Buying a small motorbike in nicaragua and then drive it through central america.
After having had a great motorbike trip through south east asia on a vietnamese-purchased suzuki 125cc motorbike without any problems at borders or with police, I would like to do the same in central america.
At the moment I'm in Nicaragua and am looking for a bike to buy. Now ofcourse I hear a lot of: 'You can't do this and you can't do that',( from travellers and locals) but i heard the same in SE-Asia and it turned out it wasn't a problem at all.
I've been surfing on the net but I can only find info about people who have ridden their big 650cc touringbike from back home with all the official documents into and through central america. However, i can't find anything about buying a local bike (a small one, like 125-150cc) and driving that across different countries.
Is there anyone who has done such a thing and can give me some insight about how it works with bordercrossing, policecheckpoints and to register (or not register) a locally purchased bike?
I could really use some info!
