Peru for 2 months. good idea?
After a couple of trips where I had insane mileage (3k miles in a week comes to mind. Wearing out a £150 tyre in a week don't feel good) I seem to have gone to the other extreme. The last trip away I spent 6 months having a fantastic time dirt biking on an ancient XR500 in NZ and never Actually made it to OZ......
My question is this; 2 months in Peru, riding, chillin, scratchin beneath the surface to see how things tick along in that country.
Or a bigger road trip, taking in a few of the bordering countries like Bolivia and Argentina?
3 things are certain.
1. Any distance on the map is 4 times longer than you think it is.
2. I am not riding at night. The himilaya with no headlamp had me praying to every god I could remember the name of and as one mate put it while riding in Morocco "you can't see a black donkey on a black road on a black night very easily........."
3. these 2 points will reduce my range.
I'm hoping to buy a bike out there (where ever "there" will turn out to be)
Your views will be very welcome.
