With a newly rebuilt engine, and a whole vast Colombia ahead of us, Kaleidos and I set out to see what we could find. Since our starting point after the airfreight was in Bogota, the sprawling rowdy capital of the country, it seemed like the best route would be to first veer North East to the Eastern Cordillera of the Andes for Bocaya and Santander Departments, before eventually heading North West to the Caribbean Coast.
At 46,000 miles, it was time for a major service on this bike before we could start exploring South America. Bogota, Colombia is the perfect place to do this given that Royal Enfield has a very big presence here, and labor and parts are more affordable and available than in Central America. I knew that my Himalayan would need some major repairs here after about 10,000 abusive miles through Central America...
