Beginner touring bike for Bolivia/Peru
I am planning a trip through Bolivia & Peru with a friend in a month and could use advice on the best bike for the occasion. I have limited bike touring experience (have only done the Mae Hong Son loop in Thailand on a semi-automatic 125cc bike on tar roads for a week ... by most standards, a relatively easy route).
Now we're considering going to Bolivia and Peru for 1.5 months where a lot of the travel will be on dirt (we've both ridden dirt bikes in the backcountry so are comfortable riding). We'll be traveling minimally with just backpacks that we plan to strap to the back of the bike with bungees. I think a 250cc would be great for us. Anyone traveled in the region before that would suggest an economical motorbike for us to look for? We'll be buying one when we're there.
Thanks so much!!
