Ricardo, Vivian and I completed our Baja Adventure in May 2016.  Little did I realize that it would be seventeen months before we explored new roads.  Seventeen months away from the motorcycle adventures....much too long.  But in the next few days I will fly into San Jose, Costa Rica,  meet Ricardo, mount the BMW waiting for me and head north for the mountain roads of Nicaragua.  Maybe the rain will stop. It has now rained over thirty straight days in Nicaragua and much of Costa Rica.

At my age I hated will riding in the rainy mountains....but the resulting mud slides bring even greater challenges.  So Monday evening Ricardo will me me at the San Jose airport and Tuesday we will complete all the legal paperwork required to take the bikes out of Costa Rica.
