Hall Sensor, the cup that rotates around the sensor and a belt. The cup was installed in-correctly in Mexico resulting in a $12 part taking out a $340 part, plus the $22 belt.

Here is the SPOT link someone ask me for:

Can a phone with Tigo minutes bought in Guatemala be used in El Salvador?

I crossed over into Costa Rica today. A five hour or so border crossing! This is my first time in Costa Rica. This makes seven countries so far on this trip. I should cross over into Panama within the week. Depending on available time, I may hit Belize on the way home.

Cool!! My dad loved Costa Rica and a couple of my old bikes ended up there.

Lots to see. Very diverse flora and fauna.

He spent a lot of time there for a decade or so. Really enjoyed the Guanacaste, Pacific coast and the volcano area above Alajuela. Wanted to rent a house there.

Enjoy yourself.

I am in San Jose, Costa Rica and will head toward the Panama border today. I will probably stop short of the border and cross Sunday.
