ECUADOR 2016 – AN ADVENTURE WITH ALTITUDE

 

Ecuador Slider copy copy
On August 13 of this year I gave the first nod towards my planned Ecuador Motorcycle Adventure. On September 23, I posted the first details of the trip. Myself and 2 lads from Toronto were heading to Ecuador in 2016 for a self guided off-road Ecuador motorcycle adventure tour.

Yun-Kan, whom I had ridden with once before, had heard of my plans to head to Ecuador and he sent me a message on Facebook, floating the idea of joining in. A friend of Yun-Kan’s – David – was also interested, and just like that there were three of us planning a South American Adventure.

A short while later, Yun-Kan mentioned that there were two more riders interested in joining. While waiting for them to confirm, yet another rider – this one from Alaska – sent me an email here at advjoe.ca and asked about joining in the fun.

And so, lo and behold – six of us headed off to ECUADOR for a an off-road motorcycle adventure.
