Yeah. It seems to have a hard time focusing on the buildings. Now I'm having a hard time focusing also

Glad you guys are doing better.

Heya Noah

Yeah man, not sure that the camera will be any better in Brasil with heat, beaches etc etc, must be teh humidity or something guess we will find out soon enough

Got the stator sorted now too mate, a high powered individual in Santiago is having it sent with another high powered individual and we will have a new factory stator in Paraguay next week.

Stoked beyond belief !!!

Will show you a pic of the magic rewind from Sucre when we swap it over

4.5 l/100 km would be ~52 US mpg or 62 imperial mpg.

Good to see you all enjoying yourselves in Bolivia. How's the food? What is your favorite dish of the three? Chicharoon con choclo, choclo, or Chicharron?

Just awesome riding guys, surviving that mud / road works / fuel situation is part of the wonderful adventure you are having!

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.
Reminds me of a story I heard.A friend told me how his street was having a spate of fuel thefts from parked vehicles.The thieves were syphoning fuel from the tanks.However, in the dark they mistook his camper's waste tank vent with it's screw on cap for the fuel tank.This was evident due to the vomit on the ground below the vent.

Heya tbird649, yeah we worked it on US cos they do that here and we were riding with a yank, so yes extremely good mileage when taking it easy, also says that Maya is in reasonable health I guess

Heya Mike

Yes once off the beaten track we enjoyed it, good ol kiwi spirit comes and has to cos sometimes that element of doubt does surface along with the butterflies.

Cheers Andi

Heya Paul

Classic, love to hear stories like that, payback without trying is cool.

Got a new pisstin so gonna write "urine only" on it to deter any more thieving bastids

Cheers Andi
