25-Loja to Macará, the border with Peru

Today a great ride again and change in elevation. Arrived in Macará early and was good. Just before the tropical rain. 

Not many miles, but wanted to be early at the border.

Macara has not many  places to stay overnight, but a border towns has people waiting to cross so found a room in the only place to stay.

 Will see how the crossing goes tomorrow.


ADVriders Comment:


I hope you are well stocked with Flagyl and Cipro.



Thanks for your recommendation. I have Cipro with me, was no need for it, 

but will put on the notes Flagyl (Metronidazole)


I'm also a CRF250L owner. Could you talk more about what mods you have done to the bike?Looks like Flatlanders skidplate and radiator guard. MoskoMoto BC35s (I use them on my NC700x). What racks are those? Have you done anything to strengthen the rear subframe? Have you done any suspension mods?

ADVrider question:

Pictures which have you in it, are so few, I'm curious.


Riding by myself there are not many opportunities to take pictures of me, sometime I ask someone when I want a memory of the that place. Will try my best, my family probably want to see me too.
