Amazing people. Everything is in the process of being sorted, up to and including a new frame. And I´ve ordered a new screen and tankbag in the UK to be sent direct to Phil to go in the crate.
Many, many thanks to Phil the Boxer Man for all the organisification he´s doing for me. I must owe him several crates of Paddy´s by now (incidentally, it was on optic in the bar in Phnom Penh).
And I had a call from Gustavo Johnson in Bogota (Colombia) who´s the main man for BMW in S America. He´s very good-looking - he sent me pix of himself with his bikes (he has a yellow 1200GS) and his Land Rover Defender 110. How about that for coincidences? He´s going to help with getting new tyres for me from Santiago.
I´m still feeling very bruised and second-hand. The ribs seem to be healing nicely, but it´s the collarbone which will take the time. Hurts a lot. Very difficult to get out of bed and to get dressed and undressed. But the local Cabernet Sauvignon/Merlot/Shiraz medicines are a great help :-) especially as the good ones can cost as much as two quid a bottle :-)). Won´t be able to claim them on the insurance, though, despite being prescribed by a doctor.Posted by Cynthia Milton at April 15, 2005 06:56 PM GMT
