Harley Davidson; Road Trip In Medellin

Harley Davidson's on parade in Medellin

June seems to be a very popular month for festivals in Medellin, with the addition of "Bike Week" June 27th, 28th, 29th and 30th to end the month on the back of a Harley Davidson. Why not take a ride on the wild side in Colomabia.

Interesting motorbike experience from someone whe rode their motorcycle through Colombia.

Dear Everyone,

Colombia has been truly amazing I shall remember it with affection always. There are so many people who helped in various ways and a contingent of the Medellin bikers rode halfway to Cali with me. It was an escort, but they will do anything to get out and ride together in a group (singly is considered a bit too dangerous), and they sure can ride too, on those twisty mountain roads. Many thanks to Miguel at Miguel Motos, a BMW aficionado, who put me up for a week at a moment’s notice, and who let me ride his 1955 twin on last Sunday’s ride to Lake Calima.

My bike was not up to that ride because my shock absorber broke, the left side. The Millennium Ride suspension question is becoming a bit of a joke. Anyway, now with my seventh pair, one handmade in Medellin (thanks Servi Amortiguadores Palace), the other handmade in Cali (thanks Panamericana Amortiguadores).

The Harley Davidson culture in Colombia deserves a mention.

Colombia’s sole Corporate Sponsor is Auto Andromeda SA the Hyundai dealer. Colombia goes on the Hall of Fame with pride. Bye for now, Simon Milard.
