“I come from Colombia and I really like learn new things. I really like to travel, especially by motorcycle. In Colombia, I traveled throughout the country on a motorcycle, a Suzuki V strom 650, currently I miss my motorcycle a lot and it is one of the projects that I hope to be able to do here in the United States, traveling through all its states. I have traveled through a small part of Latin America such as Chile and Ecuador. I am hoping to do create my own custom trip project “South America Route” which will consist of traveling by motorcycle from Colombia to the south of the continent, crossing all possible countries.”
