…and sell the motorbike 😤
So sad to think we worked so hard to make it ready…
One of the last stages of preparation
That was an improvement that I had been preparing for months: adding saddlebags to finally have room to load a little more.
And I wanted to find an cheap solution since this type of motorcycle accessory is generally rather expensive.
So with Manu’s help, I was able to assemble the structure to support the saddlebags. And I found some second hand saddlebags in great condition and really well suited to the use.
Blame it on the Covid
Unfortunately these days, it’s already not easy to travel in a standard way; and crossing borders with a vehicle is simply not possible in South America.
At least the way I planned it: French Guiana ▶️ ️Brazil ▶️ ️Colombia.
Ultimately the vehicle becomes more blocking than else, so I have to sell it. And therefore it’s imperative to prepare it.
Besides the usual technical checks and the washing of course; to make the bike nickel-chrome, I wanted to repaint the tank fairings and remove the scratches there.
It was a first opportunity to learn.
Up for sale
(not giving up)
Let’s say it’s just a postponement.
Most importantly, with the driving license everything will be easier next time.
And despite everything, driving 6 months on French Guiana’s roads have trained much.
By the way…
Arriving at Bogota airport, I saw this model on sale.
These 150 engines are quite common here and for real, it’s rather tempting.
