we made it into San Borje just on 6 pm very dirty and very tired, low on gas, no food or water left....what a great day

San Aborje To Trinidad

235 km, flat, easy what can possibly go wrong.

First up, gas up ... join the line





Well, today is Sunday, last Sunday it rained BIG time and blew a lot of the road out, they had half a years rain in one day and it was evident with heavy trucks and buses damaging the road, in places the ground was as soft as Harley rider and the truck had created ruts that would see our cases do bulldozing.

After waiting for an hour to get gas we were finally on our way, our journey taking 7 hours to do the 235 km, so down to first gear trying to negotiate mud and and other parts we actually found and used 6th gear.

This was common theme for the day



Some good spots, very shorts lived



A short shadow stop



We had two river crossings today, both on barges and their entry and exit ramps were a little unusual creating a bit of interest.





HMS Bolivia



Nice glide across the river



Today seemed to be national shift your cattle day



Arriving in Trinidad we arrived for the world cup final between Argentina and Germany, the main square had a BIG screen ..... 5 meters x 3 meters and most of the town was watching, we rode between them and and the screen so it was kinda funny, wasn’t long and Germany scored the goal that confirmed their title.

An icecream was had as it was 38 degrees C and accommodation was sorted.

The evening settled in and we sat and had tea (dinner) and watched hundred of motos go by again and again, chicas calientes riding past as well ... boys had to behave!!!

All in all Trinidad certainly not a tourist trap we felt more welcomed here than anywhere else in Bolivia, this really is the cool place at the end of what can be called the Trans Bolivian Trail via Ruta 3.

We stayed two night here because it was nice

Trinadad To Santa Cruz

Trinidad, a surprise of niceness, people we differing in colour and attitude which was refreshing surprise.

Although no tourist trap it was a great place to stay and relax a day after wrestling mud and bog for three solid days.

The owners wife had a wee daughter who took kindly to the white faces, the white face that looked like me played soccer (kid style) and she could not get enough so it was a very refreshing thing to be welcomed as equal.



Maya and Gails BMW tucked up safely



Our interesting neighbour from Brasil making jewelery, he was very good at it too making nice stuff.



The wee girl couldn't wait to get her photo on Gails bike, he grin giving us all a cool as smile to take with us on our ride



Gail on his R1200GS, very nice piece of kit



We all enjoyed our tarseal cruze, Maya achieving 4.5 liters / 100 km or 51.69 mpg, very happy with that.

Santa Cruz, Gail needed a coupla things fixed and we were looking for our stator solution so that was destination.

More later

Was good fun for sure and kept us on our toes
