    $12,000? How many meters squared? What about foreign property ownership?

    Do you use an external filter when putting gas in your tank? Are there any places in Nicarauga to rent a motorcycle if one were to fly in? Nice travels!

    the lot is 1,000 squared varas. varas is an old measurement which was the measurement of an arm length of a noble man. short anwer a vara is 0.81 meters.

    foreign property ownership is possible...

    on my 650 Dakar i put in the gasoline as it is. the only time i had to reset the on board 'computer' was in brasil where gas contain alcohol and the bike wasn't doing the mixture right. other than that the bike runs great even with gas bought from a bottle.

    yes, that is my new business
    so far i just have Yamaha's DT 175cc but planning to have 450/650 BMWs at some point (i'm looking for investors if anyone is interested).
    you can fly into Managua, i'll have someone pick you up, spend the night at my house and take off on your Nicaragua adventure.

    I'm also doing guided tours which can be combined with property scounting...
