We recommend Honda Ebem too, they let us have some space to work on the bike and advised when needed.
They have a fullon workshop, even redrilling cylinders etc.
Definately a place where you can get stuff done.

other repair and parts options in Santa Cruz, Bolivia

I had the 50.000 km service on my BMW 1200 GSA done at

Andar Motos
Juan Carlos Cespedes
Tel 341-4141
340-5732
cell 773-36534
Av. Banzer 656

A few caveats:
1. Although the service was performed well enough as I can say now 7000km later, I definitely felt overcharged.
2. A friend needed to have his Wilbers rear shock fixed (didn't hold gas). The "specialist" mechanic said "no problem, I've done this many times". Result: He lost a piece while dissembling it, the shock held neither gas nor oil afterwards and my friend bounced on the spring alone all the way to Asuncion, PY, where he got a new rear shock.
3. Not sure about the street address, could be Juan Carlos' private address. Best call and ask. Or contact Andar Motors S.R.L. - BMW Bolivia the local BMW car dealer. They do sell a few bikes, but Juan Carlos' shop does all the technical stuff for them. You could ask for Nicolas Demmer, phone 3-3353160 who also speaks German.

Also: Juan Carlos' brother Pablo Cespedes runs

Kawamoto s.r.l.
Av. Christo Rendedor (ex Banzer) No. 950
Tel +591-3-3415976
Cell 760-05904

Pablo also sells clothing, tools, etc., I even found a tubeless repair kit at his shop.

Membership - help keep us going!

Horizons Unlimited is not a big multi-national company, just two people who love motorcycle travel and have grown what started as a hobby in 1997 into a full time job (usually 8-10 hours per day and 7 days a week) and a labour of love. To keep it going and a roof over our heads, we run events (22 this year!); we sell inspirational and informative DVDs; we have a few selected advertisers; and we make a small amount from memberships.

You don't have to be a Member to come to an HU meeting, access the website, the HUBB or to receive the e-zine.
