Most of you have heard or experienced about the famous hospitality of Jorge Cuatrochio, called Pollo, owner of THE one place for motorcycle travellers in south america, "La Posta del viajero en Moto" in Azul, Argentina. His newly installed website http://www.laposta-azul.com/ has been developed and is provided by travellers, dedicated to give something back for his continuous efforts for the motorcycle travelling community.
Now the time has come, that we, the former guests from all over europe, switch the roles with Pollo - for once, we got the chance to offer him an unforgettable time in Europe!!

While being mostly in middle-europe during his visit, a highlight for him will be the participation at the "Motorrad Reise Treffen" in Gieboldehausen, Germany.
