I was over speeding, it’s true.

We were three on my bike.

And all of us without a helmet.

The bike is hijacked – the police man had told me standing in front of my hospital bed.

How long will it be for? – I has asked

Forever – and he had left…

Three weeks have passed since the accident and I am now back to Familia Feliz.

The volunteers and directors of the orphanage dealed with the police and managed to get my bike back and 300 bolivianos to pay.

They had asked us 500 – commented Doru

Thanks God – I reply

I’ll be here at Familia Feliz for a while, documenting the two house getting built for the donators, since the project “2 Homes for Familia Feliz Orphans”.

In case you have advice about how I could find cheap parts for my bike, plese let me know.

Un abbraccio

Un pensiero su “Bike hijacked forever

    Holamigo,

    I found your blog through BJ. Nice use of WordPress. I used to work with WordPress, wrote some plugins, etc. 🙂

    I’m also on a tour, also on CS. I started in San Francisco some 17’000 miles and 6 or 7 months ago, in April. On a KLR650.

    Sorry to read about your crash. What kind of lights do you have on the bike? I considered getting an HID upgrade, but I heard there’s a new HID bulb coming out in 2 months that is much easier to install. I haven’t decided what priority to give to front lighting yet…

    You might be interested in the spot satellite messenger. I got one recently and use it to drive my map, so you can track my progress in real time. It’s been working pretty well so far.

    Good luck, keep the rubber side down amigo.

    Warmly – Callum.
