It seems to me that it consumed nothing meaningful. In preparation for the trip I change the oil and filter and leave it to the high mark of the viewfinder. Now it's the same.

I'm glad you could go out and ride the motorcycle. In a month must start here the rainy season and I will have to reduce my riding.
January February and March are the best months to come to Panama on a motorcycle. It's the dry season. It rains very little although in Bocas del Toro it rains all the year.
The changes of the seasons are not noticed. However we have approximately three or four months of dry season and 8 or 9 months of rainy season. The rainiest months are October and November. During the construction of the Panama Canal in 1906 the American President Theodore Roosevelt visited Panama to inspect the works and chose the month of November because it was the most rainy and wanted to know the experience.

The man on top of the mountain didn’t fall there.
