Puerto Vallarta on Friday 15th

Hugo,

I'm sorry to miss a fellow biker! I will be in Puerto Vallarta on Friday, Feb 15th, albeit without a moto. Going to get some dental work done..

Where are you planning to go down south? What are you riding? I've lived in Peru most of my life and motoed all over including Brazil and Bolivia. Around the Block 2007 | Is there any way I can advise you?

Glad to help, Toby (charapa)

Been a while

Mollydog,

Ive air freighted 13 bikes into Peru over the years, but they were all into the jungle (tax free) and it has been a while. I used to run a National Circuit Motocross in Pucallpa, Peru. One of those (a Honda XR650L) was for a friend that keeps it available for me whenever I come back, so I havent shipped anything lately. Sorry. Also, my contacts for that kind of thing is in the jungle (Iquitos and Pucallpa)

Rge dental work is going well. I used to do it on my trips to Peru, but here in Mexico they have holistic dentistry which is much better. I am Mercury-free now!!!

Toby

Where you at

Hugo ,

Heading north and at Turillo Peru for a day or so .. then on to Mancoura beach and into equador. Sounds like you might be in the neighbourhood. If so drop me a line and stop by for a cold one . I wouldn,t mind hearing about your experiances coming south.
