Exploring Costa Rica.

12

Dave,
once You get out of the trafic of Central valley, this country is mind blowing with its beeauties. but it is totally frustrating in the crowded areas.
The idea of this thread is to invite others to adventure themselves out of the comon tracks and enjoy exploring.
In CR the beauty starts right out off the typical tourist traps and the city limits.
There is still a lot of original country ground to explore.
And the nicest people you find in the back lands.

The texts in the wikiloc site are in 3 languages on this same purpose. explore and have fun.

2 nice roads for adventurous natures that look worse on the map then they are in deed. But take a filled ice box with you for a picknick, because there are no snack bars nor neighbourhood shops on them.

Both roads are pretty easy, but long and solitary.

The Wikiloc website is pretty amazing. I'd not seen it before. Thanks for posting all these rides. I can only dream of going there.

Unless there is a sidecar rental business in San Jose?

Ned,
there is at least one solo motorcycle rental down town...BMW and Harley are too pricey for me to consider them as serious offers.

I was trying to convince them to add a rig to their stable, but, haven't had luck yet. (sadly any dummy can rent a car but the solo bikes eat up the car earnings in maintenance and ...now imagine rigs on our streets and roads...was their answer several times)(more then one rider they had to send home with plaster casts, and they do not want to send anybody home in a box.)
I consider the option in case some surpluss money comes into the cashier perhaps in setting up a KLRrig as social service...pretty difficult to fulfill after the accumulated losses in the last years.

A new ride in hot summer while you were shivering with cabin fever:
March 18th I searched for access to the continental division.
In Zarcero from both sides all you have to look for is the road or the farm Chayote = watersquash.

Photos will come later too. It was an adventure on a solo street bike, where a motocross bike was needed.
And where the rig never would have entered....former oxcart roads, that now are just good enough for horses.
As older you get. as more right you have to play!!!
Sven 😉

A new exploring trip: I ask myself how a Ural can last such steep climbes. For something I am on my 4th final drive.  The first 98km were the interesting parts and their unpaved parts were mind / bike blowing.

 

Now we have a Ural rental too

On the way home I got stuck in such a traffic jam that confirms the statement from before:)
