James is going to make one of these when we get back to Claremont.
They are everywhere and seem to be very handy! They cargo people, crops, wood and supplies.

We had quite a walk-a-bout today.
These are some pictures of the old downtown in David.

These baskets are where you put your garbage for pick up.
They also have this system in Costa Rica.

We took a bus ride to the new part of town to buy our camera.
I sat next to this mother and her son and we had a happy talk together. He smiled after I showed him his picture.




All of the buses are packed! It's .35 cents a ride. Colleen

There is a real contrast from the old downtown to the new section....
Black Friday is alive and well in David, Panama!!

These two young men were drumming as loud and fast as they could.
It was LOUD! They were hired to attract business to the store.
You had to look. There was no denying them!

The only nice feature at the purple house. The place borders on being a wreck. Expectations are not high down here..... people are satisfied with conditions as they are and don't see any reason to improve their property.

All of the photos that we posted tonight were taken with the camera that is still in the process of drying out..... the camera wouldn't always focus(i.e. this photo) and I still had every other picture that had the lines running through them.

On the bright and clear side, I have a new camera to work with that is water proof and it is all set up in Spanish!

Colleen did our laundry here at PURPLE

Then she did a good job of getting all the pics down loaded

I adjusted the drive chain tension on both bikes and tightened a few bolts.

Those pesky exhaust flange bolts will NOT stay tight. Can you use blue Loctite in a hot area like that?

I ought to have safety wired them.

Also colleen's bike was popping more on decal, yes, her exhaust was loose in a couple of places.

Almost 4000 miles and only adjusted the chains twice now and tightened a few bolts.....these are sturdy bikes I'll tell you. We have been riding at an indicated 60-70mph in between stops and all is good. Still have the 16 front sprockets, just a tad too high in slow town, but work well enough. Nice at an indicated 70mph (which is a GPS 65mph)
I have been using my GPS as speedo in KMs. Also my GPS works great in Panama, I got a micro card in Amazon for $24.

Well, off to bed. We need an early-ish start to go find a beach camp to kick it.

Thanks for looking in, it means a lot.

Hi guys,
Your report is well done and worth reading, especially for someone thinking about this type of undertaking. I wonder if you've had any time to reflect on what you may have done differently. I certainly see the waterproof camera, and safety tying the exhaust flange bolts, etc. but is there anything that stands out at this point that's not obvious to us arm chair travelers?
Thanks

Colleen and James, I have not looked forward to a RR this much since JDowns and I am sure that you will take that for the high compliment it is! I love the good-natured approach that you take to the people you meet and the obstacles you encounter. Thank you for doing this and although we will miss you while you are out of touch on the Rat, we will look forward to your updates afterwards that much more!
I do have one question however regarding the DOT hazmat placards sported by Dr. Black. Do these ever get you the wrong kind of attention??

Hansi! Yes, all on schedule. Expenditure is up, we didn't consider border crossings and tolls.
