On Tuesday I headed over to La Garita to sell my BMW GS Pro Boots. Too heavy for me. On the way back, I took a gravel road that put me in the vicinity of Turrucares.
Sadly, it’s one of those roads where people go dump garbage. Bummer.
At Turrucares, I decided to keep riding rather than go home.🤣 Why not?
So I headed over to Puriscal on route 136, which I like because it is solitary and has a wild energy to it.
Seeing the sign for Llano Grande, I decided to go check it out, since I had never been. I really liked the road over, but didn’t stop for photos.
Llano Grande is a tiny mountain town.
I continued through it, then stopped to speak with a cyclist. He told me the road down to Chucas dam is rough, so I did not continue. I hope to go with a group some day.
I then went to Puriscal and headed over to San Pablo, stopping for breakfast at El Fogon de Doña Emilce. It was a gorgeous morning to be out and about.
Heading home on 27, I took a little dirt road on the side to see where it went. It was obviously a day of exploring new roads. Always fun!!
It ended at a gate, and that was that. Short, but fun, 400 meters.🤣
And, since I was on a roll, I checked out another road by Balsa, which also ended at a gate. Turning Sahara around, my foot slipped on the loose little gravel, and down she went.💔
She enjoyed her rest while my two friends from Moto Partes y Repuestos Atenas came to help.
With my recent surgery and bad back, I do not dare to even try to lift her.
Auto partes al rescate!! Excelente servicio al cliente!
Yeah. Considering I was not planning on riding, I sure had a lot of short and sweet adventures. 🤣
