Hi!


I am in Nicaragua today. In the process of paying a fine for a road infraction that I don't think I committed, but I was not going to pay a bribe! Moto continues to run great!

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.

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.

I betcha they sold you a flaky HES in Mexico, then the guys in Guatemala killed it by reinstalling the rotor wrong. Which I guess by killing it, they did you a favor, so you could get a good sensor and get it fixed right, rather than chasing a ghost problem.

Glad things are running well Donnie!

Liz put me on to this thread as the HES on my 1150 failed on the way to work last friday. Just got around to reading it.
I second the help and advice here on ADV, its great to have a global network for help that has the experience

I shall post up a thread when I get mine all together again, including some alternate methods we used

thanks

Costa Rica is a popular retirement spot for ex-Patriots from the US. I understand the living is cheap and the country is beautiful. Donnie, once your journey ends, anything further you can tell us about C R would be appreciated.

It is very pretty! Cokes are $1.80 to $2.50 depending on where you buy them. Quite a shock when you cross the border where they were 70 to 80 cents. McDonald's is MS price plus 40%. I paid $25 for a small cabin in the outback and up to $117 for a nice place in San Jose. Road side restaurants were priced about the same or a bit higher than MS. A lot higher if you are a big coffee drinker, because anywhere south of the US sells their coffee by the cup. I am sure it is cheaper because everyone says it is, but on my pass through, it was not any cheaper than places I visit in the states, plus gas is $1 to $1.50 higher per gallon.
