There are a lot of people out there with a lot more bike and experience than I have. But I have been riding South and Central American dirt since I was 19. Thats about 300 years ago in dog years. I have recently started riding Guatemala while working some construction projects. Yamaha DT175 2 stroke is the volkswagen of Guatemala. The country is still a little unsettled, but is blessed with bad roads and volcanoes. Can't beat it. My plan is to ride the F650GS down next winter on the way to Ushuia.
The pics are the best I can do now. As I am still trying to figure out how to post them on this site.
