This one is solely for SCS.

Always nice to find these kinds of things tucked in the gear while getting sorted out...

A little more Quito footage...



I like the enterprising ice cream vendor in the middle of the traffic jam.

Wonder what kind of calculation they would have to do here for Worker's Comp?



This might be a good time to review our planned itinerary.
  • Find our way out of Quito
  • Visit the Equator site(s)
  • Follow front wheel of bikes for remainder of trip
  • Return to Quito
Sounds simple enough.

Looks strangely familiar

Too damn funny! Having ridden with Whizzerwheel about 50,000 miles I should have warned EC about the left turns from the right lane. Or the warning of "we're taking the second right" as he takes off and passes multiple vehicles on the left while lane splitting.

Yep, thats Whizzerwheel. How about riding into a new town, getting a block or three in and suddenly stopping in the middle of the road? I'm sure that will be on the next video.

All the while, I'm enjoying the ride!

Quito equals. 5 lanes of traffic on a 2 lane road. And a double yellow center does not equate to no passing. Just go with the flow. :-)

Right on track, we do eventually find our way out of Quito and locate the Ecuator site...






Classic tourist pose...



Just not enough. We've got to get the bikes in the shot.



Against the State Department's recommendations we find an unsuspecting local to take the shot for us...



None of them were carrying mustard or ketchup or feces so we took the chance.

Once they took the shot, their girls wanted to get a shot of themselves with the bikes...



While hanging around contemplating going in or not another local wanders over and strikes up a conversation - in English. He speaks English quite well but says he doesn't get to practice much. He goes on to tell us about the 'other' equator.

That is the one we're looking to see. We load up and make our way towards it...

Do tell!

I like the first video with us leaving Freedom...

WW: "Are you ready?"

EC: "No..."

Whizzerwheel takes off...



Thanks for coming along!

A classic case of motorcycliata dyslexiama
