Day 4: Endless Panamericana

Day 4: 11th of August

Firstly we had to find a supermarket in Sullana to organize the last things we need for the next camping night and then finally left this city, heading south on the Panamericana. It's all just straight, can get boring, but still an awesome experience with these endless streets.

After about 200 kilometers more we were looking for a suitable place to camp near to the street and we found an absolute gorgeous place.

Negritos - the morning after

Waking up after a windy night in our tents, cooking coffee and prepare to leave. As we packed our stuff onto our bikes, I noticed a loss of air of the rear tire at the other bike, the Suzuki V-Strom. Conclusion: After 200km, two bikes are not able to continue. Questions like "How's this going to end up?", "Why did we think we can cross all Perú without knowledge of a mechanic? Without knowing the bikes for more than a few days?"

Segundo dia - Mud fight after sea views

First night camping was totally fine and we could even have a shower in the morning and got bread with eggs for breakfast before we left.

The adventure starts today, first time we'll be able to ride our bikes for many kilometers on the Panamericana Norte and find a wild campsite somewhere near to our route. Plan for today: Tumbes - Zorritos - Mancora and then find a campsite after Talara, near to Negritos.

The arrival until the start of the trip

After a long flight with one stop in Chicago and one in Panamá, I finally arrived in Guayaquil last tuesday. After a relaxing night I did a test ride with my Versys and it was just terrible.

Patience and trust

Well, a few weeks ago I wrote about the purchase and delivery of the bikes, and said that two of three are already bought. Time goes, things change. All bikes are bought and until yesterday just two have been delivered.

My Versys at the mechanics in Quito

The third one, my Kawasaki Versys 650, has had a hard time and I want to tell you about my experience I made with the guy who sold it and the mechanic who was 'trying' to fix it.

Mobile phone frequency compatibility

One more thing to check, if you want to be sure, that you gonna be able to contact your beloved ones when you're there, is the compatibility of the mobile frequencies and your mobile phone's hardware.

It's not a big deal anymore, as most of the providers in most countries support the main mobile phone manufacturers hardware such as Samsung, Apple, Huawei or HTC.

Anyway, you don't have to know a lot to ensure that your mobile will work, just enter its manufacturer and the model on this site:
