Starting my journey in late August/September from Colombia

I will start my journey in late August (bike officially arrives to Cartagena August 30.)

If any of you are around, please message me.

Bike: DR650

Plan to spend about a month in Colombia and then to Ecuador for about 1 1/2 months. I don't have a true itinerary and will figure it out once I am there.

I speak spanish and plan to be on the budget side of things.

Spend as much time as you can in Colombia. It's beautiful and a rider's paradise.

Same here: around mid September (Colombia start south, budget, Spanish/Portuguese, open itinerary....)
In So Cal trying to decide whether to buy a KLR here and Air Freight down....

........... or buy a "travel bike" in South America.

Anyone, might it work to "just go" and find travel bike in Colombia this time 'on the fly' this time of year?
BTW, is it easier to locate a travel bike elsewhere in South America?

Thanks for all advice.

Thanks for that. In touch with Mike to try to sort out legal doubts about a bike with expired import permit.
