Ken and Javier completed their work on the Beemer about 5:00 P.M. today.  A quick ride and a thorough inspection by Javier showed no leaks.  I am planning a short ride and another inspection tomorrow and if all is still O.K., I will cross the border into Uruguay Friday morning.

I am anxious to be on my way, but I want to make certain the bike is in top shape before I actually head out.  Several of the riders here at Dakar Motos are leaving either Thursday or Friday but certainly new riders will arrive. 

The weather has cooled here in Buenos Aires but I am certain that as I ride north into Brazil, I will encounter hot days and nights.  By the tiime I reach Belem, the temperature will be above 100 degrees F. and the humidity will be above 90.  Something to look forward to!
