Just for reference if anyone is coming to Manaus looking for tyres.

I tried to get a new front for my GS1200. i would have liked a TKC80 but didn't expect to gind one. I tried several places (mentioned in other threads. Very helpful but couldn't get what I wanted. They seemed to have every size but the one I wanted. I have gone with one slightly high on the profile.

Anyway here is a contact L Marques Moto Precas, Av Desemb Joao Machado, 6342, Al Vorada, Manaus. They are on the way in to town so you may want to stop off on your way in.

Sorry Kevin, that we have missed each other. Just picking up free wifi at a petrol station in Humaita. On the crossroad of the BR 319 and the Transamazonica.

Took us 4 nights camping on the BR 319.
Three days with an average speed of 15 km/hour
average fuel consumption 8 km/liter
Never used 4x4!

We had one night of heavy rain. Road condition very easy. I would say you could even drive it in a VW combi. Some holes have to be taken in consideration other than that, a nice drive in the park. When it rains more than two days however, I take it, it would be a whole different ballgame.

Adventurous greetings,
Coen

Thumbs up BR174 Boa Vista to Manaus

Hi,

Just finished this trip thought would add a few notes as I couldn't find a few answers to some questions I had when I looked.

Date: Sept 11&12th 2012
Road: BR174 Boa Vista to Manaus
Bike: Suzuki DR200
Tank 13.5 litres

Road in good condition some potholes but none really deep.
I did 500kms first day easy and 190ish next cruising 90-100km/hr

No need for extra gas longest section maybe 150kms with plenty of gas stations all the way.

The indigenous section you can't stop in was really pretty.

I have come through from Guatemala and am heading south towards Rio/BA. If anyone has other questions about Venezuala etc.

Cheers

Simon
