Heidi spots a bunch of Adventure motorcycles and some guys standing around them. We go over to take a photo.
I say "How are you guys doing?" "Where are you from?" I say "We are on our way to South America" they point to one guy, saying he rode down there. I ask if anyone is an ADVrider. I say "I'm cavebiker" One guy leaps forward with his hand out "I'm FlyingAvanti!" Unreal, this guy and his wife Sandy are like our heroes. They cruised, 2-up through Central America and South America and posted one of the top Ride Reports on advRider.com. I have posted to his thread several times and we have e-mailed each other.
FlyingAvanti is full of life telling us all sorts of information about our route through Central and South America. He is super sincere and offered to help us in any way through e-mails and phone calls. The whole gang is warm and friendly. We talk for a long time. They are taking the ferry over to the mainland and heading to Copper Canyon next.
We felt like we met a legend and let me tell you, he surpassed all our expectations.
