Our bikes are filthy. Our riding gear is filthy. All motorcycles need servicing and new tires. Some, including mine, need much more than tires. Some of us need to heal. All of us deserve to revel in what we have accomplished. Each toll booth on Route 5 meant we were closing in on Santiago, a major milestone. We have survived the toughest road section of the Discover Our Earth Expedition. We feel proud.
Twenty miles from our Santiago hotel, we waited for escort by the Caribineros De Chile, the Chilean Motorcycle Police, arranged for by the very supportive local BMW dealer. It was photo time when they arrived. Tadeusz, an incredibly funny and delightful rider from Brazil, begged for unneeded forgiveness from one officer. The faces of Rienhard, from Germany, and Terry, from Florida, express samples of the emotions we are experiencing.
