Turtles and bikers


I’m in Panama, preparing to cross the Darien Gap into South America. This involves getting a Brazilian visa, doing some work on the bike and sorting out a few details that have been left undone on the road. I expect to set sail, with the bike, on the 27th, spend about 5 days on the boat, and then land in Colombia from where I restart my ride.

The last few weeks have been pretty relaxing, but I’m itching to get going and ride a little harder again. I spent a few days on the beach in Costa Rica, watching the greenback turtles come in and lay their eggs. A pretty amazing sight. Then we rode into Panama and met up with 250 bikers from across the region for a few days of biker glory. Photos of both below.

The vultures were eating the turtle eggs...as were the locals, and their dogs. And me.

A whole lot of bikes. 250, I was told.
