Someone asked if you can go on a surfing safari on a motorcycle in South America. Sure, why not?
Last year I met Matt from Australia. Here he is standing in the rain outside the place we were staying in Medellin, Colombia:
He had graduated from a bicycle to a little XT225 which he had ridden down to South America from British Colombia Canada. Super nice guy. I walked around one evening for hours looking for a particular Colombian soda pop that he was fond of. I can’t remember the name of it, but it tasted like bubblegum. Yuck. But he liked it.
He wrote a ride report:http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=892684
I just checked his personal blog over at:http://www.afewsketchymoments.com
and see that he has gone back to riding mountain bikes in Nepal this year.
You meet some pretty interesting folks on the roads less traveled.
